Die Songtexte zum Musical

Wer zur nächsten Vorstellung textsicher mitgröhlen möchte, der kann sich durch die chronologisch geordneten Liedtexte arbeiten. Die, stellenweise das Versmaß vermissen lassenden, teilweise gewaltsam in die Melodie hineingeprügelten, deutschen Übersetzungen erspar ich mir, denn all zu oft gehen hierbei die Wortspiele kaputt. Das es anders geht, beweist das „Ansprechen einer Katze“ zum Finale. Zumindest könnt ihr die DVD mitgröhlen. Immerhin Gröhlen.
