    No talent hick from the sticks dreams about being famous in Hollywood. Takes all those "You can be a Movie Star too!" acting and voice classes. But, he actually does get lucky and makes good! Gets all his big ego dreamed of, and why? Ask John Holmes. Ah, who knows, it's funny. PG has a great sense of humor. It's all over his lyrics and I think people tend to overlook that. You can find on his 2nd album, scratch...."Wonderful day in our one way world"...
    There's an old man on the floor so I summon my charm,
    I say, "Hey scumbag, has there been an alarm?"
    He says "Yeah, I been selling off eternal youth,
    They all got afraid, 'cos I'm the living proof.
    My name is Einstein, do you know time is a curve?"
    I said, "Stop, old man! You've got a nerve,
    'cos there's only one rule that I observe:
    Time is money, and money I serve."

    Or, 1st album..."Excuse me, You're wearing out my joie de vie."

    Big Time is just a funny song about someone dreaming about excess being success and what he thinks makes him important. You know, like we all do.
