Broadway Show

By Nicky Byrne/Ronan Hardiman/Don Mescall

 

Followed her home
On an August bank holiday
Sun hanging low
From a paper blue sky

 

I remember the smell
Of the lavender canopy
Remember the moment
Our hands intertwined

 

In her red summer dress
As we sat on the balcony
I kissed her cheek
Then I whispered a lie

 

She told me my life was
The ultimate comedy
Showed me the door
Then she waved me goodbye

 

Oh when I was young
What I didn’t know
That right from the start
I was playing a part
‘Cause life is a beautiful Broadway show

 

Na na na na yeah, na na
Na na na na yeah

 

An American girl
On a train out of Connolly
Happened to sit in the seat
Next to me
Right from the start
There was magical chemistry
Suddenly noticed her looking at me

 

So I told her her voice
Was as sweet as a melody
Sparkling eyes
Were as blue as the sea
She started to laugh
Spilt her coffee all over me
Then as she left
Said, “Are you kidding me”

 

Oh when I was young
What I didn’t know
That right from the start
I was playing a part
‘Cause life is a beautiful Broadway show
 

Oh was it wrong
Oh I didn’t know
That right from the start
I was playing a part
‘Cause life is a beautiful Broadway show
 

Oh, to be young forever
Would I change a thing?
No not ever
 

So I’m sitting alone
On the last flight from Kennedy
Thinking of things that I’ve done in my life
The stuardess smiles
And says
Buckle up safely now
Stop myself thinking could you be my wife?

 

Oh when I was young
What I didn’t know
That right from the start
I was playing a part
‘Cause life is a beautiful Broadway show

 

Oh was it wrong
Oh I didn’t know
That right from the start
I was playing a part
‘Cause life is a beautiful Broadway show

 

Na na na na yeah, na na
Na na na na yeah
Na na na na yeah, na na
Na na na na yeah

 

Hey life is a beautiful
Yeah life is a beautiful broadway show
Life is a beautiful
Yeah life is a beautiful broadway show
