It's almost time for curtain
and we still don't know our lines
been rehearsing our love in front of empty chairs
still haven't been paid a dime
opening night is here to stay
I still don't know what you're gonna say
writer quit to work in carbaret
said he couldn't move your feet of clay

It's almost time for curtain
seats are filling fast
recriminations fester
from the first row to the last
when the lights finally grow dim
will you think of him
change your character on a whim
just to stay in fighting trim

if they laugh we'll say it's a comedy
..a drama if they don't crack a smile
if they cry we'll call it a tragedy
then we'll milk the tears for a while

It's almost time for curtain
the reviewers are in place
lighting man has instructions
that they're not to see your face
your eyes grow like a balloon
and no man is immune
to the hard luck or the silver spoon
and that curtain call is coming soon

if they laugh we'll say it's a comedy
..a drama if they don't crack a smile
if they cry we'll call it a tragedy
then we'll milk the tears for a while

It's almost time for curtain
and we still don't know our lines
been rehearsing our love in front of empty chairs
still haven't been paid a dime
opening night is here to stay
I still don't know what you're gonna say
writer quit to work in carbaret
said he couldn't move your feet of clay
