That's Entertainment Lyrics

Everything that happens in life
Can happen in a show
You can make them laugh
You can make them cry
Anything, anything can go

A show that is really a show
Sends you out
With a kind of a glow
And you say
As you go on your way
That's entertainment

A song that is winging along
Or a dance
With a touch of romance
Is the art
That appeals to the heart
That's entertainment

I think we're a hit
And we'll go on from there
We played a charade
That was lighter than air
A good old fashioned affair
As we sing this finale
We hope goes up your alley

No death
Like you get in Macbeth
No ordeal
Like the end of Camille
This goodbye
Brings a tear to the eye
The world is a stage,
The stage is a world of entertainment!

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 the guy on the side
Or the ball where she gives him a roar
That's entertainment!

The plot can be hot, simply teeming with sex
A gay 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 this girl who is doin' him dirt
The world is a stage,
The stage is a world of entertainment!

It might be a fight like you see on the screen
A swain getting slain for the lot of a queen
Some great Shakespearean scene
Where a ghost and a prince meet
And everyone ends in mincemeats
The gag may be waving the flag
That began with a mystical hand
Hip hooray, the American way
The world is a stage,
The stage is a world of entertainment!
