    "Some People [From Gypsy]" Lyrics

    Linda Eder

    Some people can get a thrill
    Knitting sweaters and sitting still
    That's ok for some people
    Who don't know they're alive
    Some people can thrive and bloom
    Living life in the living room
    That's perfect for some people
    Of one hundred and five
    But I at least gotta try
    When I think of
    All the sights that I gotta see
    All the places I gotta play

    All the things I gotta be at
    Come on Papa
    What do you say?
    Some people can be content
    Playing bingo and paying rent
    That's peachy for some people
    For some hum-drum people to be
    But some people ain't me!
    I had a dream
    A wonderful dream, Papa
    All about June in the Orpheum Circuit
    Gimme a chance and I know I can work it! I had a dream
    Just as real as can be, Papa
    There I was in Mr. Orpheum's office
    And he was saying to me
    "Rose, get yourself some new orchestrations
    New routines and red velvet curtains
    Get a feathered hat for the baby

    Photographs in front of the theater
    Get an agent and in jig time
    You'll be being booked in the big time!"
    Oh, what a dream!
    A wonderful dream, Papa!
    And all that I need is eighty-eight bucks, Papa
    That's what he said
    Only eighty-eight bucks
    Goodbye to blueberry pie!
    Good riddance to all the socials I had to go to
    All the lodges I had to play
    All the shuners I said hello to
    Hey L.A. I'm comin' your way!
    Some people sit on their butts
    Got the dream, Yeah, but not the guts
    That's living for some people
    For some hum-drum people
    I suppose
    Well, they can stay and rot!
    But not Rose!!!
