A clown with his pants falling down Or the dance that's a dream of romance Or the scene where the villain is mean. That's entertainment! The lights on the lady in tights Or he bride with the guy by her side Or the ball where she gives it her all. That's entertainment! The plot can be hot, simply teeming with sex A gay divorcee who is after her ex It could be Oedipus Rex Where a chap kills his father and causes lots of bother. The clerk who is thrown out of work By the boss who is thrown for a loss By the skirt who is doing him dirt The world is a stage; the stage is a world of entertainment! It might be a fight like you see on the screen A swain getting slain for the love of a queen Some great Shakespearean scene Where a ghost and a prince meet, and everyone ends in mincemeat. The guy who was waving the flag That began with the mystical hand Hip hooray! The American way The world is a stage; the stage is a world of entertainment!
