RIFF The Jets are gonna have their day Tonight. BERNARDO The Sharks are gonna have their way Tonight. RIFF The Puerto Ricans grumble: "Fair fight." But if they start a rumble, We'll rumble 'em right. BERNARDO We're gonna hand 'em a surprise Tonight. RIFF AND JETS We're gonna cut 'em down to size Tonight. BERNARDO AND SHARKS We said, "O.K., no rumpus, No tricks." But just in case they jump us, We're ready to mix Tonight. ALL We're gonna rock it tonight, We're gonna jazz it up and have us a ball! They're gonna get it tonight; The more they turn it on the harder they'll fall! RIFF AND JETS Well, they began it! BERNARDO AND SHARKS Well, they began it! ALL And we're the ones to stop 'em once and for all, Tonight! ANITA Anita's gonna get her kicks Tonight. We'll have our private little mix Tonight. He'll walk in hot and tired, So what? Don't matter if he's tired, As long as he's hot Tonight! TONY Tonight, tonight, Won't be just any night, Tonight there will be no morning star. Tonight, tonight, I'll see my love tonight. And for us, stars will stop where they are. Today The minutes seem like hours, The hours go so slowly, And still the sky is light . . . Oh moon, grow bright, And make this endless day endless night! RIFF I'm counting on you to be there Tonight. When Diesel wins it fair and square Tonight. That Puerto Rican punk'll Go down. And when he's hollered "Uncle" We'll tear up the town! (RIFF, TONY, and MARIA sing simultaneously) RIFF So I can count on you, boy? TONY All right. RIFF We're gonna have us a ball. TONY All right. RIFF Womb to tomb! TONY Sperm to worm! RIFF I'll see you there about eight. TONY Tonight . . . MARIA Tonight, tonight Won't be just any night, Tonight there will be no morning star, (JETS, SHARKS, MARIA, TONY, and ANITA sing simultaneously) SHARKS We're gonna rock it tonight! They're gonna get it tonight, They began it, They began it, The began it. We'll stop 'em once and for all. The Sharks are gonna have their way, The Sharks are gonna have their day, We're gonna rock it tonight. Tonight! JETS We're gonna jazz it tonight! Tonight! They began it, And we're the ones to stop 'em once and for all! The Jets are gonna have their way, The Jets are gonna have their day. We're gonna rock it tonight. Tonight! ANITA Tonight, tonight, Late tonight, We're gonna mix it tonight. Anita's gonna have her day, Anita's gonna have her day, Bernardo's gonna have his way Tonight, tonight, Tonight, this very night, We're gonna rock it tonight! MARIA Tonight, tonight, I'll see my love tonight. And for us, stars will stop where they are. MARIA AND TONY Today the minutes seem like hours. The hours go so slowly, And still the skiy is light. Oh moon, grow bright, And make this endless day endless night, ALL Tonight!
