TONIGHT


JETS
The jets are gonna have their day
Tonight.
The Jets are gonna have their way
Tonight.
The Puerto Ricans grumble,
“Fair fight.”
But if they start a rumble,
We’ll rumble ‘em right.

SHARKS
We’re gonna hand ‘em a surprise
Tonight.
We’re gonna cut ‘em down to size
Tonight.
We said “okay, no rumpus,
No tricks.”
But just in case they jump us,
We’re ready to mix
Tonight!

JETS
We’re gonna rock it tonight,
We’re gonna jazz it up and have us
A ball.

SHARKS
They’re gonna get it tonight;
The more they turn it on, the
Harder they’ll fall!

JETS
Well, they began it --

SHARKS
Well, they began it --

BOTH GANGS
And we’re the ones to stop ‘em
Once and for all.
Tonight!

ANITA
Anita’s gonna get her kicks
Tonight.
We’ll have our private little mix
Tonight.
He’ll walk in hot and tired,
Poor dear.
Don’t matter if he’s tired,
As long as he’s here
Tonight!

TONY
Tonight, tonight
Won’t be just any night
Tonight there will be no morning star.
Tonight, tonight
I’ll see my love tonight,
And for us, stars will stop
Where they are.

MARIA
Today
The minutes seem like hours,
The hours go so slowly,
And still the sky is light…
Oh moon, grow bright,
And make this endless day endless night!

(During the remainder of the number, Tony and Maria will be heard singing together a reprise of the chorus they have just sung individually.)

JETS
The Jets are comin’ out on top
Tonight.
We’re gonna watch Bernardo drop
Tonight!
That Puerto Rican punk’ll
Go down
And when he’s hollered Uncle
We’ll tear up the town!

RIFF (to Ice)
We’ll be in back of you, boy.

ICE
Right!

RIFF
You’re gonna flatten him good.

ICE
Right!

RIFF
(with proper punch)
ONE, TWO, THREE.

ICE
(with proper punch)
ONE, TWO, THREE.

RIFF
And then we’ll have us a ball
Tonight.

BERNARDO AND SHARKS
We’re gonna jazz it tonight
They’re gonna get it tonight --
Tonight.
They began it -- they began it
And we’re the ones
To stop ‘em once and for all!
The Sharks are gonna have their way,
The Sharks are gonna have their day,
We’re gonna rock it tonight --
Tonight!

RIFF AND JETS
They began it.
They began it.
We’ll stop ‘em once and for all
The Jets are gonna have their day,
The Jets are gonna have their way,
We’re gonna rock it tonight.
Tonight
