Cioffi (spoken):
Detectives have no opening night, Miss Harris. We make our entrance after the curtain has fallen on someone elses life.

Nikki:
It isnt wrong to be married to ones work, is it?

Cioffi:
Ah, no. No, not at all. Sometimes its no honeymoon.
I love my job.
(sung) I really do
And if I say so myself
Im good at it too
I catch the bad guys
Well, most of the time
So its a good life
A perfectly good life
Not exactly sublime
When Ive finished my work
And I crawl into bed
I reflect as I turn out the lights
That the day thats to come
And the week thats ahead
Will be lunch counter mornings
And coffee shop nights
Lunch counter mornings
And coffee shop nights

Nikki (spoken):
Well its reassuring to have such a dependable schedule. Like matinees every Wednesday!

Cioffi:
Or brisket and broad beans each Thurday!

Nikki:
With your friends!

Cioffi:
Yeah, well
(sung) I like my pals
The guys on the force
Were not very social
Theyre all married, of course
Sometimes we go bowling
Or have a few beers
So its a fine life
A perfectly fine life
I'd give it two cheers
'Cause sometimes I think
At the end of the day
As I read the last burglar his rights
That the life that I lead
Is a little bit gray
With its lunch counter mornings
And coffee shop nights
Lunch counter mornings
And coffee shop nights

Nikki (spoken):
But your acting roles. Well dont they make for a change?

Cioffi:
Oh, Miss Harris, each year from May 23rd to the 12th of June when I turn my life over to the Swallow Street Players, thats
more than a vacation for me. Thats an overture of hope! Thats the curtain rising on the greatest joy of my life. But the
rest of the year
(sung) The life that I lead
Thats a little bit gray
There are plenty of low days
And not many heights
Mostly lunch counter mornings
And coffee shop nights
Lunch counter mornings
And coffee shop nights
(spoken) I dont mean to seem forward, but might I walk you home?

Nikki:
Oh, Id be delighted! But, you said were not allowed to leave.

Cioffi:
Damn!
