They said that Hollywood was never gonna be the same without you
Still, you’re gone

How could we forget that face and all that silver, flickering grace that died with the silent age?
When everybody knew your name
They all knew your name

Born wild like a prairie flower
She was sown by the wind and blown for miles
Kansas couldn't keep the child

Hell-bound for the Great White Way
For the tawdry-bawdy burlesque stage
and Wichita was miles and miles away

Everybody knew your name
Everybody knew your name
They knew your name

So you burned the candle
Burned it at both ends.
So love ends in scandal
You burned it brief; you burned it bright
And the light in your immortal eyes
Is the light that will never die

Christened in straight-up gin
Pandora was born in Weimar, Berlin
And that was the rise before the fall!

Everybody sat in the dark, dark, black as night
Everybody wanted to go where the light was so bright
And your shining face was gonna lead the way

Homecoming like a heroine-bride
But the honeymoon was over before you arrived
And now they all cursed your name
Everybody cursed your name

Cold winds of Gotham howled
And the princess pawned her celluloid crown
In the glass castle walls

Where nobody knew your name
Nobody knew your name
