BIG SHOT (Billy Joel) Billy Joel You went uptown riding in your limousine In your fine Park Avenue clothes. You had the Dom Perignon in your hand And the spoon up your nose. And when you wake up in the morning 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 you?! You had to open up your mouth! You had to be a big shot, didn't you?! All your friends were so knocked out! You had to have the last word, last night, You know what everything's about! You had to have a white hot spotlight. You had to be a big shot last night! They were all impressed with your Halston dress, And the people you knew at Elaine's. And the story of your latest success Kept 'em so entertained. But now you jsut can't remember All the things you said, And you're not sure you want to know! I'll give you one hint, honey: You sure did put on a show! Yes, yes, you had to be a big shot, didn't you?! You had to prove it to the crowd! You had to be a big shot, didn't you?! 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! 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 you?! You had to open up your mouth! You had to be a big shot, didn't you?! 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 a white hot spotlight! You had to be a big shot last night! (Contributed by Aaron Handy III - March 2003)
