Topic: I'm Mr Big.

Jets wrote a song which caused me to make a big political rant about how we poor folk have to pay the way for the rich who make a mess which we also have to pay for. So Jets said that there was enough angst for a song or two. No music yet, so it's consigned to Poems till I or any one who fancies giving it a go can come up with something.

[song]

{t:I'm Mr Big.}

{st:Phill Williams}

[Em] They call me Mr Big.
[Cmj7] In the world of big, I'm the [Am] biggest you can get.
[Cmaj7] I'm so big I'm [Am] everywhere it's true.
[Cmaj7] I'm so big, I [Am] can't be seen by you.
[Fmaj7] I'm so big, you [G6] can't touch me.
[Fmaj7] You know who I am, [G6] but you'll never know my [Em] face.

Let's go down to the alley.
As we walk along we see the fat cats.
I'm the biggest fat cat in the alley.
I lift my claw and all the fat cats run.
I'm the leanest, meanest fat cat in the alley.
If I want your milk, I'll take it- so walk away.

{soc}

[A] What are Kings and [F] presidents?
[Em] When I walk in, they [F] bow their heads.-[G]
I'm Mr [Em] Big.

{eoc}

I could buy the Moon.
I already own the Earth and Mars.
When all the gold and oil has gone.
When you melt in rain and freeze in sun.
When it cost too much to let you breathe.
I'll move on, I'm Mr Big.

{soc}

What are Kings and Presidents?
When I walk out, they'll hold their heads.
I'm Mr Big.

{eoc}

I never talk of money.
The Bank of England's just petty cash.
I spend Fort Knox on a week-end bash.
My suit cost more than the 3rd world debt.
I don't pay tax, I live in a jet.
My bank is lost in cyber space.
I'm Mr Big, you don't see my face.

{soc}

What are Kings and Presidents?
If I raise my claw, their as good as dead.
I'm Mr Big.

{eoc}

Re: I'm Mr Big.

Who is Mr Big supposed to be Phil?

"Where you begin doesn't matter. Your willingness to start is what counts."
Without music life would be a mistake.
Country music is three chords and the truth.

Hi Phill
First chance to have a listen on the decent audio PC. The Laptop audio is rubbish..
Sort of Leonard Cohen ish..
I enjoyed it.
