geri halliwell – cabaret şarkı sözleri

what good is sitting alone
in you 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.
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 h*rn,
start celebrating;
right this way,
your table’s waiting.

no use permitting
some prophet of doom
to wipe every smile away.
come hear the music play.
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 waht 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 alone
in you 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.
time for a holiday.
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
isn’t that a long a stay.
life is a cabaret, old chum,
only a cabarert, old chum
and i love a cabaret.
