There's no business like show business
Like no business I know
Everything about it is appealing
Everything that 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
Yesterday they told you, you would not go far
That night you open and there you are
Next day on your dressing room they've hung a star
Let's go on with the show!

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'll escort you out of town
The opening when your heart beats like a drum
The closing when the customers don't come

There's no business like show business
Like no business I know
You get word before the show has started
That your favorite uncle died at dawn
And top of that, your pa and ma have parted
You're broken-hearted, but you go on

There is no greater performance of Irving Berlin's masterpiece than Ethel Merman's here! It is mythic.

They all used mics. They had singing lessons every day and acting lessons and dancing and elocution etc  - their voices were strong for a reason. Sinatra/Crosby/Garland. here Merman is singing with gusto in performance mode and it is quite in your face - the voice is full of tone and it is actually quite low - it sounds high but it is in a low possibly original key. So she can belt her way through it - but she is never vulgar and it is all controlled because of those hours and hours of singing lessons and coaching. They must have been sick of it all - but it gave them vocal fortitude

I don't think any other singer can sing this song with the same effect as Ethel Merman. Although a friend of mine describes her voice as similar to that of "Edith Piaf with rabies, " I believe Ethel Merman is unique in her tone and sense of rhythm and style. Thanks for sharing this!

Even with a turkey that you know has fold
You may be stranded out in the cold
But still you wouldn't change it for a sack of gold
Let's go on with the show, let's go on with the show

Esse tema ficará sempre eternizado em minha mente, como sendo utilizada no encerramento do Programa Show de Calouros, do Silvio Santos. Bons tempos!
