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

I'm gonna be a celebrity
That means somebody eveyone knows
They're gonna recognize my eyes
My hair, my teeth, my boobs, my nose

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

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

[ROXIE (spoken)]
You wanna know something? I always wanted to be in
Vaudeville. And now that I'm a celebrity, I'm
gonna have me a swell act, too. Yeah, I'll get a boy
to work with- someone who can lift me up, show me off-
Oh hell, I'll get two boys. It'll frame me better.
Think "BIG", Roxie, think "BIG."
I'm gonna get a whole bunch of boys.
