Sweet Charity, 1966
REFRAIN 1
The minute you walked in the joint
I could see you were a man of distinction,
A real big spender,
Good-looking, so refined.
Say, wouldn't you like to know
What's going on in my mind?
So let me get right to the point,
I don't pop my cork for ev'ry guy I see.
Hey, big spender,
Spend a little time with me.
BRIDGE
Do you wanna have fun?
How's about a few laughs?
I can show you a good time,
Do you wanna have fun...fun...fun...
Fun...laughs...fun...laughs...
Fun...laughs...fun...laughs...
Fun...laughs...good time...
Fun...laughs...good time...
Fun...laughs...good time...
Let me show you a good time.
REFRAIN 2
Hey, big spender!
Hey, big spender!
The minute you walked in the joint
I could see you were a man of distinction,
A real big spender,
Good looking, so refined.
Say wouldn't you like to know
What's going on in my mind?
So let me get right to the point,
I don't pop my cork for every guy I see.
Hey, big spender!
Hey, big spender!
Hey, big spender,
Spend a little time with me,
Fun, laughs, good time...
Fun, laughs, good time...
Fun, laughs, good time...
