What's playing at the Roxy? I'll tell you what's playing at the Roxy
A picture about a Minnesota man falls in love with a Mississippi girl
That he sacrifices everything and moves all the way to Biloxi
That's what's playing at the Roxy

What's in the daily news? I'll tell you what's in the daily news
Story about a man bought his wife, a small ruby
With what otherwise would have been his union dues
That's what's in the daily news

What's happening all over? I'll tell you what's happening all over
Guy sitting home by a television set
That used to be something of a rover
That's what's happening all over

Love is the thing that has nipped them
And it looks like Nathan's just another victim

Nicely spoken
Yes, sir

When you see a guy reach for stars in the sky
You can bet that he's doing it for some doll
When you spot a John waiting out in the rain
Chances are he's insane as only a John can be for a Jane

When you meet a gent paying all kinds of rent
For a flat that could flatten the Taj Mahal
Call it sad, call it funny but it's better than even money
That the guy's only doing it for some doll

When you see a Joe saving half of his dough
You can bet there'll be mink in it for some doll
When a bum buys wine like a bum can't afford
It's a cinch that the bum is under the thumb of some little broad

When you meet a mug lately out of the jug
And he's still lifting platinum folderol
Call it hell, call it heaven but it's probable twelve to seven
That the guy's only doing it for some doll

When you see a sport and his cash has run short
Make a bet that he's banking it with some doll
When a guy wears tails with the front gleaming white
Who the hell do you think he's tickling pink on Saturday night?

When a lazy slob takes a goody steady job
And he smells from Vitalis and Barbasol
Call it dumb, call it clever, ah, but you can get odds forever
That the guy's only doing it for some doll
Some doll, some doll, the guy's only doing it for some doll
