Smash Cast The 20th Century Fox Mambo Lyrics

Last updated: 07/01/2012 11:00:00 AM

[Marilyn:]
At Paramount it's "Ooh la la."
The Warner Brothers' Cha cha cha.
And L.B. Mayer loves his schmaltz,
So MGM made the great waltz.
But the 20th Century Foxtrot
It's precious, but precious!
It's not hot
To make the big boys hire me—
Please make that rhythm fiery.

Come on, boy and girls,
Make me over!

In this factory
Where dreams can come true,
Are you ready
To make someone new?
You're the team
That must teach me to do
The 20th Century Fox Mambo.

Done the homework,
And I'll pass the test.
I'll do whatever
My teacher suggests—
I can do it clothed
Or undressed,
The 20th Century Fox Mambo.

Make it up,
Shake it up,
Let the fantasies begin!
Here's the dope:
To get cast,
Change the past—
Make the light
Just right for sin.
Let's go!

Take a gamble
'Cause it's safe to bet.
Mr. Zanick ain't seen nothing yet.
When we're finished
He'll never forget
This 20th Century Fox.

[Ensemble:]
For fame play her game,
Change your name
To the 20th Century Fox

Make it up,
Shake it up.

[Marilyn:]
Make me feel
Like the main attraction.
Change the clothes,
Fix the nose,
And then 5, 6, 7, 8,
Action!

[Ensemble:]
Action!

[Marilyn:]
Now I'm blonde,
But I ain't so dumb.

[Ensemble:]
No!

[Marilyn:]
Hollywood will be
Under my thumb.

[Ensemble:]
Yes!

[Marilyn:]
I'll change partners
Until I become
Your 20th Centurty Fox
Mambo!
