_ Night and Day _ I Concentrate On-Get Out Of Town _ Where Is the Life That Late I Lead
_ Every Time We Say Goodbye. (Each title serves to advance the 'story'.)
A ïHobo/ClownsÍ segment finds them yearning for a crack at Broadway
and features the songs: Be A Clown _ Vesti La Guibba _ WeÍre Still Here -
Try To Remember - BreezinÍ Along With the Breeze - _ Memory _ Dames
and Stepping Out With My Baby.
PLACIDO is featured solo in ñMy Life For A Songî and ñBesame MuchoÍ done in a latino disco beat.
Carol and Placido end the show reluctantly as they take bow
after bow while dancing to ïThe Last WaltzÍ and milking all the laughs they can
from the delighted audience.
