What will it take for them to leave me alone
Don't they know I'm just a guy who sings songs?
I'm not promoting no hit record, hell, I don't have no TV show
And I don't have no reason to live in a goldfish bowl

I'm just doin' my gigs and I'm on and off the road
Everything I say is not meant to be set in stone
Just because they call me a celebrity, that does not make it true
'Cos I don't believe in the myth people, so why should you?

Jazz, blues an' funk, that's not rock 'n roll
Folk with a beat and a little bit of soul
I don't have no hit record, I don't have no TV show
Tell me why should I have to live in this goldfish bowl

Well, there's parasites and psychic vampires feedin' on
The public at large, projectin' their shadow onto everyone else
Well, the newspaper barons are scum of the lowest degree
And they prey on everybody, they prey on you and me

I'm singin' jazz, blues an' funk, baby that's not rock 'n roll
And folk with a beat and a little bit of soul
I don't have no hit record, I don't have no TV show
So, why should I want to live in this goldfish bowl?

So, why should I have to live in this goldfish bowl?
