lyrics

Maybe a smile in this scene could help hide
How you're feeling inside 'til the stunt men arrive
Have you forgotten the lines
Is the role not quite right
Never thought in rehearsal
The lights were much too bright
So here you are on opening night

So put on that face
For all the passers-on-by
And in Act IV
For the ladies who cry

It's opening night
Where's the leading lady
What'd she used to say to you
In the middle of her song
You know the show it must go on

There's a full house tonight, you better be good
I've been there before and it's understood
That it's out of your hands written so long ago
And who could come up with a scene so true to life
Here you are on opening night

So put on that face
For all the passers-on-by
And in Act IV
For the ladies who cry

It's opening night
Where's the leading lady
What'd she used to say to you
In the middle of her song
You know the show it must go on
