Chicago – Both Reached For The Gun lyrics

(bandmaster speaking)
Mr. Billy flynn and the press conference rag
Notice how his mouth never moves...... Almost

Where'd you come from
Mississippi
And your parents
Very wealthy
Where are they now
Six feet under
But she was granted one more start
The convent of the sacred heart

When'd ya get here
1920
How old were you
Don't remember
Then what happened
I met amis, then he stole my heart away
Convinced me to elope one day

(mary sunshine)
Oh you poor dear I can't believe what you've been through
A convent girl
A runaway marriage, now tell us roxie
Who's fred casely
My ex-boyfriend
(reporters)why'd you shoot him
I was leaving
Was he angry
Like a madman
Still I said fred move along
She knew that she was doing wrong

Then describe it
He came toward me
With the pistol
From my bureau
Did you fight him
Like a tiger
He had strength and she had none
And yet we both reached for the gun

Oh yes
Oh yes
Oh yes we both
Oh yes we both
Oh yes we both
Reached for
The gun
The gun
The gun
The gun
Oh yes we both
Reached for the gun
For the gun

(reporters)
Oh yes
Oh yes
Oh yes they both
Oh yes they both
Oh yes they both
Reached for
The gun
The gun
The gun
The gun
Oh yes they both
Reached for the gun
For the gun

(billy flynn)
Under-stand-able, under-stand-able
Yes it perfectly under-stand-able
Compre-hen-sible, compre-hen-sible
Not a bit reprehensible, its sooo de-fen-si-ble

(reporters)
How ya feelin'
Very frightened
(mary sunshine)
Are you sorry
(roxie speaking)
Are you kidding?
What's your statement
All I'd say is
Though my choo-choo jumped the track
I'd give my life to bring him back
And
Stay away from
What
Jazz and liquor
And
And the men who
What
Play for fun
And what
That's the thought that
Yea
Came upon me
When
When we both reached for the gun!!!!!!!!!!

(mary sunshine singing)
Under-stand-able, under-stand-able
(billy flynn and mary sunshine)
Yes it perfectly under-stand-able
Compre-hen-sible, compre-hen-sible
Not a bit reprehensible, its sooo de-fen-si-ble
(ding)

(reporters slowly at first then start to pick up speed)
Oh yes
Oh yes
Oh yes they both
Oh yes they both
Oh yes they both
Reached for
(lemme hear it)the gun
The gun
The gun
The gun
Oh yes they both
Reached for the gun
For the gun
(billy flynn)
A little louder

Oh yes
Oh yes
Oh yes they both
Oh yes they both
Oh yes they both
Reached for(oh yeah)
The gun
The gun
The gun
The gun
Oh yes they both
Reached for the gun
For the(now ya got it) gun

(billy flynn and reporters)
Oh yes
Oh yes
Oh yes they both
Oh yes they both
Oh yes they both
Reached for
The gun
The gun
The gun
The gun
Oh yes they both
Reached for the gun
For the gun

Oh yes
Oh yes
Oh yes they both
Oh yes they both
Oh yes they both
Reached for
The gun
The gun
The gun
The gun(x12)

(billy flynn)
Both reached for
The(hold note) gun(hold note)
(reporters)
The gun(x12)
Both reached for the gun
