Liza Minnelli - 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.
Time for a holiday.
Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
Come to the Cabaret.

Come taste the wine,
COme hear the band.
Come blow a horn,
Start celebrating;
Right this way,
Your table's waiting.

No use permitting
Some prophet of doom
To wipe every smile away.
Come hear the music play.
Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
Come to the Cabaret!

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

The day she died the neighbors
Came to snicker:
"Well, that's what comes
From too much pills and liquor."
But when I saw her laid out 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 alone
In you 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.
Time for a holiday.
Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
Come to the Cabaret."

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
Isn't that a long a stay.
Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
Only a Cabarert, old chum
And I love a Cabaret.

The Best of Times (from La Cage aux Folles)
By George Hearn & Gene Barry

The best of times is now,
What's left of summer but a faded rose,
The best of times is now,
as for tomorrow,
well, who knows, who knows, who knows.

So hold this moment fast,
and live and love as hard as you know how,
and make this moment last,
because the best of times is now, is now, is now.

Now, not some forgotten yesterday,
now, tomorrow is too far away.
So hold this moment fast,
and live and love as hard as you know how,
and make this moment last,
because the best of times is now
is now, is now, is now, is now...

(reprise)
The best of times is now,
What's left of summer but a faded rose,
The best of times is now,
as for tomorrow,
well, who knows, who knows, who knows.

So hold this moment fast,
and live and love as hard as you know how,
and make this moment last,
because the best of times is now, is now, is now.....
