INTRO
| C | G | Am  Am/G Am/F | E | Eaug |


VERSE
            A
Where's the orchestra?
Am             Am7      Am6  E/G#
Wasn't this supposed to be a musical?
G6      Eaug/G#  A
Here I am in the balcony
Amaj7              Eaug/G#           Em7        G/A
How the hell could I have missed the overture?
  Dmaj7    B7
I like the scenery
Bm7                Dm         Eaug
Even though I have absolutely no


VERSE
 A
Idea at all
Am            Am7     Am6      E/G#
What is being said despite the dialogue
G6 Eaug/G#  A
There's the leading man
    Amaj7          Eaug/G#        Em7        G/A
The movie star who never faced an audience
Dmaj7       B7
Where's the orchestra?


MIDDLE 8
Bm7
After all
        F     G C            C/B
This is my big  night on the town
   Am7                 Em
My introduction to the theatre crowd
    F                                Bm7-5
I assumed that the show would have a song
         Eaug
So I was wrong


VERSE (variation
           A
At least I understand
Am          Am7 Am6      E/G#
All the innuendo and the irony
G6  Eaug/G# A
And I     appreciate
    Amaj7            Eaug/G#     Em7              G/A
The roles the actors played, the point the author made


CODA
    Dmaj7     B7
And after the closing lines
Cdim7 A/C#      F#7sus      F#7
  And after the curtain calls
    G              D/F#
The curtain falls
   Dm/F             E7              [A]
On empty chairs ...     where's the orchestra?


OUTRO
| A | Emaj7/G# | A | Emaj7/G# |
| A | Emaj7/G# Emaj7 | 
| A | Emaj7/G# Emaj7 | 
| A | Emaj7/G# Emaj7 |
[melody: Allentown]
