The Entertainer (Live 1977) Lyrics - Billy Joel

Review The Song (0)



Daaaa-da-do-do-duh
D-d-de-de-de-de-de-deh-d-d-de-d-d-d-de-de-de-do, oh ho, yo ho

I am the entertainer and I know just where I stand
Another serenader and another long-haired band
Today I am your champion; I may have won your hearts
But I know the game, you'll forget my name
& I won't be here in another year if I don't stay on the charts, oh

I am the entertainer, I dress to fit the style
I wear all kinds of sparkles, I flash the crowd my smile
But when the night is over, and I stand without my clothes
The perspiration stains and varicous veins
My eyes look shot, my belly's got a pot
And there's a pimple on my nose, oh

I am the entertainer, been all around the world
I've played all kinds of palaces and laid all kinds of girls
I can't remember faces, I don't remember names
sponsored links
Ah, but what the hell, you know it's just as well
'Cause after a while and 1000 miles, it all becomes the same

I am the entertainer; I bring to you my songs
I'd like to spend a day or two, and I can't stay that long
I've got to meet expenses, I got to stay in line
Gotta get those fees to the agencies
And I'd love to stay but there's bills to pay
So I just don't have the time

I am the entertainer; I come to do my show
You've heard my latest record; it's been on the radio
Oh it took me years to write it, they were the best years of my life
It was a beautiful song but it ran too long
If you're gonna have a hit, you gotta make it fit
So they cut it down to 3:05

I am the entertainer, the idol of my age
I make all kinds of money when I go on the stage
You've seen me in the papers, I've been in the magazines
But if I go cold I won't get sold
I get put in the back in a discount rack like another can of beans

I am the entertainer and I know just where I stand
Another serenader and another long-haired band
Today I am your champion; I may have won your hearts
But I know the game, you'll forget my name
I won't be here in another year if I don't stay on the charts

(What? Now we’ll get to that. I’ll get to that. I’ll get to that. I had to dedicate this song to, uh—Bach? This is dedicated to, uh, Christiano’s Restaurant, or Italian Restaurant. It’s called, uh, “Scenes From An Italian Restaurant”.) [All right!]
