Dinah Washington – Show Time lyrics

The world is a show place
We all know that for a fact
How, how the world is a show place
We all know that for a fact

You think you're playin' your part
But you don't know how to act
Now you want to be an actor
But you're not playin' your part

How could you wanna be an actor
When you don't even know your part?
You're playing with your hair
And I'm playin' with my heart

I can show you better
Than any words can say
For when I get through lovin'
Baby, you'll have to play my way

World is a show place
We all know that for a fact
You think you're playin' your part
But you don't know how to act

I practiced on your line
And learned to say them right
'Cause you'll be playin' my way
Before tomorrow night

Yes, the world is a show place
We all know that's a fact
You think you're playin' your part
But you don't know how to act

Well, don't think I'm being funny
And don't think I'm being bold
Yes baby, you gotta play it my way
'Cause I've got you under my control

You gotta play it my way
'Cause Dinah's got the lead in the role
