Showbusiness (Van Morrison)

Say you want to be in showbusiness See the man on the TV with a phoney smile Bring you up, bring you down He can turn your head around In showbusiness, showbusiness See the man on a silver screen With the phoney smile Bring you up, bring you down He can turn your head around Showbusiness, showbusiness Have a hit, maybe two Make mincemeat out of you Come back in two years time Lay your heart right on the line In showbusiness, showbusiness Showbusiness, showbusiness Where's the next one, where's the next one Where's the next one Oh, baby just like the last one Like the last one Say you want to be in showbusiness See the man in the suit With the phoney smile He can laugh, he can cry He can make you reach the sky, He can say anything you want to hear Be anything you want to be You can say anything you want to hear Be anything you want him to be Make you leave your family In showbusiness, in showbusiness Take it to the bridge And the next one, and the next one And the next one How can you do it like the last one Now do it just like the last one, please Like the last one, like the last one just like the last one Say you want to be in showbusiness Have a pretty face and a pretty smile I'm thinking Make you laugh and they can make you cry But they can't wait, wipe the tear drops from your eye In showbusiness, showbusiness Say you want to be in showbusiness See the rock star up on the stage Right now Behind them drugs, behind them booze Behind them people he can use Behind them people usin' them Behind them people usin' us And the next one, and the next one And the next one Can you make it, just like the last one Oh, you make it just like the last one Like the last one Just like the last one Say you want to be in showbusiness All the world is a stage Everybody must play their part, I've been so long in showbusiness I feel right now just like I got myself just started Forget the junk, forget the jive I just want to stay alive In showbusiness, in showbusiness Take it to the bridge And the next one, and the next one And the next one Oh, just like the last one, just like the last one Like the last one They can rob you with a fountain pen But you got to find some honest men They can make you leave your home Where you go to waste and roam Control your fate, control your life They can make you leave your wife It's showbusiness, it's showbusiness Take it to the bridge And the next one, and the next one And the next one Oh, just like the last one, can you make it Like the last one Can you give it one more time Like the last one Can you put it out, like the last one Showbusiness, it's showbusiness It's showbusiness, showbusiness It's showbusiness, showbusiness
