The Entertainer - Billy Joel (比利·喬)

I am the entertainer

And I know just where I stand:

Another serenader

And another long-haired band

Today I am your champion

I may have won your hearts

But I know the game

You will forget my name

And I won't be here

In another year

If I don't stay on the charts

I am the entertainer

And I've had to pay my price

The things I did not know at first

I learned by doin' twice

Ah but still they come to haunt me

Still they want their say

So I've learned to dance

With a hand in my pants

And they rub my neck

And I write 'em a check

And they go their merry way

I am the entertainer

Been all around the world

I've played all kinds of palaces

And laid all kinds of girls

I can't remember faces

I don't remember names

Ah but what the hell

You know it's just as well

'Cause after a while

And a thousand miles

It all becomes the same

I am the entertainer

I bring to you my songs

I'd like to spend a day or two

I can't stay that long

No I've got to meet expenses

I got to stay in line

Gotta get those fees

To the agencies

And I'd love to stay

But there's bills to pay

So I just don't have the time

I am the entertainer

I come to do my show

You've heard my latest record

It's been on the radio

Ah it took me years to write it

They were the best years of my life

It was a beautiful song

But it ran too long

If you're gonna have a hit

You gotta make it fit--

So they cut it down to 3:05

I am the entertainer

The idol of my age

I make all kinds of money

When I go on the stage

Ah you've seen me in the papers

I've been in the magazines

But if I go cold

I won't get sold

I'll get put in the back

In the discount rack

Like another can of beans

I am the entertainer

And I know just where I stand:

Another serenader

And another long-haired band

Today I am your champion

I may have won your hearts

But I know the game

You will forget my name

And I won't be here

In another year

If I don't stay on the charts
