Stephen Lynch The Ballad Of Scarface Lyrics

Do you know Tony Montana

Rode a boat here from Havana

Scar from eating pussy lines his face

Finds a day job washing dishes

Hates his life, he only wishes

Some day in this world to find his place

And he has a scheme

For his own drug regime

Dream, Scarface, dream

Hired by the gangster Omar

He climbs the ranks, he’s getting so far

Selling guns and drugs out in the streets

Soon he works for Frank, the main boss

Doing hits and dodging chainsaws

Getting rich and living life so sweet

But he craves romance

In his disco pants

Dance, Scarface, dance

See, Tony wants to rule the world

So he kills Frank and steals his girl

She’ll give him the son he’s never had

Alas, her womb is so polluted

From the powder she has tooted

There’ll be no son and that makes Tony sad

As he looks to the sky

Hear his plaintive cry

Fly, pelican, fly

Now he starts to get too high

On his own supply

Thinking he’s the only game in town

And his enemies decide

On a plot of regicide

It’s time for the king to lose his crown

Scarface must go down

Oh, Tony’s killers soon surround him

Sensing death has finally found him

He aims his gun, prepared to do his part

And as he shouts “It’s not the end,

say hello to my little friend!”

Assassins’ bullets pierce his fragile heart

It’s a tragic goodbye

He had flown so high

Cuban butterfly

Die, Scarface, die
