It's Midnight And I'm Not Famous Yet Lyrics

Artist: Jimmy Buffett
Album: Somewhere Over China

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)
