Some People

This song is by Linda Eder and appears on the album Broadway, My Way (2003).

Some People
Some people can get a thrill
Knitting sweaters and sitting still
That's ok for some people
Who don't know they're alive!

Some people can thrive and bloom
Living life in the living room
That's perfect for some people
Of one hundred and five!

But I at least gotta try
When I think of all the sights that I gotta see
All the places I gotta play
All the things that I gotta be
Come on papa what do ya say?

Some people can be content
Playing bingo and paying rent
That's peachy for some people
For some humdrum people to be
But some people ain't me!

I had a dream
A wonderful dream papa
All about June and the Orphium Circuit
Gimme a chance I know I can work it!

I had a dream
Just as real as it can be papa
There I was in Mr. Orphium'soffice
And he was saying to me
Rose!
Get yourself some new orchestrations
New routines and red velvet curtains
Get a feathered hat for the baby
Photographs in front of the theatre
Get an agent
And a jigtime
Then you'll be hooked in the big time!

Oh what a dream
A wonderful dream papa
And all that I need is eighty-eight bucks Papa
That's what he said Papa
Only eighty-eight bucks!

Goodbye to blueberry pie
Good riddance to all the sources
That I had to go to
All the lodges I had to play
All the shriners I said hello to
Hey LA I'm comin' your way!

Some people sit on their butts
Got the dream yeah but not the guts
That's livin' for some people
For some humdrum people
I suppose

Well they can stay and rot
But not Rose!
