Album 9 - Colored Lights, The Broadway Album
Track 07 - I'm the greatest star (from Funny Girl)

I've got thirty-six expressions,
From sweet as pie to tough as leather.
And that's six expressions more,
Than all them Barrymores put together.

Instead of just kicking me,
Why don't they give me a lift?
It must be a plot,
'Cause they're scared that I got,
Such a gift,
I'm miffed.

Oh, I'm,
The greatest star,
I am by far,
But no one knows it!
Wait they're gonna hear a voice,
A silver flute,
They'll hail each toot, Hey I hear she's terrific!
When I expose it!

Can't you see to look at me,
That I'm a natural Camille?
As Camille I just feel,
I've so much to offer.
Kid I know I'd be divine because,
I'm a natural cougher (coughs),
Some ain't got it,
Not a lump,
I'm a great big clump of talent!

They'll bend in half.
Did you ever hear the story about the traveling salesman?
A thousand jokes
Stick around for the jokes.
A thousand faces,
I reiterate,

When you're gifted,
Then you're gifted,
These are facts.
I got no axe to grind.
Hey what are they blind?
In all of the world so far,
I'm the greatest star!

Who is the pip with piz-azz?
Who is all ginger and jazz?
Who is as glamorous as?
Who's an American Beauty rose,
With an American Beauty nose,
And ten American Beaty toes,
Eye on the target, and wham.
One shot, one gun shot and bam!

Hey, Mr. Ziegfeld here I am!

I'm the greatest star,
I am by far,
But no one knows it!
That's why I was born,
I'll blow my horn,
Till someone blows it!

I'll light up like a light,
Right up like a light,
I'll flicker then flare up.
All the world's gonna stare up,
Lookin' down,
You'll never see me,
Try the sky,
'Cause that'll be me.
I can make 'em sigh,
I can make 'em cry,
Someday they'll clamor,
For my dram-er.

Have you guessed yet,
Who's the best yet?
If you ain't I'll tell you one more time.
You bet your last dime,
In all of the world so far,
I'm the greatest (Who's the greatest), I'm the greatest (She's the greatest), That's right!
I am the great-est star!
