NICELY-NICELY: What's playing at the Roxy? I'll tell you what's playing at the Roxy 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 you what's in the Daily News A 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-NICELY: What's happenin' all over? I'll tell you what's happenin' all over Guy sittin' home by a television set who once used to be somethin' of a rover That's what's happenin' all over! BOTH: Love is the thing that has licked 'em And it looks like Nathan's just another victim NICELY-NICELY: Yes, sir, when you see a guy reach for stars in the sky You can bet that he's doing it for some doll BENNY: When you spot a John waiting out in the rain Chances are he's insane as only a John can be for a Jane NICELY-NICELY: When you meet a gent payin' all kinds of rent For a flat that could flatten the Taj Mahal BOTH: Call it sad, call it funny, but it's better than even money That the guy's only doing it for some doll BENNY: When you see a Joe savin' half of his dough, You can bet they'll be mink in' it for some doll NICELY-NICELY: 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 BENNY: When you meet a mug lately out of the jug And he's still liftin' platinum fol-de-rol BOTH: Call it hell, call it heaven, it's a probable twelve to seven That the guy's only doing it for some doll BENNY: When you see a sport and his cash has run short Make a bet that he's bankin' it with some doll NICELY-NICELY: When a guy wears tails with the front gleamin' white Who the hell do you think he's ticklin' pink on Saturday night? BENNY: When a lazy slob takes a good steady job And he smells from Vitalis and Barbasol BOTH Call it dumb, call it clever, ah, but you can give 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!
