"Don't Rain On My Parade [From Funny Girl]" as written by Bob Merrill and Jule Styne....
Don't tell me not to live, just sit and putter
Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter
Don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade!
Don't tell me not to fly, I've simply got to
If someone takes a spill, it's me and not you
Who told you you're allowed to rain on my parade?

[Chorus]
I'll march my band out
I'll beat my drum
And if I'm fanned out
Your turn at bat, sir
At least I didn't fake it!
Hat, sir?
I guess I didn't make it!

But whether I'm a rose of sheer perfection
A freckle on the nose of life's complexion
A cinder on the shiny apple of its eye
I gotta fly once
I gotta try once
Only can die once
"Right, sir?"

Oh, love is juicy, juicy and you see
I gotta have my bite, sir!
Get ready for me, love 'cause I'm a "comer"
I simply gotta march, my heart's a drummer
Don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade!

I'm gonna live and live now
Get what I want I know how
One roll for the whole shebang
One throw that bell will go clang
Eye on the target and wham
One shot, one gunshot, and bam!
Hey world, here I am!

[Chorus]

Get ready for me, love, cause I'm a "comer"
I simply gotta march, my heart's a drummer
Nobody, no, nobody
Is gonna rain on my parade!
