Benny's Dispatch Song Lyrics

 
Benny, Nina
In The Heights Soundtrack - Musical, 2008
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Benny's Dispatch BENNY:
Check one two three. Check one two three.
This is Benny on the dispatch. Yo.
Atencion, Yo, Attention,
It's Benny, and I'd like to mention
I'm on the microphone this mornin'
Honk ya horn if ya want it.

Okay, we got traffic on the west side
Get off at 79th, and take the left side
Of Riverside drive, and ya might slide
West End's ya best friend if
you catch the lights
And don't take the Deegan
Manny Ramirez is in town this weekend
Sorry Dominicans, take route 87,
You ain't getting back in again...
Hold up a minute...



NINA:
Benny, hey-

BENNY:
Nina, you're home today!

NINA:
Any sign-

BENNY:
Of your folks, they're on their way!

NINA:
Anyway-

BENNY:
It's good to see your face-

NINA:
Anytime-

BENNY:
Hold up a minute, wait!
You used to run this dispatch, right?

NINA:
Once or twice-

BENNY:
Well check the technique! Yo!
There's a traffic accident
I have to mention
At the intersection of 10th
Ave and the Jacob Javitz
Convention Center
And check it, don't get stuck
In the rubber-neckin'
on 192cd, There's a double-decker
Bus wreck
Now listen up, we got a special guest!

Live and direct from a year out west!
Welcome her back,
Cause she looks mad stressed!
Nina Rosario, the Barrio's best!

Honk you horns...
She's smiling...say hello!

NINA:
Hello... Good morning!
I better find my folks.
Thanks for the welcome wagon.

BENNY:
Anytime. Anytime, Nina.

Wait here with me.
It's getting hot outside,
Turn up the AC,
Stay here with me.
