about

The opening number of "Dorian-The Remarkable Mister Gray," a dramatic stage musical based on Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray."

1880, London-- a strange place where the opposite forces of gentility and discontent uneasily co-exist.

lyrics

--LILY, EMMA AND FAYE--
LA
LA LA LONDON
LA
LA LA LONDON

(THEY continue singing this refrain under the following lines which are divided between all characters on stage, except ALAN CAMPBELL.)

THERE’S A STORY IN
THE TALE OF DORIAN
GRAY

WHERE THERE’S SMOKE THERE’S FIRE
WE WANT TO INQUIRE
WON’T WAIT FOR JUDGMENT DAY
BEFORE WE HAVE OUR SAY
ABOUT DORIAN
ABOUT DORIAN GRAY
ABOUT DORIAN
ABOUT DORIAN GRAY

THERE’S SOMETHING GORY IN
THE TALE OF DORIAN
GRAY

THERE’S A STORY IN THE TALE OF DORIAN

THERE’S A STORY IN THE TALE OF DORIAN

THERE’S A STORY IN THE TALE OF DORIAN GRAY

THERE’S SOMETHING GORY IN THE TALE
OF DORIAN GRAY

THERE’S A STORY IN THE TALE OF DORIAN
THERE’S A STORY IN THE TALE OF DORIAN

--LILY EMMA AND FAYE--
SUMMERTIME
AND THE AIR ISN’T CHILLY
COULDN’T WE MEET FOR TEA?
I KNOW A PLACE IN PICCADILLY

SUMMERTIME
AND THE CITY COMES ALIVE
MEET YOU THERE AT THE SQUARE
PRECISELY ON THE DOT AT FIVE

--MEN join in--
I’LL MEET YOU THERE
MY LADY FAIR

LA LA LA LONDON

MEET YOU THERE AT THE SQUARE
ON THE DOT AT FIVE

--LILY--
I REMEMBER HIM VERY WELL
HE GOT LOST IN OUR EAST END HELL
HE WAS PRETTY AS A PICTURE TOO
BUT FOR HIM NONE OF US WOULD DO

--LILY AND HER GIRLS--
“NO NOT YOU!”

--LILY--
HE CATCHES EVERY EYE
OF EVERY PASSERYBY ON THE AVENUE

--LILY AND HER GIRLS--
LONDON TOWN
HE TURNS UPSIDE DOWN

--LILY--
SOME SAY LOOKS
DON’T COUNT FOR MUCH
BUT
I WOULDN’T MIND TO FEEL HIS TOUCH
WITH HIS LOVELY LIPS
AND SUCH

BONG BONG BONG BONG
BONG BONG BONG BONG
LA LA LONDON LA LA LONDON

--EMMA AND FAYE--
I HOPE HE LOOKS OUT
SHE’S GOT ‘ER HOOKS OUT

--FLOWER SELLER--
BUY YOUR LOVE A FLOWER
IT DON’T COST MUCH

--ALL--
HOW DO YOU DO
TODAY?
SO YOU DO
DO TELL
WHAT IS NEW?
DO YOU SAY?
NOW ADIEU – FAREWELL

SUMMERTIME
