lyrics

The first time I killed a man
His name was Caesar, he was a friend
But some men just need killin’
And that was the plan

Until the director shouted ‘hold!’
And we took our notes as we were told
Yes, that was the first time I killed a man

When you tread the boards
You do what you must do
That’s the way of
Them Theatre Major blues

The second time I killed a man
It was Guildenstern & Rosencrantz
They were dead,
as they always feared

The tragedians were a chorus quick
Of love and blood and rhetoric
The second time I killed a man was weird!

When you tread the boards
You do what you must do
That’s the way of
Them Theatre Major blues

The last time I killed a man
Graduation was on the horizon
But the Scottish Play
Had me in its grip

Floating daggers, off with Macduff
Only three murderers makes it tough
But at least the last time I killed a man was quick

When you tread the boards
You do what you must do
That’s the way of
Them Theatre Major blues
Fine Arts ain’t no picnic
