Brandon Uranowitz Sings William Finn’s Republican

Brandon Uranowitz Sings William Finn’s Republican
Tony Award nominee Brandon Uranowitz makes his Feinstein’s/54 Below solo debut! Fresh off his acclaimed turn as Mendel in the Broadway revival of Falsettos. Here Uranowitz sings “Republican,” a cut song from New Brain. We have included the lyrics for your enjoyment.
I had never met
A Republican
Till I went to college.
The mother of a classmate
said she hated Bella Abzug
And I said, ‘Are you a Republican?’
And she just laughed and I said ‘Bitch.’

At a cocktail party given by this
Republican
She said, ‘FDR would you like some pate?’
(She called me FDR)
I said I don’t eat pate served by a Republican
She said, ‘That’s undemocratic.’
And then she looked ecstatic.
She said, ‘FDR, could you be gay?’
And I said, ‘You’ll have to ask Eleanor.’

So I went to bed
with a Republican
and he didn’t prespire.
He said, as we’re undressing,
he admires Richard Nixon.
And I said, ‘Are you a Republican?’
And he just laughed and I said, ‘Bitch.’

So we’re in bed and I’m in him,
a Republican.
And I’m trying hard to make the fellow
burst.
To be in him and be screwing a Republican
is damn unappealing, but I can’t help but feeling
it’s nice to have the roles reversed.

Are you talking about the son?
Dick, you gotta be kidding.
You’re killing me. You’re killing me.
You’re giving me a headache.
These are people who are running the whole world.
These are people who are ruining the world.

I’m in a world surrounded by
Republicans.
And I’m thinking maybe this proves
God is dead.
While the good guys die,
it’s long-live the Republicans.
Though it’s not democratic,
This much I know emphatically
I’d rather God kill them instead.
YES!
I’d rather God kill them instead.
