Picture Show Young Bonnie:

I can see me
I can see me
Livin' just like Clara
Sippin' 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
Flirtin' madly, lookin' 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 were no 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 nothin' I can't do with a gun!

Young Bonnie:

I'll be ready.
I'll be ready.
When I switch to Clara.
Ridin' horses, goin' steady
With a guy who owns a jazz bar.

Young Clyde:

I'm gonna make a whole lotta 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.

Both Bonnies:

I can see me!
Can you see me?

Bonnie:

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!

Both Clydes:

Bang! Bang! You're dead!

Clyde:

Ain't nothin' I can't do with a gun.

Judge (Spoken):

Marvin Ivan Barrow,
Clyde Chestnut Barrow:
You've been found guilty on
One count of burglary,
And two counts of auto theft.
You're both hereby sentenced to serve
Two years at the McLennan County Jail.

Clyde:

I'm gonna be the guy that 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 (Same time as Clyde):

It must be great to be called
The "it" girl,
That isn't what they're callin' me.
But one day soon I betcha 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-

Clyde (Same time as Bonnie):

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-

Clyde:

AL Capone!

Bonnie:

Clara Bow!
