Tom Jones – Cabaret lyrics


What good is sitting, alone in your room?
But come, hear the music play!
Life is a cabaret, old chum! Come to the cabaret!

Put down the knitting, the book and the broom
It is time for a holiday
Life is a cabaret, old chum! Come to the cabaret!

Come taste the wine Come hear the band
Come blow that horn Start celebrating
Right this way your table's waiting

What good's commiting prophet of doom?
To wipe every smile away
Life is a cabaret , old chum! So come to the cabaret!
