The Lyrics


Here's what that scene with Joe Pesci might sound like if they ever turned "Goodfellas" into a musical.

Breaking up with laughter
Wracked with glib guffaws
It ain't your mirth I'm after
That never gave me pause

The thing you said was wrong
You're nuts to act this way
Do you think you'll last
Longer than today?

What are you thinking now
Now your fate is dire
Am I a funny clown
Humorist for hire

Should I plug your heart
Blast your feet out of your shoes
Explain away this thing to me
How do I amuse?

I could make ice-pickin'
Your new destiny
The way you say I'm "funny"
Ooh, it's funny to me

Our wives eat together
Our tykes do fun and games
But can I make my bullets
Stay out of your brain?

What is your problem now
Now you've wrought my ire
Should someone let you know
How you will expire

Should I stop your clock
With a brace of .42's
You say I pull your strings, cue me
How do I amuse?

We have shared armed robbery
Helped ourselves, beat poverty
We've shoveled former friends just for play
Whackin' made lugs, all filet'ed

Tell me I'm funny, how?
Now you're laugh-inspired
Will something reddish flow
Out of your spare tire

Should I chop your parts
And eviscerate you, too
Before I do those things, clue me
How do I amuse?

How do I amuse you
How do I amuse you
How do I amuse you

Thanks, my favorite Pescis are "Goodfellas" and "Raging Bull." Maybe "Home Alone" too but I haven't seent that in many years.
