    Lyrics

    [Roxie]
    (spoken)
    Once it said in the paper:
    'gangland's Al Capelli seen at Chez Vito with cute blonde chorine'
    That was me.
    I clipped it and I saved it.
    why'know, all my life i wanted to was have my own act
    But no. No, no, no
    Always no
    One big world full of 'no'
    Then? Amos came along
    Safe, sweet Amos
    Who never says 'no'
    Lookit.
    I've never done this before
    But this is such a special night
    And you are such a great audience!
    And..And i just.. really feel like i can talk to you, why'know?
    So, Forget what you've read in the papers!
    And forget what you've heard on the radio!
    because, because... I'm gonna tell you the truth
    -not that the truth really matters-
    But, I'm gonna tell ya anyways..
    In the bed department?
    Amos was... ZERO
    i mean, when he made love to me, it was, like, he was fixing a carbouretter or sommink
    'i love ya honey, i love ya'
    Anywaays... I started fooling around
    Then i started screwing around
    -which is fooling around without dinner-
    Then, I met Fred Casely
    Wo said he could get me into Vaudeville
    but, That didn't really work out as i planned
    and I guess it didn't work out too great for fred either
    So, I gave up on the Vaudeville idea
    Because you figure after all those years
    Opportunity's just passed you by

    (singing)
    But it ain't
    Oh, no, no, no, no
    But it ain't

    (spoken)
    And now?
    well, if this Flynn guy gets me off
    With all this publicity
    I'm in a whole word of
    YES!

    [Roxie]
    The name on everybody's lips
    Is gonna be Roxie
    The lady raking in the chips
    Is gonna be Roxie

    I'm gonna be a celebrity
    That means
    Somebody everyone knows
    They('re) gonna recognize my eyes
    My hair my teeth my boobs my nose

    From just some dumb mechanics wife
    I'm gonna be Roxie
    Who says that murder's not an art?

    And who in case she doesn't hang
    Can say she started with a bang?
    Roxie Hart!

    Boys...
    [Boys]
    They're gonna wait outside in line
    To get to see

    [Roxie]
    Roxie
    Think of those autographs
    I'll sign,
    'Good luck to ya,'

    [Boys]
    Roxie!

    [Roxie]
    And I'll appear
    In a lavalier that goes
    All the way down to my waist

    [Boys]
    Here a ring,
    There a ring,
    Everywhere a-ring-a-ling

    [Roxie]
    But always in the best of taste!

    (spoken)
    Mmmm, I'm a star!
    And the audience loves me!
    And I love them
    And they love me for loving them
    And I love them for loving me
    And we love each other
    And that's because none of us
    Got enough love in our childhoods
    And that's showbiz
    Kid

    [Boys]
    She's given up her hum drum life

    [Roxie]
    I'm gonna be sing it

    [Boys]
    Roxie
    She made a scandal and a start

    [Roxie]
    And Sophie Tucker will shit
    I know
    To see her name get billed below
    Roxie Hart

    [Boys]
    Roxie...
    Roxie...
    Roxie...
    Roxie...
    Rox-ie...
    Roxie...
    Roxie...
