Lyrics

I'm watching from the wing.
I'm thinking through my line.
Now I hear my cue.
This is my time.
I walk out on the stage. I can feel my heart pound.
I take a deep breath but I make no sound.

I've got stage fright!
I'm frozen up tight
Like a deer in a headlight.
I am not alright!
I've got....stage fright!

I feel dizzy in the head.
I feel weak in the knee.
I see many pairs of eyes
All looking at me.
Why are they looking at me?
I'm pretty certain I'm supposed to speak.
I open my mouth and make a tiny squeak.

I've got stage fright!
I'm frozen up tight
Like a deer in a headlight.
I am not alright!
I've got....stage fright!

My nose itches.
I can't scratch my nose.
I can't move my arms!
Why can't I move my arms?
It's this stupid costume!
I mean it's this lovely costume my mom helped me make!
That's it - I'm a tree! I know what I'm supposed to say! Breathe!

I am a tree. My leaves capture the sun's energy. I turn carbon
dioxide into oxygen for people to breathe.

I had stage fright.
I was frozen up tight
Like a deer in a headlight.
But now it's alright.

I had stage fright.
I had stage fright.
I had stage fright.
I had stage fright.
I had....stage fright.

My mom told me I only hesitated for a couple of seconds but to me
it felt like about an hour and a half!
