"Cell Block Tango" is a song from the 1975 musical Chicago, with music composed by John Kander and lyrics written by Fred Ebb. It features the female criminals singing about how they ended up in jail. The song was originally performed by Chita Rivera, with Candy Brown, Cheryl Clark, Graciela Daniele, Michon Peacock and Pamela Sousa. "He had it coming" is a refrain throughout the number, in which one prisoner describes how her man's gum-popping habit led her to end the nuisance: "I took a gun and fired two warning shots — into his head."
The song has been covered, or otherwise used, in several shows or videos. In the Glee episode "Choke", the song was covered by main characters Santana, Brittany, Mercedes, Sugar and Tina. Girls Generation's Hyoyeon popularized the song in South Korea after performing in the dance reality show "Hit the stage". Child actors in the Broadway production of The Secret Garden performed the number as part of a 1992 AIDS benefit in New York City.
