Entr'acte / Marilyn Monroe 2 Lyrics

By Blood Brothers - 1995 London Cast
Take from Blood Brothers - 1995 London Cast Recording Album

The house we got was lovely
the neighbours are a treat
they sometimes fight on a saturday night, but never in the week
("What time do you call this then?" "Time i got rid of you, ratbag. Ow!")
Since i pay the bills on time the Milkman insits i call him Joe
("Call me Joe")
He brings me bread and eggs and says i've got legs like Maryln Monroe
Sometimes he takes me dancin'
even takes me dancin'

I know our Sammy burnt the school down, well it's very easily done
if the teachers let the silly gits play with Magnesium
Thank god he only got probation, the judge was old and slow
("i'm old and slow")
Though it was kind of him said i reminded him of Maryln Monroe
("And could i take you dancing? I'd love to take you dancing, young lady")

Our Mickey's just turned 14, well you know he's at that age
When you mention girls or courting, he flies into a rage
("Shutup talking about me mother!")
He's got a thing for taking blackheads out and he thinks that i don't know
that he dreams all night of girls who look like Maryln Monroe
He's even started dancin'
Secret dancin'

As for the rest they've flown the nest
Got married or moved away
Our Donna-Marie's already got three
("Hello Mam")
She's a bit like me that way

And that other child of mine
i haven't seen for years although
each day i pray he'll be okay
not like poor Maryln Monroe
