My Greatest Hits, or How to Be a Moulin Rogue
Its my party and Ill die if I want to, die if I want to, die if I want to.
You would die too if it happened to you.
Oh, wait, my bad. Thats rather gloomy, no? Beg my pardon, I believe I did promise you a rose garden. The sunll come out tomorrow? No! Its out today, just look, will you? Silly! AIDS is not a death sentence! Its a life paragraph, its a command to go out, shake it, have a little fun.
No! A lotta fun! Stop the whining! Start the shaking! Make a tall pitcher of Crystal Light and invite that cute baby queen next door over for a disco break. And whatever you do, be upbeat! Think happy face! Think exclamation marks!!! Think pink! Not stink. Pink!!!
Wink, wink. I mean, where would I be without HIV? You got that right, nowhere! At least not anywhere nice. It is my sunshine, my only sunshine, it makes me happy, when skies are grey. It lifts me up, to the top. It lights up my life, it gives me hope, to carry on. It fills up my night with song. Its so beautiful to me, cant you see?
AIDS, AIDS, AIDS. AIDS, AIDS, AIDS. AIDS, AIDS, AIDS. Theres nothing you can do that cant be done. Theres nothing you can sing that cant be sung. All you need is AIDS. All you need is AIDS, AIDS. AIDS is all you need. All together now. Everybody.
When I find myself in times of trouble, HIV comes to me, speaking words of wisdom, HIV. And in my hour of darkness, it is standing right in front of me, whispered words of wisdom, HIV. Let it be, HIV. Let it be, HIV. There will be an answer. HIV. Theres still a chance that you will see. There will be an answer. HIV.
I dont need your sympathy, theres nothing you can say or do for me. And I dont want a miracle. Itll never change for no one. Now hear your reasons why. Where did you sleep last night? And was it worth it? Was it, worth it?
You betcha! Im strong enough!
HIV. All my troubles seemed so far away. Now it looks as though theyre here to stay. Oh I believe in HIV. Suddenly, Im not half the man I used to be. Theres a shadow hanging over me. Oh HIV came suddenly.
Why, he had to go I dont know, he wouldnt say. I said something wrong and now I long for HIV. Love was such an easy game to play. Now I need a place to hide away. Oh I believe in HIV.
Workin hard to get my fill. Everyone wants a thrill. Payin anything to roll the dice, just one more time. Some will win, some will lose, some were born to sing the blues. Oh, HIV it never ends it goes on and on and on and on. Dont stop believin. Hold on to the feelin.
Ooooh, Ive been to Nice and the Isle of Greece, and Ive sipped champagne on a yacht. I moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo, and showed em what Ive got. Ive been undressed by kings and Ive seen some things that a woman aint supposed to see. Ive been to paradise, and Ive been to HIV.
Sometimes the snow comes down in June. Sometimes the sun goes round the moon. Sometimes the very thing youre looking for is the one thing you cant see. But now were standing face to face. Isnt this world a crazy place? Just when I thought our chance had passed, you go and save AIDS for last.
So I chose freedom. Running around, trying everything new, but nothing impressed me at all. I never expected it to. And as for fortune, and as for fame. I never invited them in, though it seems to the world they were all I desired. They are illusions, theyre not the solutions they promise to be.
The answer was here all the time. I love you and hope you love me.
Dont cry for me HIV.
