Whitney Houston

Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012) was an American recording artist, actress, producer, and model. In 2009, the Guinness World Records cited her as the most awarded female act of all time. Houston was one of the world's best-selling music artists, having sold over 170 million albums, singles and videos worldwide. She released six studio albums, one holiday album and three movie soundtrack albums, all of which have diamond, multi-platinum, platinum or gold certification. Houston's crossover appeal on the popular music charts, as well as her prominence on MTV, starting with her video for "How Will I Know", influenced several African American female artists to follow in her footsteps. more »

Tired of playing this game 
And I won't play it no more 
And I won't take it no more 
Through with being your fool 
And I won't do it no more 
And I won't, I won't keep up this act 
Not for one minute 
I'm gonna pull, I'm gonna pull this curtain down 

This time I won't play this game 
I made a vow to make a change 
And I bow out 
I won't be hanging around, baby 
I decline to take the pain 
And I resign the masquerade 
And I bow out 
I won't be staying around, baby 
I bow out 

Can't go on with the show 
You're just a stage I went through 
Now you're just fading from view, yeah baby 
It's time for a change of scene 
Guess I'll be taking my leave 
I guess I won't, I won't stay in this play 
Not for one minute 
I'm gonna make, I'm gonna make my exit now 
Oh baby 


When you're left standing on that stage all alone 
Maybe you will realize 
You should of learned to treat me right 
And when this final act is finally through 
Maybe you'll wish you'd been 
The kind of man you should have been 
Now watch me say goodbye 
And walk right out of your life 
Oh baby, all right babe 

[Chorus: x2]
