Lyrics

[Verse 1] Well, you went uptown Ridin' in your limousine With your fine Park Avenue clothes You had the Dom Perignon In your hand And the spoon up your nose Ooh, and when you Wake up in the mornin' With your head on fire And your eyes too bloody to see Go on and cry in your coffee But don't come bitchin' to me [Chorus] Because you had to be A big shot, didn't cha You had to open up your mouth You had to be a big shot, didn't cha 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, whoa Yeah See Billy Joel Live Get tickets as low as $85 [Verse 2] And they were all impressed With your Halston dress And the people that you knew at Elaine's And the story of your latest success You kept 'em so entertained 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 [Chorus] Yes, yes, you had to be A big shot, didn't cha You had to prove it to the crowd You had to be a big shot, didn't cha 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 [Verse 3] 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 [Chorus] You had to be a big shot, didn't cha You had to open up your mouth You had to be a big shot, didn't cha 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 a white hot spotlight You had to be a big shot last night [Outro] Big shot Big shot Oh, big shot Big shot
