Life Can Be Like the Movies lyrics

Life Can Be Like the Movies

Charlie
Life can be like the movies,
Perfect in every way
Here you can write your story,
Keeping the past at bay
Women
Here it's just happy endings
Men
And the gods only aim to please

Ensemble
Life can be beautiful,
Life can be sweet,
Life can be like the movies.

Charlie
And if you're used to stealing bread on the street,
We have a feast to catch your eye.
The only cops you'll find here walking the beat,
Are just the keystones running by,

Sydney
Look at the life you found here,
Far from old kennington lane.

Ensemble
The weather is always fine here,
'Cause we tell the sky when to rain.

Men
Beautiful faces strolling along,
Women
Keeping the world at ease.
Ensemble
Life can be like the movies,
Here you can do what you please.
Usher
Come see charlie chaplin,
Playing here at the strand.
In essanay's "by the sea"! The funniest comedy of 1916!

Mildred
Romance it never falters,
It lifts you up like a breeze.
Love can be beautiful,
Love can be sweet,
Love can be like . . .
Usher
Come see charlie chaplin,
Playing here at the strand.
In mutual pictures' the rink, the first smash hit of 1918!
Ensemble
Life can be like the movies,
Perfect in every way.
Here you can write your story,
Keeping the past at bay.

Ensemble (cont’d)
Here it's just happy endings,
And money just grows on trees.
Life can be beautiful,
Life can be grand,
Life can be bountiful,
At your command,
Life can be like . . .

Charlie
Wait!
