Movie Star

(Bring Back The Real Don Steele)

I'll never be a movie star
A marvel like a sparkling quasar
A charismatic master
I'll never be a millionaire
Amassing castles in the air
Where pretty people gather
I'll never try
Chance has passed me by

I have seen the instant flicker
Frame by frame projected on a screen
Pellucid dream
A celluloid redoubt
Where I hide out in Hollywood
And ride about the neighborhood
Scout mermaids on the beach
Singing each to each
A world beyond my reach

I'll never be a movie star
A marvel like a sparkling quasar
A charismatic master
I'll never be the President
A-hover over troubled government
Enrapt with facts that matter
I'll never try
Chance has passed me by

I've harrowed my hope
Now I'm a scarecrow up a slope
A guardian for harvests sure to follow
The plan is fulfilled
Now the bandit landscape's tilled
So the crops that people reap'll be less hollow

I'll never be a movie star
A marvel like a sparkling quasar
A charismatic master
I'll never be the son of God
Embodiment of cosmic jihad
The boss of what comes after
I'll never be a movie star . . .
