What will it take for them to leave me alone Don't they know I'm just a guy who sings songs I'm not promoting no hit record And I don't have no TV show And I don't have no reason to live in a goldfish bowl I'm just doing my gigs And I'm on and off the road Everything I say is not meant to be set in stone Just because they call me a celebrity That does not make it true 'Cause I don't believe in the myth people So why should you? Jazz Blues & Funk That's not Rock & Roll Folk with a beat And a little bit of Soul I don't have no hit record I don't have no TV show Tell me why should I have to live in this goldfish bowl? Well there's parasites and psychic vampires Feeding on the public at large Projecting their shadow onto everyone else Well the newspaper barons Are the scum of the lowest degree And they prey on everybody They prey on you and me I'm singing Jazz Blues & Funk Baby that's not Rock & Roll Folk with a beat And a little bit of Soul I don't have no hit record I don't have no TV show So why should I want to live in this goldfish bowl?
