"The way I see it," he said"You just can't win it.Everybody's in it for their own gain,You can't please 'em all.There's always somebody calling you down."I do my best,And I do good business.There's a lot of people asking for my time,They're trying to get ahead,They're trying to be a good friend of mine."I was a free man in Paris,I felt unfettered and alive.There was nobody calling me up for favors,And no one's future to decide.You know I'd go back there tomorrow,But for the work I've taken onStoking the star maker machineryBehind the popular song."I deal in dreamersAnd telephone screamers.Lately I wonder what I do it for?If I had my way,I'd just walk through those doorsAnd wanderDown the Champs Elysées,Going cafe to cabaret,Thinking how I'll feel when I findThat very good friend of mine.
