FFFabulous new lyrics to
"There's No Business Like Show Business"
by Richard Corliss
Special thanks to Irving Berlin for a catchy tune...
As sung aboard the MS Statendam, closing night, 1998
Programmers (singing the original Berlin lyrics):
There's no business like show business
Like no business I know.
Everything about it is appealing;
Everything the traffic will allow.
Nowhere could you get that happy feeling
When you are 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 trade it for a sack of gold.
Let's go on with the show
Let's go on with the show!
(Take it away, Richard!):
The sunning, the running, the tours in the ports,
The food -- and there's enough to make you sick.
The singing, the swinging, the gambling, the sports.
Does anyone have time to see a flick?
The opening with the yenta's roving eye...
(Remember Me and
The closing with the chick who's gonna die...
There's no gloating or showboating
But this Floating Fest's swell!
Hannah works to keep you free of hassle.
Rosie gets you on a plane or bus.
WE present great movies by the passle.
You liked The
That's fine with us.
There's e-moting when you're toting
Your fond memories ashore
Sure, there were some moments when you'd want to shout,
"Hey, what the heck was that film about?"
Still I hope you all would say without a doubt,
"Let's float back here once more."
"Let's float back here once more!"
