I've been in show business for 50, no, 60 years. I was approached in school to join a variety act.

Theres No Business Like Show Business

Theres no business like show business like no business I know
Everything about it is appealing, everything that traffic will allow
Nowhere could you get that happy feeling when you are stealing that extra bow
Theres no people like show people, they smile when they are low
Even with a turkey that you know will fold, you may be stranded out in the cold
Still you wouldnt change it for a sack of gold, lets go on with the show
The butcher, the baker, the grocer, the clerk
Are secretly unhappy men because
The butcher, the baker, the grocer, the clerk
Get paid for what they do but no applause.
Theyd gladly bid their dreary jobs goodbye for anything theatrical and why?
Theres no business like show business and I tell you its so
Traveling through the country is so thrilling, standing out in front on opening nights
Smiling as you watch the theater filling, and theres your billing out there in lights
Theres no people like show people, they smile when they are low
Angels come from everywhere with lots of jack, and when you lose it, theres no attack
Where could you get money that you dont give back? lets go on with the show
(theres no business like show business like no business I know)
You get word before the show has started that your favorite uncle died at dawn
Top of that, your pa and ma have parted, youre broken-hearted, but you go on
(theres no people like show people, they smile when they are low)
Yesterday they told you you would not go far, that night you open and there you are
Next day on your dressing room theyve hung a star, lets go on with the show!!

I'm very leery of show business, having been in Los Angeles for the last 10 years. Buzz is a dangerous thing that I've heard applied to a lot of people that I've since not heard of again.

Show Business

You learn to sing
You learn to play
Why dont the businessman
Ever learn to pay
Chorus:
Thats show business
Show bizness
Show bizness
Thats the way it goes
You play in halls
You play in bars
Youre climbin walls
Chasin stars
Chorus
You pay the men
You pay your dues
When its all gone
You sing the blues
Chorus
You wanna roll
You wanna rock
But you find it hard
If your guitars in hock
Chorus
We smoke our butts
They smoke cigars
We drown in debt
They drown in bars
Chorus
You pull a chick
Take her home
No use, man
Youre worn out to the bone
Chorus

I’ve Been Ensnared by Love for You

Ive been ensnared by love for you,
Your sleeplessness, your moodiness,
Your poetry of a hundred broken hearts,
Your youthfulness worshipping music
And tipping your glass of merriment
To imaginary gods of spontaneity
As you step with friends from a bar into the moonlight.

Love arises gradually
Like the smoke of the sweet incense
That your younger sister bought for you
At the astral store of mystical charms
Until it entirely infiltrates the heart
Like incense eventually perfumes
Every room of the house.

Age and distance create obstacles
To romantic embraces;
But what obstacles could be more severe
Than the lingering loneliness
Of slowly moving tenacious tears
Already clouding our lives?

Ive Been In The Storm For You

Ive been in the storm for you
When my horn for you
Was reborn for you
I handled a thorn for you
I was torn for you
I was born for you
And here you go leaving me
Decieving me
And its greiving me
Ive been in the storm for you
Ive performed you you
I was spawned for you
So why cant you love
So why cant you love
Ive changed what I wear for you
And my hair for you
Ive said prayers for you
I gave up my share for you
I went bare for you
And I cared for you
And here you go blaming me
Shaming me
Defaming me
Ive been in the storm for you
I was shorn for you
And reborn for you
So why cant you love
So why cant you love
So why cant you love
And why dont you know
Aww, dont you know
What will happen
What will happen if you do

My father has been dyeing on me for years even though he is healthy and alive.

My father has been dyeing on me for years even though he is healthy and alive. The more I see him, realizes him, the less he is. The past of what was, what was once the sun, is now smaller than a seed, not a muster seed, but poison ivory. I whish it was not but for my sake, I must face this truth. If we came from a place where there was more rage coming to you than love, more frustration than love, more ridicule than love, more lack of boundaries than love, more manipulation then love, more intimidation than love, more hitting than hugs, then you are better off by facing this terrible, this tearful reality go on in to love, to really love, not use fake public displays of love to cover your abuse. Face it, wrestle with it, change it, so as not to past this destructives hell to our children.

But what you realise after you've been in the business for a while is that people develop opinions about you that don't have anything to do with your music, they like or dislike you for a million reasons, they like or dislike you for your last record.

Well, I just can't play the game anymore. I'm 63 years old, and I've been in the business for 40 years now. I take good advice and direction really well, but I don't need somebody that finished college two years ago to come in and tell me what I should be recording.
