CABARET
Kander/Webb
(3.23)

What good is sitting alone in your room
Come hear the music play - that's the music
Life is a cabaret, ol' chum
Come on, ah come to the cabaret

Put down that knitting, put down the book
Put down that broom
Time for a holiday
Life is a cabaret, ol' chum
Ah come on, come on, come to the cabar-ar-et

Come taste the wine, come over here and hear the band
Come on and blow your horn, start celebrating
Right this way your table's waiting

There's no use permitting some prophet of doom
Oh, wipe every smile away, oh yeah
Life is a cabaret, my friend
Ah come on, come on, come to the cabaret

Put down that knitting, put down that book
Put down that broom as well
It is time for a holiday right now-ow
Because I'm sayin' life is a cabaret, my very best friend
Co-ome to the cabaret

Come taste the wine, come hear-ear the band
Come blow your horn, start celebrating
Right this way your table's waiting
Yeah

Start by admitting from cradle to tomb
It isn't that far away
Life is a cabaret, my friend
Only a cabaret, my very best friend
Life is a cabaret, ol' chum
Come to the cabaret, cabaret...
Come, the cabaret, let's have some fun, cabaret
Come to the cabaret

What use is sitting alone in your room

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A FOOL
Bonfa/Sigman
(3:16)

A day in the life of a fool
A-a sad and a long lonely-y day
I walk the avenue
And hope I'll run into The welcome sight of you
Comin' my way

I stop just across from your door
But you're not alone any more
So back, back to my room
And there in the gloom
I-I cry tears of good bye-ye-ye

Till you come back to me
That's the way it will be
Everyday in the life of a fool

I stop just across from your door
But you're not at home any more-ore-ore
So back, so back to my roo-oom
And there in the gloom
I-I cry tears of good bye-ye

Till you come back to me
That's the way it will be
Everyday in the life...
Of a fool...

SUMMERTIME
George & Ira Gershwin
(4:12)

Summertime, and the livin' i-is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton i-is high
Your-our-our-our daddy is so rich
And you mum, she's good lookin'
So-o-o hush little baby
Don't you ever let me see you cry again

One of these mornings
You're gonna rise up singin'
And you're gonna spread your wings
And take to the sky
But till that beautiful morning
There ain't nothin' gonna hold you
With your daddy and mummy sta-andin' by
Yeah

Your-our da-addy is rich, yeah
Oh-oh-oh but your mu-um, she's good lookin'
So hush little baby
Do-o-on't you cry

Mmm, summertime, and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Your-our-our-our da-addy is rich
And your mum, she's good lookin'
So-o-o hush little baby
Don't you ever let me see you cry again

Summertime, and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high-igh-igh
Your-our-our-our da-addy is rich
And your mum, she's good lookin'
So-o-o hush little baby
Do-o-o-on't you cry

Summertime, summertime, summertime
In the summerti-i-ime

YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE
Rogers/Hammerstein
(3:21)

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of a storm is a golden sky
And the sweet silver sun of the night

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams
Be tossed and blown

Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of a storm is a golden sky
And the sweet silver sun of the night

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams
Be tossed and blown

Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
