Music A To Z: C Is For...

C is for... Cell Block Tango from the musical Chicago and Conga by Gloria Estefan.

You'll have to pardon me, I've had the Cell Block Tango stuck in my head since Tuesday nights episode of Glee. I've blasting it in my car for days now.

You know how people He had it coming

Bernie liked to chew gum.
No, not chew. Pop. Well, I If you'd have been there
came home this one day and If you'd have seen it
I am really irritated, and I betcha you would
looking for a little sympathy Have done the same!
and there's Bernie layin' on He had it coming
the couch, drinkin' a beer and He had it coming
chewin'. No, not chewin'. He only had himself to blame.
Popin'. So, I said to him, I If you'd have been there
said, "Bernie, you pop that If you'd have seen it
gum one more time..." I betcha you would
And he did! Have done the same!

So I took the shotgun off the wall
and fired two warning shots...
...into his head.

He had it coming

He only had himself to blame.
If you'd have been there
If you'd have heard it
I betcha you would
Have done the same!

I met Ezekiel Young from He had it coming
Salt Lake City about two years ago He had it coming
and he told me he was single He only had himself
and we hit it off right away. To blame.
So, we started living together. If you'd have been there
He'd go to work, he'd come work, I'd mix If you'd have seen it
Him a drink, we'd have dinner. Well, it was I betcha you would
like heaven in two and a half rooms. Have done the same!
And then I found out, He had it coming
"Single" he told me? He had it coming
Single, my ass. Not only was he married. He only had himself
...oh, no, he had six wives. To blame.
One of those Mormons, If you'd have been there
you know. So that night when If you'd have seen it
he came home. I mixed him I betcha you would
his drink as usual. Have done the same!

You know, some guys just can't hold their arsenic!

Hah! He had it coming Pop, Six, Squish, Uh-Uh,
He had it coming Cicero, Lipschitz!
He took a flower
In its prime
And the he used it Pop, Six, Squish, Uh-Uh,
And he abused it Cicero, Lipschitz!
It was a murder
But not a crime!

Now, I'm standing in the kitchen Pop, Six,
carvin' up the chicken for dinner, Squish, Uh-Uh,
minding my own business, Cicero, Lipschitz!
and in storms my husband Wilbur, Pop, Six,
in a jealous rage. Squish, Uh-Uh,
"You been screwin' the milkman," Cicero, Lipschitz!
he says. He was crazy Pop, Six,
and he kept on screamin' Squish, Uh-Uh,
"You been screwin' the milkman," Cicero, Lipschitz!

And then he ran into my knife! He ran into my knife TEN TIMES!

If you'd have been there
If you'd have seen it
I betcha you would have done the same!

Mit keresek, enn itt? Azt mondjok, hogy lakem lefogta a ferjemet
en meg lecsaptam a fejet. De nem igaz, en artatlan vagyok. Nem
tudom mert mondja Uncle Sam hogy en tetten. Probaltam a rendorsegen
megmagyarazni de nem ertettek meg...

Yeah, but did you do it?

UH UH, not guilty!

My sister, Veronica, and I did this double act He had it coming
and my husband, Charlie, used to travel He had it coming
round with us. Now for the last number in He only had
our act, we did these 20 acrobatic tricks in a Himself
row, one, two, three, four, five... To blame.
Splits, spread eagles, back flips, flip flops, If you'd have been there
one right after the other. Well, this one night If you'd have seen it
we are in Cicero, the three of us, sittin' up I betcha
in a hotel room, boozin' and havin' a few You would
laughs and we ran out of ice, Have done
so I went out to get some. The same!
I come back, open the door He had
And there's Veronica and It coming
Charlie doing Number Seventeen He had
-the spread eagle. It coming...

Well, I was in such a state of shock, I completely blacked out.
I can't remember a thing. It wasn't until later, when I was
washing the blood off my hands I even knew they were dead.

They had it coming
They had it coming
They had it coming all along.
I didn't do it
But if I'd done it
How could you tell me that I was wrong?

They had it coming
They had it coming
They had it coming
They had it coming
They had it coming
They took a flower
All along
In its prime
I didn't do it
And then they used it
But if I'd done it
And they abused it
How could you tell me
It was a murder
That I was wrong? But not a crime!

I love Alvin Lipschitz He had it coming
More than I can possibly say. He had it coming
He was a real artistic guy... He only had
Sensitive...a painter. Himself t
But he was troubled. To blame.
He was always trying If you'd have been
to find himself. There
He'd go out every night If you'd have seen it
looking for himself I betcha
and along the way You would
he found Ruth, Have done
Gladys, The same!
Rosemary and Irving.

I guess you can say we broke up because of artistic differences.
He saw himself as alive and I saw him dead.

The dirty bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
The dirty bum, bum, bum, bum, bum

They had it comin'
They had it comin'
They had it comin'
They had it comin'
They had it comin'
They had it comin'
All along
All along
'Cause if they used us
'Cause if they used us
And they abused us
And they abused us
How could you tell us
How could you tell us
That we were wrong?
That we were wrong?

He had it coming
He had it coming
He only had
Himself
To blame.
If you'd have been there
If you'd have seen it
I betcha you would have done the same!

You pop that gum one more time!

Single my ass.

Ten times!

Miert csukott Uncle Sam bortonbe.

Number Seventeen - the spread eagle.

Artistic differences.

I betcha you would have done the same!

I'm really lame and I love this song (I actually love all Gloria Estefan's Miami Sound Machine stuff and I listen to it when I'm alone in my car). It's the whole Cuban thing.
Conga
Come on , shake your body baby, do the conga
I know you can't control yourself any longer
Come on , shake your body baby, do the conga
I know you can't control yourself any longer

Come on , shake your body baby, do the conga
I know you can't control yourself any longer
Feel the rhythm of the music getting stronger
Don't you fight it 'til you tried it, do that conga beat

Everbody gather 'round now
Let your body feel the heat
Don't you worry if you can't dance
Let the music move your feet

It's the rhythm of the island, and like the sugar cane so sweet
If you want to do the conga, you've got to listen to the beat

Come on , shake your body baby, do the conga
I know you can't control yourself any longer
Feel the rhythm of the music getting stronger
Don't you fight it 'til you tried it, do that conga beat

Feel the fire of desire, as you dance the night away
'Cause tonight were gonna party, 'til we see the break of day

Better get yourself together, and hold on to what you've got
Once the music hits your system, there's no way your gonna stop

Come on , shake your body baby, do the conga
I know you can't control yourself any longer
Feel the rhythm of the music getting stronger
Don't you fight it 'til you tried it, do that conga beat

Come on , shake your body baby, do the conga
I know you can't control yourself any longer
Feel the rhythm of the music getting stronger
Don't you fight it 'til you tried it, do that conga beat

Come on , shake your body baby, do the conga
I know you can't control yourself any longer
Feel the rhythm of the music getting stronger
Don't you fight it 'til you tried it, do that conga beat

Come on , shake your body baby, do the conga
