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 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 doing 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

Then I 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
But I can't stay that long
No, I got to meet expenses
I got to stay in line
Got to 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 heard my latest record
Spin 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've got to
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
You see 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 forget my name
I won't be here in another year
If I don't stay on the charts
