Best Friend

(Kate, a dagger-tongued beauty and
Queenie’s best friend enters the party
With Black, her handsome escort)

Queenie
Lesson number three. Keep your friends
Close, but your enemies even closer.

Nadine
Which is Kate’

Queenie
She’s a little bit pal

Kate
She’s a little bit foe

Queenie
She’s a little bit slick

Kate
she’s a little bit slow

Queenie
Who’s gorgeous to the cuticle’

Kate
Who’s looks ain’t pharmaceutical’

Queenie
I’m all this and she’s all that

Kate
She’s all dog and I’m all cat

Both
But underneath the fur and fat
You’re lookin’ at
my best friend

Kate
She’s a little bit stale

Queenie
She’s a little bit fresh

Kate
She’s a lotta bit ice

Queenie
She’s a lotta bit flesh.

Kate
I always do the mothering-

Queenie
But some would call it smothering-
Different as the day and night-

Kate
Opposite as wrong and right-

Both
Together we make dynamite
Hold on tight
For my best friend!

Kate
So you’re still shakin’ it down in the
Bowry. Ain’t they retired you yet’

Queenie
Too bad that all of that money you earn
You gotta spend on the love you can’t
Get.


Kate
What’ll be tonight’s special’ Let me guess:
‘Queenie In Distress’ again’

Queenie
Kate the icebox is jealous of me
and my nat’ral success with men

Kate
I calls it like I sees it-

Queenie
(She never tells the truth)

Kate
She’s a little bit dumb-

Queenie
She’s a little bit cold-

Kate
She’s a little soft-

Queenie
She’s a little hard-

Both
She’s a lotta luv-luvva-luvva-love ‘
She’s good for a bail,
I’m great for a laugh.
She’s my evil twin.
I’m her better half.

Queenie
She cuts through all the gin and jive-

Kate
She always makes me feel alive-

Both
Stickin’ through the blood and gore-
Call it love or civil war-
What we got is something more-
Thank heaven and hell for
My best friend!
