What A Waste

 
Miss Saigon Soundtrack Musical, 1975
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

What A Waste [ENGINEER]
Check it out, hey
Yo! Check it out!
Hey you, you want to try my girls, try my girls! ect...

[DOORMEN]
Girls! I got girls!

[DOORMEN]
Gorgeous Girls!

[DOORMEN]
Very nice!

[TOURISTS]
Hey wow! Oh look! We gotta see!

[VENDORS]
Bags, Gucci bags!

[VENDORS]
Cultured pearls

[VENDORS]
Shrimp and rice!

[TOURISTS]
I'm glad my wife's not here with me

[ENGINEER]
What a waste
To pay for my keep
I'm rounding up sheep
To fleece here in Bangkok

I'm disgraced
I cant get ahead
There's nothing as dead
As peace here in Bangkok

Ten cents an hour - And I stand all day
I could sell Kim for ten times my pay

(to some TOURISTS)

If your looking for fun
Original sin?
If you want to put out
Then you gotta come in.

(TOURISTS pass; he tries to make them take his leaflets)

[DOORMEN]
Girls! I got girls!

[DOORMEN]
Gorgeous girls!

[DOORMEN]
Very nice!


[DOORMEN]
Girls!

[ENGINEER]
(to TOURISTS)

Gee, isn't Bangkok really neat?

[DOORMEN]
I got girls!

[ENGINEER]
The things they're selling on the street

[DOORMEN]
Girls!

[ENGINEER]
Fresh dog, if that's what you'd enjoy

[DOORMEN]
Worth the price

[ENGINEER]
A girl, or if you want, a boy

[DOORMEN] and [ENGINEER]
Hey, come to me
First drink is free

[ENGINEER]
(to TWO JAPANESE TOURISTS)

Don't be a lump, you can hump
For a small extra fee

[ENGINEER]
I'm depressed
Fot hustling amours
To Japanese tours
Is no treat in Bangkok

I'm the best
But where's a Marine
With fistfuls of green
I'd cheat him in Bangkok?

Ten cents an hour...

(The CLUB OWNER, the ENGINEER's boss passes)

Evening, Boss.
(The OWNER leaves)

...Screw the Siamese
Look how the're ripping off...refugees

(to another PASSER-BY)

If your looking for fun
Original sin
If you want to put out
Then you gotta come in

[DOORMEN]
Girls!

[ENGINEER]
Hey boys, don't stand around like wimps

[DOORMEN]
I got girls!

[ENGINEER]
Watch out, those guys - They'r really
Pimps

[DOORMEN]
Girls!

[ENGINEER]
You want some thrills, I'll guarantee
Some

[DOORMEN]
Half the price

[ENGINEER]
Tonight, a twosome or a threesome

(unfolding folders of photos)

Look what you'll see!

[ENGINEER]
Hey, that's a joke. Mine blow smoke
For a small extra fee

[VENDORS]
Acid, Marijuana and hash

[DOORMEN]
We'll get you high in a flash

[TOURISTS]
Let's go see what they mean

[VENDORS]
Chicken, lemon grass and bamboo

[TOURISTS]
We want to try something new!

[DOORMEN]
Come do the ping pong routine!

[ENGINEER]
Hey Joe, try taking a little excursion
You'll feel good from a little perversion

[TOURISTS]
OH YEAH!

[ENGINEER]
Massage requiring total immersion

[TOURISTS]
OH WOW!

[ENGINEER]
Some strange positions say me are persian

[TOURISTS]
OH! NO!

Drinks are on me
First girl is free
What can I say? You get me
For a small extra fee

[VENDORS]
Acid, Marijuana and hash

[DOORMEN]
We'll get you high in a flash

[TOURISTS]
Let's go see what they mean

[VENDORS]
Chicken, lemon grass and bamboo

[TOURISTS]
We want to try something new!

[DOORMEN]
Come do the ping pong routine!
