THE LAST SHOW

They?re taking down the silver screen
And ripping up the seats
So we?ll say good-bye to the back row
Where the lovers used to meet

The walls that held the laughter
And the darkness that hid the tears
And the ice cream shining usherettes
Now quietly disappear

And they?re all disappearing
Disappearing over night
Fading in to the darkness
Every time you turn out your light

Say good-bye to the sad old mad
With flickering appeal
Who loved the old projector
And yet cursed from reel to reel

No more box office gambles
To an audience of five
But gambles of another kind
Eyes down to stay alive

And they?re all disappearing
Disappearing over night
Fading in to the darkness
Every time you turn out your light
