Lyrics

Well, you went uptown Riding in your limousine With your fine Park Avenue clothes You had the Dom Perignon in your hand And the spoon up your nose Oooh, and 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 You know what everything's about You had to have a white hot spotlight You had to be a big shot last night Woah, oh oh oh 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 Aw, but now you Just don't remember All the things you said And you're not sure That you want to 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 You're 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 oh....... 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 oh..... Big shot, big shot Big shot, big shot
