Barry Manilow

"God Bless The Other 99"

Barry talking:
Well I may have imagined singing back then but you know when I actually got into the music business, it wasn't as a singer at all: it was as an accompanist
I started out playing for auditions, and from where I sat I learned alot because only one out of a hundred ever got the job they were auditioning for. Really, one out of a hundred
But that didn't stop the rest..no sir

Barry singing:
I learned more from failure than I learned from success
I learned from no thank you, so much more than from yes
I learned to be willing to lead with my chin
And if I were willing to lose, I could win

I learned from the losers who got right back in line
The dimmer their future, than the brighter they'd shine
Three cheers for the one, the one in a hundred
But God bless the other 99

Barry talking:
Those courageous people changed my life
They taught me that you can give in, you can give out, but you don't give up

Barry singing:
I learned more from failure than I learned from success
I learned from no thank you, so much more than from yes
I learned to be willing to lead with my chin
And if I were willing to lose, I could win

Vanessa: Everything's coming up roses..."Thank you"
Debra: Everything's coming up roses..."Thank you"
Billy: Everything's coming up roses for me and for.."Thank you, Next!"

I learned from the losers who got right back in line. (Kiss the day goodbye)
The dimmer their future, than the brighter they'd shine. (And point me towards tomorrow)
Three cheers for the one, the one in a hundred
But God bless, God bless....

Barry talking:
All of us up here on this stage tonight are here because of the courage that we learned from the other 99. We'll be forever grateful

Right Billy?
Right! I learned more from failure than I learned from success

How about you Vanessa?
I learned from no thank you so much more than from yes

And you Debra?
I learned to be willing to lead with my chin

Dana, Terry, everybody!
And if we were willing to lose, we could win

We learned from the losers who got right back in line
The dimmer their future, than the brighter they'd shine
Three cheers for the one, the one in a hundred
But God bless...
Upfront we were always meant to be
God bless....
There for all the world to see
God bless..."Thank you", No, thank you!
The other 99!
