The Lyrics

I remember when I was a boy
And the Stock Market crashed
I'll never forget the look on everybody's face
I looked at my father and said you'll break into
If you jump out of that tall building you're looking at
Is that all there is to a crash?
Is that all there is?

Is that all there is?
If that's all there is,old pops, then let's have a soda
Or you can break out the booze and have a fall
If that's all there is

And when I was twelve years old, my daddy took me to see
Can Can dancing, they were dressed in pink tights and
Kicking there heels over their head
And as I sat there I thought we're wasting our time
When it was over I said to myself, Is that all there is
Is that all there is to Can Can dancing?

Is that all there is,old pops, if it is I hate dancing
We could break out the booze and have a fall
If that's all there is

And then I fell in love with the most wonderful girl in the world
We'd take long walks past the theater
And just sit gazing for hours at the sky
I was so immature that I thought Why is everybody crazy about this
We were so much in love and one day she went away and I
thought I''d die, but I didn't
And when I didn't I said to myself "Is that all there is to love?
Is that all there is?
If that's all there is,my friends, who needs romancing?

I know what you must be saying to yourselves if that's the way
he feels about romance
Why doesn't he just end it all
O no,not me, I'm not ready to croak
Cause I might as well start boozing as try this thing called love
When that final moment comes and I'm breathing my last breath
I know I'll be saying to myself "Is that all there is?

Is that all there is?
If that's all there is, my friends, to heck with romancing
Let's break out the booze and have a ball
If that's all there is
