He goes to leave - Claps his hands and the music stops

RICO (CONT'D) 
You wanna buy a monkey? Lie down. 

ANNA AND KATY

RICO

Rico come back on stage holding his stomach

RICO
AAAAAAGGGGGHHH

KATY
What’s wrong Rico?

RICO
Oh I eat too much an drink too much and do too much dancing. Lying down. I  have the stomach ache of a lover.

ANNA
Well you only have yourself to blame

RICO
I can’t hear you. Come lie down beside me. i can only hear you when i am inside you.

ANNA
Go away you horrible little man

RICO
Ok I go. I sold the monkey by the way. I don’t suppose you want all his things. He has three top hats but I wouldn’t let him take them. Monkeys need discipline. And bananas. God I miss him.
