"Big Shot" as written by and Billy Joel....
So here we go
It's making me real again
So beautiful
Yeah she will be in your most perverted dreams
Or take it to the next level
Man, bring it on
If you've got something to say then step up to the plate

Big shot, yeah
(Oh, I want to be with you)
Big shot, yeah
(Oh, I want to be with you)
Big shot

Oh at seventeen
They all hated her and me
That skinny thing
Well she will be in all of your magazines

So, think about it
And watch from your mobile home
'Cause she's moving out
Oh god, I've waited so long

big shot, yeah
(Oh, I want to be with you)
big shot, yeah
(Oh, I want to be with you)
big shot, yeah
(Oh, I want to be with you)
Big shot, yeah

Believe it 'til your dreams come true
Sometimes now, I hope they do

Big shot, big shot, big shot
Big shot...

    General Commentcomments:
    this song is just amazing.
    i love the intro.
    mat devine, as always, has a truly wonderful voice.

    meaning:
    i believe this song is about a race between two guys [or possibly just one coaching himsel while going] after one girl.

    and then in the chorus, it's pretty obvious.
    'big shot, yeah, i want to be with you'
    everybody wants her. and she knows it. hence, big shot.

    'at 17, they all hated her and me'
    everybody hated them because they were jealous of their relationship
    'that skinny thing...' the rest of the verse is talking about how one day she will be famous and anybody who never made a move will regret it.

    General CommentTo Me It Sounds Like
    He's In A Relationship Or At Least
    Longing To Be With This Beautiful Girl
    That Seems To Get A Lot Of Shit For
    ("That Skinny Thing")
    And He's Coming To Her Defence Saying
    That She's Going To Go Far In Life
    While They Waste Away In A Trailer Park.
