Ella's in the back, trying to relax
counting out her stack of sweaty bills
she's got one more curtain call
one more sassy line
it's almost quittin' time but not until

one more dance just one more dance
one more chardonnay, oh baby
one more dance just one more dance
and she's gonna leave the Velvet Cabaret

Oh la la la la la
She wants to open up a French Cafe

Her mother was a singer, Ella was a dancer
they both worked at the theatre to pay the bills
she left for good at 16, cause mamma couldn't get clean
moved into the city it was such a thrill they called her
"Elle Encore" cause every night she packed that house and had em' beggin for more and after
twenty years on tour she wants to settle at her own cafe

She says I'll open on the corner of Cranberry Street
I'll have paintings on the ceiling and comfortable seats
I'll serve the best biscotti and cafe au latte
and the purple sign will say "Welcome to Ella's cafe"
