There's No Business Like Show Business Lyrics

 

The cowboys the wrestlers the tumblers the clowns

The roustabouts that move the show at dawn

 

The music the spotlights the people the towns

Your baggage with the labels pasted on

 

The sawdust and the horses and the smell

 

The towel you've taken from the last hotel

 

There's no business like show business

Like no business I know

 

Everything about it is appealing

 

Everything the traffic will allow

 

No where could you have that happy feeling

 

When you aren't 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 opened 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 escorts you out of town

 

The opening when your heart beats like a drum

 

The closing when the customers won't come

 

There's no business like show business

If you tell me it's so

 

Traveling through the country is so thrilling

 

Standing out in front on opening nights

 

Smiling as you watch the benches filling

 

And see your billing up there in lights

 

There's no people like show people

They smile when they are low

 

Even with a turkey that you know will fold

 

You may be stranded out in the cold

 

Still you wouldn't trade it for a sack o gold

Let's go on with the show

 

Let's go on with the show

There's No Business Like Show Business - Betty Hutton
