Life upon the wicked stage ain't ever what a girl supposes. Stage door Johnnies aren't raging over you with gems and roses. When you let a feller hold your hand (which means an extra beer or sandwich), ev'rybody whispers: "Ain't her life a whirl?"

Though you're warned against a roue ruining your reputation, I have played around the one night trade around a great big nation:

Wild old men who give you jewels and sables only live in Aesop's Fables. Life upon the wicked stage ain't nothin' for a girl.

yr pal,
joey

I got virtue, but it ain't been tested. (No one's even interested)

Dying by inches, every night, what a glamorous life!
Pulled on by winches, to recite, what a glamorous life!

Though we've listened to you moan and grieve, you
Must pardon us if we do not believe you,
There is no doubt
You're crazy about
Your awful stage

Why has the ghost of Oscar Hammerstein II taken control of this board?

You'll be back the season after!
Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.

Unpack the luggage, la la la!
Pack up the luggage, la la la!

(Or vice versa. I don't have the lyrics on hand.)

My favorite, too, Jon. I used to use it to end my lecture on American musical theater because I figured it summed up a century of musical styles.
