Good evening one and all
We're all so glad to see you here

We'll play your favorite songs
While you all soak up the atmosphere

We'll start with Old Man River
Then maybe Stormy Weather too

I'm sure you know just what to do
On with the show, good health to you

Please pour another glass
It's time to watch the cabaret

Your wife will never know
That you're not really working late

Your hostess here is Wendy
You'll find her very friendly too

And we don't care just what you do
On with the show, good health to you

Batina starts the show at 2 o'clock

Or if by chance you find
That you can't make it anymore

We'll put you in a cab
And get you safely to the door

Oh we've got all the answers
And we've got lovely dancers too

There's nothing else you have to do
On with the show, good health to you

You're all such lovely people
Dancing gaily round the floor

But if you have to fight
Please take your trouble out the door

And now I say with sorrow
Until this time tomorrow

We'll bid you all a fond Adieu
On with the show, good health to you
