Belle And Sebastian – Big John Shaft lyrics

I'll make another movie
The same one as the year before
I'll take a tired idea
And put it in the hands of Hollywood

I need to talk to someone
I've been living someone else's life
I don't get no mail at my house anymore
My manager's my bride

I'm leaving on a jet plane
I'll see my baby soon enough
I won't take her to the movie
I'm worried that the lines become all blurred

I couldn't help but feeling something
When the boss told us to act this way
I'm ashamed of my profession
I would do the same again

I'll make another movie
Same one as the year before
I'm looking for a story
Something ludicrous to rise up from the street

I won't play another heavyweight
I won't play another big John Shaft
Put me in a frock and leave me to recite
Maybe my career will die
