Boca Raton lyrics

Boca Raton

[[Bathing Beauties]]
Boca Raton,
Come down to Boca Raton,
Where every sky's the bluest you've seen,
Where all year long the grass remains green,
Where every beach is clean and pristine.

Buy a lot
Or even two.
Have we got
A lot for you!

Boca Raton,
Come down to Boca Raton,
Where every vista sparkles and gleams,
Soon a city to feed your dreams!

[[Yacht Club Boys]]
The city beautiful,
A work of art in itself,
The city beautiful,
Could be displayed on a shelf.
A picture-perfect place,
A place of grace and space,
A world of seaside sports
And leafy malls,
A world of jai alai courts
And concert halls,
A world of boating, hot springs,
Golf links, tennis--
Newport, Saratoga, Venice...

[[Men]]
Boca Raton--

[[Women]]
You'll covet--

[[Men]]
Boca Raton!

[[Women]]
You'll love it!

[[All]]
Best, though, not to delay!

[[Women]]
Come and see
The new frontier!

[[Men]]
Come and be
a pioneer!

[[Men and Women]]
You'll agree,
Tomorrow's here
Today
In Boca Raton!

[[Chorus]]
Take a boat or a bus,
Come by road or by river,
Throw your bags in a flivver
Or take the sunshine express
To your new address:

Boca Raton...Boca Raton...
Come down to Boca Raton...

[[Wilson]]
My friends, when our forefathers first set
foot on these shores, they were given a great
gift. A New World, pristine and unspoiled, where
anything was possible.

A land of limitless frontiers. A home for enterprising pioneers.

And we're still heading west,
Crossing mountains and plains,
Planting roots, building town as we go.

[[Women]]
Pressing on as we're pressed,
Through the winds and the rains,

[[All]]
Taking risks, tempting fate,
Till we open every gate--
That's what makes this country great!

[[Wilson]]
America, my friends! A land of opportunities!
And here it is! The land itself--

Land--yes! Land to build a future on!
Dirt--yes! Dirt, as in pay dirt!
Filth--yes! Filth, as in filthy lucre!

[[Chorus]]
Yes!

[[Wilson]]
Up in the Klondike we shoveled it aside to
get at the wealth which it contained. Down
here, it is the wealth!

Buy it now,
Sell it later
And get rich guick!
Pick a spot,
Buy a plot,
When the spot gets hot,
Sell the lot.
My friends, you know what
You just got?
You got really rich--!

[[Chorus]]
Really quick!

[[Wilson]]
Bound to make a bundle! Sure thing!

[[Chorus]]
Bound to make a bundle--!

[[Housewife]]
My name is Mary Monahan.

[[Wilson and Chorus]]
Bound to make a bundle,
Just a matter of time...

[[Housewife]]
The day the sales office opened in Boca Raton
I bought myself a lot. I paid seven hundred dollars for
that lot. Last week I sold it for seven thousand.

[[Chorus]]
Yess!

[[Woman]]
I'll give you ten!

[[Man]]
I'll give you twenty!

[[Woman]]
Thirty!

[[Man]]
Thirty-five!

[[Wilson]]
Can you hear the knocking?
Hear that sound!

[[Bookkeeper]]
My name is Winthrop Tippet.

[[Wilson]]
What is that that's knocking
All aorund?

[[Wilson and Chorus]]
Opportunity!

[[Bookkeeper]]
A month ago I bought a piece of property in
Boca Raton for two thousand dollars.

[[Wilson]]
Through these gates
Your fortune waits
Around the corner.

[[Bookkeeper]]
Yesterday I sold it for five times that.

[[Wilson and Chorus]]
Boca Raton...Come down to Boca Raton...

[[Farmer's Wife]]
My name is Ethel Mudd.

[[Wilson and Chorus]]
Boca Raton...

[[Farmer's Wife]]
Last month my Bert and I bought a lot in Boca Raton
with our life's savings of eight thousand dollars. This
morning we were offered thirty thousand dollars for that
lot and do you know what we said?

[[Farmer, Wife and Chorus]]
No!

[[First Buyer]]
I'll give you forty!

[[Hollis]]
Buy it now,
Build it later
And get rich quick!

[[Second Buyer]]
Fifty!

[[Third Buyer]]
Seventy!

[[Nellie]]
Pick a spot,
Build or not,
When the spot gets hot,
Sell the lot--

[[Nellie and Hollis]]
And with what you've got,
Buy another plot
And get even richer even quicker!

[[Nellie, Hollis and Chorus]]
Bound to make a bundle!

[[First Buyer]]
Make that eighty!...

[[First Seller]]
Footage on the ocean...

[[Second Seller]]
This one's worth a hundred, at least...

[[Nellie, Hollis and Chorus]]
Bound to make a bundle!
Just a matter of time!

[[Third Buyer]]
A hundred twenty-five!

[[Chorus]]
Just a matter of time!

[[Wilson]]
Buy it now,
Sell it later
And get rich quick!

[[Chorus]]
Sure thing!

[[Wilson]]
Buy for two,
Ask for four...

[[Chorus]]
Yes!

[[Wilson]]
If the deal falls through
Prices soar...

[[Chorus]]
Yes!

[[Wilson]]
Might be someone who
Offers even more...

[[Chorus]]
Yes!

[[Wilson]]
Then it's toodle-oo
And you're out the door...

[[Chorus]]
Yes!

[[Wilson]]
'Cause you're well-to-do,
'Cause you made your score...
'Cause you got rich quick!

[[Chorus]]
You, where have you been all my life?

[[Wilson]]
Bound to make a bundle!

[[Chorus]]
You, you're the answer to my prayers!

[[Wilson]]
Bound to make a bundle!

[[Hollis]]
You, you're one in a million!

[[Chorus]]
Boca Raton, come down to Boca Raton,
Where once again he's killing your dreams
Because he keeps on cooking up schemes
Until they fall apart at the seams.

All alone
And fucked for good,
Fucked as on-
Ly Willie could.

[[Sellers]]
Boca Raton, I'll take five hundred thousand...
Four-fifty...four hundred...three
Come down to Boca
Raton hundred...
Where every sidewalk
sparkles and gleams.
City beautiful, bye-bye--!
Two hundred and fifty..
Boca Raton,
Come down to Boca Raton,
Where Wilie's gone and Two twenty-nine...
done it again,
Done it again, Two hundred...
Done it again,
Done it again... Fifty..Twenty-five..Ten..Five?
