"Busy Being Fabulous" as written by and Don Henley Glenn Frey....
I came home to an empty house
And I found your little note
'Don't wait up for me tonight'
And that was all she wrote

Do you think I don't know that you're out on the town
With all of your high-rollin' friends?
What do you do when you come up empty?
Where do you go when the party ends?

And you were just too busy being fabulous
Too busy to think about us
I don't know what you were dreamin’ of
Somehow you forgot about love
And you were just too busy being fabulous, uh huh

A little time in the country
A day or two to slow down
A bottle of wine and a walk in the moonlight
Maybe some foolin' around

But you think time is just a magazine
And money's just a thrill
I've waited so long for you to change your way of livin'
Now I realize that you never will

'Cause you were just too busy being fabulous
Too busy to think about us
Lookin' for somethin’ you'll never find
Never know what you left behind
'Cause you were just too busy being fabulous, uh huh

You tell a joke and everybody's laughin'
That's somethin’ you know how to do
You've always been the life of the party
But now, my baby, the joke is on you

'Cause you were just too busy being fabulous
Too busy to think about us
Runnin’ after somethin’ that never comes
What in the world are you runnin' from?

And you were just too busy being fabulous
Too busy to think about us
To drink the wine from your winner's cup
To notice the children were growin' up
And you were just too busy being fabulous
Too busy, too busy

Oh, too busy
Oh, baby

    General CommentThey sang this tonight at the fourth and final night at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater at Encore Park and I was just floored by the beauty of this song. Wow, just wow.

    Its meaning is pretty obvious, I'd hope.
