"There's No Business Like Show Business"

"There's No Business Like Show Business"



The butcher, the baker, the grocer, the clerk
Are secretly unhappy men because
The butcher, the baker, the grocer, the clerk
Get paid for what they do but no applause
They'd gladly bid their dreary jobs goodbye
For anything theatrical and why

There's no business like show business
Like no business I know
Everything about it is appealing
Everything the traffic will allow
Nowhere could you get that happy feeling
When you are stealing that extra bow

There's no people like show people
They smile when they're low
Even with a turkey that you know will fold
You may be stranded out in the cold
Still you wouldn't change it for a sack of gold
Let's go on with the show

The costumes, the scenery, the makeup, the props
The audience that lifts you when you're down
The headaches, the heartaches, the backaches, the flops
The sheriff that escorts you out of town
The opening when your heart beats like a drum
The closing when the customers won't come

There's no business like show business
Like no business I know
You get word the show has started
That your favorite uncle died at dawn
Top of that your pa and ma have parted
You're broken hearted but you go on

There's no people like show people
They never ever run out of dough
Yesterday they told you you would not go far
That night you opened and there you are
Next day on your dressing room they hung a star
Let's go on with the show

"This Christmas"

"This Christmas"



Hang all the mistletoe
I'm gonna get to know you better
This Christmas
And as we trim the tree
How much fun it's gonna be together
This Christmas

Fireside is blazing bright
We're caroling through the night
And this Christmas will be
A very special Christmas for me

Presents and cards are here
My world is filled with cheer and you
This Christmas
And as I look around
Your eyes outshine the town, they do
This Christmas

Fireside is blazing bright
We're caroling through the night
And this Christmas will be
A very special Christmas for me

"This Time The Dream's On Me"

"This Time The Dream's On Me"



Somewhere, someday
We'll be close together, wait and see
Oh, by the way, this time the dream's on me

You'll take my hand
And you'll look at me adoringly
But as things stand, this time the dream's on me

It would be fun to be certain that I'm the one
To know that I at least supply the shoulder you cry upon
To see you through till you're everything you want to be
It can't be true, but this time the dream's on me

"Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Old Oak Tree"

"Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Old Oak Tree"



I'm coming home I've done my time
And I have to know what is or isn't mine
If you received my letter
Telling you I'd soon be free
Then you'd know just what to do
If you still want me
If you still want me

Oh tie a yellow ribbon
'Round the old oak tree
It's been three long years
Do you still want me
If I don't see a yellow ribbon
'Round the old oak tree
I'll stay on the bus, forget about us
Put the blame on me
If I don't see a yellow ribbon
'Round the old oak tree

Bus driver please look for me
'Cause I couldn't bare to see what I might see
I'm really still in prison
And my love she holds the key
A simple yellow ribbon's all I need to set me free
I wrote and told her please

Oh tie a yellow ribbon
'Round the old oak tree
It's been three long years
Do you still want me
If I don't see a yellow ribbon
'Round the old oak tree
I'll stay on the bus, forget about us
Put the blame on me
If I don't see a yellow ribbon
'Round the old oak tree

Now the whole damn bus is cheering
And I can't believe I see
A hundred yellow ribbons
'Round the old, the old oak tree

Tie a ribbon 'round the old oak tree
Tie a ribbon 'round the old oak tree
Tie a ribbon 'round the old oak tree
Tie a ribbon 'round the old oak tree

Tie a ribbon 'round the old oak tree
Tie a ribbon 'round the old oak tree
Tie a ribbon 'round the old oak tree
Tie a ribbon 'round the old oak tree

"Time After Time"

"Time After Time"



I only know what I know
The passing years will show
You've kept my love so young, so new
And time after time
I tell myself that
I'm so lucky to be loving you

"Time To Go"

"Time To Go"


The curtain goes up
As the lights go dim
The opening act takes the stage
The applause is polite,
Tthey’re not waiting for him
Everybody knows he’s at least twice their age

Took him 2 days to get there
His eyes tired and red
His gear in the back of his way

His car is his dressing room
Office and bed
But at least he got him up here

Sings from his heart
And keeps from cryin
He knows it’s a young man’s game
He’s makin the reelin while the crowd’s all dyin to hear
The headliner’s name

And as he continues to play
He can hear the audience say

[Chorus:]
It’s time to go
This ain’t no variety show
We’re sure you was someone
Someone with note
But buddy, it’s time to go

As he packs his things he can hear from the winds
The audience singing along
They know every word
They know every line
And he wonders will he get one

As the stage door closes, goodbye
He sings what’s been on his mind

[Chorus:]
It’s time to go
This ain’t no variety show
We’re sure you was someone
Someone with note
But buddy, it’s time to go

Oh buddy, it’s time to go

"To Love The Language"

"To Love The Language"



I is just what I was
And am ain't who I be
To love the language
You got to be born
On the banks of the Mississippi

Ax' ya "x" what talks in tongues
Say: "never mo' neither me"
To love the language
You got to be born
On the banks of the Mississippi

Stayin by my mama's
In slippers and pajamas
Where there's always somethin good to eat
Bettin strawberries
Honey and cherries
And pecan-pies oh so sweet

With a dew-rag on my brow
Jasmine, wysteria and fleur-de-lis
To love the language
You got to be born
On the banks of the Mississippi

If you won't work fo' a livin
And live life leisurely
Pull up a screen po-ch
Flop out in a rockin chair
To love the language
You got to be born
On the banks of the Mississippi

"To See You"

"To See You"



When was I supposed to make my entrance
How was I to know I had a chance
Now here's a guy who really thought he had it all
My heart was holding up the wall so I could dance

The last of my romances has concluded
Wars I've lost and loved have thus been fair
The battle scars I've gained have all alluded
To a decorated soldier of despair

Baby I just had to see you
Your face, your smile
Baby I just had to see you
Just for a while

I ran from love to love and lied with laughter
Not knowing that at some point I'd collide
With someone who would be my ever after
And happily would stay here by my side

Baby I just had to see you
Your face, your smile
Baby I just had to see you
Just for a while

"Trouble"

"Trouble"



La Rouge lies awake at night
Doesn't sleep for days
Guess he's carryin somethin
The pillows can't take away
I feel just like him
'Cept for me it's double
Baby I got you, and you're

Trouble
Trouble
I used to not need nothin
Now trouble is all I need

Well Tessie loves excitement
Can make a dull moment a thrill
She does whatever she wants
Then puts it on my bill
But that ain't so expensive
Got it covered in my sleep
See dawlin' I got you
And baby you're

Trouble
Trouble
I used to not need nothin
Now trouble is all I need

I wouldn't bet against myself
In a poker game
Or build a house
In a hurricane
And lose everything I had
And spend the rest of my life gone mad
In a way it would be a relief
It really wouldn't be so bad
See dawlin' I got you and baby you're

Trouble
Trouble
I used to not need nothin
I used to not need nothin
I used to not need nothin
Now trouble is all I need

"Way Down Yonder In New Orleans"

"Way Down Yonder In New Orleans"



Way down yonder in New Orleans
In the land of the dreamy scenes
It's a garden of Eden...you know what I mean

Creole babies with lovin' eyes
Softly whisper their tender sighs
Stop..ya bet your life you'll linger there...a little while
Stop....won't you give your lady fair...a little smile

It's the heaven right here on earth
All the beautiful queens
Way down yonder in New...Orleans

Stop....won't you give your lady fair...a little smile
Stop....give lady fair...a little smile
Oh!
It's the heaven right here on earth
All the beautiful queens,
Look out!
Way down yonder in New Orleans
