Bette Midler
Rose's Turn

Here she is, boys!
Here she is, world!
Here`s Rose!

Curtain up!
Light the lights!
Play it, boys!

Ya either got it, or ya ain`t.
And, boys, I got it!
Ya like it?
Well, I got it!

Some people got it and make it pay.
Some people can`t even give it away.
This people`s got it
and this people`s spreadin` it around!
You either have it
or you`ve had it!

Hello, everybody! My name is Rose! What`s yours?
How do you like them eggrolls, Mr. Goldstone?
Hold your hats and hallelujah.
Mama`s gonna show it to you.
Ready or not, shhh, here comes Mama.

Mama`s talkin` loud.
Mama`s doin` fine.
Mama`s gettin` hot.
Mama`s goin` stong.
Mama`s movin` on.
Mama`s all alone.
Mama doesn`t care.
Mama`s lettin` loose.
Mama`s got the stuff.
Mama`s lettin` go.
Mama`s got the stuff.
Mama`s gotta move.
Mama`s gotta go.
Mama? Mama?
Mama`s gotta let go.

Why did I do it?
What did it get me?
Scrapbooks full of me in the background.
Give `em love and what does it get ya?
What does it get ya?
One quick look as each of `em leaves you.
All your life and what does it get ya?
Thanks a lot and out with the garbage,
They take bows and you`re battin` zero.

I had a dream.
I dreamed it for you, June.
It wasn`t for me, Herbie.
And if it wasn`t for me
then where would you be,
Miss Gypsy Rose Lee?

Well, someone tell me, when is it my turn?
Don`t I get a dream for myself?
Starting now it`s gonna be my turn.
Gangway, world, get off of my runway!
Starting now I bat a thousand!
This time, boys, I`m taking the bows and

everything`s coming up Rose!
Everything`s coming up roses!
Everything`s coming up roses
this time for me!
For me! For me! For me! For me! For me!
For me!
