Pop, six, squish, uh uh, cicero, lipshitz, x4

And now, the six merry murderesses of the Cook's County Jail in their rendition of: The Cell Block Tango

Pop, six, squish, uh uh, cicero, lipshitz, x2

He had it coming, he had it coming
He only had himself to blame
If you'd been there
If you'd herd it
I bet ya, you would have done the same!

You now how people have these little habbits that get you down
Like bernie,
Bernie, he liked to chew gum
No
Not chew, pop
So, I came home this one day and I'm really irritated
And I'm looking for a little bit of sympathy
And there's bernie lying on the couch, drinking a beer and chewing
No
Not chewing, popin'!
So I said to him, I said
If you pop that gum one more time,
And he did
So, I took the shotgun of the wall and I fired two warning shots
Into his head!

He had it coming, he had it coming
He only had himself to blame
If you'd been there
If you'd heard it
I bet ya, you would have done the same!

I met Esakiel Young at saltlake city about 2 years ago
And he told me he was single and we hit it of right away
So, we started living together
He'd come home, I'd fix him a drink wed have dinner
And then I found out
Single he told me
Single my a**!
Not only was he married, oh no, he had six wives
One of thoese mormans you know
So that night, whe he came home from work I fixed him his drink as usally
You know, some guys just can't hold there arsenic!

He had it coming, he had it comimg
He took a power in his stride
And then he used
And he abused it
It was a murder but not a crime

Now I'm standing in the kitchen, carvin' up a chicken for dinner
Minding my own business
When in storms my husband wilber in a jealous rage
You've been screwing the milkman he says
He was crazy
And he kept on sayin you've been screwing the milman
He kept on saying it over again
You've been screwing the milkman
Then he ran into my knife
He ran into my knife 10 times.

If you'd been there, if you'd seen it,
I bet ya, you would have done the same

(Hunyak Sings in Hungarian)

My sister veronica and I had this double act
And my husband charlie traveled around with us
Now for the last number in our act we did these 20 acrobatic tricks in a row
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, backflips, flipflops splits, spread eagles
One right after the other
Now, we were staying at the hotel cicero
You know, boozing, having a few laughs when we runout of ice
So, I go out to get some
And when I came back, I open the door
And I see
Veronica and charlie doin number 17
The spread eagle.
Well, I was in such a state of shock, I completly blacked out, I can't remember a thing
And it wasn't til later, when I was washing the blood of my hands
I even knew they were dead!

They had it comeing, 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 x2

I loved elle lipshitz more then I could possibly say
He was a sensetive guy
A painter
Everynight he went out looking for himself
And on the way, he found,
Ruth, gladis, rosemary and Irving
You could say we broke up coz of artistic differences
He saw himself alive,
I saw him dead

The dirty bum bum bum bum bum x2

He had it coming, he had it coming
He only had himself to blame
Because he used us
And he abused us
It was a murder but not a crime

He had it coming, he had it coming
He had it coming all along
We didn't do it
But if we'd done it
How could you tell us that we were wrong.
