"I've Seen That Movie Too" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
I can see by your eyes you must be lying
When you think I don't have a clue
Baby you're crazy
If you think that you can fool me
Because I've seen that movie too

The one where the players are acting surprised
Saying love's just a four letter word
Between forcing smiles, with the knives in their eyes
Well their actions become so absurd

So keep your auditions for somebody
Who hasn't got so much to lose
'Cause you can tell by the lines I'm reciting
That I've seen that movie too

So keep your auditions for somebody
Who hasn't got so much to lose
'Cause you can tell by the lines I'm reciting
I've seen that movie too

It's a habit I have, I don't get pushed around
Stop twinkling your star like you do
I'm not the blue print for all of your 'b' films
Because I've seen that movie too

The one where the players are acting surprised
Saying love's just a four letter word
Between forcing smiles, with the knives in their eyes
All their actions become so absurd

So keep your auditions for somebody
Who hasn't got so much to lose
'Cause you can tell by the lines I'm reciting
That I've seen that movie too

So keep your auditions for somebody
Who hasn't got so much to lose
'Cause you can tell by the lines I'm reciting
I've seen that movie too

So keep your auditions for somebody
Who hasn't got so much to lose
'Cause you can tell by the lines I'm reciting
I've seen that movie too

So keep your auditions for somebody
Who hasn't got so much to lose
'Cause you can tell by the lines I'm reciting
I've seen that movie too

    General Commentoh and the backwards guitar line (or at least i think it's backwards) is the utmost in neato.

    General CommentMy favourite EJ song. I guess the meaning is fairly obvious, using movies as a simile for a love affair where the writer is saying the other party is being dishonest but he can see through it.

    My InterpretationOne of the saddest of his songs, of which there are many. Auditions = fake people trying to get close to him either through business or romance. Seems he went through alot of heartbreak and being used, so he not only became stronger but also more cynical. He had to harden his heart a bit to get past it and move forward.

    General CommentCriminally underrated. It's sad but not depressing. One of the best songs off GYBR

    General CommentThe line "I've seen that movie too" was also used in Guns N' Roses' "You Could Be Mine." Probably not a coincidence because "November Rain" was so inspired by Elton John, and Axl was a devoted fan of John despite his homophobia (just like Eminem).
