VERSE
 CmCm7
 The actors and jesters are here,
 FF7
 The stage is in darkness and clear,
 Fm
 For raising the curtain, and no-one's quite certain
 CmCm7
Whose play it is.
 CmCm7
 How long ago, how long?
 FF7
If only we had listened then,
 Fm
If we'd known.. just how right,
 CmCm7
We were going to be.
 CmCm7
For we dreamed a lot and we schemed a lot
 F
And we tried to sing of love before
 FmFm
The stage fell apart. 
 CmCm7Eb
Oh o-h, o-h-h, o-h-h, o-h-h, o-h-h-h

CHORUS
 EbBb
 If everyone was listening you know,(Run Bb,C,Eb)
 EbBb
 There'd be a cha-nce that we could save the show.(Run Bb,B,C)
 CmF
 __Who'll be the last clown ... to bring the house down?
 CmGmCmGmCmGmFm
 Oh no, please no,, don't let the curtain fall.

VERSE
 CmCm7
 What is your costume today?
 FF7
 Who are the props in your play?
 Fm
 You're acting a part which you thought
 CmCm7
From the start.. was an honest one.
 Cm
 Well, how do you plead?
 F
An actor indeed! Go re-learn your li-i-ines
 Fm
 You don't kno-ow what you've done,
 CmEb
The fin-aa-lee's begu-u-un:

CHORUS (As previous)
 EbBb
 If everyone was listening you know,(Run Bb,C,Eb)
 EbBb
 There'd be a cha--nce that we could save the show.{run Bb,B,C)
 CmF
 __Who'll be the last clown ... to bring the house down?
 CmGmCmGmCmGmFm
 Oh no, please no,, don't let the curtain fall.
