Lyrics

Big Shot
© 2014 Sahlen/Starburst

She caught him red handed
With a young one half his age
And when she nailed him big time
It turned another page
In a storybook romance
That had the tell tale signs
Of a match once made in heaven
That's now outlived its prime

(chorus)
Took a big shot to his ego and it knocked him to the floor
No moves left for him to make, she's showin' him the door
Her blood is really steaming; red anger in her eyes
He's lost all his mojo somewhere in his alibis

He never saw it coming
Didn't see this was the end
His prestige now has vanished
Flexibility won't bend
He's down upon up on his knees
Begging for another chance
But everything worth saving's now's
Been pierced without a lance

(chorus)
Took a big shot to his ego and it knocked him to the floor
No moves left for him to make, she's showin' him the door
Her blood is really steaming; red anger in her eyes
He's lost all his mojo somewhere in his alibis

(instrumental break)

(chorus)
Took a big shot to his ego and it knocked him to the floor
No moves left for him to make, she's showin' him the door
Her blood is really steaming; red anger in her eyes
He's lost all his mojo somewhere in his alibis

Instrumentation and originality were good.
