Lyrics

There's no business like show business Like no business I know Everything about it is appealing Everything that traffic will allow Nowhere could you get that happy feeling When you are stealing that extra bow There's no people like show people They smile when they are low Yesterday they told you, you would not go far That night you open and there you are Next day on your dressing room they've hung a star Let's go on with the show! The costumes, the scenery, the makeup, the props The audience that lifts you when you're down The headaches, the heartaches, the backaches, the flops The sheriff who'll escort you out of town The opening when your heart beats like a drum The closing when the customers don't come 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 And top of that, your pa and ma have parted You're broken-hearted, but you go on There's no people like show people They smile when they are low Even with a turkey that you know has fold You may be stranded out in the cold But still you wouldn't change it for a sack of gold Let's go on with the show, let's go on with the show
