Lyrics:


[reporters]
Whered you come from?

[billy (as roxie)]
Mississippi

[reporters]
And your parents?

[billy (as roxie)]
Very wealthy.

[reporters]
Where are they now?

[billy (as roxie)]
Six feet under.

[billy]
But she was granted one more start

[billy (as roxie)]
The convent of the sacred heart!

[reporters]
Whend you get here?

[billy (as roxie)]
1920

[reporters]
How old were you?

[billy (as roxie)]
Dont remember

[reporters]
Then what happened?

[billy (as roxie)]
I met amos
And he stole my heart away
Convinced me to elope one day

[mary sunshine (spoken)]
A convent girl! a run-away marriage!
Oh, its too terrible. you poor, poor dear.

[reporters]
Whos fred casely?

[billy (as roxie)]
My ex-boyfriend.

[reporters]
Whyd you shoot him?

[billy (as roxie)]
I was leavin.

[reporters]
Was her angry?

[billy (as roxie)]
Like a madman
Still I said, fred, move along.

[billy]
She knew that she was doin wrong.

[reporters]
Then describe it.

[billy (as roxie)]
He came toward me.

[reporters]
With a pistol?

[billy (as roxie)]
From my bureau.

[reporters]
Did you fight him?

[billy (as roxie)]
Like a tiger.

[billy]
He had strength and she had none.

[billy (as roxie)]
And yet we both reached for the gun
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes we both
Oh yes we both
Oh yes, we both reached for
The gun, the gun, the gun, the gun
Oh yes, we both reached for the gun
For the gun.

[billy and reporters]
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes they both
Oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both reached for
The gun, the gun, the gun, the gun,
Oh yes, they both reached for the gun
For the gun.

[billy]
Understandable. understandable
Yes, its perfectly understandable
Comprehensible. comprehensible
Not a bit reprehensible
Its so defensible!

[reporters]
Howre you feeling?

[billy (as roxie)]
Very frightened

[reporters]
Are you sorry?

[roxie]
Are you kidding?

[reporters]
Whats youre statement?

[billy (as roxie)]
All Id say is
Though my choo-choo jumped the track
Id give my life to bring him back

[reporters]
And?

[billy (as roxie)]
Stay away from

[reporters]
What?

[billy (as roxie)]
Jazz and liquor

[reporters]
And?

[billy (as roxie)]
And the men who

[reporters]
What?

[billy (as roxie)]
Play for fun

[reporters]
And what?

[billy (as roxie)]
Thats the thougt that

[reporters]
Yeah

[billy (as roxie)]
Came upon me

[reporters]
When?

[billy (as roxie)]
When we both reached for the gun!

[mary sunshine]
Understandable, understandable

[billy and mary sunshine]
Yes, its perfectly understandable
Comprehensible, comprehensible
Not a bit reprehensible
Its so defensible!

[billy (spoken)]
Let me
Hear it!

[reporters]
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both reached for
The gun, the gun, the gun,
The gun
Oh yes, they both reached
For the gun

[billy (spoken)]
A little louder!

[reporters]
For the gun.
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both reached
For the gun, the gun,

[billy (spoken)]
Now you got it!

[reporters]
The gun,the gun
Oh yes. they both reached
For the gun
For the gun.

[billy and reporters]
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both reached for
The gun, the gun, the gun,the gun
Oh yes, they both reached for the gun.

Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both
Oh yes, reached for
The gun, the gun, the gun,the gun
The gun, the gun, the gun,the gun
The gun, the gun, the gun,the gun
The gun, the gun, the gun,the gun.

[billy]
Both reached for the...gun

[reporters]
The gun, the gun, the gun,the gun
The gun, the gun, the gun,the gun
The gun, the gun, the gun,the gun
The gun, the gun, the gun,the gun
Both reached for the gun.
