Alice Cooper – King Of The Silver Screen lyrics

By day I’m a workin’ man,

Layin’ bricks or layin’ pipe.

I don’t stand out in a crowd;

Just look like one of the guys.

Little do they know,

When I’m alone in bed at night,

I become the King of the Silver Screen.

I stare at the ceiling there;

I know where I belong.

I two step with Fred Astaire or

Fighting old King Kong.

I can be any hero at all;

Zorro or Don Juan.

I know I’m the King of the Silver Screen.

Hollywood movies keep flashin’ across my mind.

I could’ve been Valentino if I was born in another time.

I might be solving a case or swinging from a tree.

Share a joke with Crosby and Hope;

We’re such good friends, you see.

Even dazzle the Academy with my versatility.

‘Cause I’m the King of the Silver Screen.

Hollywood movies keep flashin’ across my mind.

I could’ve been Errol Flynn

If I was born in another time.

I could’ve been a star.

I could’ve been a star.

I could’ve played that part.

But Hollywood movies keep flashin’ before my eyes.

I could’ve been Greta Garbo

If I was born in another time.

I wake the very next day

Go on back to work.

I’m just a face in a crowd;

Another average jerk.

And all the guys on the building site look at me flirt.

Because I’m the Queen of the Silver.

Recitation:

Yes, I’m the Queen of the Silver Screen.

I admit it to all my fellow workers.

I don’t care any more. I’m tired of closets.

I’m gonna eat my makeup for lunch today.

Just stop hittin’ me again. All right guys?

I’m going to Hollywood to be a starlet.

I know I’m 240 pounds and play center

For the Detroit Lions.

I don’t care any more.

I like makeup and dresses and Hollywood.

I’ll make somebody a great little wife.

"Frankly, Scarlet, I don’t give a damn."
