Celebrity Challenge 4: Submitted by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner

Just in time for the opening of their new Broadway musical, First Date, the songwriting duo, Zachary and Weiner, have issued the following songwriting challenge:
After Trevor and Sara meet in a bar and have an ensuing night of passion, the two uncomfortably sing a "morning after" duet, having just realized that they are… related.
Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner's new musical, First Date, is currently in previews at the Longacre Theater on Broadway where it will open on August 8.  They are also working on a musical version of the film, Secondhand Lions, scheduled to open at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theater in September.

    1. Myles,

      Here's a music attempt I posted on YouTube in response to that. I used both lyric lines, but you could use either (or both) if this appeals to you.

    2. TREVOR
      The first thing I do, after one night stands
      Is check for my wallet and their wedding bands.

      SARA
      But of things to rue, there's something much worse
      Than finding his vomit inside of your purse.

      TREVOR
      Through the effects of the liquor selection
      I found out why we felt a connection.

      SARA
      Over idle chat, you saw on my wall

      TREVOR
      Family portraits that I, too, recall

      SARA
      From those weddings at, the ancestral manse

      TREVOR
      I would leave- but I can't find my pants.


      SARA
      The trivia quiz, we teamed up to win
      A gateway into this particular sin

      TREVOR
      And irony is, admiring your jeans
      While bantering over what 'narcism' means

      SARA
      We don't need six degrees or Kevin Bacon
      Cause our shared family tree has been shaken

      TREVOR
      So let's never speak, of our awkward tryst

      SARA
      Add my cell to your "do not call" list.

      TREVOR
      And this time next week, we'll displace our shame

      SARA
      But I'll make sure to check his last name.

      BOTH
      Meeting strangers in pubs
      Before hookups in clubs
      At least bother to ask their last name.
