Busy Being Fabulous

Album: Long Road Out Of Eden (2007)

  • I came home to an empty house
    And I found your little note
    'Don't wait up for me tonight'
    And that was all she wrote

    Do you think I don't know that you're out on the town
    With all of your high-rollin' friends?
    What do you do when you come up empty?
    Where do you go when the party ends?

    And you were just too busy being fabulous
    Too busy to think about us
    I don't know what you were dreamin’ of
    Somehow you forgot about love
    And you were just too busy being fabulous, uh huh

    A little time in the country
    A day or two to slow down
    A bottle of wine and a walk in the moonlight
    Maybe some foolin' around

    But you think time is just a magazine
    And money's just a thrill
    I've waited so long for you to change your way of livin'
    Now I realize that you never will

    'Cause you were just too busy being fabulous
    Too busy to think about us
    Lookin' for somethin’ you'll never find
    Never know what you left behind
    'Cause you were just too busy being fabulous, uh huh

    You tell a joke and everybody's laughin'
    That's somethin’ you know how to do
    You've always been the life of the party
    But now, my baby, the joke is on you

    'Cause you were just too busy being fabulous
    Too busy to think about us
    Runnin’ after somethin’ that never comes
    What in the world are you runnin' from?

    And you were just too busy being fabulous
    Too busy to think about us
    To drink the wine from your winner's cup
    To notice the children were growin' up
    And you were just too busy being fabulous
    Too busy, too busy

    Oh, too busy
    Oh, baby
