  • I've been around the world
    Had my pick of any girl
    You'd think I'd be happy
    But I'm not
    Ev'rybody knows my name
    But it's just a crazy game
    Oh it's lonely at the top

    Listen to the band they're playing just for me
    Listen to the people paying just for me
    All the applause all the parades
    And all the money I have made
    Oh it's lonely at the top

    Listen all you fools out there
    Go on and love me I don't care
    Oh it's lonely at the top
    Oh, it's lonely at the top Writer/s: RANDY NEWMAN
