(Action!)

I had a dream on a back lot
And saw my life like a long shot
Of smiling faces in a picture parade
With all the stills from the films that you made
That we would see in the Essoldo
After drinking coffee at the Giocondo

Elstree, remember me
I had a part in a B-movie
I played a man from history
Elstree, ah, look at me
(oh, wo-oh)
Now I work for the bbc
(oh, wo-oh)
Life is not what it used to be

I took no dives in the fight scene
I had a stuntman keep my suit clean
There's no technology to fake-up a song
They stop the orchestra if you get it wrong

Elstree, remember me
I had a part in a B-movie
I played a man from history
Elstree, ah, look at me
(oh, wo-oh)
Now I work for the bbc
(oh, wo-oh)
Life is not what it used to be

Elstree!

They made a field into a war zone
I beat the enemy on my own
All the bullets just went over my head
There's no reality and no one dead in...

Elstree, remember me
I had a part in a B-Movie
I played a man from history
Elstree
(oh, wo-oh)
(oh, wo-oh)
Elstree
(oh, wo-oh)
(oh, wo-oh)

Elstree

Elstree (oh, wo-oh)
(oh-wo-oh)

Elstree

(Cut!)
