Top of the Bottom
- 40 Views
I started Playing guitar by the town memorial All my songs were singing editorials And when I'd done, the sermon on the mount I counted my change and put it in my bank account I didn't want to work at the local avatar So I left home, expanded my repertoire I did some gigs, No one booed I got free beer and I drank it with gratitude Once I started I couldn't stop That's how I got from The bottom to the top A businessman with a very young dolly bird Talked through the set, liked what he thought he heard Dropped some names he claimed to represent And asked me if I had any management Well two weeks later, I'm signing on ??docubine?? Offered some drugs, at first I declined Lots of parties where the spread's incredible But don't get close 'cause the food's inedible And I became a spinning top That's how I got from The bottom to the top of the bottom I got a sweet deal and I moved to America I fell in love with an heiress called Erica Started out smart, soon got silly I partied by the pool and then arrest for necrophilia News travels fast like electricity A bad mug shot, it's good publicity I laid low for a month or two And spent my dough building a recording studio And that's when it all went pop That's how I got from The bottom to the top of the bottom The label ??Empeola?? got me in the charts My new management had me by the private parts I went on strike, took the initiative Forgetting that I didn't have a single thing to bargain with I lost my nerve, my fall was glorious The lawsuit was eternal and laborious My new material was only fair to middling Rome was burning and I did some fiddling And finally, I was dropped That's how I got back from The bottom to the top of the bottom On the way down people tend to leave you where you fall I tried to stand up but I didn't have the wherewithal I nearly died in a cab one day So I swapped my bourbon for a bottle full of perrier There were rumors about my sexuality The video star, killed by reality Next thing I know I'm on my knees Begging the camera, "Will you vote me off the island please?" But the world forgives a flop That's how I got back from The bottom to the top of the bottom O well all that exposure and the phone starts to ring again I experienced the strange urge to sing again Well not long ago I was a boy with a dream I reacquaint myself with a razor and some shaving cream Look at me I'm ripe for rediscovery All I need is Mary to mother me On the tenth green I was way over par My partner offered me a tour in ??Jesus Christ's Superstar?? And that's when the penny dropped That's how I got back back from The bottom to the top of the bottom Well we toured all over the states of America I got a picture of my son from Erica My parents wrote, "Since you disappeared, Hard to believe but it's just been one year," Now it's back to ale and cakes again I wonder if I'll make the same mistakes again I hope that you've enjoyed this tutorial There's another busker who was playing the memorial I'm getting bored of talking shop That's how I got back from The bottom to the top of the bottom To the top of the bottom To the top of the bottom
