Doc Goes Hollywood Lyrics


THEY DON'T MAKE 'EM LIKE YOU ANYMORE
S. Kupka (Stephen Kupka Songs - ASCAP)* / E. Castillo (Arikat Music - ASCAP)* / F. Biner (Binerdam Music - ASCAP)*
Intro
Who can figure it? Who even wants to try?
Since normal boundaries don't apply
You defy description
Space and time

Verse 1
Just like a Stradivarius violin
Like a symphony by Beethoven
You're a very precious gem
THEY DON'T MAKE 'EM LIKE YOU ANYMORE

Verse 1A
You've got that classic quality so rare
A timeless kinda' flair
When they made you they broke the mold
Aesop's fables, fairy tales
Happy endings from magic spells
Who needs those - We got our own tale to tell
So timeless as well

Verse 2
Just like a Stradivarius violin
Like a symphony by Beethoven
You're a very precious gem
THEY DON'T MAKE 'EM LIKE YOU ANYMORE

Verse 2A
Just like a master craftsman tools his trade
It's with pride I'm here to say
That I love you and I always will
There's no one else who's quite like you
Your inner beauty comes shining thru
That combined with my thoughts in mind were meant to be
Part of history

Bridge
Of all the classic beauties that the poets write about
None of them got nothing on you - Not Cleopatra, not Claire de Lune
Your every detail is by design - Each finely crafted, flowing line
The seven wonders of the world don't hold a candle to you girl

Vamp out on THEY DON'T MAKE 'EM LIKE YOU ANYMORE

I MADE THIS MOVIE BEFORE

It seems I MADE THIS MOVIE BEFORE - The flick where the chick splits and walks out the door
Make no mistake - Say 'Cut - It's a take' - I MADE THIS MOVIE BEFORE

Verse 1A
It seems I MADE THIS MOVIE BEFORE - The one where she wins an Academy Award
And somehow it seems rhat all my best scenes
End up on the cutting room floor

Chorus
I didn't even know how to act - She was well rehearsed and polished
I didn't even know how to act - She used all her tricks and knowledge
Didn't even know what to do - Tell me what's a guy supposed to do

Verse 2
It seems I MADE THIS MOVIE BEFORE - The film where I'm the villain
Second billing, nothing more
Big budget production - I paid for it all - Then she changed the ending
To make me look small

Chorus
I didn't even know how to act - She was well rehearsed and polished
I didn't even know how to act - She used all her tricks and knowledge
Didn't even know what to do - Tell me what's a guy supposed to do

Bridge
Of all the greatest lovers the world has ever seen
We could have been among the greatest to grace the silver screen
A Panavision version of my Technicolor dream
I acted so naive or so it seems - Or so---

Verse 3
It seems I MADE THIS MOVIE BEFORE -A remake of the same mistakes
At least as much or more
There's no turning back - Say 'Cut - It's a wrap'
I MADE THIS MOVIE BEFORE

Verse 3A
It seems I MADE THIS MOVIE BEFORE - She played Hedy Lamarr - Let me be Don DeFore
The pacing was brisk - The direction was crisp
She had the angles covered - Precious little she missed

Chorus
I didn't even know how to act - She was well rehearsed and polished
I didn't even know how to act - She used all her tricks and knowledge
Didn't even know what to do - Tell me what's a guy supposed to do

WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
S. Kupka (Stephen Kupka Songs - ASCAP)* / D. Woodford (Stephen Kupka Songs - ASCAP)*
Verse 1
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? - If you said you loved me
It was different way back then - When you placed no one above me
Before you snubbed me
The vows you made were a game you played
And you played me for a fool - What can I say?
But WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE, anyway?

Verse 2
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? - If you broke my heart
It was different way back then - When we were as one together
And not apart
But that was then and now is now - Our love got lost somehow
But WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
It was only my mistake, anyhow

Bridge
Lies are lies and the truth is truth and facts are mainly facts
The fact is it's the truth you lied to me right where you sat
There are two sides to every story - Everyone they must know that
While the jury's still out we'll have to wait and see
What the verdict's gonna be - It's up to history

Verse 3
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE - If you said it was forever?
It was only my mistake that I thought forever meant
Until the twelfth of never
The season's change - They come and go
Love can be just like that - Why is it so?
But WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE - I just don't know

Verse 4
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE - If my whole world fell apart?
It was only my mistake - Dreaming, mostly chasing rainbows
Right from the start
But there's one thing I learned from you - When you wake up your dream is thru
But WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
And it was only my mistake anyway
