Cabaret

  • What good is sitting alone
  • In your room?
  • Come hear the music play.
  • Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
  • Come to the Cabaret.
  • Put down the knitting,
  • The book and the broom.
  • Time for a holiday.
  • Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
  • Come to the Cabaret.
  • Come taste the wine,
  • COme hear the band.
  • Come blow a horn,
  • Start celebrating;
  • Right this way,
  • Your table’s waiting.
  • No use permitting
  • Some prophet of doom
  • To wipe every smile away.
  • Come hear the music play.
  • Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
  • Come to the Cabaret!
  • I used to have a girlfriend
  • Known as Elsie,
  • With whom I shared
  • Four sordid rooms in Chelsea
  • She wasn’t waht you’d call
  • A blushing flower…
  • As a matter of fact
  • She rented by the hour.
  • The day she died the neighbors
  • Came to snicker:
  • “Well, that’s what comes
  • From too much pills and liquor.”
  • But when I saw her laid out like a Queen,
  • She was the happiest… corpse…
  • I’d ever seen.
  • I think of Elsie to this very day.
  • I remember how she’d turn to me and say:
  • “What good is sitting alone
  • In you room?
  • Come hear the music play.
  • Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
  • Come to the Cabaret.
  • Put down the knitting,
  • The book and the broom.
  • Time for a holiday.
  • Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
  • Come to the Cabaret.”
  • And as for me,
  • I made my mind up, back in Chelsea,
  • When I go, I’m going like Elsie.
  • Start by admitting,
  • From cradle to tomb
  • Isn’t that a long a stay.
  • Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
  • Only a Cabarert, old chum
  • And I love a Cabaret.
