I wish I had come up with this sooner... like, shortly after Robert Hazard passed away on August 5, 2008. Not only did he write the catchy "Escalator Of Life", but he also penned Cyndi Lauper's hit "Girls Just Want To Have Fun". So here is a belated tribute.
TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - [Times Like This Theater…] (ND, before a curtain) "And now… We shall perform a short presentation in tribute to a modern philosopher who has recently left us." [curtain opens to reveal four figures on an escalator – Cassie, Matt, Bethany and Rodney, all formally dressed] (CW) "We're riding on the escalator of life. We're shopping in the human mall." (MG) "We're dancing on the escalator of life." (BG) "Won't be happy 'til we have it all… We want it all." (RO) "Escalator of life. Up and down."
