Songtekst

Hi There!

I'm on my way, I'm making it
huh
I've got to make it show, yeah!
Aaa!
So much larger than life
I'm gonna watch it growing
Hey, hey, hey, hey.......

The place where I come from
is a small town
They think so small
they use small words
but not me, I'm smarter than that
I worked it out
I'll be stretching my mouth
to let those big words come right out.
I've had enough
I'm getting out
to the city, the big big city
I'll be a big noise
with all the big boys
so much stuff I will own

And I will pray to a big God
as I kneel in the big church

BIG TIME!
I'm on my way I'm making it.
BIG TIME!
Oooo yes.
BIG TIME!
I've got to make it show, yeah.
BIG TIME! (x2)
So much larger than life
BIG TIME!
I'm gonna watch it growing
BIG TIME!
oh..........

My parties have all the big names
and I greet them with the whitest smile
tell them how my life is one big adventure
and always they're amazed
When I show them 'round the house to my bed
I had it made like a mountain range
with a snow white pillow for my big fat head
And my heaven will be a big heaven
and I will walk through the front door

BIG TIME!
I'm on my way I'm making it.
BIG TIME!
huh
BIG TIME!
I've got to make it show, yeah.
BIG TIME! (x2)
So much larger than life
BIG TIME!
I'm gonna watch it growing
BIG TIME! (x2)
My car's getting bigger
BIG TIME!
My house getting bigger
BIG TIME!
My eye's getting bigger
BIG TIME!
and my mouth......
BIG TIME!
My belly's bigger
BIG TIME!
and my bank account
BIG TIME!
Look at my circumstance
BIG TIME!
and the bulge in my big
Big X15
