My iTunes were playing softly at the background and this song caught my attention... I turned up the volume and listened to the lyrics. Hence,
There's No Business Like Show Business from Annie Get Your Gun
by Irving Berlin
The costumes, the scenery, the makeup, the propsI remembered someone once asked, "What would you like to achieve in this production?" I wished she could ask me the same question again. This time I'd answer: Malaysia is a country with great food, beautiful people, rich cultural heritage, and it still is. If we could put up a good show to remind; or to get their mind off from all the political dramas... even just for a bare 2-hour show, that would be the least we can do.
The audience that lifts you when you're down
The headaches, the heartaches, the backaches, the flops
The sheriff who escorts you out of town
The opening when your heart beats like a drum
The closing when the customers won't come
There's no business like show business
Like no business I know
Everything about it is appealing
Everything the traffic will allow
No where could you have that happy feeling
When you aren't stealing that extra bow
There's no people like show people
They smile when they are low
Yesterday they told you you would not go far
That night you opened and there you are
Next day on your dressing room they've hung a star
Let's go on with the show!
It's impossible to turn back time, but it's possible to make it into action. Shall we?
So folks, let go the stress of the day (and come) to see the play.
p/s: Pardon my sales orientated sign off. We need audience, so please come ;)
