​Oyster Bay

This song is by Billy Joel and appears on the box set My Lives (2005).

Original video
From my room, I see the blue Pacific Ocean
Yes my hotel has me right beside the shore
Well today it's San Francisco and tomorrow it's L.A.
And I feel as though I've been this way before

Well my woman helps my feet to keep on walkin'
But my manager he stands right outside the door
Yes there's an up and coming superstar & he's gettin' rave revues
But there ain't no time for fishin' anymore

I never thought that things would go this far
I never thought that life would be this way
I never thought I'd be a superstar
And Jesus Christ, I wish that I was back in Oyster Bay
Takin' it easy, oh yeah

Well, there's lots of friendly folks that say, "Good morning."
But somehow you know I just don't believe their smiles
I could be New York City bound where I could be among my friends
But the road back home, it seems a million miles

I can see the lights of Hollywood below me
But somehow they just don't move me like they should
I know it's hard to understand, but I would be a fisherman
If I only had the chance, you know I would

I never thought that things would go this far
I never thought that I'd be here today
I never thought I'd be a superstar
Oh and Jesus Christ, I wish that I was back in Oyster Bay
Takin' it easy, oh yeah

Dreaming my life all day, happy to be that way
Wanting it back sometimes, having some peace of mind
Dreaming my life all day, happy to be that way
Wanting it back sometimes, having some peace of mind
Dreaming my life all day, happy to be that way
Wanting it back sometimes, having some peace of mind
