What good is sitting, alone in your room?
But come, hear the music play!
Life is a cabaret, old chum!
Come to the cabaret!
Put down your knitting, your book and your broom
It is time for a holiday
Life is a cabaret, old chum!

Come to the cabaret!
Come taste the wine
Come hear the band
Come blow that horn
Start celebrating
Right this way your table's waiting
What good's permitting some prophet of doom?
