Testo Big Shot – Billy Joel

Testo della canzone Big Shot di Billy Joel
Album:
Well, you went uptown riding in your limousine
With your fine Park Avenue clothes.
You had the Dom Perignon in your hand
And a spoon up your nose.
When you wake up in the morning with you head on fire
And your eyes too bloody to see,
Go on and cry in your coffee,
But don’t come bitching 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 the white hot spot light.
You had to be a big shot last night.

They were all impressed with your Halston dress
And the people that you knew at Elaine’s.
And with the story of your latest success,
You kept them so entertained.
But not you just don’t remember all the things you said
And you’re not sure that you wanna 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, 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’re so much fun to be around.
You had to have the white hot spot light.
You had to be a big shot last night
