    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.

    What good's permitting some prophet of doom?
    To wipe every smile away
    Life is a cabaret, old chum!
    So come to the cabaret!

    I used to have this girlfriend known as Elsie
    With whom I shared for sordid rooms in Chelsea
    She wasn't what you call a blushing flower
    As a matter of fact she rented by the hour.
    The day she died the neighbors
    Came to snick her
    Well, that is 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 till this very day
    I remember how she'd turned to me and say,
    What good is sitting all 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.

    Star by admitting
    From cradle to tomb
    It isn't that long a stay
    Life is a cabaret, old chum!
    It's only a cabaret, old chum!
    And I love a cabaret!
