Billy Joel Big Shot (12 Gardens Live) Lyrics

Last updated: 10/08/2009 11:00:00 AM

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 cha
You had to open up your mouth
U had to be a big shot, didn't cha, all your friends were so knocked out
You had to have the last word, last night
You’re so much everything's about
You had to have a white hot spotlight, U had to be a big shot last night
Oh oh oh oh oh…YEAH!

And they were all impressed with your Halston dress
And the people that you knew at Elaine's
And the story of your latest success, you kept 'em so entertained
Aw, but now you just don't remember all the things you said
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 cha
You had to prove it to the crowd
U had to be a big shot, didn't cha, 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 front page, bold type
You had to be a big shot last night, oh oh

Oh oh whoa whoa oh, oh oh whoa who-oo-oo-oo-ah,
Oh oh oh whoa whoa oh, oh oh whoa.

Well, it ain’t no big sin to stick your two cents in
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 cha
You had to open up your mouth
U had to be a big shot, didn't cha, 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 spotlight
You had to be a big shot last night, oh oh

Oh oh whoa whoa oh, oh oh whoa who-oo-oo-oo-ah,
Oh oh oh whoa whoa oh, oh oh whoa.

Big shot
Big shot
Big shot
Whoa! Whoa!
Big shot
Big shot
Whoa! Whoa!
Big shot
Whoa!

YEAH!
