In 1984, #EthelMerman died.  Here is a song you won’t to be able to resist singing along with #singing;#feelgood

There’s no business like show business

15-2 Chorus Line

There’s no business like show business
Like no business I know
Everything about it is appealing
Everything that traffic will allow
Nowhere could you get that happy feeling
When you are stealing that extra bowThere’s no people like show people
They smile when they are low
Yesterday they told you you would not go far
That night you open and there you are
Next day on your dressing room
They’ve hung a star
Let’s go, on with the showThe costumes, the scenary, the make-up, 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 don’t come

There’s no business like show business
Like no business I know
You get word before 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 smile when they are 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
Let’s go on with the show

15-2 Ethel Merman No business like show business
