When I was just a little kid
The funny little things I did
Had my parents rolling on the floor

I'd tell a joke or two
And when the bit was through
I'd tell them one they'd laughed at once before

My uncle pulled me in the den
Said we'd talk friend-to-friend
Get me on a stage,
He'd manage - ten percent

Then I ran my gags in bars
Got rashes from cigars
And barely made enough to pay my rent

Listen up
To what I say
Listen up
Don't walk away
I see me in you
Listen up

An owner coaxed me to his side
Said my act he'd not abide
He could use me,
But I wouldn't make a mint

I though he was making passes
Just needed someone to wash glasses
Now I punch a clock
My showbiz days are spent

I know that I'm not wise
There's a dull glaze in my eyes
Here - have a drink
I'll join you with a swig



You're a kid who's kinda funny
Don't worry about making money
But if you sell out, honey,
See out big!

Listen up
To what I say
Listen up
Don't walk away
I see me in you
Listen up
