Part 1:
What good is sit -ting a -lone in your room?
Come hear the mu -sic play;
Life is a Cab -a -ret, old chum,
Come to the Cab -a -ret.
 
Put down the knitting, the book and the broom,
It's time for a holiday;
Life is a cabaret, old chum,
Come to the cabaret.
 
Part 2:
Come taste the wine, Come hear the band, Come blow the horn,
Start cel -e -brat -ing, Right this way, your ta -ble's wait -ing.
No use per -mit -ting some proph -et of doom
To wipe ev -'ry smile a -way;
(go to Ending after Repeat)
Life is a Cab -a -ret, old chum,
Come to the Cab -a -ret,
(Repeat Part 2)
 
Ending:
Life is a Cab -a -ret, old chum,
On -ly a Cab -a -ret, old chum,
So come to the Cab -a -ret.
