1ST VERSE:

 G                        D
Two for the show, and my mother wants to go
        C                                         G   C
It'll break her heart when I tell her she's too old
 G                      D
I'm in my place, I got makeup all over my face
    C                                     G
I think I know my lines, but I don't know


CHORUS:

 C                              G
One for the money, two for the show
 C                            G
Three for the lady on the radio
 C                                  G
Four might be the one you'll never know, you'll never know
   Am                             D
If only there was a better way to go
             C     G             (Way to go)
Two for the show


2ND VERSE:

     G                                D
I'm waiting in the wings, while the queen of virtue sings
        C                                            G   C
It'll break her heart when I tell her she's out of key
         G                                 D
If they gave her half a chance, she could soon learn how to dance
    C                                 G
So she could earn her living gracefully


CHORUS:

 C                              G
One for the money, two for the show
 C                            G
Three for the lady on the radio
 C                                  G
Four might be the one you'll never know, you'll never know
   Am                             D
If only there was a better way to go
             G                   (Way to go)
Two for the show
