This is the opening song to the show of ‘Slings and Arrows’ (which is good, look it up if you’re interested it’s too weird to explain)
Cheer up Hamlet
Chin up Hamlet
Buck up, you melancholy dane
So your uncle is a cad who murdered dad
and married mum
That’s really no excuse to be as glum
as you’ve become
So wise up, Hamlet
Rise up, Hamlet
Perk up and sing a new refrain
Your incessant monologizing fills the
castle with ennui
Your antic disposition is embarrassing to see
And by the way, you sulky brat,
the answer is “to be”!
You’re driving poor Ophelia insane
So shut up, you rogue and peasant
Grow up, it’s most unpleasant
Cheer up, you melancholy dane.
Yeah I’ve seen it. I’ve also seen the play live, which is much better and it’s hysterical! My friend who I saw it with made me a shirt with the best quote from the play on it- “Red, Green and Blue are real, yellow is a mystical phenomenon shared by everyone: Discuss.” And of course the shirt is bright yellow.
I love Rosencranz and Guildenstern. Its so funny. I love how they can’t figure out which one of them is which and one keeps making all the scientific discoveries. That is one of my favourite movies. We have it on VHS.
