Show biz train, baby won't you climb on board?
Show biz train, baby won't you climb on board?

Is your manager managing to manage for the best?
Or is he making out fine for himself?
Does your record label bring you in with trumpets and horns
Just to pack you back away on the shelf?
Is your lawyer lyin' to you, do you really wanna know?
As your agent waiting home for his pay, pay, pay

Welcome one and all now to show, show business
Wouldn't have it any other way
Welcome one and all now to show, show business
Wouldn't have it any other way

Got some people lining up for seven days before you come
But then your house is full of empty chairs
Are you finding self-importance in the things that you've done?
You're findin' out that no one really cares
Do the people buy your records, do they play them on the air?
But the warehouse must be where they stay

Welcome one and all down to show show business
Wouldn't have it any other way, no
Welcome one and all now to show, show business
Wouldn't have it any other way, no

Show biz train, baby won't you climb on board?
Show biz train, baby won't you climb on board?

Well have you ever had an aardvark sandwich?
Have you ever had a seagull stew?
I had a pet pitiful penguin and I made him watch the six o'clock news
And shine my shoes
I got the help preserve 'em, don't deserve 'em
Try and serve 'em, love 'em all blues

Well, have you ever seen a Madras monkey?
Have you ever seen an Orlon eel?
I had a pet pitiful parrot and I taught him how to pick and choose
Drink my booze
I got the "help preserve 'em, don't deserve 'em
Try and serve 'em, love 'em all" blues

Just keepin' track of where things are all goin'
Baby just keepin' track
Just keepin' track of where things are all goin'
Baby just keepin' track

Housefly
Tell me what you're thinkin' 'bout
Housefly
Tryin' to really sort it out
Flying head-on into the plate glass window, sniffing that DDT

Dumb bird
Flyin's comin' slowly to you
Dumb bird
Flyin' isn't holy to you
Heading down South for the big celebration, you got a ride for me
Know what I'm tellin' ya.

Show biz train, baby won't you climb on board?
Show biz train, baby won't you climb on board?
Show biz train, baby won't you climb on board?
