Leo Sayer – The Show Most Go On lyrics

Although I chose this lonely life
It seems it's strangling me now
AII the wild men with big cigars and gigantic cars
They're all laughing at me now.
Oh! I've been used oo-hoo
I've been taken for a fool - oh what a fool
I broke all the rules
Oh yeah
But I won't let the show go on.

Baby there's an enormous crowd of people
And they're all after my blood
I wish maybe they'd tear down the walls
Of this theatre and let me out - let me out.
Oh! I've been so blind
Oh yeah
I've wasted tine
Oh so much time
Walking on the wire
The wire
But I won't let the show go on.

I wish you'd help me escape
And help me get away
Leave me outside my address
Fa@r away from this masquerade
I've been so used I've been so abused
I've been a fool I broke all the rules
I've been so used oh and abused
But I won't let the show go
I won't let the show
I won't let the show go on.
