The minute you walked in the joint
I could tell you were a man of distinction
A real big spender

Good looking
So refined
Wouldn't you like to know
What's going on in my mind?

So let me get right to the point
I don't pop my cork for every guy I see

Hey, big spender
Spend a little time with me!


  • This song is used in two Glee episodes: In Season One's "Dream On," as a woman's audition song for Les Misérables, and as Sugar Motta's (Vanessa Lengies) audition song for New Directions in Season Three's "The Purple Piano Project."
  • This is the first Last Chance Performance to be from a musical.
