Sunset Boulevard – Every Movie's A Circus (Reprise) lyrics

All
Every movie's a circus on the wire without a net
Joanna
Coffee?
Myron
I'm up too early, shooting at seven, I gotta go
All
Movies
Boy
What's wrong?
Mary
Can't get a screen test,
Don't you hate it when a yes-man says no?
All
Movies
Girl
Good part?
Boy
I'm a policeman "Hang up, punk" that's all I say
Actor
First time, you work on the lot there
Actress
I must say R.K.O are O.K.
All
Movies.
Boy
Then what?
Girl
He pressed a button, out of the wall fell a four-poster bed.
All
Movies,
Myron
Busy?
Joanna
They shot my screenplay
Myron
Isn't that great?
Joanna
No, they shot the thing dead.
All
Every movie's a circus on the wire without a net.
Boy
Lonely?
Girl
That's how I like it.
Boy
Can't you be nice?
Girl
Why? We're not on the set.
All
Movies
Artie
Hey, Joe, what are you, slumming?
Joe
Here for a meeting
Artie
This time of night?
All
Movies
Joe
Yeah, it's some studio smartass,
You know I'm famous for being polite.
All
Movies
Artie
Guess what? I'm getting married.
Joe
Congratulations
Artie
She'll be right back.
All
Movies
Artie
Fact is we were just leaving
She's been stood up by some uppity hack.
All
Movies
Joe
Married, who would have thought it?
Why don't you look happy?
Come on, be brave.
All
Movies
Artie
It's this movie I'm shooting.
Joe
You first assistant?
Artie
More like a slave.
All
Every movie's a circus.
Artie
But this is a circus movie as well
Problems, nothing but problems.
Animals, actors, two kinds of hell.
All
Every movie's a circus on the wire without a net.
Betty
Well, hello, Mr. Gillis.
Artie
You two have met?
Joe
I'm the uppity hack.
Artie
And she's the studio smartass.
Betty
What's going on here?
Barman
Artie, they're calling you back.
Betty
I just reread "Blind Windows"
It needs some real re-working, of course.
If we fixed up the opening
Artie
Call up the wrangler, pay off the horse.
