You know how people
have these little habits
That get you down. Like Bernie.
Bernie you like to chew gum.
No, not chew. POP.
So I came home this one day
And I´m really irritated
I´m looking for a little sympathy
and there´e Bernie lyin´
on the couch, drinkin´ a beer
and chewin´. No, not chewin´.
Poppin´. So, I said to him,
I said, "Bernie, you pop that
gum one more time..."
and he did.
So I took the shotgun off the wall
and I fired two warning shots
into his head.

[GIRLS]
He had it coming
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!

[ANNIE (Spoken)]
I met Ezekiel Young from
Salt Lake city about two years ago
and he told me he was single
and we hit it off right away.
So, we started living together.
He´d go to work, he´d come home
I´d fix him a drink, We´d have dinner.
And then I found out,
"Single" he told me?
Single, my ass.
Not only was he married
...oh, no, he had six wives.
One of those Mormons, you know.
So that night, after he came home from work,
I fixed him his drink as usual.
You know, some guys just can´t hold
their arsenic.

[GIRLS]
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
He had it coming
He had it coming
He only had himself
to blame
If you´d have been there
If yo´d have seen it
I betcha you would
Have done the same!

[LIZ,ANNIE,JUNE,MONA]
Hah! He had it coming
He had it coming
He took a flower
In its prime
And then he used it
And he abused it
It was a murder
But not a crime!

[VELMA AND HUNYAK]
Pop, six, squish, uh-uh

[JUNE (Spoken)]
Now, I´m standing in the kitchen
carvin´ up the chicken for dinner,
minding my own business,
and in storms my husband Wilbur,
in a jealous rage.
"You been screwin´ the milkman,"
he says. He was crazy
and he kept on screamin´,
"you been screwin the milkman."
And then he ran into my knife.
He ran into my knife ten times!

lecsaptam a fejet. De nem igaz, en artatlan

Uncle Sam hogy en tettem. probaltam

[JUNE (Spoken)]
Yeah, but did you do it?

[HUNYAK]
UH UH, not guilty!

[VELMA]
My sister, Veronica and
I had this double act
and my husband, Charlie,
traveled round with us.
Now, for the last number in our act,
we did these 20 acrobatic tricks in a row
One, two, three, four,five...splits, spread eagles,
back flips,flip flops,
one right after the other.
So this one night before the show we are down at the Hotel Cicero,
the three of us, boozin´
havin´ a few laughs and
And we run out of ice.
So I go out to get some.
I come back, open the door
and there´s Veronica and
Charlie doing Number Seventeen-
the spread eagle.

[GIRLS]
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 tricks in a row,
one,two,three,
I betcha
You would
Have done
The same!
He had
It coming
He had 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?

[VELMA]
They had it coming
[GIRLS]

I loved Alvin Lipschitz
more than I can possibly say.
He was a real artistic guy...
sensitive... a painter.
But he was always trying
to find himself.
He´d go out every night
looking for himself
and on the way
he found Ruth,
Gladys,
Rosemary and Irving.
I guess you could say we broke up
because of artistic differences.
He saw himself as alive
and I saw him dead.

[GIRLS]
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!
