Gin / Wild lyrics

Gin / Wild

Burrs
[‘hahahahaha! Hey! Let’s get this party goin’!
No! I mean really get things goin’ -
I want you to unsnap those garters and those starched lapels.
It is time to get witty and wild -
it is time to get low -
It is time for’gin. ‘‘]

If I go mean.
If I go mad.
Blame it on the Gin.
If i go (fbfbfbfbfb)
If I go (eeyeyyeyy)
Blame it on the gin.

Don’t gimme no whisky
Cuz I need more than booze.
Just pour me the real stuff
So I can taste my blues.

I need my party to begin.
My party to begin.
My party!

If you go soft
And tell the truth
Blame it on the gin.
If you hard and gotta blow
Blame it on the
Blame it on the ([paaah] you know)

If you find yourself
in some precarious situation
wondering who the hell’s hallucination
Am I in’

Don’t look at me.
Blame it on the-
Blame it on the-
Blame it on the-

Gin gin gin gin
Gin gin gin

Guests

My dearest Queenie, I feel I must warn
you.

Queenie
You don’t even like me and I don’t like
You so just cut the crap.

Dolores
Did you know Burrs was married’
Beautiful and blonde, just like you. He
Beat her. With the heel of his shoe. ‘Till
her lips turn blue.’ Little girl, don’t you
understand, the second you think you
know it all, life goes and takes a bit bite
outta your ass. And I’ve got the scars to
prove it.

Guests
Don’tcha queer up my party
if you do there’s hell to pay
Don’tcha know it’s my party
time for the devil in me to play ‘

sneaks up behind her.)

(She turns to go. Burrs violently grabs
her.)

Burrs
Don’t you ever think about leaving me. I love
you. I love you. Don’t you ever think
about not loving me.

angry kiss. Kate appears in time to see
Queenie breaking away from Burrs)
