Cell Block Tango
by Glee Cast



And now, the six married murderesses of the Cook County Jail
In their rendition of the cell block tango
Pop! Six! Squish! Uh uh! Cicero! Lipschitz!
Pop! Six! Squish! Uh uh! Cicero! Lipschitz!
Pop! Six! Squish! Uh uh! Cicero! Lipschitz!
Pop! Six! Squish! Uh uh! Cicero! Lipschitz!

He had it coming
He had it coming
He only had himself to blame
If you'd a been there, if you'd a seen it
I betcha you would've done the same
Pop! Six! Squish! Uh uh! Cicero! Lipschitz!
Pop! Six! Squish! Uh uh! Cicero! Lipschitz!

You how people have these little habits that getcha down
Like, Bernie, Bernie he liked to chew gum
No, not chew, pop!
So I came home this one day and I'm really irritated
And I'm looking for a little sympathy
And there's Bernie, lying on the couch, drinking a beer and chewing
No, not chewing, popping!
So I said to him, I said you pop that gum one more time, and he did
So I took the shotgun off the wall and I fired two warnings shots
Into his head

He had it coming
He had it coming
He only had himself to blame
If you'd a been there, if you'd a heard it
I betcha you would've done the same

I meet Ezechiel Young from Salt Lake City about two years
And he told me he was single and we hit it off right away
So we started living together
He'd go to work, he'd come home, I'd fix him a drink, and we'd have dinner
And then I found out single, he told me, single my butt
Not only was he married, oh no, he had six wives
One of those Mormans, you know
So that night when he came home from work, I fixed him his as drink, as usual
You know, some guys just can't hold their arsenic

He had it coming (Pop! Six! Squish! Uh uh! Cicero! Lipschitz!)
He had it coming (Pop! Six! Squish! Uh uh! Cicero! Lipschitz!)
He took a flower in its prime (Pop! Six! Squish! Uh uh! Cicero! Lipschitz!)
And then he used it (pop!) and he abused it (six!)
It was a murder, but not a crime (squish, uh uh, Cicero, lipschitz!)

Now I'm standing in the kitchen, carving up the chicken for dinner, minding my own business
In storms my husband Wilbert in a jealous rage
You've been doing the milkman he says, he was crazy and he kept on screaming
You've been doing the milkman
And then he ran into my knife, he ran into my knife ten times

The dirty bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
The dirty bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
They had it coming (they had it coming)
They had it coming (they had it coming)
They had it coming (they had it coming) all along (all along)
'Cause if they used us ('cause if they used us) and they abused us (and they abused us)
How could you tell us that we were wrong
Could you tell us that we were wrong
