[LIZ (Spoken)] You know how people have these little habits That get you down. Like Bernie. Bernie like to chew gum. No, not chew. POP. So I came home this one day And I am really irritated, and I'm looking for a bit of sympathy and there's Bernie layin' on the couch, drinkin' a beer and chewin'. No, not chewin'. Poppin'. So, I said to him, I said, "you pop that gum one more time..." and he did. So I took the shotgun off the wall and I fired two warning shots...  ...into his head.

[GIRLS] He had it coming He had it coming He only had himself to blame

If you'd have been there If you'd have heard it I betcha you would Have done the same!

[ANNIE (Spoken)] I met Ezekiel Young from Salt Lake city about two years ago and he told me he was single and we hit it off right away. So, we started living together. He'd go to work, he'd come home, I'd fix him a drink, We'd have dinner. And then I found out, "Single" he told me? Single, my ass. Not only was he married ...oh, no, he had six wives. One of those Mormons, you know. So that night, when he came home, I fixed him his drink as usual. You know, some guys just can't hold their arsenic.

[LIZ,ANNIE,JUNE,MONA] Hah! He had it coming


He had it coming


He took a flower


In its prime


And then he used it


And he abused it


It was a murder


But not a crime!

[VELMA AND HUNYAK] Pop

six,

squish,

uh-uh


Cicero, Lipschitz

[JUNE (Spoken)] Now, I'm standing in the kitchen carvin' up the chicken for dinner, minding my own business, and in storms my husband Wilbur, in a jealous rage. "You been screwin' the milkman," he says. He was crazy and he kept screamin', "you been screwin the milkman." And then he ran into my knife. He ran into my knife ten times.."

[ALL] If you'd have been there If you'd have seen it I betcha you would have done the same!

[HUNYAK (Spoken)] Mit keresek, йn itt? Azt mondjбk, hogy a hнres lakem lefogta a fйrjemet йn meg  lecsaptam a fejйt. De nem igaz, йn бrtatlan  vagyok. Nem tudom miйrt mondja  Uncle Sam, hogy йn tettem. Probбltam a rendхrsйgen megmagyarбzni de nem йrtettйk meg...

[JUNE (Spoken)] Yeah, but did you do it?

[HUNYAK] UH UH, not guilty!

[VELMA] My sister, Veronica and I had this double act and my husband, Charlie, traveled around with us. Now, for the last number in our act, we did 20 acrobatic tricks one two three four,five...splits, spread eagles, back flips,flip flops, one right after the other. Well, this one night we were in the hotel Cicero, the three of us,  boozin' and havin' a few laughs when we run out of ice. So I went out to get some. I come back, open the door and there's Veronica and Charlie doing Number Seventeen- the spread eagle.

Well, I was in such a state of shock,  I completely blacked out.I can't remember a thing.  It wasn't until later,  when I was washing the blood off my hands  I even knew they were dead.

They had it coming


They had it coming


They had it coming all along


I didn't do it


But if I'd done it


How could you tell me that I was wrong?

[VELMA] They had it coming [GIRLS] They had it coming


[VELMA] They had it coming [GIRLS] They had it coming


[VELMA] They had it coming  [GIRLS] They took a flower


[VELMA] All along [GIRLS] In its prime


[VELMA] I didn't do it  [GIRLS] And then they used it


[VELMA] But if I'd done it [GIRLS] And they abused it


[VELMA] How could you tell me  [GIRLS] It was a murder


[VELMA] That I was wrong? [GIRLS] But not a crime!

[MONA] I loved Alvin Lipschitz more than I can possibly say. He was a real artistic guy... sensitive... a painter. But  He was always trying to find himself. He'd go out every night looking for himself and on the way he found Ruth, Gladys, Rosemary and Irving. I guess you can say we broke up because of artistic differences. He saw himself as alive and I saw him dead.

[ALL] The dirty bum, bum, bum, bum, bum The dirty bum, bum, bum, bum, bum

[LIZ,ANNIE,MONA] They had it comin'  [VELMA,JUNE,HUNYAK] They had it comin' [LIZ,ANNIE,MONA] They had it comin' [VELMA,JUNE,HUNYAK] They had it comin' [LIZ,ANNIE,MONA] They had it comin' [VELMA,JUNE,HUNYAK] They had it comin' [LIZ,ANNIE,MONA] All along [VELMA,JUNE,HUNYAK] All along 'Cause if they used us 'Cause if they used us And they abused us  And they abused us [LIZ,ANNIE,MONA] How could you tell us  [VELMA,JUNE,HUNYAK] How could you tell us That we were wrong? That we were wrong?

He had it coming He had it coming He only had Himself To blame. If you'd have been there If you'd have seen it I betcha You would Have done The same!
