Lyrics

[But it ain't
Oh, no, no, no, no
But it ain't]

[And now?
well, if this Flynn guy gets me off
With all this publicity
I'm in a whole word of
YES!]

The name on everybody's lips
Is gonna be Roxie
The lady raking in the chips
Is gonna be Roxie

I'm gonna be a celebrity
That means
Somebody everyone knows
They('re) gonna recognize my eyes
My hair my teeth my boobs my nose

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

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

Boys...
[Boys]
They're gonna wait outside in line
To get to see

Roxie
Think of those autographs
I'll sign,
'Good luck to ya, '

Roxie!

And I'll appear
In a lavalier that goes
All the way down to my waist

Here a ring,
There a ring,
Everywhere a-ring-a-ling

But always in the best of taste!

Mmmm, I'm a star!
And the audience loves me!
And I love them
And they love me for loving them
And I love them for loving me
And we love each other
And that's because none of us
Got enough love in our childhoods
And that's showbiz
Kid

She's given up her humdrum life

I'm gonna be sing it

Roxie
She made a scandal and a start

And Sophie Tucker will shit
I know
To see her name get billed below
Roxie Hart

Roxie...
Roxie...
Roxie...
Roxie...
Rox-ie...
Roxie...
Roxie...
