    Lyrics

    "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 a horn,
    Start celebrating;
    Right this way,
    Your table's waiting.

    What good's omitting
    Some prophet of doom
    To wipe every smile away.
    Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
    Come to the Cabaret!

    I used to have a 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 neighbors
    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 all alone in your room?
    Come hear the music play.
    Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
    Come to the Cabaret."

    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
    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.
