Gypsy – Rose's Turn lyrics

Here she is boys
Here she is world, here's Rose
Curtain up, light the lights
Play it boys

You either got it or you ain't
And boys I got it, you like it?
Well I got it

Some people got it and make it pay
Some people can't even give it away
This people's got it and this people's spreadin' it around
You either have it or you've had it

Hello everybody, my name’s Rose, what's yours?
How do you like them egg rolls Mr. Goldstone?
Hold your hats and hallelujah
Mama's gonna show it to you

Ready or not, here comes mama
Mama's talkin' loud, mama's doin' fine
Mama's gettin' hot, mama's goin' stong
Mama's movin' on, mama's all alone

Mama doesn't care, mama's lettin' loose
Mama's got the stuff, mama's let go, mama, mama
Mama's got the stuff, mama's gotta move
Mama's gotta go, mama, mama, mama's gotta let go

Why did I do it? What did it get me?
Scrapbooks full of me in the background
Give 'em love and what does it get you?
What does it get you?

One quick look as each of 'em leaves you
All your life and what does it get you?
Thanks a lot and out with the garbage
They take bows and you're battin' zero

I had a dream, I dreamed it for you June
It wasn't for me, Herbie
And if it wasn’t for me then where would you be
Miss Gypsy Rose Lee?

Well, someone tell me, when is it my turn?
Don't I get a dream for myself?
Starting now it's gonna be my turn

Gangway world get off of my runway
Starting now I bat a thousand
This time boys I'm taking the bows and

Everything's coming up Rose
Everything's coming up roses
Everything's coming up roses, this time for me
For me, for me, for me, for me, for me, for me
