I'm not the kind to kiss'n tell but I've been seen with Farrah.
I've never been with any thing less than a nine so fine.
I've been on fire with Sally Field, gone fast with a girl named Bo.
But somehow they just don't end up as mine.
It's a death defying life I lead, I take my chances.
I'd die for a livin' in the movies and TV.
But the hardest thing I ever do is watch my leading ladies,
kiss some other guy while I'm bandaging my knee.
I might fall from a tall building, I might role a brand new car.
'Cause I'm the unknown stuntman who made Redford such a star.
I never spent much time in school, but I tought ladies plenty.
It's true I hire my body out for pay. Hey Hey!
I've gotten burned over Cheryl Tiegs, blown up for Raquel Welch.
But when I wind up hittin' the hay, it's only hay. Hey hay!
I might jump an open drawbridge or Tarzan from a vine.
'Cause I'm the unknown stuntman who made Eastwood look so fine.
They'll never make me president, but I got the best first ladies.
Somedays I got'em as far as the eye can see. Oowee!
A morning dive with Jackie Smith, a crash in the night with Cheryl.
But in the end they never stay with me.
I might fall from a tall building, so Burt Reynolds don't get hurt.
I might leap a mighty canyon, so he can kiss'n flirt.
While that smooth talkers kissin' my girl, I'm just kissin' dirt.
'Cause I'm the lonely stuntman who made a lover out of Burt.
