Liza Minnelli

Liza Minnelli - Cabaret

rate me

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.

It's 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.

What good's admitting

Some prophet of doom

To wipe every smile away.

Life is a cabaret, old chum,

So come to the cabaret!

I used to have this girlfriend,

Known as Elsie,

With whom I shared,

Four sordid rooms in Chelsea.

She wasn't what you'd call,

A blushing flower...

As a matter of fact,

She rented by the hour.

The day she died the neighbours

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, all alone in you room?

Come hear the music play.

Life is a cabaret, old chum,

Come to the cabaret.

And as for me,

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

It isn't that a long a stay.

Life is a cabaret, old chum,

It's only a cabaret, old chum

And I love a cabaret.<br />
