SONG: Glitter Gulch
[A]Enter Madam X painted in a shocking pink [D]spangled dress
[E]Her teeth are perfect but her mouth is [A]loose
[A]Rubbing their hands together she persuades them that it's better [D]to confess
[E]Which unpleasant fate they'd like to [A]choose
[D]Every step might be your last
[D]Money signs are in your eyes suc[G]ker

[D]You've been taken in this time
[D]You might just get out alive if you're luc[G]ky
[D]All the vultures tuning in to Glitter Gulch
Are [E]looking in on you
And they're [A]hungry
He stood five feet tall in his elevator shoes and stovepipe hat
He was known by several different names
Prompted by Madam X he answered all their questions
And then after that he said I'm sick and tired of stupid games
[G]We've got prizes if you can afford
Some [D]small humiliation before you get your reward
And I'd [G]rather be an outlaw than an inlaw to you
And to live my life in miserable [A(7)]poverty
[A7]Than to have to grovel to have some dream home hovel
So watch me while I get a[G]way with prime time robbe[A]ry
As he enters Madam X he things of red raged faces and the sweet greenbacks
He climbed upon his honey and he covered her with money
As they do their victory dance
He thinks I hope they choke upon their laughter tracks
They can all go straight to hell while we howl down the whole hotel
