Actually, it is not a question of the line losing its bite. It becomes too snarky when it isn’t delivered as a direct rebuttal to Rosalia’s opening line. Once it was decided to remove Rosalia’s verse, it was wisely decided to make Anita’s opening line more playful.

Didn’t Sondheim say that the original lyrics to AMERICA made Anita seem like a smart-ass?
