AN ACTOR'S LIFE*

it's an actor's life for me! Being who I choose to be!
AS A KING OR SLAVE , I'M HEROICALLY BRAVE,
AS A LOVER OR CAD, PERHAPS STARK RAVING MAD,
ON THE TELLY OR SCREEN, I'LL PLAY NELLY OR MMEAN
SPEAKING LINES ON A PAGE, I'M ALWAYS ON STAGE!

It's an actor's life, It's an actor's , actor's life for me!

My Hamlet and Lear is my classical sphere,
While my slapstick is corn "UP TO HERE" !
I'd rather not say all the towns that I play,
There are bills left behind still to pay!

It's an actor's life for me! Being who ,I choose to be!
As a lover or cad, perhaps stark raving mad,
It's an actor's life, an actor's, actor's life for me!

My technical talents are varied and wide,
I can make-up to play any part,
The ladies I've courted and left long the way,
Can attest to my skills and my art!

It's an actor's life for me! Being who I choose to be!
On the telly or screen, I'll play nelly or mean,
It's an actor's life, it's an actor's , actor's life for me!

Some gamblers who lost when my fixed dice were tossed,
Still pursue me, but haven't a trace,
I'm sort of a cad, tho not totally bad,
There are places I can't show my face!

It's an actor's life for me! Being who I choose to be!
Thinking lines on a page, I'm always on stage!
It's an actor's life, it's an actor's , actor's life for me!

No personna I'm not, with the talent I've got!
It's an actor's life, it's an actor's, actor's life for me!
An actor's life you bet!
