He ruled the golden silent screen
He haunted millions in their dreams
His mem'ry lives on 'til today
Some even say that he was lonely
So listen to my story, here's some heavy news
(Get a hold of this one)

Some men think that they are hot , but they ain't got the charm of Valentino
When that man gave you the eye, the masses would just melt and sigh for Tino
Each new part he played made him a superstar
My favorite pantomime, he never spoke a line
People pass away but legends stay
Valentino, R.I.P.

My favorite sheik of araby
You put us all in ecstasy
Take any dream or fantasy
You made them true not just for me
So if I'm not being too cheeky, listen now
(And hear this one)

Fairbanks, Chaplin, Barry Moore had leading ladies by the score like Tino
Sure, they all could latin love, but there was only one like Valentino
There were rumors 'bout his personality
Well let me tell you dear, don't believe all you hear
As Grandpa died he whispered in my ear
Tino was his favorite star

So if I'm not being too cheeky, listen now
(And get a hold of this one)

[Repeat 1st verse]

[Repeat 2nd verse]
