Jimmy was a winner back in his home town.
The people came to see him play from miles around.
Then one morning he woke up and looked himself in the face.
He said “I’m going round in circles. I ain’t going no place.
This working foir peanuts is getting way out of hand.
I’ve had about as much of it as I can stand”

Stop, drop everything and run.
Stop, drop everything and run.
I want fame, fortune, my name up in lights.
Goodby small time, from tonight.
Stop, drop everything and run.

Jimmy gave his notice, made it down to the smoke.
Well it wasn’t too much later he was hungry and broke.
He was paying out good money for a hole in the wall.
Giging every night and earning nothing at all.
He said, “The world that I was dreaming of was way out of reach.
I’d rather be a bigger pebble on a smaller beach.”

Stop, drop everything and run.
Stop, drop everything and run.
I want no fame, fortune, my name up in lights.
It’s “Hello home town” from tonight.
Stop, drop everything and run.

Back amongst his friends he had to swallow his pride.
He thought the grass was greener on the other side.

Stop, drop everything and run.
Stop, drop everything and run.
I want fame, fortune, my name up in lights.
Goodby small time, form tonight.
Stop, drop everything and run.
