You Deserve a Better Life Lyrics

 

You Deserve a Better Life Song Lyrics


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.
