Celluloid Heroes

Raymond Douglas Davies / The Kinks: Everybody's in Show-Biz (1972)

 
D A G D
Everybody's a dreamer, and everybody's a star,
F#m Bm G A
And everybody's in movies, it doesn't matter who you are!
Bm F#m G A
There are stars in every city - In ev'ry house and on ev'ry street,
D7 G A D
And if you walk down Hollywood Boulevard - Their names are written in concrete.
 
D A G D
Don't step on Greta Garbo as you walk down the Boulevard;
F#m Bm G A
She looks so weak and fragile that's why she tried to be so hard.
Bm F#m G A
But they turned her into a princess - And they sat her on a throne.
D7 G A D
But she turned her back on stardom - Because she wanted to be alone.
C G D
You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard.
C G D
Some that you recognize, some that you've hardly even heard of.
C G D
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame,
C G D
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain.
 
D A G D
Rudolph Valentino looks very much alive,
F#m Bm G A
And he looks up ladies dresses as they sadly pass him by.
Bm F#m G A
Avoid stepping on Bela Lugosi - 'Cause he's liable to turn and bite!
D7 G A D
But stand close by Bette Davis - Because hers was such a lonely life.
 
D A G D
If you covered him with garbage George Sanders would still have style,
F#m Bm G A
And if you stamped on Mickey Rooney He would still turn round and smile.
Bm F#m G A
But please don't tread on dearest Marilyn - 'Cause she's not very tough.
D7 G A D
She should have been made of iron or steel - But she was only made of flesh and blood.
C G D
You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
C G D
Some that you recognize, some that you've hardly even heard of
C G D
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame
C G D
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain
D A G D
Everybody's a dreamer, and everybody's a star,
F#m Bm G A
And everybody's in show biz, it doesn't matter who you are!
Bm F#m G A
And those who are successful - Be always on your guard,
D7 G A D
Success walks hand in hand with failure - Along Hollywood Boulevard.
bridge
C G D
I wish my life was non-stop Hollywood movie show.
C G D
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes.
C G D
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain,
C G D
And celluloid heroes never really die!
C G D
You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
C G D
Some that you recognize, some that you've hardly even heard of
C G D
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame
C G D
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain
|: C G D :|
La la la la la - la la la la la - la la la la la
C G D C G D
Oh, celluloid heroes never feel any pain - Oh, celluloid heroes never really die.

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