Over and Over Again [From Billy Rose's Jumbo]

Doris Day, Jimmy Durante, Martha Raye, MGM Studio Orchestra

Swing high, swing low, upon the trapeze
At first you'll fall, but then
A year from now you'll do it with ease
Over and over and over again
A star does not come out of the sky
He starts to work at ten
To reach the top, you gotta keep trying
Over and over and over and over
And over and over again

It's up in the morning and down in the ring
Acrobat, rider and clown
Queen of the wire and aerial king
Work or you'll forfeit your crown
You stick to your trick
And your trick will be art
Artists are hard-working men
After you're perfect, that's when you first start
Over and over again, once again, and again
Do it over and over again

Swing high, swing low, upon the trapeze
At first you'll fall, but then
A year from now, you'll do it with ease
Over and over and over and over again
To reach the top you gotta keep trying
Over and over and over and over
And over and over again
Over and over again
