  • Now I'm a little shy
    I like to stay homeo
    Shakespear's my guy
    Julie and Romeo
    Now I have found a girl so dear
    She cares not if Will he war queer
    Who cares not if Hammy made it with his Ma?
    To be or not to be my lover
    To me there could not be another
    To be or not to be's my plea
    It's as you like it you know
    To me there could not be another
    In hardback or in paper cover
    To be or not to be's my plea
    Some like the sun
    They'd be a Barbadian
    We think it's fun
    Here in Stratford-on-Avion
    Kids go to a disco show
    We stay and praise Malvolio
    Who cares if Will
    He dressed his guys as chicks?
    To be or not to be my lover
    ...
    We are a couplet heaven knows
    Undo my doublet baby
    And I'll undo your hose
    To be or not to be my lover
    It's as you like it you know.
