Big Shot


by Billy Joel. Buy album CD: Movin' Out (Original Broadway Cast)


Well, you went uptown riding in your limousine
With your fine Park Avenue clothes
You had the Dom Perignon in your hand
And the spoon up your nose
Ooh, 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
Whoa

They were all impressed with your Halston dress
And the people that you knew at Elaine's
And the story of your latest success
Kept 'em so entertained
Aw, but now, you just don't remember
All the things you said
And you're not sure that 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
Whoa

Oh oh oh-oh-oh, oh oh oh-oh-oh
Oh oh oh oh-oh-oh, oh oh oh-oh

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 the white, hot spotlight
You had to be a big shot last night
Whoa

Oh oh oh-oh-oh, oh oh oh-oh-oh
Oh oh oh oh-oh-oh, oh oh oh-oh

Big shot
Big shot
Big shot
(repeat and fade out)
