"The Big House" is a song from the 2014 film, Muppets Most Wanted which was performed by Nadya (Tina Fey) with a Maximum Security Prisoner (Josh Groban). The film's soundtrack features a demo version of the song as a bonus track sung by Bret McKenzie. It is one of the few original songs on the soundtrack that is presented in its entirety in the film. Due to having a celebrity take part, the part of the Maximum Security Prisoner stays in English in every dub of this movie.

Lyrics

Nadya (spoken): 
Hit it boys
This is Russia’s premier state funded hotel
We’re very proud of our eclectic clientele
Excellence in service since 1932
Don’t believe what you read in the online reviews

It’s the Big House
The perfect getaway
Welcome into the Big House
You’ll never get away
It’s no Hilton or no Hyatt
But you will have a riot
So please enjoy your stay

Here’s the dining room, the menu is minimal
What the cook does to the food is criminal
Pull up a seat frog, grab yourself a stool
May I recommend you try our famous gruel

In the Big House
You’ll never be alone
Life ain’t bad in the Big House
No, froggy, no
Check out after ten
Or eleven years
Make yourself at home

Accommodation is far superior
Than anything else you will find in Siberia
Let me know if there’s anything you need
Everything is free, money back guaranteed

Maximum Security Prisoner:
In the Big House, you will not survive
When you arrive in the Big House, run for your life!

Nadya:
It’s the Big House
The perfect getaway
Welcome into the Big House
You’ll never get away
For your security
I’ll keep the only key
Now please enjoy your stay

Follow me and I'll show you to your room
An executive twin suite with a view
All amenities are free of charge
You can see the stars through the many bars

In the Big House
You'll never be alone
Life ain't bad in the Big House
No, froggy, no
Check out after ten
Or eleven years
Your home away from home

Here's the dining room since 1932
A five-star joint
Don't believe the online reviews
Pull up a seat, boy
Grab yourself a stool
May I recommend you try our famous gruel

In the Big House
You'll never be alone
Life ain't bad in the Big House
No, froggy, no
You'll enjoy your stay
The perfect hideaway
Your home away from home

Accommodation here is far superior
Than anything else you will find in Siberia
Every dime has a silver lining
When you're inside, you've got the time to find it

In the Big House
You're never on your own
Life ain't bad in the Big House
No, froggy, no
Ooh, livin' life in the Big House
You'll never be alone
Life ain't bad in the Big House
No, froggy, no
You'll enjoy your stay
All expenses paid
Your home away from home
