George Michael - Freedom '90

Heaven knows we sure had some fun boy
What a kick just a buddy and me
We had every big shot good-time band on the run boy
We were living in a fantasy

Lana Del Rey - Party Girl

Standing on the rooftop, just out of earshot,
Looking at this gansgter guy,
Thinking he's a hot shot, pouring me a big shot,
Trying to get me drunk and high.

Bushido - Life And Death Of Kenneth Glockler

And you sick brother is still living in poverty
Suddenly the stepfather of Kenneth appears
Playing a big shot manager
Opening a GmbH* behind my back


He can't escape, bullies chase him
They look for a helping hand
Burn the big shot's money
and go knock that fucking ego out

Si la balle dans ma main, alors la balle dans le filet
Salope, je suis la D, tu ne peux pas m'offenser
Je suis Mr. Big Shot, ces putes se soûlent en me lâchant
Je suis trop respecté

Carlos Gardel - We are even

Poor, fleeting achievements,
Will become a long line of wealth and pleasure
I hope the big-shot who now maintains you
Has deep pockets

In my disappointment and pain what else could I expect
I want to stand in front of God or the devil with a pure heart!
I never was a big shot, allowed to do almost everything
Or a rich family's stain, who can just go for broke

If the ball in my hand, then the ball in the net
Bitch, I'm the D, can't no offense dunk on me
I'm Mr. Big Shot, these hoes get drunk off me
I'm overrespected

The good life I'd like to taste

Your children won't be short of anything

To stop acting like a big shot and give up
If you see me catching fire against the wall
