Celluloid heros

	  		D             A           G             D   
Everybody's a dreamer and everybody's a star   
    F#m            Bm                 G              A   
And everybody's in movies, it doesn't matter who you are   
          Bm              F#m   
There are stars in every city   
         G                  A   
In every house and on every street   
           C                   G   
And if you walk down Hollywood Boulevard   
                A             D   
Their names are written in concrete   

      D             A            G                  D    
Don't step on Greta Garbo as you walk down the Boulevard   
    F#m                Bm                    G              A  
She looks so weak and fragile that's why she tried to be so hard   
          Bm                F#m   
But they turned her into a princess   
         G            A   
And they sat her on a throne   
         C                 G  
But she turned her back on stardom  
            A             D    
Because she wanted to be alone   
   
{Refrain}   
        C                        G                   D   
You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard   
C                        G                            D   
Some that you recognize, some that you've hardly even heard of   
C                     G                          D   
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame   
C                      G                    D   
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain   

D             A         G          D    
Rudolph Valentino looks very much alive   
       F#m             Bm              G              A  
And he looks up ladies dresses as they sadly pass him by   
         Bm              F#m   
Avoid stepping on Bela Lugosi   
            G                  A   
'Cause he's liable to turn and bite   
          C              G   
But stand close by Bette Davis   
        A                      D    
Because hers was such a lonely life   

       D                 A      
If you covered him with garbage  
       G                        D     
George Sanders would still have style   
           F#m               Bm                
And if you stamped on Mickey Rooney   
         G                    A  
He would still turn round and smile   
           Bm                     F#m   
But please don't tread on dearest Marilyn  
        G             A  
'Cause she's not very tough   
      C                       G  
She should have been made of iron or steel  
            A                      D    
But she was only made of flesh and blood   
   
{Refrain}   
    C                            G                   D   
You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard   
C                        G                            D   
Some that you recognize, some that you've hardly even heard of   
C                     G                          D   
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame   
C                      G                    D   
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain   

D              A          G             D     
Everybody's a dreamer and everybody's a star   
     F#m            Bm                  G              A         
And everybody's in showbiz, it doesn't matter who you are  
    Bm                 F#m   
And those who are successful   
    G             A   
Be always on your guard   
         C                       G   
Success walks hand in hand with failure   
      A               D    
Along Hollywood Boulevard   

  C                G                  D   
I wish my life was non-stop Hollywood movie show   
   C               G                      D   
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes  
        C                G              D    
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain   
    C                G            D  
And celluloid heroes never really die   
   
        C                        G                   D   
You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard   
C                        G                            D   
Some that you recognize, some that you've hardly even heard of   
C                     G                          D   
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame   
C                      G                    D   
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain   


       C              G                 D 
La la la la... la la la la... la la la la la la   
       C              G                 D 
La la la la... la la la la... la la la la la la 
    C               G              D 
Oh celluloid heroes never feel any pain 
   C                G              D 
Oh celluloid heroes never really die 


  C                G                  D   
I wish my life was non-stop Hollywood movie show   
  C                G                      D   
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes  
        C                 G              D    
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain   
        C             G           D  
And celluloid heroes never really die
