Floyd Cramer – The Entertainer Lyrics

But if I go cold,
I won’t get sold. I am the entertainer,
The idol of my age. I can’t remember faces,
I don’t remember names. Ah, but still they come to haunt me,
Still they want their say. I’ll get put in the back
In the discount rack,
Like another can of beans. Today I am your champion. I’d like to spend a day or two. It was a beautiful song. I can’t stay that long. I may have won your hearts. If you’re gonna have a hit,
You gotta make it fit–
So they cut it down to 3:05. No, I’ve got to meet expenses. So I’ve learned to dance
With a hand in my pants,
And they rub my neck,
And I write ’em a check,
And they go their merry way. Ah, it took me years to write it,
They were the best years of my life. Ah, but what the hell,
You know it’s just as well. I am the entertainer,
And I’ve had to pay my price. And I’d love to stay,
But there’s bills to pay,
So I just don’t have the time. FLOYD CRAMERThe Entertainer Lyrics
I am the entertainer,
And I know just where I stand:
Another serenader,
And another long-haired band. The things I did not know at first,
I learned by doin’ twice. I make all kinds of money,
When I go on the stage. But I know the game,
You will forget my name,
And I won’t be here
In another year,
If I don’t stay on the charts. I’ve played all kinds of palaces,
And laid all kinds of girls. Today I am your champion. I am the entertainer,
I bring to you my songs. I may have won your hearts. Ah, you’ve seen me in the papers,
I’ve been in the magazines. I am the entertainer,
I come to do my show. You’ve heard my latest record,
It’s been on the radio. Gotta get those fees
To the agencies. I am the entertainer,
Been all around the world. But it ran too long. I am the entertainer,
And I know just where I stand:
Another serenader,
And another long-haired band. I got to stay in line. But I know the game,
You will forget my name,
And I won’t be here
In another year,
If I don’t stay on the charts. ‘Cause after a while
And a thousand miles,
It all becomes the same.
