Have you ever been to a cabaret? Be careful with pills and drinks!


Liza Minelly



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,

And I love a cabaret!
