Around the time of 'clambake'
You and the lying Dutchman
You're as strong as when you started
You can still be Marlon Brando

No, you must have Hollywood
That much is understood
Maybe then you'll know what to do
Are just not ringing true

Your dreams are all ideals
Lord, everything is real
Roll back to the truth
In your first recording booth
Around the time of 'clambake'
Sometimes there'll be the feeling
The morning star is fading
You can still be Marlon Brando
But it's a ways to go back to tupelo
