Due to something we poets/songwriters like to call "rhyme scheme", Raoul is not pronounced in the conventional fashion (e.g. "ROWL"), but like this: "RA-OOOL" (except in lines 20-21).

I'm starting to drool…

And it's not 'cuz of Raoul…

Let me tell you 'bout his ugliness!

('Cuz he's got lots of ugliness!)

Oh, yeah, he's so uncool…

Because his name is "Raoul"!

And he can't even duel…

Because he's Raoul!

And his face is so CRUEL on my eyes!

You can see he's such a fool… OW! MY EYES!

He's got that "foppy" little look…

I can't believe he's in the musical, let alone the book…

And you're all probably laughin' at my song…

But it'd be a lie to say I'm wrong!

I mean, just look at that Raoul…

He's so ugly and uncool!

We all know that PHANTOM is the one!

(He's the one that's got the noose-full of fun!)

And isn't he the one that Daae kissed?!

Oops! Looks like Raoul missed…

Even though you say, "Raoul was kissed first!"

His lips put Daae in a HEARSE!!

She should have left 'im there to die…

But she chose the fop and made Phantom cry…

Daae and Raoul…

Oh, man, they're such FOOLS!
