Barbra (sung): if no one gets to hear it, its as good as dead!

Producer 2: you have to think about you career!

Barbra (sung): it has to come to life!

Barbra (sung): bit by bit, putting it together

Piece by piece, only way to make a work of art

Every moment makes a contribution

Every little detail plays a parts

Having just a visions no solution

Everything depends on execution

Putting it together, thats what counts!

Ounce by ounce, putting in together

Small amounts, adding up to make a work of art

First of all you need a good foundation

Otherwise its risky from the start

Takes a little cocktail conversation

But without the proper preparation

Having just a visions no solution

Everything depends on execution

The art of making art

Is putting it together, bit by bit

Producer 2: do we really need all these musicians?

Barbra: link by link, making the connections, yes we do!

Drink by drink, taking every comment as it comes

Learning how to play the politician

Like you play piano, bass and drums

Otherwise youll find your composition

Isnt gonna get much exhibition

Art isnt easy

Every minor detail is a major decision

Have to keep things in scale

Have to hold to your vision

Producer 1: why dont we talk about this over dinner, darling?

Whats a little cocktail conversation

If it gets the funds for your foundation

Every time I start to feel defensive

I remember vinyl is expensive!

Producer 3: would you agree to do an interview?

Barbra: maybe one!

Dot by dot, building up the image

Shot by shot, keeping at a distance doesnt pay

Still if you remember your objective

Not give all your privacy away

A little bit of hype can be effective

As long as you can keep it in perspective

Even when you get some recognition

Everything you do you still audition

Art isnt easy

Overnight youre a trend

Youre the right combination

Then the trends at an end

Youre suddenly last years sensation!

All they ever want is repetition

All they really like is what they know

Gotta keep a link with your tradition

Gotta learn to trust your intuition

While you re-establish your position

So that you can be on exhibit...

So that your work can be on exhibition!

Be new, girl!

They tell you till theyre blue, girl!

Youre new, or else youre through, girl!

And even if its true, girl,

You do what you can do!

Bit by bit, putting it together

Piece by piece, working on the vision night and day

All it takes is time and perseverance

With a little luck along the way

Putting in a personal appearance

Gathering supporters and adherents...

Producer 1: well, shes an original!

Producer 3: was!

Barbra: mapping out the songs but in addition

Harmonizing each negotiation

Balancing the part thats all musicians

With the part thats strictly presentation

Balancing the money with the mission

Till you have the perfect orchestration

Even if you do have the suspicion

That its taking all your concentration

The art of making art

Is putting it together, bit by bit

Beat by beat, part by part

Sheet by sheet, chart by chart track by track, bit by bit,

Reel by reel, pout by pout

Stack by stack, snit by snit,

Meal by meal, shout by shout

Deal by deal, spat by spat

Shpiel by shpiel, doubt by doubt

And that... is the state of the art!
