I´m The Greatest
"Okey, okey, shall we try another one? It´s the intro that we´re worst on now, a bit slow, isn´t it?"
"Yeah, too? On the tom tom´s or something, about four, okey, shall we try it?"
"Okey boys, this is it!"
Hey, hey, one, two, three, four!"
When I was a little boy
Way back home in Liverpool
My mama told me, I was great.
Then when I was a teenager
I knew that I had got something goin´
My baby told me I was great.
Now I´m a man
A woman took me by the hand
And she told me...I was great.
I was in the greatest show on earth
For what it was worth
And now I´m thirty-two
And all I wanna do is boogaloo!
Yeah, I look at myself in the mirror
I see my wife and kids
And they tell me...you´re great.
Now let me introduce to you
The one and only Billie Shears
Ah, she´s thirty-two
And all she wants to do is boogaloo!
Hey, hey, hey, hear them say
My mama told me I was great.
Ho! Ho! Ho!
"Let´s go again, go straight from the top!"
"Okey, that´s okey...bang...two, three, four!"
