It’s Only A Movie

Cards on the table at midnight
Watch for the hand with the blade
We’re shooting an old cowboy movie
Pan out No. 2 camera fade
Tom, he loves Kitty the cowgirl
But she only lusts for revenge
To kill off the rat, who crippled her Dad
Tom knows that – don’t make amends
Two evils can never make one right
Be sure one evil has already been done
Kitty don’t see quite too clearly
Believes we should take one for one
Director says “Now hold that a minute
A little more light just over there on her face
Shadow her eyes, doubt that sanity lies
Let the public enjoy all of her hate”
It’s only a movie, it’s only a show

It’s only a movie, it’s only a show
Just a celluloid picture wherever you go
Oh, it’s only a movie, it’s only a show

It’s only a movie, it’s only a show
Just a celluloid picture wherever you go
Oh, it’s only a movie, it’s only a show

Now Tom didn’t like all this bullshit
Just making nice films is his trend
To have to whisk her away on his big charger
Ride into the sun at the end
Once again man says “Too easy…
The punters they’ve all been here before
I know what they need, the crooks got to bleed
To make ’em go home – wanting more”
It’s only a movie, it’s only a show

It’s only a movie, it’s only a show
Just a celluloid picture wherever you go
It’s only a movie, it’s only a show
Just a celluloid picture wherever you go
