Bad Guy Blues

Notes:
Written for a proposed but scuttled Disney Cruise Lines show. One segment featured Disney Villains Cruella DeVille, Jafar and Captain Hook all complaining of unfair treatment. Jafar’s song has a “Heartbreak Hotel” flavor.


     JAFAR
Was it too much to ask for—
Just a little lamp?
They stuffed me down inside it, now I’ve got such a cramp!
Feeling mean from my turban
Down to my curly-toed shoes—
Oh, you don’t know ’bout bad times till you’ve had the Bad Guy Blues!

Now if you are a villain
Your life is just a mess,
You never get the girl, you only get bad press!
You never get a vacation
Or get to go on a cruise.
Oh, you don’t know ’bout bad times till you’ve had the Bad Guy Blues!
