The Comeback Lyrics

Alex Cameron – The Comeback Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You been in showbiz long enough, you get a grip on how things work
That don't mean it ain't a surprise when they come to take your show
I been in showbiz long enough, you need to wait your turn
Wait your turn like me

They say the kids don't wanna see an old dog sing and dance
They say they're done with television, and it ain't gettin' a second chance
But they never waited for their turn, they just snatched it up from dirt
From me

They're gonna steal my show from me, they're gonna steal my show
When you come in here tellin' me I'm done, to pack my things, to leave and go
You're comin' at the oldest dog in here, you need to wait your turn
Wait your turn like I did

[Verse 2]
I been syndicated throughout French Amer
They gave me my severance pay but they never gave me a goddamn
They just stole my show and gave it up to some fat fuck cryin with a song about di-o-beet-us

Ahmed, my lawyer, he said you can't do this
Ahmed wears a suit and tie, come on, Ahmed's legit
He's comin' at you like a paralegal nightmare, I got him stayin' up at the Ritz
We're gonna get my show back

[Chorus]
We're gonna get my show back, come on, we're gonna get my show
We're gonna get my show back, come on, we're gonna get my show
I got too much love stored in me, I got a pain you'll never know
You'll never get my show

[Verse 3]
But they ignored my lawyer, and they ignored my wife
And I'm sat here thinking, I hate my god damn life
I used to be the number one entertainer, now I'm bumpkin with a knife
I'll never get my show back

So I cut some hose, from the local park
And I rigged my car up, now I'm fumin' in the dark
And I'll tell you all somethin' bout flyin', I never have to jump the shark
Just to get my show back

[Chorus]
We're gonna get my show back, come on, we're gonna get my show
Come on, we're gonna get my show back, come on, we're gonna get my show
I got too much love stored in me, I got a pain you'll never know
You'll never get my show
