Basically we met at the movies,
Artistically I wanted to help her,
Maybe write the role I see,
When she’s with me,
On the big screen,
The Actress

But it’s all gone now,
You might think she’s taking it easy,
But she’s needing,
The Actress (the actress),
She takes her last bow,
But really she’s needing,
The acceptance of the crowd,
The Actress (the actress)

Obviously I wanted to make it,
Famously like Marilyn,
So he wrote the role,
And I played it,
On the big screen,
The Hollywood dream,
Oh yeah,
Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

But it’s all gone now,
I was in the movies,
I am the actress,
The Actress (the actress)
