Nice one but it took me long to figure out the words.Still, I did my best:)
Here are the words-
Thank you @Dan for another nice song:)
"By the way 'tried out' means 'tested', right? They launched the show to test it."
Yes. I'm referring to the tradition of "out-of-town tryouts." It was strong in the 1950s. It exists but is fading nowadays.
In the United States, New York is the theater capital of the country, and the theater district is clustered around the street named Broadway. So "Broadway" means "theater," like "Hollywood" means movies.
Because Broadway is the big, prestigious center, it is expensive to produce a play or musical there.
Before opening on Broadway, producers would first "try out" (test) the show in some city that had a strong theater tradition and wasn't too far away from New York. Common cities for tryouts were Philadelphia, New Haven, and Boston.
People living in these cities enjoyed being able to see shows before people in New York did. However, the shows weren't as good, because they were in the process of being developed. During the tryouts, the producers would see what worked and what didn't. They would rewrite parts of the show, sometimes big parts. The story might be changed. In a musical, they would add and take out songs. The actors would still be improving their performance (and might not be working quite as hard, because, after all, it wasn't Broadway). The show that opened on Broadway might be different and better than the show in the tryout city.
Thank you Dan for your clear explanation! To try out - the verb (to test) / tryouts - the noun (show itself but not the final one). I see now!
I could not add anything else in the previous message (a limit of characters, it said). I have not listened to the song so I have tried to guess the words with the clues you gave us and the under bars. I do not think all of them are correct but who knows? Thanks for this amusing activities Dan! :)

Edited: I have checked the song and I got most of them wrongly but they made sense to me! :) Thank you!
