Carly Simon – The Show Must Go On (In Album This Is My Life) lyrics

(Carly Simon)

Some folks like to stay at home
Some folks like to be alone
So when they finally come out of their nest
I've got to turn it on
I've got to be my best
The street may be slick with ice
And I'm sick with butterflies
And some other girl may be the talk of the town
I could lose my voice
Or I could split my gown

But when I'm in the spotlight
It's got to be a hot night
Even when I'm feeling down
The show must go on
The show must go on
The show must go on
The show must go on

I've won some and I have lost
But what I enjoy the most
Is never knowing how the evening will end
Will I be the joke or the comedienne

And when I'm in the spotlight
It's got to be a hot night

Even when I'm shivering cold
The show must go on
The show must go on
The show must go on
The show must go on

Repeat to end.

Background answers:
Even in a hurricane
Your contact lens goes down the drain
When your agent goes insane
When you can hardly stay awake
You'd rather stay at home and bake
When you've got a tummy-ache
To an audience of one
And you think he's got a gun
When laughing isn't any fun
You want to watch the end of 揅heers?
