Everybody's Makin' It Big But Me

Everybody's Makin' It Big But Me

Dr. Hook

Elvis he's a hero he's a superstar

And I hear that Paul McCartney drives a Rolls Royce car

And Dylan sings for millions

And I just sing for free

Oh everybody's makin' it big but me

Oh, everybody's makin' it big but me

Everybody's makin' it big but me

Neil Diamond sings for diamonds

And here's ole rhinestone me

Oh everybody's makin' it big but me

Well I hear that Alice Cooper's got a foxy chick

To wipe off his snake, and keep him rich

And Elton John's got two fine ladies

And Doctor John's got three

And I'm still seein' them same old sleezoes, that I used to see

Oh, everybody's makin' it big but me

Yeah everybody's makin' it big but me

I've got charisma

And personality

Oh how come everybody's makin' it big but me?

(What's wrong with that?)

(I don't see nothing wrong with it Ray)

Well I paint my face with glitter

Just like Bowie does

And I wear the same mascara

That Mick Jagger does

And I even put some lipstick on

But that just hurt my dad and mom

And everybody's makin' it big but me

Oh, everybody's makin' it big but me

Yeah everybody's makin' it big but me

They got groupies for their bands

And all I got is my right hand

And everybody's makin' it big but me

Everybody's makin' it, makin' it, makin' it

Everybody's makin' it big......
