CABARET


 

Life is a Cabaret

Cabaret

 

What good is sitting
alone in your room?
Come hear the music play.
Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
Come to the Cabaret.
Put down the knitting,
The book and the broom.
It’s time for a holiday.
Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
Come to the Cabaret.
Come taste the wine,
Come hear the band.
Come blow your horn,
Start celebrating;
Right this way,
Your table’s waiting.

No use permitting
Some prophet of doom
To wipe every smile away.
Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
So come to the Cabaret!

I used to have this girlfriend
Known as Elsie,
With whom I shared
Four sordid rooms in Chelsea
She wasn’t what you’d call
A blushing flower…
As a matter of fact
She rented by the hour.

The day she died the neighbours
Came to snicker:
“Well, that’s what comes
From too much pills and liquor.”
But when I saw her laid down like a Queen,
She was the happiest… corpse…
I’d ever seen.

I think of Elsie to this very day.
I remember how she’d turn to me and say:
“What good is sitting all alone
In you room?
Come hear the music play.
Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
Come to the Cabaret.”

And as for me, ah, and as for me
I made my mind up, back in Chelsea,
When I go, I’m going like Elsie.

Start by admitting,
From cradle to tomb
It isn’t that a long a stay.
Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
It’s only a Cabaret, old chum
And I love a Cabaret.

 

 

 

 

Maybe This Time

Cabaret

 

Maybe this time, i’ll be lucky
Maybe this time, he’ll stay
Maybe this time
For the first time
Love won’t hurry away

He will hold me fast
I’ll be home at last
Not a loser anymore
Like the last time
And the time before

Everybody loves a winner
So nobody loved me;
‘lady peaceful,’ ‘lady happy,’
That’s what i long to be
All the odds are in my favor
Something’s bound to begin
It’s got to happen, happen sometime
Maybe this time i’ll win

Mein Herr

Cabaret

[EMCEE]
Meine Damen und Herren. Mesdames et Messieurs,
Ladies and Gentlemen; it is almost midnight!
Husbands- you have only ten seconds in which to
lose your wives! Five- four- three- two- one!
Happy New Year!

[SALLY]
You have to understand the way I am,
Mein Herr.
A tiger is a tiger, not a lamb.
Mein Herr.
You’ll never turn the vinegar to jam,
Mein Herr.
But I do…
What I do…
When I’m through…
Then I’m through…
And I’m through…
Toodle-oo!
Bye-Bye, Mein Lieber Herr.
Farewell, mein Lieber Herr.
It was a fine affair,
But now it’s over.
And though I used to care,
I need the open air.
You’re better off without me,
Mein Herr.

 

Money

Cabaret

[EMCEE]
Money makes the world go around
The world go around
The world go around
Money makes the world go around
It makes the world go ‘round.

A mark, a yen, a buck, or a pound
A buck or a pound
A buck or a pound
Is all that makes the world go around,
That clinking clanking sound
Can make the world go ‘round.

[DANCE BREAK]

[EMCEE AND GIRLS (In Canon)]
If you haven’t any coal in the stove
And you freeze in the winter
And you curse on the wind
At your fate
When you haven’t any shoes
On your feet
And your coat’s thin as paper
And you look thirty pounds
Underweight.
When you go to get a word of advice
From the fat little pastor
He will tell you to love evermore.
But when hunger comes a rap,
Rat-a-tat, rat-a-tat at the window…

[GIRLS]
At the window…

[EMCEE (spoken)]
Who’s there?

[GIRLS (spoken)]
