Some People Lyrics

Some People - Bette Midler (贝蒂·米德勒)

Some people can get a thrill

Knitting sweaters and setting still

Thats okay for some people

Who don't know theyre alive

 

Some people can thrive and bloom

Living life in the living room

Thats perfect for some people

Of one hundred and five

But I at least gotta try

When I think of all the sights that I gotta see

And all the places I gotta play

All the things that I gotta be at

Come on papa what do you say

Some people can be content

Playing bingo and paying rent

Thats peachy for some people

For some hum-drum people to be

But some people ain't me

 

I had a dream

A wonderful dream papa

All about june in the orpheum circuit

Gimme a chance and I know I can work it

I had a dream

Just as real as can be papa

There I was in mr orpheums office

And he was saying to me rose

Get yourself some new orchestrations

New routines and red velvet curtains

Get a feathered hat for the baby;

Photographs in front of the theatre

Get an agent and in jig time

Youll be being booked in the big time

Oh what a dream

A wonderful dream papa

And all that I need is eighty-eight bucks papa

Thats what he said papa

 

Only eighty-eight bucks

You ain't gettin eighty-eight cents from me rose

Well Ill get it someplace else but Ill get it and get my kids out

 

Goodbye to blueberry pie

 

Good ridance to all the socials I had to go to

All the lodges I had to play

All the shriners I said hello to

Hey l a I'm comin your way

Some people sit on their butts;

Got the dream yeah but not the guts

Thats living for some people

For some hum-drum people I suppose

 

Well they can stay and rot

 

But not rose
