Memorable Quotes from Cabaret, the Broadway musical

***

[singing]

'When I had a man, my figure was dumpy and fat...So what?' -- Fraulein Schneider

This is a censored lyric used on the original cast album. The correct completed lyric is:
When I had a man, my figure was boyish and flat, so what?
Through all of our years he was so disappointed in that, so what?
Now I have what he missed and my bosom is full,
But he lies in a churchyard plot.
If it wasn't to be that he ever would see the abundance of me,
So what? [1]
