Musical Interlude: Roy’s Lament
Some call me Roy, or Royson, or Royal.
(The last if they’ve no wish for life.)
I’ve been in this place a very long time,
Cutting hair and dispensing advice.
I’m the wealthiest, healthiest man in the town,
And everyone stops by my place.
I’ve learned all their stories one by one in those chairs
Their lives and their joys and their pains.
Most often I know just what to do,
But not now…
Everywhere that I look, everywhere that I see
...What is a man to do??
