CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Piece Of The Action Music: Cy Coleman
Lyrics: Ira Gasman
Book: David Newman + Ira Gasman + Cy Coleman
Premiere: Saturday, April 26, 1997

I feel like a pinball in a pinball machine
I always end up in the hole
The lights keep on flashing
If you know what I mean
But I always end up in the hole
This life I made ain't near
What I expect
You see I paid my dues
Now when do I collect



I wanna piece of the action
I wanna slice of a pie
I wanna get on the fast track
And kiss all of this goodbye
It's time for uppin' the ante
It's time for raisin' the stakes
I got the looks and the talent
I got whatever it takes

I started out in the gutter
I made it up to the street
I got my eye on a penthouse
A neat little penthouse suite
I'm gonna go for the glory
I'm gonna shoot for the moon
I wanna piece of the action
And I'm gonna get it
I'm gonna get it soon

Yes, I feel it comin'
I feel it comin' this time
And no one can stop me
Nothin' can stop me, now
And I got it comin', this time
And all those two bit tricks
Can take a walk
I got dreams as big as New York

I wanna piece of the high life
I wanna taste of the cream
I wanna play in the big leagues
And be on the winning team
I'm gonna go for the glory
I'm gonna shoot for the moon
I wanna piece of the action
And I'm gonna get it I'm gonna get it soon
