YOUNG BONNIE:
I can see me, I can see me
Living just like Clara
Sipping champagne, can't you see me
In the middle of a dance floor
That could be me, that could be me
Doing things like Clara
Flirting madly, looking dreamy
These are things you take a chance for
It must be great to be called the "it girl"
Your face on every magazine
That's where I'm gonna end up one day
Trust me
I wanna be her, I wanna be her
Dressed in style like Clara
I can see me, can you see me
The main attraction at the picture show
Like Clara Bow
Like Clara
YOUNG CLYDE:
I wanna live the life of an outlaw
I'm gonna be like Billy the Kid
And when the law has got me surrounded, no doubt
I'm gonna shoot my way out
There weren't a man alive to outdraw him
No bar-room bully could stand a chance
He had the looks that everyone goes for, me too
Billy I want to be you
Bang bang, you're dead
Bang bang, you're dead
Ain't nothing I cant do with a gun
YOUNG BONNIE:
I'll be ready, I'll be ready
When I switch to Clara
Riding horses, going steady
With a guy who owns a jazz bar
YOUNG CLYDE:
I'm gonna make a whole lot of money
I won't count cents like my ma and pa
I will wear Sunday clothes on a Tuesday, someday
No one will stand in my way
YOUNG BONNIE:
They say when you're a star in the movies
You get to keep the clothes you wear
Big stars make thirty dollars a week
Jesus!
I wanna be her, I wanna be her
Dressed in style like Clara
BONNIE:
I can see me, can you see me
The main attraction at the picture show
Like Clara Bow
Like Clara Bow
The main attraction at the picture show
YOUNG CLYDE:
Bang bang, you're dead
CLYDE:
Bang bang, you're dead
Ain't nothing I can't do with a gun
LAW OFFICER:
Marvin Ivan Barrow, Clyde Chestnut Barrow, you've been found guilty on one count of burglary, and two counts of auto theft. You are both hereby sentenced to serve two years at the McLennan County Jail.
CLYDE:
I'm gonna be the guy kids look up to
They'll cut their hair the way I cut mine
Capone was just like me when he started, some guy
He made it big, and so will I
BONNIE, overlapping:
It must be great to be called the "it girl"
That isn't what they're calling me
But one day soon I bet you they will
Trust me
I wanna be her, I wanna be her
Dressed in style like Clara
I can see me, can you see me
The main attraction at the picture show
Like Clara Bow
Like Clara Bow
The main attraction
Clara Bow
CLYDE, overlapping:
Capone is more to me than a hero
I wanna be like him
I wanna be like Al Capone
He's my hero
Al Capone, I wanna be you
Bang bang
Bang bang
Bang bang
I wanna be like Al Capone
