France Burns: The Musical!

An excerpt from Iowahawk's failed musical, Les Risables. This selection is in honor of my sister, who is performing in Grease this weekend.

Streets of Paris. The toughs strut along the streets of the banlieu coming their hair, carrying bottles of gasoline.

How about this one guys?
That rusty hunk of junk? It’ll never make the TV news!
HASSAN (excitedly)
Why… this car is automatic! It's systematic! It’s flambee-matic! Why… it's a greased Peugeot!

We'll get some Molotov cocktails and some 2 euro Bics oh yeah
(Keep talking whoa keep talking)
Start a fire burnin’ like a pair of cheater slicks oh yeah!
(I'll get the petrol I'll kill to get the petro)
With a thunderous sound it’s gonna burn to the ground!
It’s gonna explode by the side of the road, a greased Peugeot!
Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go!

Look for parodies of The Music Man, Les Miz, Oklahoma, West Side Story, and more.
