I am the entertainer and I know just where I stand
Another serenader and another long-haired band
Today I am your champion, I may have won your hearts
But I know the game, you'll forget my name
And I won't be here in another year
If I don't stay on the charts, oh

I am the entertainer and I've had to pay my price
The things I did not know at first, I learned by doing twice
But still they come to haunt me, still they want their say
So I've learned to dance with a hand in my pants
I let 'em rub my neck and I write 'em a check
And they go their merry way

I am the entertainer, been all around the world
I've played all kinds of palaces and laid all kinds of girls
I can't remember faces, I don't remember names
Oh, but what the hell, you know it's just as well
'Cause after a while and a thousand miles
It all becomes the same

I am the entertainer, I bring to you my songs
I'd like to spend a day or two, but I can't stay that long
I got to meet expenses, I got to stay in line
Got to get those fees to the agencies
And I'd love to stay but there's bills to pay
So I just don't have the time

I am the entertainer, I've come to do my show
You've heard my latest record spin on the radio
Oh, it took me years to write it, they were the best years of my life
It was a beautiful song, but it ran too long
If you're gonna have a hit you gotta make it fit
So they cut it down to 3:05

I am the entertainer, the idol of my age
I make all kinds of money when I go on the stage
Ah, you see me in the papers, I've been in the magazines
But if I go cold, I won't get sold
I get put in the back in a discount rack
Like another can of beans

I am the entertainer and I know just where I stand
Another serenader and another long-haired band
Today I am your champion, I may have won your hearts
But I know the game, you'll forget my name
I won't be here in another year
If I don't stay on the charts
