Broadway Bounty Hunter the Musical - The Return of Roundtree Lyrics


Performed by: Brad Oscar, Omar Garibay, Ensemble

MAC ROUNDTREE:
Sometimes you find you’re the idol
Of all your peers
Your friends ain’t friends anymore,
They’re just souvenirs
And since you’re on the top of the mountain
They see the money you’re countin’
Then they try to bring you down
New york’s that kinda town

So then you hide in the jungle
For a little while
You run a nasty-ass brothel
You’re versatile
Sippin’ on tequila and lime
Really you’re just bidin’ your time
And when you’re ready then
You try new york again

But sometimes your wife becomes a bounty hunter
And screws up your plan
But since you’re worldly wise, you just improvise
And then you’re back on track
And then you’re winning, man

(spoken)
And you’re riding a motorcycle through the jungle
And the wind’s whipping through your magnificent chest hair
And you’re screaming at the top of your lungs:

I’m back, bitch, I’m back, bitch, I’m back
Listen to me
I’m back, bitch, I’m back, bitch i’m back
This I decree
I’m old white and rich
Bitch, I’m back
And I’m ready to play
And I confess I guess I never really ever went away

(spoken)
But first we’ve got to celebrate our opening night.
I can’t wait to see those kids on my glorious drug.
What it does to them.

I’m  talking ‘bout
Stamina
Vocal range
Turning little theater queens
Into powerhouse machines
I’m talking ‘bout
Stamina

CHARLIE:
I’ll target all up and comers

ENSEMBLE:
So shiny new

CHARLIE:
I’ll hit the college kid circuit

ENSEMBLE:
Yo, nyu

CHARLIE:
Then I’ll gather each little drone
Put ‘em in a show of my own
This’ll all pay off in spades
When I’m dripping in accolades

(spoken)
And in the tony award press room when they say to me:
“Who are you?” “Where’d you come from?”
I’m gonna look ‘em all right in the eyes and yell:

I’m back, bitch, I’m back, bitch, I’m back
Listen to me
I’m mac, bitch, I’m mac, bitch, I’m mac
Mr. Roundtree
I’m old white and rich
Bitch, I’m back
And I’m ready to play
And I confess I guess I never really ever went away

(the city skyline comes into view.)

See the skyline of my city

ENSEMBLE:
See the skyline

MAC ROUNDTREE:
Filthy, gorgeous, gleaming, gritty

ENSEMBLE:
New york city

MAC ROUNDTREE & ENSEMBLE:
New york, are you ready for me?

I’m talkin’ ‘bout
Stamina
I’m talkin’ ‘bout
Vocal range
I’m talkin’ ‘bout
Riffing ‘till you drop
A feeling that’s never gonna stop
I’m talkin’ ‘bout
Stamina

MAC ROUNDTREE, ENSEMBLE:
I’m back, bitch, I’m back, bitch, I’m back
Listen to me
I’m back, bitch, I’m back, bitch I’m back
This I decree

MAC ROUNDTREE:
Been many a year
Now I’m here and I’m planning to stay
Once I got this town
You’re all gong down

ENSEMBLE:
We are never gonna
Never gonna ever go away!

MAC ROUNDTREE:
I’m back!
