The Rhode Island Tango Lyrics

2016 Off-Broadway
God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater the Musical - The Rhode Island Tango Lyrics


FRED:
God, I hate this room
Hate that chair, hate that couch
And-
Ouch!
So the day begins
Knocking up my shins
Here in Pissonit, Rhode Island!

CAROLINE:
God, I hate to shop
Bumble-Bee, Minute Maid
Coupons, two cents off
Stella Doro and Raid
Every day's a bore
Every step's a chore
Here in Pissonit, Rhode Island!

FRED & CAROLINE:
Someday, I'll place an ad

FRED:
White woman wanted

CAROLINE:
White woman seeking

FRED:
For good times with toys

CAROLINE:
Cooperative boys

FRED & CAROLINE:
No perverts or prudes apply
Someday, I'll place an ad

FRED:
White male, well-mannered

CAROLINE:
White female, desperate

FRED:
Would like fun and games

CAROLINE:
Send photos, no names

FRED & CAROLINE:
Expect confidential reply!
I could place an ad in a bad magazine
Fifteen words or less
No I couldn't, I mean
Someone would find out
Whisper, point me out

CAROLINE:
So I'll walk on eggs

FRED:
Bandage my legs

FRED & CAROLINE:
Here in Pissonit, Rhode Island!
Caroline and Fred
Might as well be dead!

MUSHARI:
Found my friends at last
Perfect peas in a pod
I'll get quit a slice
When they're richer than God
Norman's got the deal
Norman's at the wheel
Bound for Pissonit, Rhode Island!

CAROLINE:
God, I hate this town
It isn't right, it isn't fun
It isn't here, it isn't there
It isn't me, it isn't him
It isn't us, it isn't fair
It isn't fair, it isn't fair
It isn't fair, it isn't fair

MURASHI:
I'm almost there
I'm almost there
Almost there
Almost there

FRED:
God
I'm in despair

ALL:
Pissonit, Pissonit, Pissonit, Pissonit, Pissonit Beware!
