Roxie - Lyrics

The name on everybody's lips
Is gonna be roxie
The lady rakin' in the chips
Is gonna be roxie
I'm gonna be a celebrity
That means somebody eveyone knows
They're gonna recognize my eyes
My hair, my teeth, my boobs, my nose
From just some dumb mechanic's wife
I'm gonna be roxie
Who says that murders not an art?
And who in case she doesn't hang
Can say she started with a bang?
Foxy roxie hart!

You wanna know something? I always wanted to be in
Vaudeville. and now that I'm a celebrity, i'm
Gonna have me a swell act, too. yeah, I'll get a boy
To work with- someone who can lift me up, show me off-
Oh hell, I'll get two boys. it'll frame me better.
Think "big", roxie, think "big."
I'm gonna get a whole bunch of boys.
The name on everybody's lips
Is gonna be

Roxie

The lady rakin' in the chips is gonna be

Roxie. she's gonna be a celebrity

That means somebody everyone knows

They're gonna recognize her eyes
Her hair. her teeth...

...my boobs, my nose
From just some dumb mechanic's wife
I'm gonna be
Sing it!

Roxie

Who says that murder's not an art?

And who in case she doesn't hang

Can say she started

With a bang?

Foxy roxie hart

They're gonna wait outside in line
To get to see roxie

Think of those autographs I'll sign
"good luck to you, roxie"
And I'll appear in lavaliere
That goes all the way down to my waist

Here a ring, there a ring
Everywhere a ring a ling

But always in the best of taste
Oooh I'm a star.

And the audience loves her.

And I love the audience. and the audience loves me
For loving them. and I love them for lving me. and
We jus tlove each other. that's because none of us
Got any love in our childhood.

That's right.

And that's show biz, kid.

Oh yeah.
She's giving up here humdrum life

I'm gonna be

Roxie.
She made a scandal and a start.

And sophie tucker will shit, I know
To see her name get billed below

Foxy roxie hart!

Chuh, chuh, chuh, etc...

Those are my boys.
