Baby, although I chose this lonely life
It seems it's stranglin' me now
All the wild men, big cigars, gigantic car
They're all laughin' at the lie

Oh, I've been used Ooo-oo-oo-oo (used)'
I've been a fool Oh, what a fool
I broke all the rules Oh, yeah
But I must let the show go on

Baby, there's an enormous crowd of people
They're all after my blood
I wish maybe they'd tear down the walls of this theatre
Let me out, let me out

Oh, I'm so blind Oh, I'm blind
I wasted time Wasted, wasted, wasted time
Walkin' on the wire, high wire
But I must let the show go on

----- instrumental break -----

Oh, I'm so blind Oh, I'm blind
I wasted time Wasted, wasted, all too much time
Walkin' on the wire, high wire
But I must let the show go on

Baby, I wish you'd help me escape
Help me get away
Leave me outside my address
Far away from this masquerade

'Cause I've been blind Oh, so blind
I wasted time Wasted, wasted, all too much time
Walkin' on the wire, high wire
But I must let the show go..
I must let the show go..
I must let the show go on

The show must go on | Reviewer: david wayne price | 1/25/10

This is my favorite 3 Dog Night song and third favorite of all time behind Free Ride by Edgar Winter and Lean on Me by Bill Withers. When life gets rough whether its my fault or outside influences I dig down deep and remember that the show (life) goes on. The show doesn't slow down or wait on you it just keeps on going. I have been to 2 concerts and been disappointed this song is not in the show. Love the circus atmosphere of the song.
