Big Time

Linda Eder

He said "you got the goods to make the big time"
And then he puffed on his cigar
We'll make a killing, we'll get top billing
I'm gonna make you a star

First we'll improve a bit on mother nature
I've got a doctor friend you'll see
Imagination, Plus augmentation
Viola! A brand new me

Up here in the big time, you need big time looks
A shady accountant who can cook the books
A couple of well-placed friends,
Some dynamite eight-by-tens
Before you can reap those big time dividends

Before you know it I was moving up there
Don Perignon and caviar
A late night "yes sir", leads to good press sir
And takes a girl pretty far

And now my name's in lights above the title
Or it's not on the dotted line
On the back losts now, I call the shots now
When there's a contract to sign

I'm up in the big time, so I make them wait
I'm up in the big time, so I'm always late
I tell them all "Let's do lunch",
Then give them that one, two, punch
I'm part of the big brass, first class, big time bunch

Hey! Big time! Big time games!

Hit the right places
Cover my bases
Do what I have to
Smile till it hurts baby,
Wear shorter skirts baby,
Cry in a pinch baby,
But I won't dare give a single square inch, baby!

Up here in the big time, i've got big time friends
Who wanna make sure by big time never ends
My motto is "I've got mine", I live on the bottom line
Up here in the a-team, we dream, big, big time

It's comin' up roses,
And Barrymore noses
Worth all the sweat dear
Worth it? - You bet!
When you make the climb,
From the nickel and dime,
To the simply sublime...
Big time!
