Real Big News Lyrics

[CRAIG]
Big news! My saviour has arrived!
My intuition's never been so strong!
Big News! My career has been revived
All I needed was a snippy, pissy Yankee all along!
Take this superstitious city, add one little Jew from Brooklyn
Plus a college education and a mousy little wife
And big news! Real big news!
That poor sucker saved my life!

So give him fangs, give him horns
Give him scaly, hairy palms!
Have him droolin' out the corner of his mouth
He's a master of disguise
Check those bug-out creepy eyes
Sure, that fella's here to rape the whole damned South!
They'll be bangin' down my door
Yellin' "More, Craig, more!
"Call for justice! We need justice!
Beat the bastard! Kill the bum!"
Big news! Real big news!
My saviour has finally come!

According to reports obtained exclusively by this reporter
Prosecutor Dorsey has the villain in his sights
A highly ranking unnamed source in this investigation tells me
Leo Frank's the only likely culprit in this case
Anyone with any information on the suspect, Leo Frank
Should contact this reporter care of the Atlanta Georgian

[MAN]
I saw this little kid
Said, "Look what Leo did!"
And then she run and hid

[CRAIG]
Go on, go on, go on, go on now!

[PRETTY GIRL]
He sat down next to me
His hand went on my knee
I had to shake it free!

[REPORTERS]
Go on, go on, go on, go on now!

[MAN]
I say it isn't fair!
I saw his books, I swear
That man's a millionaire!

[A WOMAN, overlapping]
He likes 'em young and small!
Got nekkid pictures all
Pinned to his office wall!

[REPORTERS]
Go on, go on, go on, go on now!
(Oo, oo, oo)

[A MAN]
He has a kid, you know
Knocked up some student so
He paid to make her go|I know it, yes, I seen it, yes!

[A MAN, overlapping]
My brother says he knows
Wherever Leo goes
He carries Mary's clothes!
I know it, yes, I seen it, yes!

[A PSYCHIATRIST]
I've watched him for a while
Behind that creepy smile
The classic pedophile!
I know it, yes, I seen it, yes!

[ENSEMBLE]
I know it, yes, I seen it, yes!
I know it, yes, I seen it, yes!

[REPORTERS]
Go on, go on, go on, go on now!
Go on, go on, go on, go on now!

[CRAIG]
Look! You just scribble it down and it covers the town like molasses or mud!
Look! For us drunken ol' bums, opportunity comes in a magical flood!
Look! You might never be sure if your motives are pure, but your profits are clear!
Look! You were down and depressed
Now you're ridin' the crest of the scoop of the year!

(spoken)

[DORSEY]
Jim Conley
I got a piece of paper here says you spent a little time on the chain gang

[CONLEY]
That right?

[DORSEY]
Twice, according to this
And the second time it says here you were out with the road gang
And you just up and disappeared

[CONLEY]
Well, you know, my time was about up

[DORSEY]
Really? I think you had a few more months to serve
You know what that makes you, don't you?

[CONLEY]
Lucky?

[DORSEY]
I was going to say an escaped convict. Now, what should we do about that?

[CONLEY]
What was that you was askin' me about Mr Frank?

(sung, the following two parts overlap)

[REPORTERS & CRAIG]
Accordin' to reports obtained ex-
Clusively by this reporter
Mr. Leo Frank has been in-
Dicted on the charge of murder!
Prosecutor Dorsey states the
Trial will begin in the
Atlanta County Courthouse
Only one month from today!
Mrs Frank, the Suspect's wife
Has still not spoken to reporters!
What's the word from Mrs Frank?
What's the word from Mrs Frank?
Mrs Frank! Mrs Frank!

[ENSEMBLE]
Extra! Extra! Leo Frank indicted!
Trial set for a month from now!
Prosecutor Dorsey will|
Try the case himself, he says!
Luther Rosser will represent
Mr Frank in the fight of his life!
Dorsey promises surprise witnesses
And a quick finish!
Mrs Frank, the Suspect's wife
Has still not spoken to reporters!
What's the word from Mrs Frank?
What's the word from Mrs Frank?
Mrs Frank! Mrs Frank!

[LUCILLE]
Let me alone! Please! Let me alone!
