Tune Up #2 Lyrics

1996 Broadway
Rent the Musical - Tune Up #2 Lyrics


MARK
Tell the folks at home what you're doing Roger

ROGER
I'm writing one great song --

MARK
The phone rings

ROGER
Yes!

MARK
We screen

MARK/ROGER VOICEMAIL
Speak...

COLLINS
"Chestnuts roasting ---"

MARK & ROGER
Collins!

COLLINS
I'm downstairs

MARK
Hey!

COLLINS
Roger picked up the phone?

MARK
No, it's me

COLLINS
Throw down the key

MARK
A wild night is now pre-ordained

COLLINS
I may be detained

(Phone call cuts off)

MARK
What does he mean...?

(Phone rings again)

What do you mean "detained"?

BENNY
Ho ho ho!

MARK & ROGER
Benny! Shit

BENNY
Dudes, I'm on my way

MARK & ROGER
Great! Fuck

BENNY
I need the rent

MARK
What rent?

BENNY
This past year's rent which I let slide

MARK
Let slide? You said we were "golden"

ROGER
When you bought the building

MARK
When we were roommates

ROGER
Remember - you lived here

BENNY
How could I forget?
You, me, Collins and Maureen
How is the drama queen?

MARK
She's performing tonight

BENNY
I know
Still her production manager?

MARK
Two days ago I was bumped

BENNY
You still dating her?

MARK
Last month I was dumped

ROGER
She's in love

BENNY
She's got a new man?

MARK
Well, no...

BENNY
What's his name?

MARK & ROGER
Joanne

BENNY
Rent, my amigos, is due
Or I will have to evict you
Be there in a few

(Roger playing chords)

MARK
The power blows...
