Guys and Dolls

Nathan:
What's playing at the Roxy?
I'll tell you what's playing at the Roxy
It's a picture about a Minnesota man so in love with a Mississippi girl
That he sacrifices everything and moves all the way to Biloxi
That's what's playing at the Roxy

Benny:
What's in the daily news?
I'll tell what's in the daily news
Story about a guy who bought his wife a small ruby
With what otherwise would have been his union dues
That's what's in the daily news

Nicely: What's happening all over?
I'll tell you what's happening all over
Guy sitting home by a television set who used to be something of a rover
That's what's happening all over

All: Love is the thing that has licked them!
Nathan: And it looks like I'm just another victim

Yes, sir
When you see a guy
Reach for stars in the sky
You can bet that he's doing it for some doll

When you spot a john waiting out in the rain
Chances are he's insane
As only a john can be for a jane

When you meet a gent
Paying all kinds of rent
For a flat that could flatten the Taj Mahal

Call it sad, call it funny
But it's better than even money
That the guy's only doing it for some doll

When you see a Joe
Saving half of his dough
You can bet there'll be mink in it for some doll

When a bum buys wine like a bum can't afford
It's a cinch that the bum
Is under the thumb
Of some little broad

When you meet a mug
Lately out of the jug
And he's still lifting platinum folderol

Call its hell, call it heaven
It's a probable twelve to seven
That the guy's only doing it for some doll.

When you see a sport
And his cash has run short,
You can bet he's been blowing it on some doll.

When a guy wears tails with the front gleaming white
Who the heck do you think
He's tickling pink
On Saturday night?

When the lazy slob
Gets a good steady job
And he smells from Vitalis and Barbasol

Call it dumb, call it clever
Ah, but you can get odds forever
That the guy's only doing it for some doll
Some doll, some doll
The guy's only doing it for some doll
