"Play On" as written by Eric Carmen and Scott Mccarl....
It' a hard life but you play it for laughs
It's a cold-hearted business keep away from the draft
And your fingers and your throat get sore
But they're out there callin' for some more

So play on
(While the lights shine around your head)
Play on
(Every night in a different bed)
And the nights go on and on

Get a break and find a place you can hide
'Cause tonight you've got to be a star personified
You're rushing round to get your plane
And it's back in the bubble again

So play on
(While the lights shine around your head)
Play on
(Every night in a different bed)
And the nights go on and on

Critics comin' cause you're number one (number one)
Play all your hits and all the girls will come
(Play on), play on, (play on), play on

Yeah, so play on
(While the lights shine around your head)
Play on
(Every night in a different bed)
And the nights go on and on

It' a hard life but you play it for laughs
It's a cold-hearted business keep away from the trap
And your fingers on your throat get sore
But they're out there beggin' for some more

So play on
(While the lights shine around your head)
Play on
(Every night in a different bed)
And the nights go on and on

The nights go on and on
