    KMFDM - Inane

    Chew it all up - Turn it around - Give the meaning a twist - Spit it back out
    Repulsive - Corrosive - Enticing - Confusing - Abusive - Elusive - Provoking
    Amusing - Mangled and ground - Decomposed and destroyed - Whatever was found
    We invented the sound Prepared to order - Cooked to perfection - According to taste - No dissatisfaction
    German engineering - Astounding ingenuity - Over a decade of conceptual continuity
    KMFDM - A constant intrusion - It poisons your blood - You need an infusion
    Like everything else it's completely inane
    Profoundly profane and it drives me insane
    KMFDM - What do you know - Don't blow your top now, here we go!
    KMFDM - What's the deal
    You're so naive, come on get real!
    KMFDM - For what your money can buy
    Leave your angst behind and fly sky-high!
    KMFDM - Make your choice
    Celebrate chaos - Get into the noise!
    KMFDM - Nihilistic and free
    UAIOE for you and me
    Help us, save us, take us away
    KMFDM - Make my day
    KMFDM - What's the story
    Sex on the flag, split and glory
    KMFDM can't suck hard enough
    Have a little more - You just love that stuff

    MDFMK - Rabble Rouser

    System breakdown imminent,
    Nature's gone belligerent,
    Pilot error pre-programmed,
    Oh, that human element. Driven by testosterone,
    Adrenaline & pheromone,
    Crowning glory of creation,
    Super-human incarnation.Failure is man's fate,
    Blacklist of mistakes,
    Nothing's what it seems,
    Blown to smithereens.Commandeer own your fear,
    Associate, and integrate,
    A rabble rouser in your face,
    A proclamation of defense,
    The outrage of the innocent,
    Unyeilding to the consequence,
    A rabble rouser to the end.Fight! rabble rouser!
    Fight! rabble rouser!Determined to the end,
    Ruthlessly & violent,
    Ruler of the earth,
    Subordinate the universe.Commandeer own your fear,
    Associate, and integrate,
    A rabble rouser in your face,
    A proclamation of defense,
    The outrage of the innocent,
    Unyeilding to the consequence,
    A rabble rouser to the end.Fight! rabble rouser!
    Fight!
    Fight! System breakdown imminent,
    Nature's gone belligerent,
    Pilot error pre-programmed,
    Oh, that human element.Livin' out the big illusion,
    Evolution revolution,
    Time and time and time and again,
    Life is short and dog is man.Commandeer own your fear,
    Associate, and integrate,
    A rabble rouser in your face,
    A proclamation of defense,
    The outrage of the innocent,
    Unyeilding to the consequence,
    A rabble rouser to the end. Fight!
    Fight! rabble rouser!

    MDFMK - Stare At The Sun

    The ego that feeds you
    Ties you up and suffocates
    Your favorite little monkey
    Drags you down and complicates you
    Love and hate
    The combination
    Won't survive the separation
    Soul and body co-exist
    Face the antagonist At the right place
    At the right time
    How does it feel Don't take this the wrong way
    But nothing is for free
    It's only an illusion
    Impossibility
    So don't take this the wrong way
    Don't hold it to up scrutiny
    You got more than you could ask for
    But none of what you need
    When you stare at the sun
    What do you see The dislocation confusion
    Total lack of destination
    Nothing left to ask
    Greed exceeds all moderation
    Mind over matter
    The singing lady's getting fatter
    Lock the bunker
    Kill the lights
    Reality's kept outsideWhen the right price
    Makes the right deal
    You don't disagree
    Down the wrong way
    Of a one-way
    Dead-end street A million excuses to avoid compatibility
    A humble disposition
    Wrapped up in animosity
    Suffer the dilemma
    Choose involuntarily
    Stare at the sun
    What do you see

    Marylin Manson - (s)aint

    I don't care if your world is ending today
    I wasn't invited to it anyway
    You said I tasted famous, so I drew you a heart But now I'm not an artist I'm a f*cking work of art
    I've got an F and a C and I got a K too
    And the only thing missing is a b*tch like yoU You wanted perfekt
    You got your perfekt
    But now I'm too perfekt for someone like you
    I was a dandy in your ghetto with
    A snow white smile and you'll
    Never be as perfekt whatever you do What's my name, what's my name?
    Hold the S because I am an AINT
    What's my name, what's my name?
    Hold the S because I am an AINT I am a bonetop, a death's head
    On a mopstick
    You infected me, took diamonds
    I took all your sh*t
    Your "sell-by-date" expired,
    So you had to be sold
    I'm a suffer-genius and
    Vivi-sex symbol You wanted perfekt
    You got your perfekt
    But now I'm too perfekt for someone like you
    I was a dandy in your ghetto with
    A snow white smile and you'll
    Never be as perfekt whatever you doWhat's my name, what's my name?
    Hold the S because I am an AINT
    What's my name, what's my name?
    Hold the S because I am an AINT I've got an F and a C and I got a K too
    And the only thing missing is a b*tch like yoU
    I've got an F and a C and I got a K too
    And the only thing missing is a b*tch like yoU
    I am a dandy in the ghetto with a snow white smile
    Super-ego b*tch, I've been evil awhile
    I am a dandy in the ghetto with a snow white smile
    Super-ego b*tch, I've been evil awhile
    What's my name, what's my name?
    Hold the S because I am an AINT
    What's my name, what's my name?
    Hold the S because I am an AINT

    Marylin Manson - slutgarden

    I'll pretend that I want you
    For what is on the inside
    But when I get inside, I'll just want to get out
    I'm your first and last deposit
    Through sickness and in hell
    I'll never promise you a garden
    You'll just water me down
    I can't believe that you are for real
    But I don't care as long as you're mine When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey, hey)
    When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey, hey) I'm unsafe, unsafe
    I won't repent and so
    I memorize the words to the porno movies
    It's the only thing I want to believe
    I memorize the words to the porno movies
    This is a new religion to me I'm a VCR funeral of
    Dead-memory waste and
    My smile is a chainlink fence
    that I have put up
    Love the enemy, my love is thee enemy
    They say they don't want fame
    But they get famous
    When we f*ck When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey, hey)
    When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey, hey) I'm unsafe, unsafe
    I won't repent and so
    I memorize the words to the porno movies
    It's the only thing I want to believe
    I memorize the words to the porno movies
    This is a new religion to me I never believed the devil was real
    But god couldn't make someone filthy as you When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey, hey)
    When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey, hey)
    When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey, hey)
    When I said we
    you know I meant me and
    When I said sweet
    I meant dirty (hey, hey) You are the church
    I am the steeple,
    When we f*ck
    We're all god's people
    You are the church
    I am the steeple,
    When we f*ck
    We're all god's people

    Alice In Chains - Nutshell

    We chase misprinted lies
    We face the path of time
    And yet I fight
    And yet I fight
    This battle all alone
    No one to cry to
    No place to call home My gift of self is raped
    My privacy is raked
    And yet I find
    And yet I find
    Repeating in my head
    If I can't be my own
    I'd feel better dead

    Definitely not "As Tears go By" by the Rolling Stones, that just makes me sad.

    Barry Manilow - Not What You See. I love these lyrics - great song too.

    "Wait a minute baby
    I'll be right back
    I just gotta talk
    to a friend
    for a couple of minutes

    I see you looking
    at the two of us
    and what do you see
    the oldest couple at the Mayflower
    Esther and Me

    I push her in the chair
    I know she'd walk
    if she could
    she says "Take your pills"
    as if they do any good

    I'll bet you think
    that what you're looking
    at is all we are
    two old people forgetting
    the way we were
    Sonny, no one is
    what they look like
    everyone's so much more
    Sonny, no one is
    what they look like
    and we're not what
    you see that's for sure

    You should have known her before
    you should have known her before
    legs she had legs
    that made the guys drool
    and her waist was as small
    as your neck
    and the face and the hair
    and the rest of her
    and when I look at her now
    I still see her young and beautiful
    she's my girl and I'm her Joe
    and we're not what you see"

    The rhythm just infected my mind long before I even payed attention to the lyrics. Infectious rhymes.

    Verse 2:

    Bridge:

    Jethro Tull
    "Skating Away on the Thin Ice of the New Day"

    Meanwhile back in the Year One - when you belonged to no-one -
    You didn't stand a chance son, if your pants were undone.
    'Cause you were bred for Humanity and sold to Society -
    One day you'll wake up in the Present Day -
    A million generations removed from expectations
    Of being who you really want to be.

    Skating Away-ay! Skating Away-ay!
    Skating Away-ay on the Thin Ice of the New Day-ay-ay-ay-ay.
    Ay-ay-ay-ay!

    So as you push off from the shore, won't you turn your head once more -
    And make your peace with everyone?
    For those who choose to stay, will live just one more day -
    To do the things they should have done.
    And as you cross the wilderness, spinning in your emptiness:
    You feel you have to pray.
    Looking for a sign that the Universal Mind(!)
    Has written you into the Passion Play.

    Skating Away-ay! Skating Away-ay!
    Skating Away-ay on the Thin Ice of the New Day-ay-ay-ay-ay.
    Ay-ay-ay-ay!

    And as you cross the Circle Line, well, the ice-wall creaks behind -
    You're a rabbit on the run.

    And the silver splinters fly in the corner of your eye -
    Shining in the setting sun.
    Well, do you ever get the feeling that the Story's too damn real and in
    the present tense?
    Or that everybody's on the stage, and it seems like
    You're the only person sitting in the audience?

    Skating Away-ay! Skating Away-ay!
    Skating Away-ay on the Thin Ice of the New Day-ay-ay-ay-ay.
    Ay-ay-ay-ay!

    Skating Away-ay!
    Skating Away-ay!
    Skating Away!

    Bob Dylan - Tangled Up In Blue

    Early one morning the sun was shining
    I was laying in bed
    Wond'ring if she'd changed it all
    If her hair was still red
    Her folks they said our lives together
    Sure was gonna be rough
    They never did like Mama's homemade dress
    Papa's bankbook wasn't big enough
    And I was standing on the side of the road
    Rain falling on my shoes
    Heading out for the East Coast
    Lord knows I've paid some dues getting through
    Tangled up in blue.

    She was married when we first meet
    Soon to be divorced
    I helped her out of a jam I guess
    But I used a little too much force
    We drove that car as far as we could
    Abandoned it out West
    Split it up on a dark sad night
    Both agreeing it was best
    She turned around to look at me
    As I was walking away
    I heard her say over my shoulder
    "We'll meet again someday on the avenue"
    Tangled up in blue.

    I had a job in the great north woods
    Working as a cook for a spell
    But I never did like it all that much
    And one day the ax just fell
    So I drifted down to New Orleans
    Where I happened to be employed
    Working for a while on a fishing boat
    Right outside of Delacroix
    But all the while I was alone
    The past was close behind
    I seen a lot of women
    But she never escaped my mind and I just grew
    Tangled up in blue.

    She was working in a topless place
    And I stopped in for a beer
    I just kept looking at her side of her face
    In the spotlight so clear
    And later on as the crowd thinned out
    I's just about to do the same
    She was standing there in back of my chair
    Said to me "Don't I know your name ?"
    I muttered something underneath my breath
    She studied the lines on my face
    I must admit I felt a little uneasy
    When she bent down to tie the laces of my shoe
    Tangled up in blue.

    She lit a burner on the stove and offered me a pipe
    "I thought you'd never say hello" she said
    "You look like the silent type"
    Then she opened up a book of poems
    And handed it to me
    Written by an Italian poet
    From the thirteenth century
    And every one of them words rang true
    And glowed like burning coal
    Pouring off of every page
    Like it was written in my soul from me to you
    Tangled up in blue

    I lived with them on Montague Street
    In a basement down the stairs
    There was music in the caf,s at night
    And revolution in the air
    Then he started into dealing with slaves
    And something inside of him died
    She had to sell everything she owned
    And froze up inside
    And when finally the bottom fell out
    I became withdrawn
    The only thing I knew how to do
    Was to keep on keeping on like a bird that flew
    Tangled up in blue.

    So now I'm going back again
    I got to get her somehow
    All the people we used to know
    They're an illusion to me now
    Some are mathematicians
    Some are carpenter's wives
    Don't know how it all got started
    I don't what they're doing with their lives
    But me I'm still on the road
    Heading for another joint
    We always did feel the same
    We just saw it from a different point of view
    Tangled up in Blue.

    Grateful Dead - Throwing Stones

    Picture a bright blue ball just spinning, spinning free
    Dizzy with eternity.
    Paint it with a skin of sky, brush in some clouds and sea
    Call it home for you and me.

    A peaceful place or so it looks from space
    A closer look reveals the human race.
    Full of hope, full of grace, is the human face.
    But afraid, we may our home to waste.

    There's a fear down here we can't forget hasn't got a name just yet
    Always awake, always around singing ashes to ashes all fall down.

    Now watch as the ball revolves and the nighttime calls
    And again the hunt begins and again the bloodwind calls
    By and by again, the morning sun will rise
    But the darkness never goes from some men's eyes.

    It strolls the sidewalks and it rolls the streets
    Stalking turf, dividing up meat.
    Nightmare spook, piece of heat, you and me, you and me.

    Click, flashblade in ghetto night. Rudies looking for a fight.
    Rat cat alley roll them bones. Need that cash to feed that jones
    And the politicians throwing stones
    Singing ashes, ashes all fall down.

    Commissars and pin-striped bosses role the dice
    Any way they fall guess who gets to pay the price.
    Money green or proletarian gray, selling guns instead of food today.
    So the kids they dance, they shake their bones
    While the politicians throwing stones
    Singing ashes, ashes all fall down.

    Heartless powers try to tell us what to think
    If the spirit's sleeping, then the flesh is ink.
    History's page, it is thusly carved in stone
    The future's here, we are it, we are on our own.

    If the game is lost then we're all the same
    No one left to place or take the blame.
    We will leave this place an empty stone
    Or this shinning ball of bule we can call our home

    So the kids they dance, they shake their bones
    While the politicians are throwing stones
    Singing ashes, ashes all fall down.

    Shipping powders back and forth
    Singing "black goes south while white comes north"
    And the whole world full of petty wars
    Singing "I got mine and you got yours."
    And the current fashions set the pace.
    Lose your step, fall out of grace.
    And the radical he rant and rage,
    Singing "someone got to turn the page"

    And the rich man in his summer home,
    Singing "Just leave well enough alone"
    But his pants are down, his cover's blown

    And the politicians are throwing stones
    So the kids they dance they shake their bones
    Cause its all too clear we're on our own
    Picture a bright blue ball just spinning, spinning free
    It's dizzying, the possibilities. Ashes, Ashes all fall down.

    Bruce C*ckburn - Call It Democracy

    padded with power here they come
    international loan sharks backed by the guns
    of market hungry military profiteers
    whose word is a swamp and whose brow is smeared
    with the blood of the poor

    who rob life of its quality
    who render rage a necessity
    by turning countries into labour camps
    modern slavers in drag as champions of freedom

    sinister cynical instrument
    who makes the gun into a sacrament --
    the only response to the deification
    of tyranny by so-called developed nations'
    idolatry of ideology

    north south east west
    kill the best and buy the rest
    it's just spend a buck to make a buck
    you don't really give a flying f#ck
    about the people in misery

    IMF dirty MF
    takes away everything it can get
    always making certain that there's one thing left
    keep them on the hook with insupportable debt

    see the paid-off local bottom feeders
    passing themselves off as leaders
    kiss the ladies shake hands with the fellows
    open for business like a cheap bordello

    and they call it democracy
    and they call it democracy
    and they call it democracy
    and they call it democracy

    see the loaded eyes of the children too
    trying to make the best of it the way kids do
    one day you're going to rise from your habitual feast
    to find yourself staring down the throat of the beast
    they call the revolution

    IMF dirty MF
    takes away everything it can get
    always making certain that there's one thing left
    keep them on the hook with insupportable debt


    Stolen Land

    From Tierra del Fuego to Ungava Bay
    the history of betrayal continues to today
    the spirit of Almighty Voice, the ghost of Anna Mae
    call like thunder from the mountains -- you can hear them say
    it's a stolen land

    Apartheid in Arizona, slaughter in Brazil
    if bullets don't get good PR there's other ways to kill
    kidnap all the children, put 'em in a foreign system
    bring them up in no-man's land where no one really wants them
    it's a stolen land

    stolen land -- but it's all we've got
    stolen land -- and there's no going back
    stolen land -- and we'll never forget
    stolen land -- and we're not through yet

    In my mind I catch a picture -- big black raven in the sky
    looking at the ocean -- sail reflected in black eye --
    sail as white as heroin, white like weathered bones --
    rum and guns and smallpox gonna change the face of home
    in this stolen land...

    If you're like me you'd like to think we've learned from our mistakes
    enough to know we can't play god with others' lives at stake
    so now we've all discovered the world wasn't only made for whites
    what step are you gonna take to try and set things right
    in this stolen land

    stolen land -- but it's all we've got
    stolen land -- and there's no going back
    stolen land -- and we'll never forget
    stolen land -- and we're not through yet

    Robbie Robertson

    Somewhere Down The Crazy River


    Yea, I can see it now
    The distant red neon shivered in the heat
    I was feeling like a stranger in a strange land
    You know where people play games with the night
    God, it was too hot to sleep

    I followed the sound of a jukebox coming from a levee
    All of a sudden I could hear somebody whistling
    Fromright behind me
    I turned around and she said
    "Why do you always end up down at Nick's Cafe?"
    I said "I don't know, the wind just kind of pushed me this way."
    She said "Hang the rich."

    Catch the blue train
    To places never been before
    Look for me
    Somewhere down the crazy river
    Somewhere down the crazy river

    Catch the blue train
    All the way to Kokomo
    You can find me
    Somewhere down the crazy river
    Somewhere down the crazy river

    Take a picture of this
    The fields are empty, abandoned '59 Chevy
    Laying in the back seat listening to Little Willie John
    Yea, that's when time stood still
    You know, I think I'm gonna go down to Madam X
    And let her read my mind
    She said "That Voodoo stuff don't do nothing for me."

    I'm a man with a clear destination
    I'm a man with a broad imagination
    You fog the mind, you stir the soul
    I can't find, ... no control

    Wait, did you hear that?
    Oh this is sure stirring up some ghosts for me
    She said "There's one thing you've got to learn
    Is not to be afraid of it."
    I said "No, I like it, I like it, it's good."
    She said "You like it now
    But you'll learn to love is later."

    I been spellbound - falling in trances
    I been spellbound - falling in trances
    You give me shivers - chills and fever
    I been spellbound - somewhere down the crazy river

    Robbie Robertson - Hold Back the Dawn

    The sun was going down
    Over Echo Park
    Wet raven hair
    Glowing in the dark
    And that's when the fever would rise
    And lord what a look in her eyes
    From the moment that she blows out the light
    We'd be lost in the forever night

    Hold back the dawn
    Hold back the dawn
    Won't you raise up your hand
    And hold back the dawn

    I dreamt if I could lay you upon this bed of straw
    We may break the rules but we don't break the law
    Come across but the river's too wide
    Come across but the river's too high
    Over by the fountain where we meet
    I will lay silver roses at your feet

    Hold back the dawn
    Hold back the dawn
    Won't you raise up your hand
    And hold back the dawn

    Now I have seen a painting
    Old and hanging in a frame
    And that painting was of you
    Now how can you explain
    From another place in time
    Done many years ago
    Why I'm haunted by this vision
    Guess we'll never know
    Then she turned and whispered in my ear
    Can you feel my heart beat

    Won't you raise
    Won't you raise up
    Won't you raise up your hand
    And hold back the dawn

    Robbie Robertson - Day of Reckoning (Burnin' for You)

    In this dusty little railroad town
    Smack in the heart of the bible belt
    Where nothing ever changes
    And nothing remains the same
    When first I saw the raven
    Lean against the wind
    I said
    Who's that girl
    With the tattoo on her skin?

    I followed her home
    Lives down by the water
    My friend Teddy told me
    She's the Frenchman's daughter

    On this day of reckoning
    I'm riding shotgun with you
    Yeah you
    Tangled twisted strands of love
    Hanging from above
    I'm burnin' for you
    Ooh I'm burnin' for you

    Oh we were first time lovers
    In a secret rendezvous
    Burnin' burnin'
    Burnin'
    Burnin' for you

    When I come knocking on her front door
    The neighbour said she don't live there no more
    Well she moved from the country down to the city
    Where the scene is dark and the street are gritty
    In the hustle and bustle and all the commotion
    She got addicted to the locomotion

    On this day of reckoning
    By the old wooden bridge
    I wait for you
    Tangled twisted strands of love
    Hanging from above

    I'm burnin' for you
    Ooh I'm burnin' for you
    Oh we were first time lovers
    In a secret rendezvous
    I'm burnin'
    Burnin'
    Burnin'
    Burnin' for you

    I remember the smell of the burning leaves
    And we were making love
    She was like a young Georgia O'Keefe
    From another time

    In an old abandoned railroad shack
    One should never go
    Where anything can happen
    When the Zephyr blows

    On this day of reckoning
    I'm calling for you
    Yeah you
    Tangled twisted strands of love
    Hanging from above

    I'm burnin' for you
    Ooh I'm burnin' for you
    Oh we were first time lovers
    In a secret rendezvous
    I'm burnin'
    Burnin'
    Burnin'
    Burnin' for you

    The phone rings
    She said I can't tell you where I'm calling from
    Cause my papa's on the lam
    For something shady that he's done

    There hangs a tale of love

    For the first time
    For the first time

    Your on a roll Joe great stuff.

    Who could forget this classic.:D

    Sid & Marty Krofft's Pufnstuff

    Opening Lyrics: H.R. Pufnstuf, who's your friend when things get rough?
    H.R. Pufnstuf, can't do a little, 'cause you can't do enough

    Once upon a summertime
    Just a dream from yesterday
    A boy and his magic golden flute
    Heard a boat from off the bay
    "Come and play with me, Jimmy
    Come and play with me
    And I will take you on a trip
    Far across the sea"

    But the boat belonged to a kooky old witch
    Who had in mind the flute to snitch
    From her Vroom Broom in the sky
    She watched her plans materialize
    She waved her wand
    The beautiful boat was gone
    The sky grew dark
    The sea grew rough
    The boat sailed on and on and on and on

    But Pufnstuf was watching, too
    And knew exactly what to do
    He saw the witch's boat attack
    And how the boy was fighting back
    He called his Rescue Racer Crew
    As often they'd rehearsed
    And off to save the boy they flew
    But who would get there first?

    But now the boy had washed ashore
    Puf arrived to save the day
    Which made the witch so mad and sore
    She shook her fist and screamed away

    H.R. Pufnstuf, who's your friend when things get rough?
    H.R. Pufnstuf, can't do a little, 'cause you can't do enough

    Ending Theme Lyrics: Whoa, I got, you got, everybody do got
    Someone who cares by the name of
    H.R. Pufnstuf, where'd you go when thing get rough?
    H.R. Pufnstuf, well, you can't do a little 'cause you can't do enough

    Thanks! When it comes to lyrics that evoke great imagery and emotion, Dylan and The Band (Robertson) were among the best.

    With HR Pufnstuff, you're dating yourself - and me!

    Next thing you'll be posting Sigmeund and the Seamonster lyrics... gotta love drug inspired children's programming!

    This one for all the movie lovers.

    The Kinks
    Celluloid Heroes


    Everybody’s a dreamer and everybody’s a star,
    And everybody’s in movies, it doesn’t matter who you are.
    There are stars in every city,
    In every house and on every street,
    And if you walk down hollywood boulevard
    Their names are written in concrete!

    Don’t step on greta garbo as you walk down the boulevard,
    She looks so weak and fragile that’s why she tried to be so hard
    But they turned her into a princess
    And they sat her on a throne,
    But she turned her back on stardom,
    Because she wanted to be alone.

    You can see all the stars as you walk down hollywood boulevard,
    Some that you recognise, some that you’ve hardly even heard of,
    People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame,
    Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain.
    Rudolph valentino, looks very much alive,
    And he looks up ladies’ dresses as they sadly pass him by.
    Avoid stepping on bela lugosi
    ’cos he’s liable to turn and bite,
    But stand close by bette davis
    Because hers was such a lonely life.
    If you covered him with garbage,
    George sanders would still have style,
    And if you stamped on mickey rooney
    He would still turn round and smile,
    But please don’t tread on dearest marilyn
    ’cos she’s not very tough,
    She should have been made of iron or steel,
    But she was only made of flesh and blood.

    You can see all the stars as you walk down hollywood boulevard,
    Some that you recognise, some that you’ve hardly even heard of.
    People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame,
    Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain.

    Everybody’s a dreamer and everybody’s a star
    And everybody’s in show biz, it doesn’t matter who you are.

    And those who are successful,
    Be always on your guard,
    Success walks hand in hand with failure
    Along hollywood boulevard.

    I wish my life was a non-stop hollywood movie show,
    A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes,
    Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain
    And celluloid heroes never really die.

    You can see all the stars as you walk along hollywood boulevard,
    Some that you recognise, some that you’ve hardly even heard of,
    People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame,
    Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain.

    Oh celluloid heroes never feel any pain
    Oh celluloid heroes never really die.

    I wish my life was a non-stop hollywood movie show,
    A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes,
    Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain
    And celluloid heroes never really die.
