Show Business

I don't want your money

I don't need your love

Just lend me your ears

And I'll tell you what

I'm dreaming of

No fear of hunger

No threat of war

Just peace with my neighbour

That doesn't seem that much

to dream for

So why do we try

when the truth is so wrapped up in lies

so why do liars lie

and what do they gain?

There's no business like show business

It's no business I know

No people like show people

ain't no people I know

"Everything about it is appealing

Everything the public -traffic- will allow

Nowhere could you get that happy feeling

When you are stealing

That extra bow"
