I've been dying to reach you but your lines have been tied

Help me breach this disconnection from the other side

‘Cause I finally made it where I grow my own grass

The last scene I played... it was six handles and brass

 

No I could not take the monkey… had to leave it all behind

Where I left the silver legend here to flicker on your mind

I'm a rolling Moviola… click the switch and hit the spark

Stop believing that it's over… I'm as hot in the dark

 

I put on all your faces and I pulled off my pants

In some celluloid aces that I laid down to "Chance"

Now I'm digging in the garden but I had to get back

To tell you if you're wondering I'm still all right Jack

 

No I could not take the monkey… had to leave it all behind

Where I left the silver legend here to flicker on your mind

I'm a rolling Moviola… click the switch and hit the spark

Stop believing that it's over… I'm as hot in the dark

 

I was the first or so she said

No not the last in Lolita's bed

I made a stranger love instead

Showing my life I played the game

Knowing the price you can pay for fame

 

No I could not take the monkey… had to leave it all behind

Where I left the silver legend here to flicker on your mind

I'm a rolling Moviola… click the switch and hit the spark

Stop believing that it's over… I'm as hot in the dark

      
              

In remembrance of the incomparable British film actor, Mr. Peter Sellers (1925-1980)
