RIO

ACT TWO–SCENE FOUR

“CRUISIN”

Following the inside scene in the Rio Park Hotel.

 

John Hawthorne          Roberto, perhaps I am missing something, but for a truly beautiful

city,  there seems to be nothing but problems.

Roberto Sanna                        Oh no, Senior.  You have not seen the Rio I know.  Soon you will

see the Carnival, but every day there is a celebration.  Music,

laughter……it’s right outside our door.  Come,  let an expert of

of the Rio social scene give you a personal guided tour.

 

John Hawthorne smiles and sighs, as the two walk outside the hotel onto the strip.

 

Music begins in E

 

Roberto Sanna                        You see those guys in that car over there.  Those are my buddies,

driving one of hottest cars on the strip.  Check it out!  (singing)      

 

Verse 1                        Rolling down the windows, in a simonized old Ford

Drivin’ near the curbside, and hopin’ for a score

Hot time in the city, the chicks are lookin’ good

Revin’ up my engine, underneath the hood.

 

Segue                          If you’re playin’ the game boy,

then you gotta have moves–if you’re gonna go

Chorus                                    Cruisin’, Cruisin’ if you’re gonna go

Cruisin’, Cruisin’.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you loose

Kinda Funky when you’re doin’ the cruise.

 

Verse 2                        Boys are goin’ huntin’, in the jungle of the street

Crankin’ up the stereo, get down with the beat.

Rollin’ up the shirt sleeves, slickin’ down their hair

cigarettes and alcohol, whatever works is fair.

 

Segue                          If you’re playin’ the game boy,

then you gotta have moves–if you’re gonna go

Chorus                                    Cruisin’, Cruisin’ if you’re gonna go

Cruisin’, Cruisin’.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose

Just as long as you are doin’ the cruise.

 

 

Verse 3                        Sax solo

 

Just like on the TV, their act is super cool.

And each day I keep prayin’ I don’t come off like a fool.

 

Segue                          If you’re playin’ the game boy,

then you gotta have moves–if you’re gonna go

Chorus                                    Cruisin’, Cruisin’ if you’re gonna go

Cruisin’, Cruisin’.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you loose

Get’s so crazy when you’re doin’ the cruise.

 

Chorus                                    Cruisin’, Cruisin’ if you’re gonna go

Cruisin’, Cruisin’.

Cruisin’, Cruisin’ if you’re gonna go

Cruisin’, Cruisin’.

 

Cruisin’, Cruisin’ if you’re gonna go

Cruisin’, Cruisin’.

 

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose

Just as long as you are doin’ the cruise!

 

John                             (Sarcastically)       Roberto, you are one cool dude.  

 

Roberto                       I know….(looks at his watch)  OH NO! I was supposed to clean the bathrooms TEN minutes ago.  Senhor Ribiero is gonna have my hide!

 

John                             Don’t worry, Roberto, you can always moonlight as a tour guide.
