​The Pitch (Spectacular Spectacular)

This song is by Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor and John Leguizamo and appears on the movie soundtrack Moulin Rouge! 2 (2002).

Spectacular, Spectacular!
No words of the vernacular
Can describe this great event
You'll be dumb with wonderment
Returns are fixed at ten percent
You must agree, that's excellent
And on top of your fee
You'll be involved artistically

What do you mean by that?

So exciting, the audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting, it will run for fifty years
So exciting, the audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting, it will run for fifty years

Elephants
Bohemians
Indians
And courtesans
Acrobats
And juggling bears
Exotic girls
And fire-eaters!

Muscle men
Contortionists
Intrigue, danger
And romance
Electric lights
Machinery
Oh, the electricity!

So exciting, the audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting, it will run for fifty years
So exciting, the audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting, it will run for fifty years

Spectacular, Spectacular
No words of the vernacular
Can describe this great event
You'll be dumb with wonderment

The hills are alive
With the sound of music

So exciting, the audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting, it will run for fifty years
So exciting, the audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting, it will run for fifty years

The courtesan and sitar man
Are pulled apart by an evil plan
But in the end she hears his song
And their love is just too strong

It's a little bit funny, this feeling inside

So exciting, the audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting, it will run for fifty years

The sitar player's secret song
Helps them flee the evil one
Though the tyrant rants and rails
It is all to no avail

I am the evil maharajah. You will not escape!
Oh, Harold, no one could play him like you could.
No one's going to.

So exciting, we'll make them laugh, we'll make them cry
So delighting

And in the end should someone die?

So exciting, the audience will stomp and cheer
So delighting, it will run for fifty years

Generally I like it
