ACT ONE: Jackleen's Theme

lyrics

Jackleen: (To people on the street) Hey guys, want a pedicab ride?


Mean guy: Oh I’d ride with you anytime hunny.


Jackleen: (Disgusted) No thanks. (To others) Pedicab ride anyone?


Jackleen: How did I get here?
Why do I do this?
Following my father
Always gets me nowhere


Thought I wanted
A life worth having
But now I’m here in Austin
Pedaling, it’s so boring


All I want is what I deserve which is
My life back, the one I never had


Ever since I can remember,
I’ve been on the road
Snaking, snaking


I never even had a boyfriend
I never even had a first date
Snaking, just snaking


Jackleen: (To audience) Jersey? Yea he’s a nice guy, but...I need someone with a little more...money.


Jackleen: How do I find
A way out of this grind
I’m sick of all these assholes
Cat-calling me, they’re broke


Snaking, it works
But it makes me a jerk
And other riders hate me
Well except for Jersey


He’s so stupid, I take advantage
But I get by
And I don’t have to try


Ever since I can remember,
I’ve been on the road
Snaking, snaking


I never even had a boyfriend
I never even had a first date
Snaking, just snaking


Is that really all I have?
Is that really all I am?
Snaking, snaking


I want something more
I wanna mean more than
Snaking, snaking


Hisssssss
