It's a Business Carmen:
I've never been known as one of those stupid clucks elaine

Bambi:
Bambi

Carmen:
Who p**ses away a lot of her hard earned bucks elaine

Bambi:
Bambi

Carmen:
But let's face it your coloratura sucks bambi,
Though it breaks your mother's heart,
Forget about the part,
It's time for you to know
Why i really backed this show.

You ask me for my motives
Well, you needn't be so smart,
It's a business.
It isn't making history,
It isn't making art,
It's a business.

Shaw and ibsen take 'em away,
And don't bother me with moliere,
Those russians never pay.

So go on criticise me,
Please, proceed with your attack,
It's a business
I put one million in
And i expect two million back,
It's a business

So, what crime have i committed
If i' putting up a fight
It's a business

And i want those paying suckers
Out there giving me the business
Every night

Carmen:
Am i getting through to you elaine?

Bambi:
I'm sorry mother but to me the theatre is a temple

Carmen:
What so it should only be filled on shabbat? Give me a hand fellas.
(they clap) very funny. You know what i mean back me up.

Carmen:
The not for profit theatres
Don't need to turn a buck
That's not business

Guys:
That's not business

Carmen:
So give them lysastrata
And i wish them lots of luck
I do business

Guys:
She does business

Carmen:
Dorky schmorky
Money misspent
You won't survive yom kiuppur
You'll never get through lent

I once knew a producer
Whose protension knew no bounds
In the business

Guys:
In the business

Carmen:
He mounted samuel beckett
I don't mean it like it sounds
It was business

Guys:
It's was business

Carmen:
So now he's down the cr*pper
While i'm working in my prime
It's a business

Guys:
It's a business

Carmen:
And the shows i do do business
Cause i really know my business
And i'm giving them the business, honey
All the time

Bambi:
But what about the great poets of the stage

Carmen:
Honey i put on the ice man cometh and nobody cameth

Carmen:
To stage hands
To the dressers
To musicians in the pit
It's a business

Guys:
It's a business

Carmen:
The owner of this premesis cleans up if we're a hit
He's in business

Guys:
He's in business

Carmen:
Union workers don't work for free
Hey harry on the spotlight
Blink twice if you agree

See!

I'm not devopid of culture
But my feet are on the floor
It's a business

Guys:
It's a business

Carmen:
I do the karma sutra
With a richard rogers score
That's good business

Guys:
It's a business

Carmen:
Yes green's my favorite color,
And i don't mean on the grass
It's a business

Guys:
In a business

Carmen:
And the shows i do do business,
Yes i'm good at doin' business,
And if you don't like my business sweetie,

Blow it out your…

Guys:
It's a business!

Carmen:
Business!

All:
It's a business
It's a business
It's a business
