It Depends On What You Pay by Cast of The Fantasticks

Album: The FantasticksReleased: 1960
  • The musical The Fantasticks was released in 1960; although still being performed by amateurs half a century and more later, it is difficult to believe this song was not cut. Written by lyricist Tom Jones (not the singer) and composed by Harvey Schmidt, it is a song about rape, or more specifically a staged but failed attempted rape which is designed to make someone look like a hero. Instead, with lines like:

    The rape by coach; it's little in request
    The rape by day, but the rape by night is best

    It makes the lyricist look like a dork.

    "It Depends On What You Pay" is performed by the characters El Gallo, Hucklebee and Bellomy. >>
