Matinee Idol

MATINEE IDOL - Written by Carroll Bryant 


I can see that you're waiting for your prince charming
To come and take you to your happy ever after
Standing in line
You're dreaming of that faraway star
You believe you're gonna get him someday
You say you are
So much excitement running through your bones
Feeling so delighted in living all alone

But I say, baby

I want to be your matinee idol
I want you to go everywhere that I go
I want to be your matinee idol 
I want to be the star in your imaginary picture show

I think you're crazy yeah, but you look so cute
I think it's adorable how you go nuts for Hollywood
I know you're gonna do whatever you want to do
Without a second thought 
To your deprived sanity 
Sitting in your chair and looking at the silver screen
It's the greatest thing you claim, that you have ever seen

But I say, baby

I want to be your matinee idol
I want you to go everywhere that I go
I want to be your matinee idol 
I want to be the star in your imaginary picture show

And when the movie runs down
You race back sliding across the floor
You run across town
Back home and you close the door

It's your little hideaway
I wonder what you're doing?
Are you thinking my way?
Baby, I think you're crazy
But still you seem to be my kind of lady

It's your little hideaway 
A place where you can always play
I wonder what you're playing?

I want to be your matinee idol
I want you to go everywhere that I go
I want to be your matinee idol 
I want to be the star in your imaginary picture show
