It is a truly wonderful thing
To love, to laugh, to dance and to sing
A brave solo or an ensemble performance
We do it all in Canadian Showtime Chorus

We have become masters of various facial expressions
Elevating brows, opening eyes and wrinkling noses
And let us not forget the matching physical poses
We wiggle our hips, lean forward and our lungs begin to fill
Vowel sounds, legato, swinging the cat and road-kill
