What A Piece Of Work Is Man

In the style of

Hair (Broadway Version)

Lyrics

what a
piece of work is man
how noble
in reason

how infinite
in faculties
in form and moving
how express
and admirable
in action how
like an angel

in apprehension
how like a god
the beauty of
the world
the paragon
of animals

i have of late
but wherefore
i know not
lost all my mirth
this goodly frame
the earth seems to me
a sterile
promontory

this most
excellent canopy
the air
look you

this brave
o'er-hanging
firmament
this majestical roof
fretted with
golden fire

why it appears
no other thing to me
than a foul
and pestilent
congregation
of vapors

what a
piece of work is man
how noble
in reason

how dare they try
to end this beauty
how dare they try
to end this beauty

walking in space
we find
the purpose
of peace
the beauty of life
you can
no longer hide

our eyes are open
our eyes are open
our eyes are open
our eyes are open
wide
wide
wide
