Eagles Busy Being Fabulous Lyrics

(DON HENLEY & GLENN FREY)

I CAME HOME TO AN EMPTY HOUSE AND I FOUND YOUR LITTLE NOTE:
“DON’T WAIT UP FOR ME TONIGHT”
– THAT WAS ALL SHE WROTE
DO YOU THINK I DON’T KNOW THAT YOU’RE OUT ON THE TOWN
WITH ALL OF YOUR HIGH-ROLLIN’ FRIENDS?
BUT, WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU COME UP EMPTY?
WHERE DO YOU GO WHEN THE PARTY ENDS?

YOU WERE JUST TOO BUSY BEING FABULOUS
TOO BUSY TO THINK ABOUT US
WELL, I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU WERE DREAMING OF;
SOMEHOW YOU FORGOT ABOUT LOVE
AND YOU WERE JUST TOO BUSY BEING FABULOUS, UH-HUH

A LITTLE TIME IN THE COUNTRY;
A DAY OR TWO TO SLOW DOWN
A BOTTLE OF WINE AND A WALK IN THE MOONLIGHT;
MAYBE SOME FOOLIN’ AROUND
BUT YOU THINK TIME IS JUST A MAGAZINE AND MONEY’S JUST A THRILL
I’VE WAITED SO LONG FOR YOU TO CHANGE YOUR WAY OF LIVIN’,
BUT NOW I REALIZE THAT YOU NEVER WILL

‘CAUSE YOU WERE JUST TOO BUSY BEING FABULOUS
TOO BUSY TO THINK ABOUT US
LOOKIN’ FOR SOMETHING YOU’LL NEVER FIND
YOU’LL NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU LEFT BEHIND
‘CAUSE YOU WERE JUST TOO BUSY BEING FABULOUS, UH-HUH

YOU TELL A JOKE AND EVERYBODY’S LAUGHING
THAT’S SOMETHING YOU KNOW HOW TO DO
YOU’VE ALWAYS BEEN THE LIFE OF THE PARTY
BUT NOW, MY BABY – THE JOKE IS ON YOU

AND YOU WERE JUST TOO BUSY BEING FABULOUS
TOO BUSY TO THINK ABOUT US
RUNNIN’ AFTER SOMETHING THAT NEVER COMES
WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE YOU RUNNIN’ FROM?
AND YOU WERE JUST TOO BUSY BEING FABULOUS
TOO BUSY TO THINK ABOUT US;
TO DRINK THE WINE FROM THE WINNER’S CUP;
TO NOTICE YOUR CHILDREN WERE GROWING UP
YOU WERE JUST TOO BUSY BEING FABULOUS
TO BUSY, TOO BUSY
