I noticed every other song on this album is on Youtube except this one. If you look at the lyrics maybe that explains why. Could it be the truth? probably so. So I uploaded it straight off the vinyl to digital so enjoy.

They'll guide your career for only 95%

that leaves enough for fronts like three-piece suits and pays the rent

pay your dues and live the blues and not know who you are

makes you wonder why so many want to be a star

(refrain:). do you really want to be ib show bizness?

the instant high and constant come-and-go bizness

got you hanging out in places you got no bizness

and people sell their souls

want to be in show bizness, you want

to be in show bizness- it's all right with me

(just as long a you see:)

Your important to them only as your latest hit.

That's a precarious posititon for plastic king to sit.

The lawyers game is double same

your fate is in their hands

You're a millionaire without a dime

and just don't understand

(refrain). do you really want to be in show bizness... etc.

You're up and donwn a ladder

of success that runs both ways

and you'll see all the worst and best

damn near every day

The fan's demands and one night stands

can fill your mind with doubt

on closing day you're lucky to say

you're down but still not out.

(refrain) do you really want to be in show bizness...
