Cabaret - Don't Tell Mama

rate me

[EMCEE]

And now, meine Damen und Herren... Mesdames et

Messieurs... Ladies and Gentlemen- The Kit Kat Klub

is proud to present a most talented young lady from

England. Yes- England! I give you- and don't forget

to give her back when you're finished with her- the

toast of Mayfair... Fraulein Sally Bowles!!

[SALLY]

Mama

Thinks I'm living in a convent,

A secluded little convent

In the southern part of France.

Mama

Doesn't even have an inkling

That I'm working in a Nightclub

In a pair of Lacy pants.

So please, sir.

If you run into my Mama,

Don't reveal my indiscretion,

Give a working girl a chance.

Hush up,

Don't tell Mama,

Shush up,

Don't tell Mama...

Don't tell Mama,

Whatever you do.

If you had a secret,

You bet I would keep it.

I would never tell on you.

I'm breaking every promise

That I gave her,

So won't you kindly do a girl

A great big favor?

And please, my sweet patater,

Keep this from the Mater,

Though my dance

Is not against the law.

You can tell my Papa, that's all right,

'Cause he comes in here every night,

But don't tell Mama what you saw!

[ALL]

Mama

Thinks I'm on a tour of Europe,

With a couple of my school chums

And a lady chaperone.

Mama

Doesn't even have an inling

That I left them all in Antwerp

And I'm touring on my own.

So please, Sir

If you run into my Mama

Don't reveal my indiscretion.

[SALLY]

Just leave well enough alone.

Hush up,

[ALL]

Don't tell Mama.

[SALLY]

Shush up,

[ALL]

Don't tell Mama;

Don't tell Mama

Whatever you do.

[SALLY]

If you had a secret,

You bet I would keep it.

[ALL]

I would never tell on you.

You wouldn't want to get me

In a pickle,

[SALLY]

And have her go and cut me off

Without a nickle.

[ALL]

So let's trust one another,

Keep this from my mother,

Though I'm still as pure as mountain snow.

[SALLY]

You can tell my Uncle

Here and now

'Cause he's my agent anyhow,

[KIT KAT GIRLS]

But don't tell Mama what you know.

[SALLY]

You can tell my brother,

That ain't grim

'Cause if her *he*squeals on me

I'll squeal on him,

[ALL]

But don't tell Mama, bitte

Don't tell Mama, please, Sir.

Don't tell Mama, what you know.

[GIRLS]

Sssh!

Sssh!

[SALLY]

If you see my, Mummy,

Mum's the word!
