LYRIC

Some day Ia´m going to grow up
And be every mana´s dream
Some day Ia´m going to grow up
And forget this sad little me
Ia´m going to shine in the spotlight
Wear sexy clothes
Be somebody everybody wants to meet
And no one ever really knows
No one will ever know me

Ia´m an actress through and through
And to my bones
Ia´m an actress through and through
And to my bones

Critics will adore me
At least they will at first
But you see I already know this
So it cana´t never really hurt
And if it does, Ia´m an actress
Ia´ll play it nonchalant
In the total scheme of things ita´s insignificant
(sure I can take the knocks)

Cause Ia´m an actress through and through
And to my bones
Ia´m an actress through and through
And to my bones

I may not be that pretty now
But whoa´s the referee
Standards of beauty
Will be redefined because of me

And then theya´ll be the scandals
Everywhere my name
Men will jump from balconies
And Ia´ll just shrug and take the blame
(yeah, theya´ll say I died for love)

Cause Ia´m an actress through and through
And to my bones
Well, Ia´m an actress through and through
And to my bones

My acceptance speech will be a milestone
Never will such a star
Have ever graced the microphone
And of course Ia´ll thank my agent
The way they always do
Though I could have done it without him
And that goes for the Academy too
And the makeup people and the lighting designers and everybody else

Cause Ia´m an actress throughand through
And to my bones
Ia´m an actress through and through
And to my bones
Ia´m an actress yeah, yeah, yeah

Ia´ll be gracious to the lesser stars
And generous to the unknowns
And if another actress threatens
My position on the throne

Well, I dona´t know exactly what Ia´ll do
I dona´t exactly know
But I know that it could turn into
One of my most poignant roles
Everyone will have their handkerchiefs out
And theya´ll have to leave the theater early
And then theya´ll go home
And whata´ll they do?
They`ll have a big glass of alcohol

Cause Ia´m an actress through and through
And to my bones
And if I make it to the top I wona´t be overthrown
Ia´m an actress ah, yeah, yeah
