Imagine my shock.

lyrics

I bet Shakespeare was a player
He had his pick of all the chorus boys
This used to be my town
I used to get around
Now I'm stuck here between these windowless walls
While all those bastards are denying it all
Stop acting so offended
This didn't start with me
The casting couch bit is older than time
They knew the routine
They were standing in line
Baby take a number
You're not my only customer
You wanna make a movie
I bet you have a screenplay
Everyone comes to this town with a dream
That the cheers and applause will drown out all the screams
You wanna be a pop star
I'll introduce you to some people
I loved you in that one thing
Now let's see you dressed in nothing
Don't you dare pretend this is your first rodeo
Reliable sources say you're ready to go
This is how business is done dear
You knew that when you came here
These streets are made of mayhem
The roads are paved with failures
Used to have a table with my name on a plaque
Til they rolled me like a drunk and knifed me in the back
No one will remember this
No one really cares
A hundred years on they'll remember my name
My work is immortal
It'll outlast my shame
You’re nothing but a footnote
Art lives on forever
Don't push me I'll start talking
Piss me off and I'll start naming names
And now they're all acting like they hadn't a clue
Don't let them fool you baby everyone knew
You know Chaplin was a player
He had his way with all the chorus girls
