  • I'm flat-busted
    Wild-eyed and free
    I couldn't get arrested if I tried
    A has-been at a mere thirty-five

    Straight, honest, forthright and true
    Great expectations for someone
    Doesn't anybody know how to have fun
    But I'm

    Gonna be a Big Star
    I'm gonna be a Big Star someday
    I'm gonna be a Big Star someday

    Grape's bitter
    I'm no quitter
    Revolutions come one by one
    Seems it's high noon and I ain't got no gun

    But it's so hard
    So hard
    So hard getting by

    Gonna be a Big Star
    I'm gonna be a Big Star someday
    I'm gonna be a Big Star someday

    Fine bourbon, Cuban cigars
    Rude remarks observed at the C.C. Bar
    I'm perfecting the finest art of wasting hours
    But I'm

    Gonna be a Big Star
    I'm gonna be a Big Star someday
    I'm gonna be a Big Star someday

    I'm gonna be a Big Star
    I'm gonna be a Big Star someday Writer/s: GARY LOURIS, GARY MICHAEL LOURIS
