Track Name: Maybe This Time
Maybe this time, I'll be lucky
Maybe this time, he'll stay
Maybe this time
For the first time
Love won't hurry away

He will hold me fast
I'll be home at last
Not a loser anymore
Like the last time
And the time before

Everybody loves a winner
So nobody loved me;
'Lady Peaceful,' 'Lady Happy,'
That's what I long to be
All the odds are in my favor
Something's bound to begin
It's got to happen, happen sometime
Maybe this time I'll win
Track Name: Nowadays
It's good
Isn't it grand? Isn't it great?
Isn't it swell? Isn't it fun?
Isn't it? Nowadays

There's men
Everywhere jazz, everywhere booze
Everywhere life, everywhere joy
Everywhere, nowadays

You can like the life you're livin'
You can live the life you like
You can even marry Harry
But mess around with Ike
And that's good

Isn't it grand? Isn't it great?
Isn't it swell? Isn't it fun?

Ladies and gentlemen, the Vickers theater
Chicago's finest finest home of family entertainment
Is proud to announce a first
The first time, anywhere there has been an act of this nature
Not only one little lady but two!
You've read about them in the papers
And now here they are a double header!
Chicago's own killer, drillers those two scintillating sinners
Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly

You can like the life you're livin'
You can live the life you like
You can even marry Harry
But mess around with Ike
And that's good

Isn't it grand? Isn't it great?
Isn't it swell? Isn't it fun?
Isn't it?

But nothing stays in fifty years or so
It's gonna change, you know
But oh, it's heaven
Nowadays
Track Name: Something's Coming
Could be!
Who knows?
There's something due any day;
I will know right away,
Soon as it shows.
It may come cannonballing down through the sky,
Gleam in its eye,
Bright as a rose!

Who knows?
It's only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Under a tree.
I got a feeling there's a miracle due,
Gonna come true,
Coming to me!

Could it be? Yes, it could.
Something's coming, something good,
If I can wait!
Something's coming, I don't know what it is,
But it is
Gonna be great!

With a click, with a shock,
Phone'll jingle, door'll knock,
Open the latch!
Something's coming, don't know when, but it's soon;
Catch the moon,
One-handed catch!

Around the corner,
Or whistling down the river,
Come on, deliver
To me!
Will it be? Yes, it will.
Maybe just by holding still,
It'll be there!

Come on, something, come on in, don't be shy,
Meet a guy,
Pull up a chair!
The air is humming,
And something great is coming!
Who knows?
It's only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Maybe tonight . . .
Track Name: I Move On
[VELMA]
While truckin' down the road of life, although all hope seems gone,
I just move on.

[ROXIE]
When I can't find a single star to hang my wish upon, I just move on,
I move on.

[VELMA]
I run so fast, a shotgun blast can hurt me not one bit.

[ROXIE]
I'm on my toes cause heaven knows a moving target's hard to hit.

[VELMA & ROXIE]
So as we play in life's ballet, we're not the dying swans, we just move on,
we move on.

[ROXIE]
Just when it seems we're out of dreams, and things have got us down.

[VELMA]
We don't despair, we don't go there, we hang our bonnets out of town.

[VELMA & ROXIE]
So there's no doubt we're well cut out to run life's marathon, we just move on,
we just move on.

So fleet of foot, we can't stay put, we just move on.
Yes, we move on!
Track Name: 20th Century Fox Mambo
At Paramount it's "Oh la la"
The Warner Bros. "Cha cha cha"
And L.B. Mayer loves his schmaltz
So M.G.M. made the great waltz

But the 20th Century Foxtrot
It's precious - but precious, it's not hot
To make the big boys hire me
Please make that rhythm fiery

Come on boys and girls - make me over

In this factory where dreams can true
Are you ready to make someone new
You're the team that must teach me to do
The 20th Century Fox Mambo

Done the homework and I'll pass the test
I'll do whatever my teachers suggest
I can do it clothed or undressed
The 20th Century Fox Mambo

Make it up, shake it up
Let the fantasies begin
Here's the dope
To get cast, change the past
Make the light just right for Cin-emascope

Take a gamble cuz it's safe to bet
Mr. Zanick ain't seen nothin' yet
When we're finished he'll never forget
This 20th Century Fox

(For fame - play the game - change your name -to the 20th Century Fox)

Make it up - shake it up
Make me feel like the main attraction
Change the clothes, fix the nose
And then 5,6,7,8
Action! (Action!)

Now I'm blonde but I ain't so dumb (No)
Hollywood will be under my thumb (Yes)
I'll change partners until I become

The 20th Century Fox
Mambo!
Track Name: Love You I Do
Never met a man
Quite like you
Doing all you can
Making my dreams come true

You're strong and you're smart
You've taken my heart
And I'll give you the rest of me too

You're the perfect man for me
I love you I do

Mm I love ya

Never have I felt
Quite like this
Good about myself
From my very first kiss
I'm here when you call
You've got it all
And confidence like I never knew

You're the perfect man for me
I love you I do

You've got the charm
You simply disarm me every time
As long as you drive
I'm along for the ride
Your way
I said it before
There won't be a door
That's closed to us
I'm putting all my trust in you
Cause you, you'll always be true, Oh

I never could have known
This would be,
Oh you and you alone, yeah
Are all for me
I know you're the best
You've passed every test
It's almost too good to be true

You're the perfect man for me
I love you I do

You're the perfect man for me
I love you I do
