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
We would see in the Essoldo
Up there drinking coffee on the Giocondo

Elstree, remember me
I had a part in a B movie
I played a man from History
Elstree, 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
