I am the entertainer I know just where I stand
Another serenader another long haired man
Today I am your champion I may have won your heart
But I know the game you'll forget my name I won't be here in another year
If I don't stay on the charts

I am the entertainer had to pay my price
Things I didn't know at first I learned by doing twice
But still they come to haunt me still they want their say
So I learn to dance with my hands in my pants
Rub my neck and just write 'em a check and they'll be on their way
I am the entertainer I've been all around the world
I played all kinds of places played all kinds of girls
I don't remember faces I don't remember names
What the hell it's just as well cause after a while and a thousand miles
It all becomes the same
I am the entertainer I come to do my show
You heard my latest record spin on the radio
Well it took me years to write it the best years of my life
It's a beautiful song but it ran too long wanna have a hit you gotta make it fit
So they cut it down to 3:05
I am the entertainer Idol of my age
Make all kinds of money boy when I go on the stage
They see me in the paper and in the magazines
If I go cold my feet get sore put me in the back of the discount rack
like another can of beans
I am the entertainer know just where I stand...
I am the entertainer
