The Transaction Lyrics


by . From Miss Saigon.


[ENGINEER]
Hey monsieur John, how'd you like to get rich
Go home in style. . .?

[JOHN]
Yeah okay, what's the pitch?

[ENGINEER]
A U.S. visa to help me out
Lend me a bit of your embassy clout

[JOHN]
There isn't a chance pal, you're too well known
Look, what I want is that girl in the dress

[ENGINEER]
You have a good eye
Her name is Kim, she's my new princess
You give her a try?

[JOHN]
It's my friend Chris
Who's the one feeling down

[MARINE]
I ordered a beer!

[ENGINEER]
She'll get him up,
It's her first night in town
But I have to warn you
She don't come cheap
It's got to be twenty for my princess

[JOHN]
Twenty dollars??

[ENGINEER]
She's sort of a virgin, well more or less
For twenty more you get a room and key
For fifty bucks, she's got the whole night free

[MARINES]
No one gives us a buzz
Like the Engineer does

[JOHN approaches CHRIS with Kim]

[JOHN]
Stop drooling white boy
You're losing your cool
You like this jail bait

[CHRIS]
John, open your eyes
This is the end of the line
This whole rotten scene
This little girl, we could be in the sack
For what it costs me to buy a big mac
John, it's time to go back -
You know what I mean

[JOHN]
I'm starting to cry pal
You're so out of touch
The trouble with you is you think too much
Oh
Ol' Dr. John knows what you need alright
I've bought you a present
She yours all night

[MARINES]
No one gives you a hit like the Engineer's shit!!

[Across the room, the ENGINEER speaks to KIM.]

[ENGINEER]
See little princess, I was right
You got the biggest score tonight
You caught that sergeant by the nose
You stay with him until he goes
Call him Chris
He'll like that

[KIM]
That marine
Wants his beer

[ENGINEER]
You said you needed a job
You said you'd turn a trick
You'd better prove it, and quick!

[He leads KIM to CHRIS]

[ENGINEER]
Voila!
