Miss Saigon - The Heat is On in Saigon Lyrics

Song from Miss Saigon - 2014 West End Revival
Miss Saigon the Musical
- The Heat is On in Saigon Lyrics

AMERICANS
The heat is on in Saigon
The girls are ready to screw
One of these slits here will be Miss Saigon
And since we're stuck here in hell, what's a soldier to do
The stink is making me choke
Turns out this war is a joke
Turns out the joke is on you

ENGINEER
Ah, Monsieur Chris! Monsieur John!
You've come to win Miss Saigon

JOHN
I gotta get my friend laid as a last souvenir

CHRIS
I love you, pal, but your bullshit
I've had up to here

ENGINEER, CHRIS AND JOHN
The heat is on in Saigon

JOHN
But 'til they tell us we're gone
I'm gonna buy you a girl

CHRIS
You can buy me a beer

ENGINEER
It's showtime! (spoken) From Hai Phong to the Mekong Delta, may I present the most beautiful girls in Saigon, Mimi...

MIMI
See my bikini, it's just the right size

YVETTE
Don't you enjoy how it rides up my thighs?

DOMINIQUE
Look from behind, it'll knock out your eyes

YVONNE
I'll show you: my special trophy of war

FIFI
For a Marine, I'll show more

AMERICANS
You won't get up off the floor
The heat is on in Saigon
Don't tell me I'm reassigned, all that chickenshit sucks
Tonight I'm out of my mind, not to mention ten bucks

GIGI
If I'm your pin-up, I'll melt all your brass
Stuck on your ball, with a pin in my ass
If you get me, you will travel first class
I'll show you, we will make magic, cheri

ENGINEER
You buy more tickets from me
The winner gets her for free

CHRIS
The meat is cheap in Saigon
I used to love getting stoned, waking up with some whore
I don't know why I went dead, it's not fun anymore

KIM
I'm seventeen, and I'm new here today
The village I come from seems so far away
All of these girls know much more what to say
But I know
I'm so much more than you see
A million dreams are in me

CHRIS
Good Jesus, John, who is she?

AMERICANS (AND CROWD)
The Cong is tight'ning the noose
Is it a week or a day or an hour that we got?
Tonight could be our last shot got to put it to use
I got a fever babe and you're gonna catch it
I got an itch and baby you're gonna scratch it

ALL MEN
Mimi, Gigi, Yvette or Yvonne
Gonna buy me a beer, here's to you Miss Saigon

ENGINEER
Yvonne, Yvette, Fifi, Mimi, Kim, Gigi!

ENGINEER
Attention, s'il vous plait!
By popular demand
Miss Gigi Van Tranh
Is elected Miss Saigon!

AMERICANS
The heat is on in Saigon
How we get used to the smell
So let's get wasted, get high and get laid
A good-bye party in hell

ENGINEER
And now who wins my little pussycat?
Number 66!
