Well you got some tips and you learned some licks
You want to try and teach this old dog a new trick, huh
Well you told your friends you'd have a little bit of fun
You want to walk on up now to number one, huh
You ask me if I'd like to dine
Do you have enough courage
Have you had enough wine, sunshine

Keep your head up don't you sweat in the spotlight
You're comin' out tonight, yeah
You're comin' out tonight

Take a good hard look at this big star view
Don't be bitin' off more than you're ever gonna chew, yeah
You can break the rules when you play in the dark
But every wild fire comes from a little bitty spark, yeah
Does your Mama know who you're hangin' around
A souped up punk in a rock and roll gown, small-town

Keep your head up don't you sweat in the spotlight
You're comin' out tonight
Come on out tonight yeah
Come on out tonight

Are you ready for your big premier 
Your people think you're acting sort of queer
Hey come over here

Tell your friends that you won't be home
You got a tiger by the tail and a tiger on the phone, yeah
You're looking sharp you got the right location
Everybody's ready for the next sensation
Your reputation

Keep your head up don't you sweat in the spotlight
You're comin' out tonight
Come on out tonight yeah
Na na na na na na
