Testo della canzone Celluloid Heroes (Ray Davies and the Crouch End Festival Chorus), tratta dall'album The Kinks Choral Collection

Celluloid Heroes - Ray Davies and the Crouch End Festival Chorus

Everybody's a dreamer
And everybody's a star
And everyone'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 step 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
You can see all the stars
As you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
Some that you recognize
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
'Cause he's liable to turn and bite
But stand close by Bette Davis
Because hers was such a lonely life
You can see all the stars
As you walk down Hollywood Boulevard
Some that you recognize
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
You can see all the stars
As you walk along Hollywood Boulevard
Some that you recognize
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
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
Everybody's a dreamer
And everybody's a star
And everybody's in movies
It doesn't matter who you are
