Lyrics

Beat in time

Written By: FL Lombardo

Max Factor actor, making like a Brando scene
Bedside dancer, producing she’s an agents dream
Channel Debby’s and TV politicians
Newscaster plasters, commissions’ mission
He’s a magician who lies with ambition
And she’s just a worn out bore

They’re just… beat in time (boy)
They’re just… beat in time

High-powered biddy’s making like a magazine
(Did they ever save)?
Wall Street, fashion, money is in season green
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Creature preacher, teaching in the bedroom
Talks faster faster, yes she is your master
She’s a magician who lies with ambition
And he’s just a worn out bore

They’re just… beat in time (boy)
They’re just …beat in time

Pay the price

Written By: FL Lombardo

So you think, you wanted it this way
To be a star and make it your way
It ain’t so easy
You have to pay

Shiny cars and big cigars
Fancy girls, at fancy bars
And still you’re shining shoes along the way

You have to pay
You have to pay
For all the things you want someday
You have to pay
You have to pay your price

You, want to be a Dean or Monroe
Or maybe even Picasso
But then your blues sink into your dreams

So you think, you can beat it
Even Chopin, had to eat it
And God, he gave his only son

You have to pay
You have to pay
For all the things you want someday
You have to pay
You have to pay the price
