Jill Haworth - Cabaret

rate me

What good is sitting alone in your room?<br />

Come hear the music play<br />

Life is a cabaret, old chum<br />

Come to the cabaret<br />

<br />

Put down the knitting<br />

The book and the broom<br />

Time for a holiday<br />

Life is cabaret, old chum<br />

Come to the cabaret<br />

<br />

Come taste the wine<br />

Come hear the band<br />

Come blow your horn<br />

Start celebrating<br />

Right this way<br />

Your table's waiting<br />

<br />

No use permitting<br />

Poem prophet of doom<br />

To wipe every smile away<br />

Come hear the music play<br />

Life is a cabaret, old chum<br />

Come to the cabaret!<br />

<br />

I used to have a girlfriend<br />

known as Elsie<br />

With whom I shared<br />

Four sordid rooms in Chelsea<br />

<br />

She wasn't what you'd call<br />

A blushing flower<br />

As a matter of fact<br />

She rented by the hour<br />

<br />

The day she died the neighbors<br />

Came to snicker<br />

Well, that's what comes<br />

From to much pills and liquor<br />

<br />

But when I saw her laid out like a queen<br />

She was the happiest corpse<br />

I'd ever seen<br />

<br />

I think of Elsie to this very day<br />

I'd remember, how'd she turn to me and say<br />

What good is sitting alone in your room?<br />

Come hear the music play<br />

Life is a cabaret, old chum<br />

Come to the cabaret<br />

<br />

And as for me<br />

I made up my mind back in Chelsea<br />

When I go, I'm going like Elsie<br />

<br />

Start by admitting<br />

From cradle to tomb<br />

Isn't that long a stay?<br />

Life is a cabaret, old chum<br />

Only a cabaret, old chum<br />

And I love a cabaret!
