CBTSantana.jpg
Album: Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Three
Rilascio: 01 maggio 2012
Di: Musical Chicago
Cover di: Ragazze delle Nuove Direzioni
Assolo: Mercedes, Sugar, Santana, Tina e Brittany
Luogo: The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion
Episodio: L'occasione di una vita
Cell Block Tango è una canzone tratta dal musical Chicago e cantata dalle ragazze delle Nuove Direzioni (con Rory e Mike come ballerini) nell'episodio L'occasione di una vita, il diciottesimo della terza stagione.

Shannon Beiste, la coach della squadra di football, è giù di morale per come l'ha trattata il marito. Per darle un po' di conforto, Roz Washington e Sue Sylvester ordinano alle ragazze di cantare una canzone focalizzata sul segno che gli uomini lasciano alle donne dopo aver distrutto i loro sentimenti. Santana, Sugar, Mercedes, Brittany e Tina cantano questa canzone, esibendosi con costumi provocanti. Nell'episodio la sequenza passa dall'esibizione delle ragazze ad alcune scene di Shannon a casa sua con il marito Cooter. Prima che termini la performance, Shannon lascia l'auditorium sul punto di piangere. Roz e Sue resteranno basite dal modo in cui le ragazze hanno mal interpretato l'assegnazione e soprattutto per l'effetto che hanno sortito sulla Coach Beiste.

Il testo della canzone si compone di tante storielle, quelle raccontate da ciascuna delle cantanti. Considerando che la versione originale rasentava i sette minuti abbondanti, la regia ha deciso di tagliare molti versetti cosicché pure la versione rilasciata del Glee Cast è lunga poco più di quattro minuti.

Tina (Brittany, Santana e Sugar):
(He had it coming) You know how people have these little habits (He had it coming)
That get you down like Bernie (He only had himself to blame)
Bernie, he likes to chew gum,(If you'd have been there)
No, not chew, Pop! (If you'd have seen it)
So I came home this one day and I'm really irritated (I betcha you would have done the same)
and I'm looking for a lil' bit of sympathy (He had it coming)
And there's Bernie lyin' on the couch, (He had it coming)
Drinkin' a beer and chewin' (He only had himself to blame)
No, not chewin', poppin' (If you'd have been there)
So, I said to him, I said (If you'd have seen it)
"You pop that gum one more time" (I betcha you would have done the same)
And he did (He had it coming)
So I took the shotgun off the wall (He had it coming)
And I fired two warning shots (He only had himself to blame)
Into his head

Tina e Santana insieme a Brittany e Sugar:
He had it coming, he had it coming
He only had himself to blame
If you'd have been there, if you'd have heard it
I betcha you would have done the same

Sugar (Brittany, Santana e Tina):
(He had it coming) I met Ezekiel Young from Salt Lake City (He had it coming)
About two years ago, and he told me he was single (He only had himself to blame)
And we hit it off right away (If you'd have been there)
So, we started living together (If you'd have seen it)
He'd go to work, he'd come home, I'd fix him a drink, and we'd have dinner. (I betcha you would have done the same)
(He had it coming) And then I found out, (He had it coming)
Single, he told me. Single, my butt! (He only had himself to blame)
Not only was he married, oh no, he had six wives (If you'd have been there, if you'd have seen it)
One of those Mormons, you know (I betcha you would have done the same)
So that night, when he came home from work (He had it coming)
I fixed him his drink (He had it coming)
As usual (He only had himself to blame)
You know, some guys just can't hold their arsenic

Tina con Santana (Brittany e Sugar):
He had it coming (Pop! Six! Squish!), he had it coming (Uh-Uh! Cicero! Lipschitz!)
He took a flower (Pop! Six! Squish!) in its prime (Uh-Uh! Cicero! Lipschitz!)
And then he used it (Pop!) and he abused it (Six!)
It was a murder (Squish! Uh-Uh! Cicero! Lipschitz) but not a crime

Santana:
Now, I'm standing in the kitchen
Carvin' up the chicken for dinner, mindin' my own business
In storms my husband Wilbur in a jealous rage
"You been doin' the milkman"
he says
He was crazy and he kept on screamin'
"You been doin' the milkman"
Then he ran into my knife
He ran into my knife ten times

Brittany e Sugar:
The dirty bum (Tina: bum, bum, bum, bum)
The dirty bum (Tina: bum, bum, bum, bum)

Sugar:
They had it comin', (Tina: They had it comin')

Santana:
They had it comin', (Sugar: They had it comin')

Tina:
They had it comin' all along,(Santana: They had it coming' all along)

Sugar:
'Cause if they used us (Santana: Cause if they used us)

Tina:
and they abused us (Sugar: And they abused us)

Santana, Sugar e Tina con Brittany:
How could they tell us that we were wrong?
Could you tell us that we were wrong?
