LyricsCelluloid Heroes

The Kinks

Last update on: September 10, 2020

Everybody's a dreamer And everybody's a star And everybody's in movies

It doesn't matter who you are There are stars in every city In every house and on every street And if you walk down Hollywood Boulevard Their names are written in concrete Don't thread on Greta Garbo As you walk down the boulevard She looks so weak and fragile That's why she tried to be so hard But they turned her into a princess And they sat her on a throne But she turned her back on stardom Because she wanted to be alone Well You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard Some that you recognise, some that you've hardly even heard of People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain Rudolph Valentino Looks very much alive And he looks up ladies' dresses As they sadly pass him by Avoid stepping on Bela Lugosi Because he's liable to turn and bite But stand close by Bette Davis Because hers was such a lonely life Well You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard Some that you recognise, some that you've hardly even heard of People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain Everybody's a dreamer And everybody's a star And everybody's in show-biz It doesn't matter who you are But those who are successful Be always on your guard Success walks hand in hand with failure Along Hollywood Boulevard I wish my life was a non-stop Hollywood movie show A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes 'Cause celluloid heroes never feel any pain And celluloid heroes never really die You can see all the stars as you walk along Hollywood Boulevard Some that you recognise, some that you've hardly even heard of People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain La la la la la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la la la la la La la la la la la la la la la la la la Oh, celluloid heroes never feel any pain Oh, celluloid heroes never really die I wish my life was a non-stop Hollywood movie show A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain And celluloid heroes never really die
