Big Time

Peter Gabriel

  I'm on my way, I'm making it        
  I've got to make it show, yeah       
    So much larger than life       
  I'm going to watch it growing,        hey hey hey

 The place where I come from is a small town
 They think so small, they use small words
But not me, I'm smarter than that, I worked it out
 I've been stretching my mouth to let those big words come right out
I've had enough, I'm getting out, to the city, the big big city
 I'll be a big noise with all the big boys, so much stuff I will own
 And I will pray to a big god, as I kneel in the big church

 Big time, I'm on my way, I'm making it 
 Big time       
 Big time, I've got to make it show, yeah  
 Big time     
 Big time,  So much larger than life
 Big time, I'm going to watch it growing,
 Big time    

Oh oh oh,   oh oh oh  oh oh oh,   oh oh oh  

My parties all have big names
And I greet them with the widest smile
Tell them how my life is one big adventure^
And always they're amazed
When I show them round my house, to my bed
I had it made like a mountain range
With a snow-white pillow for my big fat head
And my heaven will be a big heaven
And I will walk through the front door

My car getting bigger
Big time, my house getting bigger
Big time, my eyes getting bigger
Big time, and my mouth  
Big time, my belly is getting bigger
Big time, and my bank account
Big time, look at my circumstance
Big time, and the bulge in my big big big big big big ... big
