You Deserve a Better Life

 
Side Show Soundtrack Musical, 1997
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

You Deserve a Better Life Buddy:
When I happened upon this sideshow
I said, 'They need a more dignified show'
I felt the way you were presented
Was completely wrong
And when I heard your voices
I said, 'They need a song'
You deserve a better life
No more worry
No more strife
For you possess a gift to cherish
In this jungle you could perish
We'll cut through it like a knife
You deserve a better life

The Boss:
You should be long gone.
That was our deal.

Terry:
I'd like to make you a new and better one.
I'm impressed by your operation
And let me say
My appreciation of your hard work
And business know-how
Comes from years myself
In low brow situations
Trying to make a buck

The Boss:
Low brow?

Terry:
You deserve a better life
No more worry
No more strife
For you possess a gift to cherish
In this jungle they could perish
I'll cut through it like a knife
You deserve a better life
I could make you a lot of money.


The Boss:
How?

Terry:
I'm a talent scout and a press agent
from the Orpheum Circuit
Your girls could play vaudeville.

Daisy:
Vaudeville?!

The Boss:
They're freaks.

Terry:
But they sing.

The Boss:
Caterwauling.

Terry:
Let me work with them.

Daisy:
Oh, please let us!

Violet:
Maybe we could learn something

Terry:
This fellow here,
He's very good at teaching how to sing.
