Good times and bad times
I've seen them all
And my dear, I'm still here
Plush velvet sometimes
Sometimes just pretzels and beer
But I'm here

Oh, I've stuffed the dailies in my shoes
Strummed ukuleles, I've sung the blues
Seen all my dreams disappear
But I'm here

I've slept in shanties
Guest of the W.P.A.
But I'm here
I danced in my scanties
Three bucks a night was the pay
But I'm here

Oh, I've stood on bread lines with the best
Watched while the headlines did the rest
In the depression was I depressed?
Nowhere near
I met a big financier
And I'm here

I've gotten through Herbert and J. Edgar Hoover
Gee, that was fun and a half
When you've been through Herbert and J. Edgar Hoover
Anything else is a laugh

Oh, I've been through Reno
I've been through Beverly Hills
And I'm here

Reefers and vino
Rest cures, religion, and pills
But I'm here
I've been called a 'Pinko', commie tool
Got through it stinko by my pool
I should've gone to an acting school
Well, that seems clear

Oh, still someone said, "She's sincere"
So I'm here

Black sable one day
Next day it goes into hock
But I'm here
Top billing Monday
Tuesday you're touring in stock
But I'm here

First, you're another sloe-eyed vamp
Then someone's mother, then you're camp

And then you career from career
Hey, to career
I'm almost through my memoirs
And I'm here

I've gotten through
"Hey, lady, aren't you whoozis? Wow, what a looker you were"
Or better yet
"Sorry, I thought you were whoozis. Whatever happened to her?"

Good times and bum times
I've seen 'em all
And I'm still here
Plush velvet sometimes
Sometimes just pretzels and beer
But I'm here

I've run the gamut, A to Z
Three cheers and dammit, c'est la vie
I got through all of last year
And I'm here

Lord knows, at least I've been there
And I'm here
Look who's here
I'm still here

Kurt Hummel is here
Whoo, yeah


  • This is Kurt's first, and only, solo in Season Five.
    • This is also his final solo in the series.
  • Kevin is absent for this performance, so they used an Artie stand-in.
  • Shirley MacLaine sung this song in the movie Postcards from the Edge.


  • When Kurt lays his jacket down on the piano, it's almost at the edge of it. However, when he stands on the piano, the jacket's visibly further to the other side.
