Irving Berlin

Irving Berlin - There's No Business Like Show Business

rate me

There's no business like show business like no business I know

Everything about it is appealingeverything that traffic will allow

Nowhere could you get that happy feeling when you are stealing that extra bow

There's no people like show peoplethey smile when they are low

Even with a turkey that you know will foldyou may be stranded out in the cold

Still you wouldn't change it for a sack of goldlet's go on with the show

The butcherthe bakerthe grocerthe clerk

Are secretly unhappy men because

The butcherthe bakerthe grocerthe 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 and I tell you it's so

Traveling through the country is so thrillingstanding out in front on opening nights

Smiling as you watch the theater fillingand there's your billing out there in lights

There's no people like show peoplethey smile when they are low

Angels come from everywhere with lots of jackand when you lose itthere's no attack

Where could you get money that you don't give back? let's go on with the show

(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 thatyour pa and ma have partedyou're broken-heartedbut you go on

(there's no people like show peoplethey smile when they are low)

Yesterday they told you you would not go farthat night you open and there you are

Next day on your dressing room they've hung a starlet's go on with the show!!
