Benny: (spoken in beat)
Hey, you, bum - Yeah you, move over
Get your ass off that Range Rover

Mark: (spoken in beat)
That attitude toward the homeless is exactly
What Maureen is protesting tonight

Close up, Benjamin Coffin III. Our ex-roommate, who married Alison Grey, of the Westport
Greys - then bought our building and the lot next door from his father-in-law, in hopes of starting
a cyber-studio.

Benny: (sung)
Maureen is protesting
Losing her performance space
Not my attitude

Roger:
What happened to Benny
What happened to his heart
And the ideals he once pursued

Benny:
And the owner of that lot next door
Has a right to do with it as he pleases

Collins:
Happy birthday, Jesus.

Benny:
The rent

Mark:
You're wasting your time

Roger:
We're broke

Mark:
And you broke your word - this is absurd

Benny:
There is one way you won't have to pay

Roger:
I knew it

Benny:
Next door, the home of Cyberarts, you see
And now that the block is re-zoned
Our dream can become a reality

You'll see boys
You'll see boys

A state of the art, digital, virtual interactive studio
I'll forego your rent
and on paper guarantee
That you can stay here for free
If you do me one small favor

Mark:
What?

Benny:
Convince Maureen to cancel her protest

Mark:
Why not just get an injunction or call the cops?

Benny:
Yeah I did, and they're on standby
But my investors would rather
I handle this quietly

Roger:
You can't just quietly wipe out an entire tent city
Then watch 'It's A Wonderful Life' on TV!

Benny:
You want to produce films and write songs?
You need somewhere to do it!
It's what we used to dream about
Think twice before you pooh-pooh it

You'll see boys
You'll see boys

You'll see - the beauty of a studio
That lets us do our work and get paid
With condos on the top
Whose rent keeps open our shop

Just stop the protest
And you'll have it made
You'll see - or you'll pack

Angel:
That boy could use some prozac

Roger:
Or heavy drugs

Mark:
Or group hugs

Collins:
Which reminds me, we have a detour to make tonight.
Anyone who wants to can come along

Angel:
Life support's a group for people coping with life,
We don't have to stay too long

Mark:
First I've got a protest to save

Angel:
Roger?

Roger:
I'm not much company, you'll find

Mark:
Behave!

Angel:
He'll catch up later
He's just got other things on his mind.
You'll see boys.

Mark and Collins:
We'll see boys.

Roger:
Let it be boys!

Collins:
I like boys.

Angel:
Boys like me!

ALL
We'll see.
