Next Big Thing

Album: Next Big Thing (2002)
Charted: 105
  • Things have changed in the modern world
    It makes it kinda crazy for a boy and girl
    All a lot of noise on the radio
    It really don't rock
    It really don't roll

    Well, a kid come along make the young girls swoon
    They all put his picture in their pink bedrooms
    They all hail the brand new king
    Everybody's waiting for the next big thing

    Big cigars, diamond rings
    Ridin' all around in a limousine
    When you finally hit the top
    Man you know what that means
    Everybody's ready for the next big thing

    For a little while
    You can do no wrong
    Live it up son
    Cause it don't last long

    There's always somebody
    Waitin' in the wings
    Thinking they're going to be the next big thing

    Big cigars, diamond rings
    Ridin' all around in a limousine
    When you finally hit the top
    Man you know what that means
    Everybody's ready for the next big thing

    I'll get a cowboy hat
    Some real tight jeans
    Lose a little weight and
    Get a bellybutton ring

    You can stand back I'm a lean machine
    Maybe I'm gonna be the next big thing

    Big cigars, diamond rings
    Ridin' all around in a limousine
    When you finally hit the top
    Man you know what that means
    Everybody's ready for the next big thing

    Everybody's ready for the next big thing Writer/s: MICHAEL JAMES EDWARDS
