All the things you said to me
The manifest and destiny
Well, all of this could go away right now

And everyone was in the band
And I was on another planet
And then you, were all alone

And you wanna be a big shot
You wanna be the big man
You wanna hold a big gun
You gotta have a quick hand
You wanna be the big shot now
The chosen one your mother loved the most
After all

Early morning, still in bed
You hate yourself for what you said
But you could never admit you were wrong

And every song was out of key
And I was in the in-between
And then you, still all alone

And you wanna be a big shot
You wanna be the big man
You wanna place a big bet
You better have a big hand
You wanna be the big shot
You wanna be the only son we love
After all

And you wanna be a big shot
You wanna be the big man
You wanna hold a big gun (Big gun)
You better have a quick hand (Quick hand)
You wanna be the big shot (The big shot)
You wanna be the big man (Big man)
You wanna place a big bet (Big bet)
You better have a sick hand (Sick hand)

You wanna be the big shot now
Big shot now
After all

I'll admit I'm not the biggest fan of this band but this...this is a fantastic song imo.  And my favorite of theirs, no question.

I'm posting a comment because I wanna to be a big shot.
Shades of Loudon Wainwright 3 in this track. Which is not a bad thing.

Not a Lumineers fan at all. Quite overrated really. I feel like they'd still be singing in small bars if it wasn't for Jack White getting their careers going a few years ago.  Guy's voice is not pleasant, instrumentation is somewhat pedantic.  


yep.

and it sucks that it's at least the 2nd or maybe even 3rd lumineers song we've heard on today's mix, which is silly, considering the amount of music/artists in the RP catalog.

Because you had to be a big shot, didn't ya? You had to open up your mouth. You had to be a big shot, didn't ya? All your friends were so knocked out!

I thought my screen was broken - only 1 comment? 1st time I've heard this - so rating a 7 to hit favorites. Then I can listen a couple more times and decide whether it gets changed again.
I love RP's ability to surprise me with new stuff almost every day 
Not digging it.  Not enough to PSD on my first listen.

Long live RP

First comment however

(edit update)
Couple months and listens later giving this a 6 rating.
