2016 Broadway Cast of Falsettos
Tight Knit Family (Reprise)
[MARVIN]
Well, the situation's this;
I don't want to cause a stink
I divorced my wife
She dried her eyes
Then she ran off with my shrink

But I want a tight-knit family
I want a wife who knows what love is
Maybe she does, I'm too damn peeved
Self-absorbed
Self-deceived
Who knows?

[MENDEL]
I should worry what he says
Like his words could hurt me worse
Marvin acts bereft
My acts of theft
Are incredibly perverse

[MARVIN]
You said it

[MENDEL]
It's embarra**ing
But I've got a nice, tight family
Son with a brain and nice, bright mother
Yes, I feel guilt. Yes, I'm annoyed
So was Jung, so was Freud!
But I, I know you'll come through it

[MARVIN]
I...I can't believe she loves you

[MENDEL]
If so, you'll end looking rich

[MARVIN]
Why, I'm sure she cannot love you!
But nothing's impossible!

[MENDEL]
Look who's got power

[MARVIN]
Ah, King of the Losers!

[MENDEL]
At eighty an hour!
He can b*t*h
I can stall

[MARVIN]
I want
[MENDEL]
I've got

[MARVIN]
I want

[BOTH]
It all!
I'm sure we're gonna come through it!
No doubt, the b*st*rd prepares!
We're needy and wanting
We're greedy as swine!

[MENDEL]
I just got a family

[MARVIN]
The family was mine!

[BOTH]
But he dares
Dares to brawl?

[MENDEL / MARVIN]
I got it all! / I want it all!
I got it all! / I want it all!
I got it all! / I want it all!
