Big Shot
Shhh, uh

Well, you went uptown riding in your limousine
With your fine Park Avenue clothes
You had the Dom Pérignon in your hand
And a 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 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
To know what everything's about
You had to have a white hot spot light
You had to be a big shot last night, woah

Ah, 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

Oh, but now 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
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, woah
Oh, oh, woah
Oh, oh, oh, woah
Oh, oh, woah

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 spot light
You had to be a big shot last night, oh

Oh, oh, woah
Oh, oh, woah
Oh, oh, oh, woah
Oh, oh, woah

Ow, big shot
Big shot
Big shot, oh, oh
Oh, big shot
Mmm, big shot, oh, oh
Big shot
