Springtime For Nicky In Babylon

BAILEY, PLANK, BUCK, and MARGE:
Humanity was having trouble
What a sad, sad story
Needed a new leader to restore
It's former glory
Where oh where was he?
Where could that man be?
We looked around and then we found
The prez of Romaneeeee!

And now it's …
Springtime for Nicky in Babylon!
The UN is happy and gay!
We're marching to a faster pace
Forfeiting the nukular race.
Springtime for Nicky in Babylon!
All those dead children: old news!
Springtime for Nicky in Babylon
Watch out New York
For all those tricksy Jews!
Springtime for Nicky in Babylon…

GIRLS:
Carpathia's causing a furor!
He's got the UN under his thumb

You can't say no to his demands
He's bound to conquer all the lands

HATTIE:
And even get into my pants!

GIRLS:

[NICKY steps out of the TV, bathed in red light]

NICKY:
I was just a paper pusher, no one less ambitious
Made a deal with Satan and he granted all my wishes
I do not need to beg and plead
I have gotten what I need:
Reporters trust me
So I must be
Off to spread my seed!
It is not any mystery
If it is politics or history
All you have got to know is
The Anti-Christ is showbiz!
The new world order is here
Make a great big sound
Everyone bow down, to me
Wonderful me!
And now it's

ALL:
Springtime for Nicky in Babylon!
