That's Entertainment
Tony Bennett
(Howard Deitz/Arthur Schwartz)

The clown with his pants falling down or the dance that's a dream of romance
Or the scene where the villain is mean.
That's entertainment!

The lights on the lady in tights or the bride with a guy on the side,
Or the ball where she gives him her all.
That's entertainment!

The plot can be hot, simply teeming with s**,
A g** divorcee who is after her "ex".
It can be Oedipus Rex, where a chap kills his father
And causes a lot of bother.
The clerk who is thrown out of work by the boss,
Who is thrown for a loss by the skirt who is doing him dirt.
The world is a stage, the stage is a world of entertainment
