The world of bright lights, Of fortune and fame, Where everybody struggles, Tryin' to make themselves a name.

Oh, It's a world full of promises, That sometimes don't ever come true. It's an old, old business, Such a cold, cold business. It's like no business I know. There ain't no business like show, show business. It's like no, no business I know. There's a world of big dreams, Of laughter and tears, Where sometimes your fame, Is just a ????? on a ????? Oh, oh, It's a world of promises, That sometimes don't ever come true, now. And it's a rough, rough business. Such a tough, tough business. But it's my business, it's my life. Your business, That's what I'm talkin' about. Show business, That's what I'm talkin' about. Today you're nobody, Tomorrow a star. The day after that, Nobody knows who you are. There's an in-betweenin', And behind-the-scene'in', and They hardly leave you cent. And there's them good days, And there's some bad, bady days, Where you hardly pay your rent. Woah oh. But it's a world of music, That somehow gets under your skin. Oh yeah, There ain't no, no business, Like show, show business. It's like no business, That I know. There ain't no business, Like show, show business. I tell there ain't no business like it, I know. Talkin' 'bout show business! Talkin' 'bout.... [fade]
