Well, they told me to come on over
I made my way to New York
And they tried to have me deported
Stop me from getting work
Blacklisted me all over
They were vicious and they were mean

They were big time operators
Baby, on the music business scene

Oh, they looked like politicians
But underneath they were thugs
And they spread malicious rumors
Threatened to have me busted for drugs
They had nothing on me
Oh man, I was really clean

But they were big time operators
On the music business scene

They put a bug in my apartment
To listen in on my calls
I was looking for some motivation
I couldn't find any, any motivation at all
They were very desperate people
Ridin' in long black limousines

But they were big time operators
On the music business scene

They were glorified by the media
They were heroes who had names
They said that they would bury me
If I didn't play their game
They said I didn't know the score
And that I was young and green

They were big time operators
On the music business scene

Tried to hold me to a phony contract
I said, I didn't agree
Had to get out of their clutches
Had to go underground, you see
Now I'm livin' in another country
But I know exactly just where I've been

Stay away from big time operators
Baby, on the music business scene

Well, baby, big time operators
On the music business scene

Oh baby, big time operators
On the music business scene

Well, full of names and places
Baby, you know who I mean
