Your delicate condition
As any fool can tell
The camera wouldn't tell a fib
You're making love to no one else

You're fragile and you're difficult
An artist in every sense
It's the dialogue I can live without
Hurry up, my place or his

You ought to be a silent film star
Keep that pretty little trap shut
You ought to be a silent film star
Keep that pretty trap shut

(Coming attraction)

Everybody sees you coming
You're as subtle as a battering ram
The foreign press is watching you undress
Just like a paid program

You ought to be a silent film star
Keep that pretty little trap shut
You ought to be a silent film star
Keep that pretty little trap shut

You're power drunk with passion
A fact I can't ignore
We don't dare ask for your photograph
You couldn't bear lying in some drawer

You ought to be a silent film star
Keep that pretty little trap shut
You ought to be a silent film star
Keep that pretty little trap shut
