Watch. This. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Patti Lupone singing “Blow Gabriel, Blow” from Anything Goes. In concert for George and Barbara Bush at the White House in 1988. Featuring the US Marine Band.

So YouTube updated their auto-generated text CC thing but it still couldn’t decipher Patti LuPone correctly

When you’re a Broadway Diva. 

When you’re home alone, drunk, horny, and single.

When you’re a Broadway Diva and you’re so bored that you watch the grass grow. 

When an English Muffin throws you out and his reasons are not good enough for you.

When you’re playing World of Warcraft with a Broadway Diva and she finds some mana. 

When you’re Patti LuPone
