    Lyrics

    (Billy Joel)

    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
    I know just where I stand
    Another serenader,
    Another long haired man.

    I am the entertainer...
