Verse.

1.My   Name is Bal-tha-zar Im-pre--sar--i---o and you'll find me at the bottom of the page. 
1.I have artist's hands, though I'm a working man, but my craft has been forgotten by the age.

2.This is my family's trade; my father built this place at the turning of the 20th century.
2.I have been working here for some 50 years, but the young these days are glued to TV screens,
  D                                                                           D

/-----------------------------------------------------0--0--0--0--0--0--2--0---/ 
/------------------------------------------------------------------------------/ 

1.So tonight will be my last night on the stage. 
2.and the old girl is dying on her feet.
                                G

Chorus.

Dsus/A            Bm(Maj7)                 Asus/F#
 Once more to the boards, one more curtain call, 

Give the crowd everything they're asking for and more.
                          /------------------------2/

Dsus/A           Bm(Maj7)              Asus/F#   
Always make 'em laugh, try to make 'em cry, 

Always take the stage like it's the last night of your life.

1.My friends from theater school all thought I was a fool for leaving Shakespeare for the music hall
1.And now my son's left home, and set out on his own, and the critics think we're quaint, but set to fall,

  D                                                                           D

And all the things I've seen behind these tattered scenes,

Dsus/A           Bm(Maj7)              Asus/F#   
And each imperfect turn flickers as it burns,

Only lasts a moment, but for me they'll never die.

Bridge.

         Gmaj7
We are respected,
                  Asus/F#
But we're not remembered.
                      Gmaj7
We are the ghosts of Vaudeville,
                        Asus/F#
Unnumbered.
                         Gmaj7
We are the fathers of the halls,
                      Asus/F#
But we will never be famous.
                                        Gmaj7
We aren't just artists, we are something more: We're entertainers.


Post Bridge.

Outro.


1.I smooth my thinning hair in a gilded mirror To try to hide the tell-signs of my age.
1.My name is Balthazar, Impresario, And tonight will be my last night on the stage.
