Quotes: The Show Must Go On
The show must go on
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking,
My make-up may be flaking,
But my smile... still stays on

I'll top the bill!
I'll overkill!
I have to find the will to carry on!
On with the,
On with the show!

You get word before the show has started
That your favourite uncle died at dawn
Top of that, your pa and ma have parted
You're broken-hearted, but you go on ...
... Let's go on with the show!
There is no business like show business,

There must be some mistake
I didnt mean to let them
Take away my soul.
Am I too old, is it too late?
Ooooh, Ma, Ooooh Pa,
Where has the feeling gone?
Ooooh, Ma, Ooooh Pa,
Will I remember the songs?
The show must go on.
— "The Show Must Go On", Pink Floyd, The Wall
