Joe Dassin avec Joëlle, Carlos, Jeane Manson

"That's entertainment" by Arthur Schwartz - Howard Dietz
"There's no business like show business" by Irving Berlin

The clown with his pants falling down
Or the dance that's a dream of romance
Or the scene where the villain is mean
That's Entertainment!

The lights on the lady in tights
Or the bride with the guy on the side
Or the ball where she gives him her all
That's Entertainment!

The plot can be hot simply teeming with sex
A gay divorcee who is after her ex
It can be Oedipus Rex
Where a ghost and a prince meet
And everyone ends in mincemeat

There's no business like show business
Like no business I know
Everything about it is appealing
Everything the tragic 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 change for a sack of gold
Let's go on with the show
Let's go on with the show
