ACTRESS Lyrics

Artist: Carly Simon
Album: Bedroom Tapes

ACTRESS
WRITER CARLY SIMON

Some day I'm going to grow up And be every man's dream
Some day I'm going to grow up And forget this sad little me
I'm going to shine in the spotlight Wear sexy clothes
Be somebody everybody wants to meet And no one ever really knows
No one will ever know me I'm an actress through and through
And to my bones I'm an actress through and through
And to my bones Critics will adore me At least they will at first
But you see I already know this So it can't never really hurt
And if it does, I'm an actress I'll play it nonchalant
In the total scheme of things it's insignificant (sure I can take the knocks)
Cause I'm an actress through and through And to my bones
I'm an actress through and through And to my bones
I may not be that pretty now But who's the referee
Standards of beauty Will be redefined because of me
And then they'll be the scandals
Everywhere my name Men will jump from balconies
And I'll just shrug and take the blame (yeah, they'll say I died for love)
Cause I'm an actress through and through
And to my bones Well, I'm an actress through and through
And to my bones My acceptance speech will be a milestone
Never will such a star Have ever graced the microphone
And of course I'll thank my agent The way they always do
Though I could have done it without him And that goes for the Academy too
And the makeup people and the lighting designers and everybody else
Cause I'm an actress through and through
And to my bones I'm an actress through and through
And to my bones I'm an actress yeah, yeah, yeah
I'll be gracious to the lesser stars And generous to the unknowns
And if another actress threatens My position on the throne
Well, I don't know exactly what I'll do
I don't exactly know But I know that it could turn into
One of my most poignant roles
Everyone will have their handkerchiefs out
And they'll have to leave the theater early
And then they'll go home
And what'll they do?
They`ll have a big glass of alcohol
Cause I'm an actress through and through
And to my bones
And if I make it to the top I won't be overthrown
I'm an actress ah, yeah, yeah
