    Lyrics

    I am an Opera Singer
    I stand on painted Tape
    It tells me where I'm going
    And where to throw my cape

    I call my co-stars brother
    I call my co-star's name
    I play both good and evil parts
    I sing to Verdi's grave

    And every single morning
    By 10 AM I'm dressed
    My rehearsals last for hours and hours
    With dilligence I have been blessed

    Some people they call me monster
    Some people they call me saint
    My talent feeds my darker side
    Yet no one will complain

    I am an opera singer
    I sing in foreign lands
    I've sung for kings in Europe
    And emporers in Japan

    And after each performance
    People stand around and wait
    Just to tell me that they love my voice
    Just to tell me that I'm great

    I am an opera singer
    I will sing when you're all dead
    I sing the mountains crumbling apart
    I sing what can't be said

    I am an opera singer
    I sing in foreign lands
    Most people seem to know my name
    Or at least know who I am
