"Elstree" as written by Trevor Charles Horn and Geoffrey Downes....
I had a dream on a back lot
I saw my life like a long shot
I smile at faces in a picture parade
Of all the stills from the films that you've made
We would see in the Essoldo
Up there drinking coffee on the Giocondo

Elstree, remember me
I had a part in a B movie
I played a man from History
Elstree, look at me
Now I work for the BBC
Life is not what it used to be

I took no dives in the fight scene
I had a stuntman keep my suit clean
There's no technology to fake up a song
They stop the orchestra if you get it wrong

Elstree, remember me,
I had a part in a B movie
I played a man from history
Elstree, look at me,
Now I work for the BBC,
Life is not what it used to be,
Elstree

They made a field into a war zone
I beat the enemy on my own
All the bullets just went over my head
There's no reality and no one dead, in

Elstree, remember me,
I had a part in a B movie
I played a man from history
Elstree, look at me
now I work for the BBC
Life is not what it used to be
Elstree
Elstree
Elstree
Elstree
Elstree
Cut
