ANN: Relax.(pause) It must be our time of the month.
NANCI: Oh Rocco's lab called last night and they made another clone.
OTHERS: Great! Another me!
NANCI: Another You? What about another me?
ANN: Another me....Us....whatever.
Joely: That's all there is......US!
Isn't it weird? I'm now a pair
I can be standing right here and I'm over there
We are a clone
You are a bitch, just like myself
Just got a call from the lab there's one more off the shelf
They made one more clone, never alone!
I like myself Am I a queer
I thought I'd throw a surprise party for me this year
We wear the same clothes, our men we can share
But I can't hide my gifts
'cause I'll find them there
Have the same face
Have the same hair
We walk down the street side by side - And everyone stares
I am my own clone
And I really snore
I'm at my front door
When will it stop Can't get any sleep
Both of us up half the night counting Dolly the sheep
Calling myself on the phone to hear what I have to say
Asking myself "How was my day?"
Isn't it weird - I'm my own mirror
I thought that I'd want what I want - Am I still here?
And where is my clone? Have you seen my clone?
Don't bother, I'm here!
