Original Broadway Cast – Dance Of The Robe lyrics

It's knowing what they want of me
That scares me
It's knowing having followed her
Must lead
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 a doubt
Or sign of weakness
My nigh, on impossible duty is clear
But if I can rekindle our ancestors dreams
It's enough, it's enough, it's enough, it's enough
