Today 4 U (the Loft) MARK & ROGER
Bustelo, Balbero
Banana by the bunch
A box of Cap'n Crunch
Will taste so good

ROGER
And fire wood

MARK
Look, it's Santa Claus

COLLINS
Hold your applause

ROGER
Oh, hi

COLLINS
Oh, hi? After seven months?

ROGER
Sorry

COLLINS
This boy could use some Stoli

ALL
Oh, Holy Night

ROGER
Struck gold at MIT

COLLINS
They expelled me for my theory
On actual reality
Which I'll soon impart to the couch potatoes
At New York University
Still haven't left the house?

ROGER
I was waiting for you
Don'tcha know?

COLLINS
Well tonight's the night
Come to the Life Cafe after Maureen's show

ROGER
No flow

COLLINS
Gentlemen, our benefactor
On this Christmas Eve
Whose charity is only matched
By talent, I believe
A new member of the Alphabet City
Avante-garde Angel Dumott Schunard

ANGEL
Today for you
Tomorrow for me
Today for you
Tomorrow for me

COLLINS
And you should hear her beat

ROGER
You earned this on the street?

ANGEL
It was my lucky day today on Avenue A
When a lady in a limousine drove my way
She said, "Darling, be a dear, haven't slept in a year
I need your help to make my neighbor's yappy dog disappear
This akita, Evita, just won't shut up
I believe if you play non-stop that pup
Will breathe its very last high-strung breath
I'm certain that cur will bark itself to death

Today for you
Tomorrow for me
Today for you
Tomorrow for me

We agreed on a fee
A thousand dollar guarantee
Tax free
And a bonus if I trimmed her trees
Now who could fortell
That it would go so well?
But sure as I am here
That dog is now in doggy hell

After an hour, Evita
In all her glory
On the window ledge
Of that twenty-third story
Like Thelma and Louise did
When they got the blues
Swan dove into the courtyard
Of the Gracie Mews

Today for you
Tomorrow for me
Today for you
Tomorrow for me

Back on the street
Where I met my sweet
Where he was moaning and groaning
On the cold concrete
The nurse took him home
For some Mercurochrome
Then I dressed his wound
And got him back on his feet
Sing it

Today for you
Tomorrow for me
Today for you
Tomorrow for me

I said today for you
Tomorrow for me
Today for you
Tomorrow for me
