Another Show Song, oh the thrill of the show
The melody’s soothing
But it’s just that the words have to go

Another verse of the same thrilling show song
We’re almost halfway through and yet
Nobody knows what’s going on

I sure wish I just could remember
Just a couple of key phrases but...
I fear that it’s just a little too late
I better come up with something straight, ‘cos
I’m going to have enough trouble trying to follow the chords

I’m getting worried, what if this song never ends?
I’ll be stuck singing it for all time
and I will lose all my friends!

I bet you’re waiting for me to find an end
To this story I’m singing
Which did never begin!
Well here goes...

I wonder how you would go about it
I never tried to end a show song
I’m beginning to have doubts about it
I can’t let it go on forever
and so I just decided that I’d better end the song

So here’s the ending to this charming show song
The melody is soothing but it’s just
That the words are too long
Are too long
Are too-ooo looooong....
