Lyrics

MOVIE STAR 
Yesterday I was hanging off of moon beams 
Feeling like a wild thing 
Driving in a car 
I was a red hot, sweet pet, sure bet, movie star! 
Yesterday I was playing Greta Garbo, 
Mickey Rooney, Harpo 
Natalie Wood 
Anything to pull a crowd, get a laugh, let 'em saw me right in half 
Man, I was good 
Today I'm an old man hammer 
Hitting nails, cursing hard, got my dogs in the yard 
Today I'm dud firecracker 
Half ­used in the wrapper, and I can't find a spark 
I can’t find a spark 
Yesterday I was dancing the calypso 
Argentine tango 
Salsa and jive 
I did the quick step, fox trot, hustle and robot 
Man, I was live 
Yesterday I was eating at a four star 
Lobster, steak, and caviar 
Champagne and wine 
I had a door man, m​aître d',​everybody look at me 
Yes, I was fine 
Today I'm a sad dog digger 
With my nose to the ground 
And I'm sniffing around 
Today I'm a grab bag lady 
Got a spot on the subway, more lost than found 
I'm more lost than found 
Everywhere I go 
I've got a feeling there is someone I should know 
And I don't know if I'll find him 
And the life I left behind is looking sweeter all the time 
Yesterday I was hanging off of moon beams 
Feeling like a wild thing 
Driving in a car 
I was a red hot, sweet pet, sure bet, movie star 
Door man, m​aître d',​everybody look at me 
Anything to get a laugh, let 'em saw me right in half 
Today I'm an old man hammer 
Hitting nails, cursing hard, got my dogs in the yard 
Today I'm dud firecracker 
Half ­used in the wrapper, and I can't find a spark 
I can’t find a spark
