The performers wear fake eyelashes (preferably LED eyelashes if available) and coordinated outfits

Verse I

Roll on, Roll offperformer 1

Egg white in the video? No. I don’t know how to do that. Waggle finger

You just need a very large clean metal bowlperformer 2 performer has a prop of a very large clean metal bowl

Make sure there’s no ahm ahm, no ahm ahm, no ahm ahamperformer 2 + performer 3 performers go into formation creating a multi-armed being whose arm moves are inspired by this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoBatSC_2_A&list=RDxa2-PTtrhck&index=4

Bridge performer 1 + performer 2 + performer 3

During the bridge the performers fan their eyes with their hands. It is as if their friend has just told them something extremely emotional and sad and they want to express empathy with tears, however they are wearing heavy mascara so they must make as if they are fanning away the tears which are possibly really appearing and they also must let their friend understand through gesture that they don’t want to ruin their make-up because this would be disrespectful to appear with a bad appearance.

Chorus performer 1 + performer 2 + performer 3

Blehbluhbleblllehblebleh bleh the performers make the sign of the ibis bird with their right hand. This hand covers the area under the eyes of the performers while their tongue moves from side to side visible through their parted lips. If the performers are able to make a fish face gesture by sucking in their cheeks and forming a vertical bow with their lips, this is preferable. However Dina from Egypt understands it can be difficult for the performers to do and they may just waggle their tongues instead.

Verse II

Spend your Libra! performer 1

So today I read the bear economy is going downperformer 1 points down with index fingers

The bull economy is going up. Make a pair of bull horns with same fingers

How’s your internal core?

Is it strong? Open arms wide and walk backwards

If when you copying

You don’t copy the thing

Verse II

The knots weren’t secure

The mothers and fathers were disconnected loops

Incapable of integrating

Incapable of going unnoticed

We start conversing with the eggs

Or at least the absent

Dina It’s shouting I need to be choreographed
But that won’t be easyIt needs a very thoughtful choreography

Bea Yes
Dina But we are always thoughtful
Bea Yes. How about if we all stand behind each other and then different versions of ourselves keep running out from behind
Dina Or I have a better idea
You play in the front with the keyboard
Bea Yes
Dina And we stand behind you
Bea Yes
Dina And pretend like you have many arms
And heads
Bea Wow
Dina That’ll be amazing
Bea Wowee
Dina Then we will need a rotating floor
Bea Yippee
Dina To rotate us
Bea That’s the easy part. We can do it in a carpet saleroom
Dina Then we jump off stage
Bea and it’ll be like we left the planer
Dina And do a little spice girls inspired dance
Bea Planet. Yes
Dina But I’m not sure the dance will go well with the tune
We can just play the spice girls video in the background
Wow
That’ll be so cool
On a tv
Bea And everything gets reconciled by the end
Cause we were on the telly all along
Dina And you would be dressed as an egg
Me avocado
Rumiko bacon
Bea Yes. Maybe we can shrink ourselves. With a laser
Dina Oh it can just be a music video, no live performance, with a green screen
Bea Yes
Dina Then we add the spice girls in the background
Easy
Bea Peasey
Dina We can be even floating then
On a flying carpet
Bea yes
Dina Yes, yes, yes
Bea Another hit
Dina Bea this will be so good
Bea yes
