"The That's Entertainment!" as written by and Howard/schwartz Dietz....
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 a roar

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 chap kills his father
And causes a lot of bother
The clerk who is thrown out of work
By the boss who is thrown for a loss
By this girl who is doing him dirt

The world is a stage,
The stage is a world of entertainment!

It might be a fight like you see on the screen
A swain getting slain for the lot of a queen
Some great Shakespearean scene
Where a ghost and a prince meet
And everyone ends in mincemeats
The gag may be waving the flag
That began with a mystical hand
Hip hooray, the American way

The world is a stage,
The stage is a world of entertainment!
