A Word Sung on BYU’s Vaudeville Would Smell As Sweet …

by Pollyanna Eyler, dramaturg

Can you match these “WORDS” about “WORDS” on the left, with the famous musicals (as shown at BYU) on the right?

(2012@BYU) My Fair Lady

Then one day, I learned a word that saved my aching nose,

The biggest word you ever heard and this is how it goes.








(2013@BYU) Sound of Music marionettes

I’d like to say a word in her behalf,

Maria makes me laugh.







(2017@BYU) Mary Poppins

Words, Words, Words, I’m so Sick of Words,

I get words all day through, first from him, now from you

Is that all you blaggards can do?

Never do I ever want to hear another word, there isn’t one,

I haven’t heard.

Here we are together in what ought to be a dream;

Say one more word and I’ll scream!
