Strange as it seemsWhy do I like the first two lines so much? I guess it's their combination with the music, but Tim Rice at his best really was a great and witty lyricist, no? (Readers may think - what's so great about those lines? - but they are, for me, an incredibly persistent ear worm if I hear the song. Which I just did.)
there's been a run of crazy dreams,
and a man who can interpret could go far
could become a star...
