I'm Still Here/ Everybody Says Don't/ Don't Rain On My Parade

This song is by Barbra Streisand.

Original video
Good times and bum times, I've seen them all and, my dear
I'm still here
Gold statue sometimes
Sometimes a kick-in-the-rear, but I'm here
Now one day you're hailed for blazing trails
Next you're nailed for fingernails
Either they cheer or they jeer, but I'm here

I've heard them say song writing, acting, producing
What makes her think that she can? Or better yet song writing, acting, producing
What does she think, she's a man?
One day a Tony, Tuesday you're top of the Bill
So I'm here
Wednesday you're phony, Thursday you're over the hill
But I'm here

Now I've kept my clothes and kept me space
I've kept my nose to spite my face
Still once you say you won't
Keep your place loud and clear
Once you announce you're directing all you hear is

Everybody says don't, everybody says don't
Everybody says don't, it isn't right
Don't, it isn't nice
Everybody says don't, everybody says

Don't tell me not to live, just sit and putter
Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter
Don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade
Don't tell me not to fly, I've simply got to, If someone takes a spill
It's me and not you
Who told you you're allowed to rain on my parade

I'll march my band out, I'll beat my drum
And if I'm fanned out, your turn at bat, sir
At least I didn't fake it, hat, sir
I guess I didn't make it
Get ready for me love, 'cause I'm a-comin'
I simply gotta march, my heart's a-drummin'
Don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade

I'm gonna live and live now
Get what I want, I know how
One roll for the whole shebang
One throw that bell will go clang
Eye on the target and wham
One shot, one gun shot and bam
Hey, look at me world, here I am

I'll march my band out, I'll beat my drum
And if I'm fanned out, your turn at bat, sir
At least I didn't fake it, hat, sir
I guess I didn't make it
Get ready for me life, 'cause I'm a-comin'
I simply gotta march, my heart's a-drummin'
Nobody, no, nobody, is gonna rain on my parade

I've always loved singing theater songs because they tell a story
And this next song that I'm about to sing is from "Showboat,"
Which is on its way back to Broadway after sixty-seven years
