lonely at the top lyrics – randy newman

i’ve been around the world
had my pick of any girl
you’d think i’d be happy
but i’m not

everybody knows my name
but it’s just a crazy game

oh, it’s lonely at the top

listen to the band, they’re playing just for me
listen to the people paying just for me
all the applause, all the parades
and all the money, well, i have made

oh, it’s lonely at the top

listen all you fools out there
go on and love me, i don’t care

oh, it’s lonely at the top
oh, it’s lonely at the top
