  • (Ooh, ma, ooh, pa) must the show go on?
    (Ooh, pa) take me home, take me home, take me home
    (Ooh, ma) let me go

    There must be some mistake
    I didn't mean to let them take away my soul
    Am I too old, is it too late?

    (Ooh, ma, ooh, pa) where has the feeling gone?
    (Ooh, ma, ooh, pa) will I remember the songs?
    (Ooh, ah)
    The show must go on Writer/s: Roger Waters
