He looked into the mirror saying, "who’s a pretty boy?"
I’m just so sexy in my leather pants, I’m Latin after all
But I’m so sick and tired of waiting for the company to call
I coulda made a million bucks, and I could make a million more
He wants to be a big wig, but success has gone to his head
And now the cut from the company is hanging by a thread

They stuck some dollar signs in his eyes
They spat some truth into their lies
And while he’s reachin’ for the skies,
His head had got too big for his capsize

He fell under the spell of the tall man in the top hat
And then he fell under the spell of his magical white rabbit
And all the press were all impressed with his shop-worn studied distress
And now they’re falling all about to name-check his antecedents

His borrowed mannerisms, his very own purple parody prison,
And now the fashion, he’d hung his hopes and cash on’s been upstaged

They stuck some dollar signs in his eyes
They spat some truth into their lies
And while he’s reachin’ for the skies,
His head had got too big for his capsize

Now it was so hard to imagine that so many things had changed
He had to take it in his strides and quietly bow and leave the stage
But he forgets in 15 years when he’s pushing retirement age,
The fashion he was is revived now he can draw a decent wage

They stuck some dollar signs in his eyes
They spat some truth into their lies
And while he’s reachin’ for the skies,
His head had got too big for his capsize

Oh yeah...
His head’s so heavy now that he’ll capsize
