The Lure

After assuring the family that they won't eat them up, the winsome sirens are recruited to join the Figs and Dates band at a neon-lit Warsaw dance club.

There were seven girls on

The Albatross

But it's you who left

this sadness in my head

You were seventeen

when we were dating

It was in Augustw

that I first laid eyes on you

Your name was Beata

It's a beautiful name, my love

Help us come ashore

There's no need to fear

We won't eat you, my dear

Eat you, eat you...


What are you doing?

Hi there.

- What's that smell?

- Beats me, boss. I got a cold.

Then stay home

and don't spread it around.

Mrs. Rockets, what's that smell?

We're cooking in here, boss.

Actually they're a friend's kids.

And this is a nightclub

with a liquor license

and adult entertainment.

And this room is

for authorized staff only.

Beat it, you two.


Excuse me, boss.

Here you go.

Take your clothes off.


Sit down.

Smooth as Barbie dolls.

This is great!

I have to say

you really got me this time.

Are those real?

Check for yourself.

Sure they won't bite?

They're still young.

So what do you suggest?

The slit in the tail?

Where's it supposed to be?

There it is!

Thing is, they smell fishy.

It's not that bad.

And if they dry out and change back,

just splash some water on them.

No offense, but I was wondering...

where'd you learn to speak Polish?

On the beach in Bulgaria.

That's great.

Just great.

Give it up for Miss Muffet

and "The Banana Song"!

Swinging in the sun

And thinking lazy thoughts

There's a noise up in the sky

I slowly raise my eyes

I see a jet full of businesspeople

Packed to capacity

While down here

there's just a carefree song

And the lapping of the sea

It's the banana song

It'll be all right...

I just splashed water on them.

I didn't hurt them.

Hold on.

- Breadstick?

- Please!

What are your names?

- I'm Golden.

- And I'm Silver.

"Imgolden," "Andimsilver."

Very nice.

They can do

backup vocals and strip.

Here's an advance.

Now get them

something decent to wear.

I'm new to the city

I wanted to put

my best foot forward

Change what I can change

and get their attention

A mention, a nod

I could be soaring

But life's gross and boring

I walk through the city

Cars honking, polluting

New sights all around me

The lights, sounds, and faces

never cease to astound me

Bright shiny neon

Is saying this is

the best street to be on

Hustle and bustle

Buses, people, and cars

So exciting we're not leaving

We like it here

The city will tell us

what it is we lack

The city will tell us

what is it we lack

We've chosen to live here

We want things to be clear

The city will tell us

What is it we lack

There's not a dull minute

Lots of people live in it

The tastes, smells, and pleasures

The garbage, the treasures

Pigeons and sirens

Horns and pylons

Streets hot and exciting

Parks cool and inviting

The city will tell us

What it is we lack

It knows for a fact

what it is we lack

We've chosen to live here

We want things to be clear

Hands made filthy by dirty deeds

Can't stand to watch it go to seed

Want to hang out here a while

before swimming to America?



what if you fall in love?

Don't be silly.

Would you eat him?


I want you to cover up a bit

when you're singing.

Why that?

Give 'em something

to look forward to.

Give it 100%...

But not 200% or 300%.

- Knock 'em dead, Krysia.

- Nervous, girls?

Just have fun

and let the rest happen.

Follow me.

Don't touch me.

The next act is Figs 'n' Dates...

featuring two sisters...

two little mermaids.

Let's hear it

for Silver and Golden!

Nice, huh?

You were my heart's beating

My life and spring so fleeting

My dreams before and after
