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, 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 neighbour's 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 your room? Come hear the music play

Life is a Cabaret, old chum, come to the cabaret

And as for me, 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 there isn't that long a stay

Life is a cabaret, old chum.

Only a cabaret old chum,

Hobbies

“Hobbies” are a great British and American tradition. A “hobby” is a special interest or activity that you do in your time off.Some people have animals as hobbies. They keep rabbits, or train dogs to do tricks, or keep pigeons carry messages.Some are crazyabout plants. They try to grow cacti or rare tropical flowers in their kitchens and sitting rooms.

Others are mad about their car or their motorbike. They spend their Saturdays and Sundays washing them, painting them, or buying new bits and pieces to make them go even faster.

Children and teenagers are great collectors. They collect stamps, or postcards, or matchboxes, or pictures of a favourite footballer or pop star.

Many people make things as a hobby. Some teach themselves at home, but a lot of people go to evening classes at their local college.



What do you do in your time off?

1. A lot of people play computer games every day. And you?

2. Do you use the Internet?

3. You really like cooking, don’t you?

4. Do you like gardening (grow flowers or vegetables in our garden/dacha)?
