Gil Scott-Heron - Show Bizness lyrics

Well, they got your new career for only ninety five percent
(well) that leaves a number upfronts like ____* suits and pay the rent
sing the blues pay your dues and not know who you are
makes you wonder why so many people want to be a star (well)


do you really want to be in show business?
the instant high and constant come-and-go business
got you hanging out at places you got no business
and people sell their souls
wanna be in show business (x2)
It's all right with me
Yeahh, it's all right with me
Just as long as you know


you don't think it's important to them as your latest hit
that's a precarious position for a plastic king to sit
lawyers' game is double same, your fate is in their hands
you're a millionaire without a dime, you just don't understand! (well)


do you really want to be in show business?
the instant high and constant come-and-go business
got you hanging out in places you got no business
and people sell their souls
wanna be in show business (x2)
It's all right with me
Yeahh, it's all right with me
Just as long as you know


jumping down a ladder of success that runs both ways
and you see all the worst and best--damn near everyday
fans and fans and one-night stands will fill your mind with doubt
and on closing day you lucky to say, "down but still not out!" (well)


do you really want to be in show business?
the instant high and constant come-and-go business
got you proving exactly how much you don't know business
and people sell their souls
wanna be in show business (x8)
