Title :

Is That All There is?


"I remember when I was a very little girlour house caught on fire. I'll never forget the look on my father's face as he gathered me up in his arms and raced through the burning building out to the pavement. I stood there shivering in my pajamas and watched the whole world go up in flames. And when it was all over I said to myself'Is that all there is to a fire?'"

Is that all there is?
Is that all there is?
If that's all there ismy friends
Then let's keep dancing.
Let's break out the booze
And have a ball
If that's all there is.

"And when I was 12 years oldmy father took me to the circusthe greatest show on earth. There were clowns and elephants and dancing bears and a beautiful lady in pink tights flew high above our heads. And as I sat there watching the marvelous spectacleI had the feeling that something was missing. I don't know whatbut when it was over I said to myself'Is that all there is to a circus?'"

Is that all there is?
Is that all there is?
If that's all there ismy friends
Then let's keep dancing.
Let's break out the booze
And have a ball
If that's all there is.

"Then I fell in love with the most wonderful boy in the world. We would take long walks by the river or just sit for hours gazing into each other's eyes. We were so very much in love. Then one dayhe went away. And I thought I'd diebut I didn't. And when I didn'tI said to myself'Is that all there is to love?'"

Is that all there is?
Is that all there is?
If that's all there ismy friends
Then let's keep dancing.

"I know what you must be saying to yourselves. 'If that's the way she feels about it why doesn't she just end it all?' Ohno. Not me. I'm in no hurry for that final disappointment. For I know just as well as I'm standing here talking to youwhen that final moment comes and I'm breathing my last breathI'll be saying to myself..."

Is that all there is?
Is that all there is?
If that's all there ismy friends
Then let's keep dancing.
Let's break out the booze
And have a ball
If that's all there is.
