Original Broadway Cast lyrics : "Dance Of The Robe"

It's knowing what they want of me
That scares me
It's knowing having followed her

Must leave
It's knowing that each person there
Compares me to those in my past

Whom I now succeed
But how can whatever I do for them now
Be enough, be enough


Aida, Aida, all we ask of you
Is a lifetime of service, wisdom, courage

To ask more, would be selfish
But nothing less will do
Aida, Aida


Your robes should golden
Your robes should be perfect

Instead of this ragged concoction of thread
But may you be moved by it's desperate beauty
To give us new life, for we'd rather be dead

Than live in the squaller and chain of the slave
To the dance, to the dance


Aida, Aida, all we ask of you
Is a lifetime of service, wisdom, courage
To ask more, would be selfish

But nothing less will do
Aida, Aida


(Dance break)

Aida, Aida, Aida, Aida, Aida


I know expectations are wild
And almost beyond my fulfillment

But they wont hear a word of abatement
Or sign of weakness
My loyal, un-passible duty is clear

But if I can rekindle our efforts it seems
