SONG:  WE GOTTA WHACK HIM              VITO and LOUIE

 

LOUIE                       

What’re we gonna do?

 

VITO

We gotta whack him.

 

LOUIE                       

You think it’s really true?

 

VITO

We gotta whack him.

 

LOUIE                       

You think that’s really best?

 

VITO

I feel the stress.

 

VITO and LOUIE     

We gotta whack him.

 

VITO

It sounds a bit cliché.         

 

LOUIE                       

So we should whack him?

 

VITO

I know no other way.

 

LOUIE                       

We’re gonna  whack him?

 

VITO

The boss says that we must

And so we’ll just

 

VITO and LOUIE     

Go on and whack him

 

VITO

            Do not forget the simple fact.                                       

We have two guys we’re s’posed to whack.

 

LOUIE                       

And each one is to pay us for a whacking.

 

VITO

But if we whack them both today

 

LOUIE                       

Then no one’s left alive to pay

 

VITO             

And then with empty pockets we’ll go packing.

 

LOUIE                       

So what if he’s our boss?

 

VITO

He said to whack him.

 

LOUIE                       

So did our other boss.

 

VITO

He said to whack him.

 

LOUIE                       

What are we gonna do?

 

VITO

I feel confused.

 

VITO and LOUIE     

We gotta whack him.

 

LOUIE                       

He shouldn’t have to go

 

VITO

We gotta whack him.

 

LOUIE                       

But we could use the dough.

 

VITO

And so we  whack him.

 

LOUIE                       

He’s such a pleasant guy

 

VITO

This means goodbye.

 

VITO and LOUIE     

We gotta whack him.

 

LOUIE                       

If Boss One wants some guy knocked off                           

And we know it’s our other boss,

Should we tell Boss Two about our mission?

 

VITO

If Boss B says to whack Boss A

And then expects us to obey

That puts us in a very bad position.

 

It does not seem quite right                                            

To whack your boss.

 

LOUIE                       

We have no other choice.

We’re at a loss.

 

VITO

I wish that we were through.

 

LOUIE                       

I guess it’s true.

 

VITO and LOUIE     

We gotta whack him.

We gotta whack him.                                    

We gotta whack him.
