Roll The Credits
Lyrics
It's a once-only screening by public demand
Don't make movies like this anymore
You're the celluloid star with no sequel to make
From what's left on the cutting room floor

You played hero and villain
Wrote soundtrack and script
You directed and funded it all (so)

Roll the credits up the screen
Raise the houselights
There's nothin' more to see
Movies over, move along
Let the critics rate your final cut alone
Right or wrong
Roll the credits

It's a comedy, tragedy, thriller and soap
But no spin-off to grace any screen
Will your public endorse you on what they observe
From this lifetime achievement in scenes

Did you get what you wanted
From your starring role?
Did you fill up the circles and stalls?

Roll the credits up the screen
Raise the houselights
There's nothin' more to see
Movies over, move along
Let the critics rate your final cut alone
Right or wrong
Roll the credits

It's an overhead light-dance
Apparent on screen
All your back-stage adventures unseen

Roll the credits up the screen
Raise the houselights
There's nothin' more to see
Movies over, move along
Let the critics rate your final cut alone
Right or wrong
Roll the credits
