Jimmy Buffett - It's Midnight And I'm Not Famous Yet

It's Midnight And I'm Not Famous Yet

By: Jimmy Buffett, Steve Goodman

1981

For Barry Hanah

Catch the elevator from the penthouse suite

And take it down to the casino

The god-almighty sound of money movin' round

Can be heard all the way to Reno

Chorus:

Well it's midnight and I'm not famous yet

Tryin' to win it all with one more bet

Nothin' can stop my thirty-two hop

Or my ten dollar yo yo yo

It's midnight, I'm just gettin' ready to roll

(Midnight)

Now Lester Polyester signs another marker

Like the high rollers do

Seven come eleven

His brand new baby needs Gucci shoes

Chorus:

Well it's midnight she's not famous yet

Tryin' to break the bank with one more bet

Nothin' can stop my thirty-two hop

Or my ten dollar yo yo yo

It's midnight, Lester's gettin' ready to roll

Midnight (midnight)

Midnight

(instrumental)

(Midnight)

They're pagin' someone we know, Lester hits a keno

He's not leavin' yet

Vacuum cleaners hummin' lounge act still is strummin'

It's their twenty-fourth set

Well it's midnight they're not famous yet

Tryin' to win it all with one more bet

Nothin' can stop my thirty-two hop

Or my ten dollar yo yo yo

It's midnight, got nowhere to go (Oh oh)

Midnight (midnight)

(Oh oh oh)

Midnight (midnight)

(Oh oh oh, Midnight)

(Oh oh oh, Midnight)

(Oh oh oh, Midnight)

(Oh oh oh)
