A BRONX TALE the Musical - Giving Back the Money Lyrics

"Giving Back the Money" is a song from A Bronx Tale the Musical performed by Richard H. Blake (Lorenzo) and Hudson Loverro/ Athan Sporek (Young Calogero).

LORENZO:
It's no wonder why the neighborhood treats a boy like him so goddamn good.
Playing craps and shining up his car,
We're going straight to the bar to give back the money!

YOUNG CALOGERO:
What?!

LORENZO:
Shut your mouth, you'll get your mom upset

YOUNG CALOGERO:
But-

ROSINA:
Shush!

LORENZO:
That's right, you ain't seen nothin' yet

YOUNG CALOGERO:
Daddy, daddy, don't say nothing please, I made a promise to Sonny!

LORENZO (spoken):
Let's go. Now.

ROSINA (spoken):
Wait! Let's not make any rash decisions!

LORENZO (spoken):
What?

ROSINA:
Money like that you don't pull from a hat,
I mean twelve-hundred dollars can buy us a lot!

LORENZO:
It's blood money!

ROSINA:
I know! And it's wrong even so,
I mean, who's going to know if we spend it or what?

LORENZO:
It's dirty, it's cheap and the price is too steep!
Take one cent, you're in deep with them like it or not!

(Simultaneously) YOUNG CALOGERO:
Daddy, daddy, don't say nothing, the money's mine!

ROSINA:
Lorenzo! Please! Lorenzo, please!

LORENZO (spoken):
Sonny, I would like to talk to you.
I want you to take this money back, we can't accept it.

SONNY (spoken):
No disrespect to you, Lorenzo, but I didn't give it to you. I gave it to your son.

LORENZO (spoken):
That's right. My son. And I'm warning you, stay away from my son.

SONNY (spoken):
What'd you say?

SONNY:
Hey Lorenzo, you and I should talk. C, I'd like it if you'd take a walk.

LORENZO:
Hey, I'm his father and I'll decide...

LORENZO (spoken):
Calogero, wait outside.

SONNY:
First of all, don't show me disrespect.
Number two, I teach your boy correct. Do the right thing, go to college.

LORENZO:
Please Sonny, he don't need your kind of knowledge.
The clothes, the cars, the money, the girls, all that power, what's it meant?

LORENZO (spoken):
Now he says that Mickey Mantle wouldn't pay my rent?

SONNY (spoken):
What the hell's the matter with you? I treat that kid like he's my son.

LORENZO (spoken):
He's not your son!

SONNY (spoken):
Get him outta here, I wash my hands of you!

YOUNG CALOGERO (spoken):
Where's my money, Daddy? What did Sonny say? Can I have my money?

LORENZO (spoken):
I left it in there.

YOUNG CALOGERO (spoken):
What?! How could you do that?! I worked for it, it was my money!

LORENZO (spoken):
It's dirty money!

YOUNG CALOGERO (spoken):
I want my money!

LORENZO (spoken):
Stop it!

YOUNG CALOGERO (spoken):
I want my money! Gimme my money!

LORENZO (spoken):
No!

YOUNG CALOGERO (spoken):
Daddy... why did you hit me? Why?
Sonny's right, he's right! The working man is a sucker! He's a sucker!

LORENZO (spoken):
Sonny's wrong!

YOUNG CALOGERO (spoken):
I don't understand, Dad.

LORENZO (spoken):
You will when you're older. I'm sorry I hit you. Just stay away from him, okay?

YOUNG CALOGERO (spoken):
Okay.
