The costumes, the scenery, the makeup, the props 
The audience that lifts you when you're down
The headaches, the heartaches, the backaches, the flops 
The sheriff who escorts you out of town
The opening when your heart beats like a drum
The closing when the customers won't come 

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 are stealing that extra bow
There's no people like show people 
They smile when they are low
Yesterday they told you you would not go far
That night you opened and there you are
Next day on your dressing room they've hung a star
Let's go on with the show
There's no business like show business 
If you tell me it's so 
Traveling through the country is so thrilling 
Standing out in front on opening nights 
Smiling as you watch the benches filling 
And see your billing up there in lights 

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 o' gold 
Let's go on with the show 
Let's go on with the show!
