*Solo version lyrics for "The Internet Is For Porn":
I'm glad we have this new technology - For porn!
Which gives us untold opportunity - For porn!
There's always some new site,
I browse all day and night,
It's like I'm surfing at the speed of light - For porn!

The Internet is for porn,
The Internet is for porn,
Why you think the net was born? Porn, porn, porn!
The Internet is for porn,
The Internet is for porn,
Me up all night honking me horn to Porn, porn, porn!

Winner of the TONY "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh,part felt, and packed with heart.

The laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.

Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere. Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children's show; a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned.

Featuring songs "Purpose", "Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist", "The Internet is for Porn" and "There’s a Fine Fine Line".
