West Side Story – Jet Song – Official Dance Scene – 50th Anniversary (HD)

-(SINGING) When you’re a Jet,
you’re a Jet all the way from your first cigarette to
your last dyin’ day. When you’re a Jet, let ’em do
what they can, you’ve got brothers around, you’re
a family man. You’re never alone, you’re
never disconnected. You’re home with your own. When Company’s expected,
you’re well protected. Then you are set with a capital
J, which you’ll never forget till they
cart you away. When you’re a Jet,
you stay a Jet. Now I know Tony like I know me,
and I guarantee you can count him in. -In, out, let’s get crackin’. -Where are you going
to find Bernardo? -It ain’t safe to go
into PR territory. -He’ll be at the dance
tonight at the gym. -Yeah, but the gym’s
neutral territory. -A-rab, I’m going to
make nice with him. I’m only going to
challenge him. -Great, Daddy-o. -So listen, everybody dress
up sweet and sharp. Meet Tony and me at
the dance at 10. And walk tall. -We always walk tall. -We’re Jets. -The greatest. -(SINGING) When you’re a Jet,
you’re the top cat in town. You’re the gold medal kid with
a heavyweight crown. -(SINGING) When you’re a Jet,
you’re the swingin’est thing. Little boy, you’re a man. Little man, you’re a king. -(SINGING TOGETHER) The
Jet’s are in gear. The cylinders are clickin’. The Sharks will steer clear,
’causes every Puerto Rican’s a lousy chicken. Here come the Jets like
a bat out of hell. Someone gets in our way, someone
don’t feel so well. Here come the Jets, little
world step aside. Better go underground. Better run, better hide.


I watched west side story expecting tough guys fighting and all they did was sing yuk..I kept watching take back what I say its actually pretty good.

I feel like the jets and sharks are much more fearsome than modern gangs because of the fact they fucking sing and dance

It shows good chemistry and synergy

Its one thing to have your ass kicked
Or to be shot

But imagine being shot
And then a gang making a flamboyant musical number out of it with some good dance choreography
