Intro: G

  G                        C 
I am the entertainer and I know just where I stand
 C              G/B     C                  D      
Another Serenader and another long-haired band
  G                         C
Today I am your champion, I may have won your hearts
      Cmaj7                   D
But I know the game, you'll forget my name
      Am               Cmaj7 
And I won't be here in another year
     D                   G 
If I don't stay on the charts

  G                           C
I am the entertainer and I've had to pay my price
    C                            G/B    C            D 
The things I did not know at first I learned by doin' twice
        G                             C
Ah, but still they come to haunt me, still they want their say
         Cmaj7                   D
So I've learned to dance with a hand in my pants
          Am                Cmaj7
I let 'em rub my neck and I write 'em a check
         D                G 
And they go their merry way

  G                   C 
I am the entertainer, been all around the world
     C                         G/B    C                D    
I've played all kinds of palaces and laid all kinds of girls
  G                    C 
I can't remember faces, I don't remember names
        Cmaj7                      D
Ah, but what the hell, You know it's just as well
        Am                  Cmaj7 
'Cause after a while and a thousand miles
D                    G
 It all becomes the same

  G                     C 
I am the entertainer, I bring to you my songs
    C                        G/B     C                D 
I'd like to spend a day or two, but I can't stay that long
         G                       C
No, I've got to meet expenses, I got to stay in line
      Cmaj7                 D
Gotta get those fees to the agencies
        Am                       C
And I'd love to stay but there's bills to pay
     D                     G 
So I just don't have the time

  G                     C 
I am the entertainer, I come to do my show
       C                    G/B     C             D
You've heard my latest record, it's been on the radio
       G                                        C
Ah, it took me years to write it, they were the best years of my life
          Cmaj7                 D
It was a beautiful song, but it ran too long
          Am                    C
If you're gonna have a hit, you gotta make it fit
        D                 G
So they cut it down to 3:05

G                         C 
I am the entertainer, the idol of my age
  C                     G/B    C           D 
I make all kinds of money when I go on the stage
           G                           C
Ah, you've seen me in the papers, I've been in the magazines
       Cmaj7       D 
But if I go cold I won't get sold
         Am                     C
I'll get put in the back in the discount rack
      D               G
Like another can of beans

  G(let ring)               C(let ring)
I am the entertainer, and I know just where I stand
 C(let ring)    G/B     C                 D  
Another Serenader and another long-haired band
  G(let ring)               C(let ring)  
Today I am your champion, I may have won your hearts
      Cmaj7                    D
But I know the game, you'll forget my name
  Am                Cmaj7
I won't be here in another year
     D                  G 
If I don't stay on the charts
