RENT’s Tango: Maureen Lyrics

MARK The lot. Where a stage is partially set up JOANNE Mark?


JOANNE I Told Her Not To Call You

MARK That’s Maureen But Can I Help Since I’m Here

JOANNE I Hired An Engineer …

MARK Great! Well, Nice To Have Met You

JOANNE Wait! She’s Three Hours Late

The Samples Wont Delay But The Cable –

MARK There’s Another Way Say Something – Anything

JOANNE Test – On, Two Three …

MARK Anything But That

JOANNE This Is Weird

MARK It’s Weird

JOANNE Very Weird

MARK Fuckin’ Weird

JOANNE I’m So Mad That I Don’t Know What To Do Fighting With Microphones Freezing Down To My Bones And To Top It All Off I’m With You

MARK Feel Like Going Insane? Got A Fire In Your Brain? And Your Thinking Of Drinking Gasoline?

JOANNE As A Matter Of Fact —

MARK Honey, I Know This Act It’s Called The ‘Tango Maureen’

The Tango Maureen It’s A Dark, Dizzy Merry-Go-Round As She Keeps You Dangling

JOANNE You’re Wrong

MARK Your Heart She Is Mangling

JOANNE It’s Different With Me

MARK And You Toss And You Turn ‘Cause Her Cold Eyes Can Burn Yet You Yearn And You Churn And Rebound

JOANNE I Think I Know What You Mean

BOTH The Tango Maureen

MARK Has She Ever Pouted Her Lips And Called You ‘Pookie’


MARK Have You Ever Doubted A Kiss Or Two?

JOANNE This Is Spooky Did You Swoon When She Walked Through The Door?

MARK Every Time – So Be Cautious

JOANNE Did She Moon Over Other Boys–?

See Also  Ami Charlize

MARK More Than Moon–

JOANNE I’m Getting Nauseous

(They dance)

MARK It’s hard to do this backwards

JOANNE You should try it in heels!

She Cheated

MARK She Cheated

JOANNE Maureen Cheated

MARK Fuckin’ Cheated

JOANNE I’m Defeated I Should Give Up Right Now

MARK Gotta Look On The Bright Side With All Of Your Might

JOANNE I’d Fall For Her Still Anyhow

BOTH When Your Dancing Her Dance You Don’t Stand A Chance Her Grip Of Romance Makes You Fall

MARK So You Think, ‘Might As Well’

JOANNE “Dance A Tango To Hell”

BOTH ‘At Least I’ll Have Tangoed At All’

The Tango Maureen Gotta Dance Til Your Diva Is Through You Pretend To Believe Her Cause In The End – You Can’t Leave Her

But The End It Will Come Still You Have To Play Dumb Til You’re Glum And You Bum And Turn Blue

MARK Why Do We Love When She’s Mean?

JOANNE And She Can Be So Obscene

MARK Try The Mike

JOANNE My Maureen (een, een, een…)

MARK Patched


MARK You Know – I Feel Great Now!

JOANNE I Fell Lousy

BOTH The Tango: Maureen!
