The Lyrics Edit

Rita

  • Vinnie, you're my brother. I'm in a little trouble, and I didn't know where else to go. Listen to this obituary I just found in the Atlantic City paper.

Vinnie

  • You're holding it upside down. Put on your glasses!

Rita

    • (Reading,) "British shoe salesman inherits six million dollars from casino manager uncle."

Vinnie

  • I don't get it.

Rita

  • Let me start at the beginning.
  • (Singing,) I was having an affair.

Vinnie

  • An affair.

Rita

  • An affair,
  • And my lover's name was Tony,

Vinnie

  • Tony.

Rita

  • Hendon,
  • He managed my husband's casino.
  • He wore a tux.
  • I went crazy for the guy,
  • Which is why,

Vinnie

  • Which is why?

Rita

  • I embezzled from my husband.

Vinnie

  • Not your husband.

Rita

  • We stole from my husband's casino,
  • Six million bucks,

Vinnie

  • No!

Rita

  • And all in rocks.
  • Six million bucks in diamonds,
  • In a heart-shaped box!
  • Now I've gotta go to Monte Carlo!
  • I've gotta find this man:
  • He inherited the money,
  • I embezzled from my husband,
  • For my lover, who I accidently shot!

Vinnie

  • What?!

Rita

  • Well, I went to Tony's place,

Vinnie

  • Tony's place.

Rita

  • It was dark,
  • And I saw a woman leaving.

Vinnie

  • Woman?

Rita

  • Leaving.
  • I knew that my Tony was in there.
  • Well, I saw red,
  • And the room was very dark,

Vinnie

  • Very dark.

Rita

  • Very dark,
  • And I didn't have my glasses,

Vinnie

  • What, no glasses?

Rita

  • And there, in the dark, accidentally,
  • I shot him dead.
  • They found his will.
  • He left this English nephew
  • My entire six mil!
  • Now I've gotta go to Monte Carlo!
  • I've gotta find this man!

Vinnie

  • He inherited the money,

Rita

  • I embezzled from my husband ,

Vinnie

  • For the guy you accidentally shot at dawn!

Rita

  • Right!
  • And you've gotta go to Monte Carlo!

Vinnie

  • Me?

Rita

  • Just as fast as you can!

Vinnie

  • Why?

Rita

  • 'Cause I accidentally mentioned
  • It was you who took the money
  • When my husband accidentally found it gone.
  • What could I say?

Vinnie

  • What'd you say? What'd you say?

Rita

  • What could I do?

Vinnie

  • What'd you do? What'd you do?

Rita

  • They money was gone,
  • And Nicky caught on
  • So I blamed it...

Vinnie

  • No!

Rita

  • ...on you.
  • I said you lost it gambling.
  • I was desperate.
  • It just came out of my mouth,
  • You know, spontaneously.
  • And now... well... I think...
  • Nicky has a contract on your life

Vinnie

  • (Frightened,) I've gotta go to Monte Carlo.
  • I've gotta find this man.
  • I could end up in the river,
  • With a bullet in my liver,
  • Or piano wire wrapped around my neck!

Rita

  • Check!

Both

  • We've gotta go to Monte Carlo!
  • Just as fast as we can,
  • And find this man!
