SHOW ME THE WAY TO GET OUT OF THIS WORLD (Matt Dennis / Les Clark) Peggy Lee (with Dave Barbour& His Orch.) - 1950 Jack Jones - 1959 The Four Freshmen - 1961 Ella Fitzgerald - 1962 Mary Foster Conklin - 2005 Everything is gone and I'd like to go But how I haven't figured out If you've got the answer, I'd like to know So, tell me what it's all about Show me the way to get out of this world 'Cause that's where everything is If everything is going, I don't wanna stay here Who wants to stick around and watch the world disappear Now I missed a thing for two away down the line And I'd go back and get them, but I haven't the time So show me the way to get out of this world 'Cause that's where everything is Show me the way to get out of this world 'Cause that's where everything is If everything is going, I don't wanna stay here Who wants to stick around and watch the world disappear If I go I'd like to take a few things along But anything that's any good they tell me is gone So, show me the way to get out of this world 'Cause that's where everything is Show me the way to get out of this world 'Cause that's where everything is If everything is going, I don't wanna stay here Who wants to stick around and watch the world disappear I was gonna stay, but then again I don't know If everything is really gone, I might as well go So, show me the way to get out of this world 'Cause that's where everything is At least that's what they tell me when I ask where it is So show me the way to get out of this world 'Cause that's where everything is ++++++++++ As recorded by PEGGY LEE: Show me the way to get out of this world 'Cause that's where everything is If everything is goin', I don't wanna stay here Who wants to stick around and watch the world disappear Now I missed a thing for two away down the line I'd go back and get 'em, but I haven't the time So show me the way to get out of this world 'Cause that's where everything is I asked a fellah where to go to eat He said there's a great place right down the street Just turn to your left and carry on It's out of this world, in fact it's gone So show me the way to get out of this world 'Cause that's where everything is (Orchestral Break) Show me the way to get out of this world 'Cause that's where everything is If everything is goin', I don't wanna stay here Who wants to stick around and watch the world disappear If I go, I'd like to take a few things along But anything's that's any good they tell me is 'Gone!' So show me the way to get out of this world 'Cause that's where everything is I got some money in my pocket To buy a ticket on a rocket So show me the way to get out of this world 'Cause that's where everything is (It's gone) 'Cause that's where everything is (It ain't here) 'Cause that's where everything is (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2012)
