The 20th Century Fox Mambo

from Sound Stage by Jacqueline Novikov



Music & Lyrics by Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman


At Paramount it's "Oh la la"
The Warner Brothers "Cha cha cha"
And L.B. Mayer loves his schmaltz
So M.G.M. 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

In this factory where dreams can 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 teachers suggest
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 Cin-emascope

Take a gamble 'cause it's safe to bet
Mr. Zanick ain't seen nothin' yet
When we're finished he'll never forget
This 20th Century Fox

Make it up, shake it up
Make me feel like the main attraction
Change the clothes, fix the nose
And then 5, 6,7, 8 action!
Now I'm blond, but I ain't so dumb
Hollywood will be under my thumb
I'll change partners until I become
The 20th Century Fox Mambo!
