There`s always somebody Calling you down I do my best and I do good business There`s a lot of people Asking for my time They`re trying to get ahead They`re trying to be A good friend of mine I was a free man in Paris I felt unfettered and alive There was nobody Calling me up for favors And no one`s future to decide You know I`d go back there tomorrow But for the work I`ve taken on Stoking the star maker machinery Behind the popular song I deal in dreamers And telephone screamers Lately, I wonder what I do it for If l had my way I`d just Walk through those doors And wander down The Champs Elysees Going cafe to cabaret Thinking how I`ll feel when I find That very good friend of mine I was a free man in Paris I felt unfettered and alive Nobody was calling Me up for favors No one`s future to decide You know I`d go back there tomorrow But for the work I`ve taken on Stoking the star maker machinery Behind the popular song
