Lyrics

Maureen and Sam will amaze you with songs
That only could come from a star
And the comical dance and the glance from afar

Oh my God did you hear what she said
About the way that I talk and hold my head in the air
The lights and the magic have faded away

Maureen and Sam will continue to smile
Though their audience mumble and stumble in the aisle
The first hello and the hasty goodbye

Dare you to say that I'm cheap and I'm mean
When you know that it's me holding this scene in the air
The lights and the magic have faded away

Maureen and Sam never were a success
But their picture still hangs on the dressing room wall
The glory that comes and the glory that goes

So please don't you cry and it's no use to talk
You're no longer as young as before
And as Maureen lies dying the crowd scream for more

Oh my God did you hear what she said
About the way that I talk and hold my head in the air
The lights and the magic have faded away
