The tenth track of Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog's Commentary: The Musical, That's Me. Main Part by Maurissa Tancharoen.
Lyrics: Maurissa: I wrote all Penny's lines in the song, you know... I even sang her part up on the demo. But when it's time to cast the show, Do they want somebody yellow? Hell no. Noooooo...
Nobody's Asian in the movies, Nobody's Asian on TV. If there is a part there for us, It's a groupie in the chorus, That's me.
I begged and I pleaded, "Please don't pass me by" They say, "Hey, give us a hand Go and stand in the back with That fat guy" My role, though be it brief, at least It isn't Viet Cong, It's comic relief. Ohhhhh!
Nobody's Asian in the movies, Nobody's Asian on TV. If there is a part there for us, It's a ninja, a physician, or a goofy mathematician, or a groupie in the chorus, That's me.
Who do they want before they want an Asian? A Mexican.
Who do they want before they want an Asian? A Black.
Who do they want before they want an Asian? A Persian or a Cajun, or an Indian or an American Indian, Played by a Mexican, Or, if you're lucky, someone Asian Like me.
JW: (But Maurissa! Movies couldn't even be made without Asians. We need them to play the parts we're not willing to.)
MT: (You're right, Jed!)
Without the Asians in the movies Without the Asians on TV Who'd play the goofy mathematician? The computer technician? A wise old healer from Japan? A short but wealthy businessman? Sell Korean groceries? Do your laundry "Thank you, prease" We're the victims of a crime! We'll be loving you long time! If your movie is a bore, Just watch the groupie in the chorus, That's me.
I guess my parents will be proud of me, after all!
JW: What does your father do again?
MT: Oh, he's a nerdy, funny scientist.
JW: Isn't your dad a transpo guy?
MT: Oh, like an Asian could do that. I'm gonna go in the corner and play my violin, and - math!
