Take a look at me  now and take a taste of the money
I'm not in it for the bread          I'm in it for the gravy, honey
Step on the thin ice lightly
And check out the show twice nightly Oh____________!
'Cause I'm I'm on the stage tonight
And if the price is right
I will amaze before the light I crave the light
Blinding white I need the light tonight

Take a look at me now and take a look at my billing
I'm not in it as an e_____xtra, I'm in it for the killing
Inflate my ego gently, tell them heaven sent me Oh____________!

'Cause I'm so expressive and I'm so obsessed with my ego
My ego and it's message
Oh inform the press, invite the guests
I need the press tonight

Do you remember acting out your youth
A Romeo resplendent on an orange case
Do you remember how I would recite
And how I'd blow my lines and hide my face

Well maybe it was childish, foolish, before schoolish
Immaturish,      lose your coolish
But I had to grow and prove my ego

Take a look at me now and take a taste of the money
I'm not in it for the bread          I'm in it for the gravy, honey
Inflate my ego gently, tell them heaven sent me  Oh_________!
'Cause I'm I'm so expressive and I'm so obsessed with my ego
My ego and it's message
Oh inform the press, invite the guests
I need the press tonight

Do you remember acting out your youth
A Romeo resplendent on an orange case
Do you remember how I would recite
And how I'd blow my lines and hide my face

Well maybe it was childish, foolish, before schoolish
Immaturish,      lose your coolish

Oh, childish, foolish, before schoolish
Immaturish,      lose your coolish
But I had to grow and prove my ego
