I heard an extra verse to 'The Show Must Go On' in concert.

Reprinted from the Echoes FAQ

This is one of several cases when a lyric was written for the album, printed on the lyric sheets of the initial LPs, but then not used on the album. Why did it happen here? I don't know -- maybe for space reasons. But they used the verse in concert, and here it is:

Do I have to stand up
Wild eyed in the spotlight
What a nightmare Why!
Don't I turn and run

And then the "there must be some mistake..." line begins.
