There's No Business Like Show Business Lyrics

The Best of Broadway
Irving Berlin - There's No Business Like Show Business Lyrics

"There's No Business Like Show Business" is a song from Annie Get Your Gun the Broadway musical (1946). The music and lyrics was written by Irving Berlin.

There's no business like show business
Like no business I know
Everything about it is appealing
Everything that traffic will allow
Nowhere could you get that happy feeling
When you are 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 open 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'll escort you out of town
The opening when your heart beats like a drum
The closing when the customers don't come

There's no business like show business
Like no business I know
You get word before the show has started
That your favorite uncle died at dawn
And top of that, your pa and ma have parted
You're broken-hearted, but you go on

There's no people like show people
They smile when they are low
Even with a turkey that you know has fold
You may be stranded out in the cold
But still you wouldn't change it for a sack of gold
Let's go on with the show, let's go on with the show
