Story behind the song
I wanted to write a song with the energy and urbane feel of Native New Yorker or Cherchez La Femme, and started playing around with Time phrases before I hit on Big Time and thought OK, now let me work in every example of the big time that comes to mind.
Lyrics
Time was I was so small time Love was not for all time It was just a fast time, A pastime And evry minute Had too many seconds in it And every no-count love affair I swore would be the last time until You threw your spotlight On my little piece of shade Lifted me so far above The humdrum life Id made Im an overnight sensation In a ticker tape parade Cause loving you, baby is the BIG TIME Yes love Im at the summit Never more to plummet Ever more transcendent Resplendent Youve made me stellar A twenty-room penthouse dweller The story of my life is now A runaway best seller because You took a drab revue That closed in summer stock Tossed out every tired number Worked around the clock Now Im starring in a Broadway smash With lines around the block Cause loving you, baby is the BIG TIME And I hope they dont get mad at me When I dont thank the academy I can only say whats true I owe it all to you And in truth there are No paparazzi Camped outside the door No interviews, no curtain calls No throngs demanding more All you did was give me everything My lifes worth living for And loving you, baby, is the BIG TIME
