Lyrics by John Brimhall (1928-2003)

        C          C7    F
Now the curtain is going up,
          C          G7     C
The entertainer is taking a bow,
                        C7         F
Does his dance step and sings his song,
      D7                       G7  F  G7
Even gets all the audience to sing along,
         C              C7      F
Yes, he knows just what he must do,
              C              G7             C
Knows how to bring down the house when he’s through,
                   C7                  F           Fm
Snappy patter and jokes, he knows what pleases the folks,
          C           G7          C
The entertainer, the star of the show.

It was in vaudeville and he was on the bill,
              F                 Fm           C
With all the singers, dancers, acrobats and clowns,

There was a dancing bear, even a dog act there,
         G          D7            G
And a comedian who never let ‘em down,
          C                     C7
But, when he came on to do his fav’rite song,
          F                Fm              C  C7
He really wowed ‘em in the cities and the towns,
                F        Fm              C
They came from near and far, to see the vaudeville star,
    D7   G7  C
The entertainer!

*** Chords for the "lyrics" part are almost equal to version 1 of Ukulele Chords,
*** I have added the chords for the second part of the rag (the "la-la-la" one :-) 
*** Thanks to Marina Sudzilovskaya for the help!
