Again the central idea just popped into my head. In fact, while I was looking up whe tyrics of the previous one. It runs from just before L&L to about two thirds through M!M

Perdita
(TTO Babushka)

She wanted to change who she was,
She new exactly what to do,
A pseudonymic new her,
She couldn't have made a worse move.

She joined Ms Tockley's coven,
And went Gothic in a strange black dress,
Not like Agnes,
But how she'd be without the weight,
And how she'd be if the rules just flew by,
And how she'd be if she was beautiful.
She called herself now,

Always, Perdita, Perdita, Perdita-a-a,
Always, Perdita, Perdita, Perdita-a-a,

The coven went no further,
So to Morpork Agnes did go.
Wanted to see if she,
Could be the star of the show.

And when she reached the opera,
She got the feeling of regret once more.
Background of scenes,
Her talent going to Christine.
'Cos she's got a good personality,
Just 'cos she's nice and willing to help out,
Just 'cos she's nice but isn't beautiful,
She said "Enough! I'm,

Always, Perdita, Perdita, Perdita-a-a,
Always, Perdita, Perdita, Perdita-a-a,
Always, Perdita, Perdita, Perdita-a-a,
Perdita, Perdita, Perdita-a-a,
Perdita, Perdita, Perdita-a-a,
