Big Shot

In the style of

Billy Joel

Lyrics

shoop uh

well you went uptown
ridin' in your limousine
with your fine
park avenue clothes

you had
the dom perignon
in your hand
and the spoon
up your nose

ooh and
when you wake up
in the mornin'
with your head on fire
and your eyes
too bloody to see

go on and cry
in your coffee
but don't come
bitchin' to me

because you had to be
a big shot didn't ya
ya had to open up
your mouth
ya had to be
a big shot didn't ya
all your friends
were so knocked out

you had to have
the last word
last night
you know what
everything's about

ya had to have
a white hot spotlight
you had to be
a big shot last night
woh oh oh oh oh
yeah

yeah they were
all impressed with
your halston dress
and the people
that ya knew
at elaine's

and the story of
your latest success
kept 'em
so entertained

aw but now ya
just don't remember
all the things ya said
and you're not sure
that you want to know

i'll give you
one hint honey
ya sure did
put on a show

yes yes you had to be
a big shot didn't ya
ya had to prove it
to the crowd
you had to be
a big shot didn't ya
all your friends
were so knocked out

you had to have
the last word
last night
you're so much fun
to be around

you had to have
the front page
bold type
you had to be
a big shot
last night oh oh

oh oh ooh
woh ooh woh oh
oh oh ooh
woh ooh woh oh
woh oh
oh oh oh
ooh woh ooh woh
oh oh oh ooh woh

well it's no big sin
to stick your
two cents in
if you know when
to leave it alone

but you went
over the line
you couldn't see
it was time to go home

no no no no no no
you had to be
a big shot didn't ya
ya had to open up
your mouth

you had to be
a big shot didn't ya
all your friends
were so knocked out

you had to have
the last word
last night
so much fun
to be around

you had to have
the white hot
spotlight
you had to be
a big shot
last night oh oh

oh oh ooh
woh ooh woh oh
oh oh ooh
woh ooh woh oh
woh oh
oh oh oh
ooh woh ooh woh
oh oh oh ooh woh

aw big shot
big shot
big shot
woh woh

aw big shot yeah
mm big shot
woh woh
big shot
yeah
aw big shot
