Billy Joel vs. Beastie Boys



 


Big Shot
Billy Joel
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
Eww 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

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
Whoa-o-o-o

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 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
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

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

Ah big shot

Big shot

Big shot

Mmm big shot

Big shot

Well you had to be a big shot
Didn't you
You had to turn the party out
You had to be a big shot
Didn't you
Had to hold it on your mouth
Had to be a big shot
Didn’t you
Had to always please the crowd
Had to have the white hot spotlight
Had to be a big shot last night
Whoa-oh-oh

Had to be a big shot
Didn’t you
Always turn the party out
Had to have the blood red last night
Just to hold it on your mouth
Had to be a big shot
Didn’t you
Had to have the blood red last night
Whoa

Whoa oh
Oh oh oh
Whoa oh
Oh oh oh
Whoa oh
Oh oh oh
Whoa oh
Oh oh oh

  1. To be fair I gave the Beastie Boys a chance. Couldn't get further than two lines and had to shut it off. They suck

  3. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!! Be assured that it felt like my ears were bleeding before the editing process was completed, and I would like to think of myself as being quite open to most kinds of music.

    Should that not be in front of all your choices of music perhaps, huh?
