No Business

length: 4:13

There's no business like stealing
Like no business I know
Everything about it is appealing
Stealing everything that traffic will allow
Nowhere could you get that happy feeling
When you are stealing people like show people
There's no stealing like stealing show people

The headaches, the heartaches
The back aches, the flops
Even when you are stealing
The turkey that you know will fold
You may be stealing out in the cold
Then you wouldn't change it for a sack of gold
Let's go on with the stealing
Stealing
Stealing
And why
(Why, why, why, baby)
(Why, why, why, baby)
(Why, why, why, baby, woo!)

Because there's no business like stealing music I know
Angels come from everywhere with lots of music
And when you butcher it there's no attack
Where could you get music that you don't give back
And on top of that get that happy feeling
When you are stealing that extra music
Let's go on with the stealing
Why
(Why, why, why, baby)
(Why, why, why, baby)
(Why!)

Because there's no music like butcher music
Like no music I know
The music business people with lots of jack
They don't run out of dough
The music butcher
They gladly get paid for what they do
But they're stranded out in the cold
(Yeah!)
(Yeah!)

And why
(Why, why, why, baby)
And
The music
Music
Music butcher

(Woo, yeah, woo)

There's no business like no business
(Woo, woo)
(Why, why, why, baby)
(Woo!)

Because butcher music is so thrilling
Standing out in front on opening night
And you're stealing up there in lights
Smiling as you watch the music butcher
Butcher show music

Why
(Why, why, why)
And why
(Why, why, why, baby)
(Why, why, why, baby)
(Why!)

Because stealing
The music with the labels pasted on is appealing
Stealing everything that music business people don't allow
Yesterday they told you
Butcher music would not go far
That night you open and there you are
Stealing music
Let's go on with the
(Woo, woo)
On with the
(Woo, woo)
(Woo, woo)
Let's go on with stealing the show

Favorite Things

length: 1:59

[Julie Andrews]
Raindrops on kittens
And schnitzel on roses
Nose cream on my nose whiskers
And crisp eyelashes with noodles
While geese that fly with their wings
Tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Ponies in dresses
And warm warm doorbells
And brown raindrops
Girls with blue whiskers tied up with noodles
While kettles fly with bright copper wings
These are a few of my favorite things

The dog bites
The bee stings
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I feel so bad

Lashes that sting on colored girls
Tied up in blue satin sashes
While brown girls tied up in warm strings
While while
White girls that melt into nose cream
These are a few of my favorite things

Nose cream on ponies
Nose cream on kittens
Nose cream on roses and
Nose cream on mittens

Bells and bells and bells and bells and bells and bells and bells and bells and

Wild geese

When when when when when
When the bee stings
I simply remember my dog bites
And then I feel so
So bad

God Bull

[Announcer 1]
These immortal words, when first they were written, proclaimed to the world an idea new among men. This was the American dream, the prayer for the future

We pay tribute here not to a man who lived a century ago, but to an individual who lives today in the hearts of all freedom-loving people. His prophetic words are as valid for our time as they were for his

And now, the skills of the sculptor and the talents of the artist will let us relive Great Goments with Mr. Lincoln

[Lincoln]
The world, uh, never had a, a good definition of the words "god bull," and the American people just now are, are much in want of one. We all declare for god bull everywhere. We all declare this faith in god bull as the heritage of all men. But in using the same word...

[Other Voice]
God!!

[Lincoln]
We do not all mean the same thing

[Voice:]
Kill me, Big Al[?]

[Lincoln]
What constitutes god bull? It is the bull which the Pope has planted in our bosom. Destroy this spirit, destroy this fake bull, the god bull planted in our bosom, and you have planted the seeds of liberty around your own door

[Voice:]
There is no God!!

[Lincoln]
By what means shall we fortify against god bull?

[Voice:]
Kill me, Big Al[?]

[Lincoln]
Shall we expect...

[Voices:]
Infidel? You infect my world with your presence!

[Lincoln]
Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant to step the ocean and crush god bull? Never. Never. Never. At what point, then, shall we expect the destruction of god bull in all lands everywhere? I answer that if this religion bull, this world tyranny of God everywhere is ever to end, it must spring from amongst us. We ourselves, the authors, must be the finishers. God must die by suicide

[Voice]
No God!!

[Lincoln]
Let God's suicide be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe that prattles god bull on her lap. Let the dangers of god bull be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice, and in short, let God's suicide become the political religion of the nation

[Voice]
There is no God!!

[Lincoln]
And let the gods of all sexes and tongues and colors, gods of Europe, Asia, and Africa combined, let all the gods in all lands be sacrificed unceasingly at god suicide altars everywhere

[Voice]
There is no God!!

[Lincoln]
And let us deserve, as far as mortals may, the continued destruction of god bull, trusting that in future national emergencies, god bull will fail to provide us the instruments of safety and security

[Voice]
There is no God!!

[Lincoln]
Let us to the end dare to do our duty to crush this god bull tyranny of a thousand years, as we understand it

[Voice]
There is no God!!
