ACTION
I had a dream on a back lot
I saw my life like a long shot
I smile at faces in a picture parade
of all the stills from the films that you've made
and we would see me a ????
up there drinking coffee on the G O condo

Elstree, Remember me
I had a part in a B movie
I played a man from history
Elstree, I look at me
Now I work for the BBC
Life is not what it used to be

I took no dives in the fight scene
I had a stuntman keep my suit clean
there's no technology could make up the song
they stop the orchestra and you get it wrong

elstree, remember me
I had a part in a B movie
I played a man from history
Elstree, I look at me
Now I work for the BBC
Life is not what it used to be
Elstree

They made a field into a war zone
I beat the enemy on my own
all the bullets just went over my head
there's no reality and no one dead

elstree, remember me
I had a part in a B movie
I played a man from history
Elstree, I look at me
now I work for the BBC
Life is not what it used to be
Elstree
Elstree
Elstree
Elstree
Elstree
