Quintet (Tonight)

This song is by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim and appears on the movie soundtrack West Side Story (1961).

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 'OK 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

Jets and sharks:
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 near
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

JETS:
The Jets are coming 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: We'll be backing you boy
ICE: Right
RIFF: You're gonna flat him good
ICE: Right

Maria:
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

Sharks:
We're gonna rock it tonight
We're gonna jazz it tonight
They're gonna get it tonight
Tonight

Anita:
Tonight,
Late tonight
We're gonna mix it tonight

Jets and sharks:
But they began it
They began it
They began it

Tony and maria:
Tonight 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...

Anita:
Tonight
Anita's gonna have her day
Bernardo's gonna have his way

Jets and sharks:
And we're the ones to stop'em once and for all
The Jets/The Sharks are gonna have their way
The Jets/The Sharks are gonna have their day
We're gonna rock it tonight

All:
...Tonight
