DONNY:
So, you know any other guys who served, but young, good looking like us?

JIMMY:
It's radio, what does it matter?

DONNY:
If we win, we get to be in the movies.
You know any?

JIMMY:
I know a guy
He kicks it on bass
His regular gig is at Oliver's place
He's better than anyone when he's not high

DONNY:
Jesus.

JIMMY:
He's army too.

DONNY:
I'll take my chances.

JIMMY:
Then yep, I can tell ya
That I know a guy
Meet me at the Rio Lounge tomorrow night.

DONNY:
Woah, he plays at the Rio?

JIMMY:
No, he drinks there.

WOMAN:
We're ready to open, Jimmy!

JIMMY:
Let em all in.

DAVY:
Jimmy, you skinny son of a bitch! What wind blew you hither?

JIMMY:
This is Donny Novitski. Donny, meet Davy Zlatic.
Donny here made it through Solomon Islands

DAVY:
I'll tickle your catastrophe, I liberated Dachau.

DONNY:
Jeez.

DAVY:
But Jimmy told me about your band idea!

DONNY:
I hope that means you're in?

JIMMY:
Yeah, that means he's in.

DONNY:
Great! Now all we need are a couple horns, and a monster on drums.

DAVY:
I know a guy
His trumpet is hot
A barrel of laughs, though this bastard is not
But maybe we break him between you and I

DONNY:
Let's do it.

DAVY:
Then get your jokes ready
Cause I know a guy

DAVY:
Hey Nick, this is the guy who thinks we belong in a band together

NICK:
Who else is on trumpet? I'm not playing second

DONNY:
Just you. We need a trombone though.

DAVY:
And a drummer.

DONNY:
Has to have served.

NICK:
I know a guy
A former Marine
He blows like a champ and his licks are obscene
A bug up his ass, but I'd say worth a try
Cause if you want perfect,
then I know a guy

ENSEMBLE:
Bah bah!

DONNY:
Bobby Soxers swooned at my charms
Backed up by my brothers in arms
Is it happening?
I think it's really happening!
I hear it in
We're ready to open
Let em all in
I'm not playing second
Yeah, that means he's in

DONNY AND ENSEMBLE:
Finally home and finally safe!
And finally free

ANNOUNCER:
Five minutes to places, everyone
Five minutes!

ENSEMBLE:
Time to open up!
Time to open up the doors!
Open up, we got a show

WAYNE:
I know a guy
He's kind of a mess
He made it back home in one piece or less
A genius on drums though on brain matter, shy
But man, you want rhythm,
then I know a guy

DONNY:
It's all happening
It's all happening
It's all happening

ENSEMBLE:
Then yep, I can tell ya
That I know a guy
