The Big Dollhouse

This song is by Harvey Fierstein and Linda Hart & Ensemble and appears on the musical soundtrack Hairspray (2002).

WOMEN
I gotta get out
I gotta get out
I gotta get out
How'd i get in this slammer
This cooler
This big dollhouse!

MATRON
Alright, ladies, welcome to the "Big Dollhouse!" For those of you new to the Baltimore Women's House of Detention, think of me as a mother... one who eats her young!

VELMA
Locked up with all these
Lowlife women

EDNA
And horizontal stripes
Ain't exactly slimmin'

AMBER
Is there anybody here
Who can dry clean my blouse?

MATRON
It's the maid's day off

ALL
In the big oollhouse

LI'L INEZ
Lady justice,
Where have you gone?

EDNA
Wilbur, check,
I think i left the iron on!

VELMA
Did you see corny laughing?
I could murder that louse!

MATRON
Honey, that'll getcha life

HOOKERS
In the big dollhouse

ALL
Big house!

VELMA
Locked up here in the pen

ALL
Big house!

AMBER
No phone!

EDNA
No food!

MOTORMOUTH
No men!

EDNA
I need a conjugal visit
From my loving spouse

MATRON
Honey, just drop the soap

ALL
In The Big Dollhouse

EDNA (to Matron)
Yoo hoo,
My stomach's a little sour
I haven't had food
In over an hour

MATRON
You just had a pizza,
Six burgers, a mouse!

ALL
There's no food left
In the big dollhouse

VELMA
Hey, matron,
I have got to complain

HOOKER
Mira, mami, don't i know you
From 1st and main?

VELMA
Eek, call my attorneys
Lipshitz and strauss
I gotta get sprung
From the big dollhouse

ALL
Big house!

LITTLE INEZ
No fair!

EDNA
No food!

PENNY
No fun!

ALL
Big house!

MOTORMOUTH
And our fight had just begun
'Cause it's freedom's flame
Velma'd like to douse
So we must break out of this

ALL
Big Dollhouse

TRACY
Penny, i can't take
All this waiting
I've lost my man
Plus, my hair's deflating!

PENNY
Well Tracy,
I hate to grumble or grouse

ALL (screaming at Tracy)
But it's your fault that we're in
This big dollhouse!!

BEATNIK CHICK
Hey, cool it, ladies
No need to shout
And don't ya got an old man
To bail you out?

VELMA
Ha! Her daddy's a pervert,
A loser, a souse!

EDNA (pawing Velma)
Well, it's iust us girls
In the big dollhouse

ALL
Big house!

AMBER
God, i'm too young to fry!

ALL
Big house!

EDNA
I'm busting out!

MOTORMOUTH
Girl, so am i!

ALL
Lady justice, hear my plea
'Cause the big dollhouse
The big dollhouse
The big dollhouse
Ain't big enough for me!
For me!
For me!

EDNA
For me!!!
