I Make This Showbiz Life Look Easy
(Webster/Wolff)

A Renaissance Man of the travelin' show
Doin' it all wherever we go
Ferris wheel fixin', fryin' things on sticks
Off to the midway for some magic tricks
Hammin' it up, barkin' lines so cheesy
I make this showbiz life look easy

When I see cute girls I give 'em a wink
Cuddle up close with a shakeup drink
Conversation and good company
I might invite 'em back to my lil' RV
My kind of girl likes her man extra greasy
I make this showbiz life look easy

Greasy clown paint, greasy ride gears
Greasy fried dough for elephant ears
Sell you a ticket, guess your weight
Step right up to win a prize for your date

I laugh at li'l punks who call me names
And think they're gonna win 'em one of my games
But trust me I can do much worse
They get on a ride, and I'll throw it in reverse
Mess 'round with me, and you'll feel so queasy
I make this showbiz life look easy

Gotta wake up, gotta tear down
Get this show to the next town
It's a hard life wherever we go
But it's a step up from the circus sideshow

It's dirty, grimy, kinda sordid and seedy
Awful bawdy and sometimes sleazy
I make this showbiz life look easy

Well, I make this showbiz life look easy

Hey Wolf,

Nice easy listening song, nice groove, nice vocals.

What jumped out at me was the intro--which seemed abbreviated for the style of intro. I know everyone is preaching short intros which I agree in many cases, but I think your sax needs to duplicate it's run once more in the intro to give folks a chance to get into the feel and rhythm better before falling off into the more subdued 1st verse. You could go the other direction and keep the intro even shorter not even using the sax, just a one two three go. I think though with this song, a repeating sax run would be a better launch--JMO. Nice sax though out the song however. I might opt for a little less mellow on the keyboard to brighten it up as well, again, JMO. Just a couple of ideas for you to "use or lose."

Interesting lyrics, not a subject used very often for sure.
You have a real nice song here, I enjoyed it! Nice job.

steady-eddie.

Hi Wolf,

You have a great sound in both your vocals and the breezy light melody. I am not a musician so I really can't comment on your music except that I loved it. Agreeing with Eddie in that you don't hear many songs about the carnival life.

Great job!!

Best Days,
Bryan
