GREATEST PERFORMANCE OF MY LIFE (Petri Oscar Anderle / Roberto Sandro Sanchez / R.I Allen) Nancy Wilson - 1971 Shirley Bassey - 1972 Loleatta Holloway - 1978 Rowetta - 2005 Also recorded by: Varla Jean Merman; Marivic Cabrera-Isami; Giselle Martin. Tonight I gave the greatest performance of my life I never lost control, I played the part so well That not a single soul could tell that I was lying And so, though it was hard to face our friends, I gave a party I know I meant to show them all I've gotten over you And though I saw the unbelieving looks on all their faces I had to try to make them think that it was true So I who hardly dance, danced through the night, just like a gypsy And I who seldom drink, drank like a fish till I was high And I who hadn't laughed since God knows when, outlaughed Pagliacci Till they believed it more than even I Tonight I gave the greatest performance of my life I never lost control, I played the part so well That not a single soul could tell that I was lying But love, if you had been behind the curtain when it fell When all the lights were out and I was all alone You would have seen this actress crying Yes, tonight I gave the greatest performance of my life I never lost control, I played the part so well That not a single soul could tell that I was lying But love, if you had been behind the curtain when it fell When all the lights were out and I was all alone You would have seen this actress crying (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2015)
