What becomes a legend most
when she's alone in a hotel lobby
What becomes a legend most
some bad champagne and some foreign bottled beer

What becomes a legend most
when the musicians have come and then leave her
What becomes a legend most
besides being a legendary star

What becomes a legend most
lying in bed cold and regal
What becomes a legend most
lying in bed watching a talk show on TV

What becomes a legend most
fifty days in fifty cities
And everyone says she looks pretty
at least as pretty as a legend should

Fifty days can wear you down
fifty cities flying by
A different man in each different hotel
and if you're not careful, word can get around

What becomes a legend most
not a bed, that is half empty
Not a heart, that is left empty
that's not pretty, not pretty at all

What becomes a legend most
when she's lying in her hotel room
What becomes a legend most
well baby, tonight it's you (tonight it's you)
Baby, tonight it's you

(What becomes a legend most, sha-la-la-la-la) Baby, it's you
(what becomes a legend most, sha-la-la-la-la) maybe tomorrow
(What becomes a legend most, sha-la-la-la-la) Baby, it's you
(what becomes a legend most, sha-la-la-la-la)
(What becomes a legend most, sha-la-la-la-la)
(what becomes a legend most, sha-la-la-la-la)
(What becomes a legend most, sha-la-la-la-la)
(what becomes a legend most, sha-la-la-la-la)
