Intro: G

 

G C

I am the entertainer and I know just where I stand

C G/B C D

Another Serenader and another long-haired band

G C

Today I am your champion, I may have won your hearts

Cmaj7 D

But I know the game, you'll forget my name

Am Cmaj7

And I won't be here in another year

D G

If I don't stay on the charts

 

G C

I am the entertainer and I've had to pay my price

C G/B C D

The things I did not know at first I learned by doin' twice

G C

Ah, but still they come to haunt me, still they want their say

Cmaj7 D

So I've learned to dance with a hand in my pants

Am Cmaj7

I let 'em rub my neck and I write 'em a check

D G

And they go their merry way

 

G C

I am the entertainer, been all around the world

C G/B C D

I've played all kinds of palaces and laid all kinds of girls

G C

I can't remember faces, I don't remember names

Cmaj7 D

Ah, but what the hell, You know it's just as well

Am Cmaj7

'Cause after a while and a thousand miles

D G

It all becomes the same

 

G C

I am the entertainer, I bring to you my songs

C G/B C D

I'd like to spend a day or two, but I can't stay that long

G C

No, I've got to meet expenses, I got to stay in line

Cmaj7 D

Gotta get those fees to the agencies

Am C

And I'd love to stay but there's bills to pay

D G

So I just don't have the time

 

G C

I am the entertainer, I come to do my show

C G/B C D

You've heard my latest record, it's been on the radio

G C

Ah, it took me years to write it, they were the best years of my life

Cmaj7 D

It was a beautiful song, but it ran too long

Am C

If you're gonna have a hit, you gotta make it fit

D G

So they cut it down to 3:05

 

G C

I am the entertainer, the idol of my age

C G/B C D

I make all kinds of money when I go on the stage

G C

Ah, you've seen me in the papers, I've been in the magazines

Cmaj7 D

But if I go cold I won't get sold

Am C

I'll get put in the back in the discount rack

D G

Like another can of beans

 

G(let ring) C(let ring)

I am the entertainer, and I know just where I stand

C(let ring) G/B C D

Another Serenader and another long-haired band

G(let ring) C(let ring)

Today I am your champion, I may have won your hearts

Cmaj7 D

But I know the game, you'll forget my name

Am Cmaj7

I won't be here in another year

D G

If I don't stay on the charts
