Irving Berlin – Finale lyrics

Frank butler:
The cowboys, the wrestlers, the tumblers, the clowns
The roustabouts that move the show at dawn

Annie oakley:
The music, the spotlights, the people, the towns
Your baggage with the labels pasted on

Frank butler:
The sawdust and the horses and the smell

Annie oakley:
The towel you've taken from the last hotel

Annie oakley, frank butler and chorus:
There's no business like show business
Like no business I know
Everything about it is appealing
Everything the traffic will allow
No where could you have that happy feeling
When you aren't stealing that extra bow

There's no people like show people
They smile when they are low
Even with a turkey that you know will fold
You may be stranded out in the cold
Still you wouldn't change it for a sack o' gold
Let's go on with the show
Let's go on with the show!

Annie oakley and frank butler:
They say that falling in love is wonderful
It's wonderful, so they say.
And with a moon up above it's wonderful
It's wonderful, so they tell me.

Annie oakley:
I can't recall who said it

Frank butler:
I know I never read it
I only know that falling in love is grand

And to hold a girl in your arms
Is wonderful,

Annie oakley:

Annie oakley and frank butler:
In every way
So they say
