BIG SHOT RACKET

Hey there Mr. Big Shot

Can we make a deal?

Teach me how to sell records 

Tell me how to feel 

He said it’s one step forward and two steps back

Life’s a losing battle it’s a matter of fact

Hey there pretty momma

Does your hair hang low?

Tell me who do you love?

What does your garden grow?

She said it’s one step forward and two steps back

Life’s a shiny penny on a railroad track

Good morning Blues 

Tell me how do you do?

It seems just like yesterday

That I last saw you

It’s one step forward and two steps back 

With a cocaine habit and a bottle of jack

Hey there Mr. Big Shot

How does it feel? 

Can we make a gold record?

Come on let’s make a deal

He said it’s one step forward and two steps back

It’s just a big racket it’s a matter of fact
