Razzle Dazzle

Razzle Dazzle lyrics, from the 1975 musical Chicago

BAILIFF(Spoken)
Mr. Flynn, his honor is here
BILLY(Spoken)
Thank you. Just a moment.
You ready?

ROXIE(Spoken)
Oh Billy, I’m scared.

BILLY(Spoken)
Roxie, you got nothing to worry about.
It’s all a circus, kid. A three ring circus.
These trials- the wholeworld- all show business.
But kid, you’re working with a star, the biggest!

The Muppet Show - the great Gonzo and Joel Grey in Razzle Dazzle(Singing)
Give — €˜em the old razzle dazzle
Razzle Dazzle — €˜em
Give — €˜em an act with lots of flash in it
And the reaction will be passionate
Give — €˜em the old hocus pocus
Bead and feather — €˜em
How can they see with sequins in their eyes?
What if your hinges all are rusting?
What if, in fact, you’re just disgusting?

Razzle dazzle — €˜em
And they;ll never catch wise!

Give — €˜em the old Razzle Dazzle

BILLY AND COMPANY
Razzle dazzle — €˜em
Give — €˜em a show that’s so splendiferous

BILLY
Row after row will crow vociferous

BILLY AND COMPANY
Give — €˜em the old flim flam flummox
Fool and fracture — €˜em

BILLY
How can they hear the truth above the roar?

BILLY AND COMPANY
Throw — €˜em a fake and a finagle
They’ll never know you’re just a bagel,

BILLY
Razzle dazzle — €˜em
And they’ll beg you for more!

BILLY AND COMPANY
Give — €˜em the old double whammy
Daze and dizzy — €˜em
Back since the days of old Methuselah
Everyone loves the big bambooz-a-ler

Give — €˜em the old three ring circus
Stun and stagger — €˜em
When you’re in trouble, go into your dance

Though you are stiffer than a girder
They’ll let you get away with murder
Razzle dazzle — €˜em
And you’ve got a romance

COMPANY(The same time as BILLY’s)
Give — €˜em the old
Razzle Dazzle

BILLY
Give — €˜em the old Razzle Dazzle
Razzle dazzle — €˜em
Show — €˜em the first rate sorceror you are
Long as you keep — €˜em way off balance
How can they spot you’ve got no talent
Razzle Dazzle — €˜em

BILLY AND COMPANY
Razzle Dazzle — €˜em
Razzle Dazzle — €˜em

And they’ll make you a star!
