SO LONG, BIG TIME (Harold Arlen (m) / Dory Langdon (m) 1963) Tony Bennett Also sung by: Mona Larse Nikki Iles Kim Parker Monica Zetterlund Bright lights are dimmer Bank roll is slimmer Looks like I’m down and done Bye bye, I gotta run, bye bye. So long, so long Big time So long, so long Big time. I made it fine I made it fast That ain’t the sign It has to last. Had it made for a while In a highfalutin’ style. So long, so long Big time Big dough, bright lights Big time. I won’t pretend I am Glad it’s ended It was fun Now its done But I’ll never sing A loser’s song. So long, big time I gotta run So long. Tell the chicks and tell all the cronies Lost it on the cards and the ponies Tell the friends and fair-weather phonies Livin’ high Tell ‘em, “bye” And tell ‘em why. Lady Luck just gave me the brush off So I’ll rush off and try a new routine. I’m a guy who rolls with the punches And my hunch is, it’s time to quit the scene. Tell the kids and tell all the cookies Tell the babes and tell all the bookies That I knew, that I’m through And when you do Buy a few beers for me Tell 'em no tears for me. So long, so long Big time Big dough, bright lights Big time. Ain’t gonna grieve ‘cause I must be leavin’ It was fun, now it’s done But I’ll never sing, a loser’s song. So long, big time I gotta run So long. (Transcribed by David Story - September 2013)
