In chorus you canít wear any perfume
No strong deodorants, no body spray
Youíve got to stand straight, got to stand close
No way to get away.

In chorus the men feel each others chests
As cavities truly in tune
The note and the blend, the resonance
The acoustics of the whole room.

In chorus the women need a clear nose
The head notes need room to grow
And for the whole piece, the whole requiem
No sneeze or cough should explode.

A chorus smells honestly of a closet
Where tuxedos and long gowns have hung
It starts to perspire from the closeness
The breath stretches against cumberbuns.

Eyes on the director, shape the notes
Feel the body sounding as one
The well tuned intervals, syncopations
Rise sweeter than the scent of perfume.
