Starstruck

  • (Judy Small)

    Chorus:
    Edward James Mackintosh knew he was gonna be a star
    He had all the right trappings, right clothes, right dog, right car
    He drank single malt whisky and smoked Havana cigars
    Because Edward James Mackintosh knew he was gonna be a star

    It wasn't so much the acting that attracted him
    It was the money and the parties and the glamour and of course, the fame
    And one day they'd all come a-knocking on his front door
    Because Edward James Mackintosh knew he was gonna be a star

    He waited on tables while he waited for the call to come
    He waited on stars who never even knew his name
    But one of these days it would be him eating caviar
    Because Edward James Mackintosh knew he was gonna be a star

    Repeat 1

    By now you must have guessed something pretty great happened to him
    'Cause who would write a song about a guy who never lived his dream
    Yes he was walking down the street with his dog Madeleine at his side
    When he heard the words he'd been waiting for all of his life

    My God, said a voice, That's it! That's the perfect face!
    That's the one we've been searching for all over the place
    They made Edward James an offer just the way he had foreseen
    And now Madeleine is a star on the silver screen

    The money rolled in because the people just loved Madeleine
    And Edward James basked in the glory and the pink champagne
    And he smiles to himself as he gets into his chauffeur-driven car
    Because Edward James Mackintosh knew he was gonna be a star

    Repeat 1
