Jim Beam & Voddi – Ak Ausserkontrolle songtexte

Jim Beam und Jacky, aus Versehen auf den Lappi
Hab’ die Hausparty zerstört und trotzdem findet sie mich sexy
Denn sie kennt „Ohne mein Team“, hat schon so oft dazu getanzt
Kommt die Melodie springt sie sofort auf mein’n Schw*nz
Zwei-Meter-Mann kommt in ‘n Club rein, Autorität so wie Suge Knight
Wenn die Frau’n erstmal seh’n wie mein Schmuck scheint hol’ ich ihn raus und sie lutscht gleich
Breakdance den Turtle, Rayban am Gürtel versuri-lyrics.info
Drei Uhr morgens mit Cabrio und Playmates durchs Viertel
Was ihr wollt, der ganze Kiez ist ein Schlampenstrich
Ich bin so süß, sie sieht meine Wampe nich’
Angewichst und zur Tanke geschickt, sie hat noch nie mit ein’m Mann gefickt
Mit ihrem Arsch, ich will reinbeißen, einseifen, sie steht auf Autos mit Breitreifen
Kurz Kentucky, was reinpfeifen und dann nach Hause, sie einreiten
Sie tauscht mit mir ihr Silikon gegen Million’n von Klicks
Will sich unbedingt ‘n jungen Pitty hol’n, doch von Hunden weiß sie nix
Kommt mein Track wird mitgerappt, wird sie frech gleich bitchgeslappt
Unsere Bilder stellst du nicht ins Netz, noch ein’n Hundefilter und ich schick dich weg. Jim Beam und Voddi, richtig mieser Body
Sie springt in den Swimmingpool, ich (ah) sie in der Lobby
Ich gib’s ihr (gib ihr, gib ihr), ich gib’s ihr (nimm sie durch)
Ich gib’s ihr (gib ihr, gib ihr), ich gib’s ihr (Sie is’ mein Hobby!)
Jim Beam und Voddi, richtig mieser Body
Sie springt in den Swimmingpool, ich (ah) sie in der Lobby
Ich gib’s ihr (gib ihr, gib ihr), ich gib’s ihr (in der Sonne)
Ich gib’s ihr (gib ihr, gib ihr), ich gib’s ihr (bis ich kommeee!)

Songtexte Ak Ausserkontrolle – Jim Beam & Voddi
Ich komm’ angefahr’n im Daimler, auf Panda vom Designer
Black-Express-Card ist im Einsatz, mach’ das Flex klein für die Weiber
Gentleman, charmant, nimm das Sektglas in die Hand
Schenk’ ihr Sekt ein und sie tanzt dann extravagant
Sie sieht aus wie ‘ne Türkin, Bauchnabelpiercing
Sie hat zwar kleine Titten, doch ein’n Arsch wie ein Pfirsich
Langes, schwarzes Haar, ihre Lippen sind gespritzt
Guck, wir nehmen sie mit und geben ihr zu dritt
Sie zögert nicht lang und sie steigt in den Benz
Leg’ ihr paar Lines und wir landen im Bett
Schampus und Sekt, schamloser S*x
Geb’ ihr von hinten – Rammbockeffekt
Vodka, Tequila, Bacardi Rum und Chivas
Belvedere, sechs Liter, guck, sie schluckt mehr als Benziner
Sie ist fies, Skinny Jeans, gibt sich mies die Kante
Nimm’ sie in die Suite, gib ihr richtig tief, richtig miese Schlampe
Fünf Sterne, Luxuszimmer, argentinisch Rumpsteak
Panoramafenster, sie will einfach nur noch bum.(jim beam)
Jim Beam und Voddi, richtig mieser Body
Sie springt in den Swimmingpool, ich (ah) sie in der Lobby
Ich gib’s ihr (gib ihr, gib ihr), ich gib’s ihr (nimm sie durch)
Ich gib’s ihr (gib ihr, gib ihr), ich gib’s ihr (Sie is’ mein Hobby!)
Jim Beam und Voddi, richtig mieser Body
Sie springt in den Swimmingpool, ich (ah) sie in der Lobby
Ich gib’s ihr, ich gib’s ihr (in der Sonne)
Ich gib’s ihr, ich gib’s ihr (bis ich komme!)

The gunner – Machine Gun Kelly lyrics

That’s a major motion picture wallet
No, I do not want a comment
Don’t approach me, I am violent
Snapping pictures ’cause I’m styling
Let me make it very f*cking clear who I am
Do not start assuming, let me clear confusion
I am not a human, they call me a giant
I pick up the mic and I start a riot
I spit a verse and I change the climate
f*ck a dealer, man, I need the pilot
Drop the weight off like he on a diet
Hanging off of the balcony of the Hyatt
I started with one, and I’m multiplying
Now I got me 3 women like Frankie Lymon
And I got me a double X made in diamonds
b*tch, the dynasty never dying
Someone ring the sirens, I just f*ck the silence
I just sparked the loud up,, who the f*ck can stop us? Let’s do this for real
Super sonic, super sonic
Psychedelics and some chronic
Still remain a trending topic
Five movies, let’s be honest, what you call it? I resort to violence, no resorts and islands
You know where to find us. I am the gunner. (x4)
Machine Gun Kelly lyrics
Video gunner
I am the gunner. Lyrics Machine Gun Kelly – The gunner
Ayyyy, my walk is so cocky the bouncers don’t even stop me
Ain’t no pat down, no ID
They know me, that s**t obvi
b*tch I pack out the lobby just from fans tryna find me
I got daughters and mothers tryna f*ck with the gunner
Two tone suit like the Joker
My Harley Quinn wears a choker
Let them suicide doors up
So much smoke, can’t photo us
I’m out west like the gold rush, 1942 poured up
I ain’t spent one night sober since I turned 20 years old
But I’m on my Jeezy in 2005 “Trap or Die” s**t
The everyday 100, this ain’t no facade s**t
This that “Look me in my eyes and don’t you f*ckin’ lie” s**t
Still don’t need no opinions
b*tch, most these artists my minions, whoa
Any weed around me finna get burnt
No lie, I’m on fire versuri-lyrics.info
Hogtie anybody need a realization that they f*ckin’ with the wrong guy
I am the Alpha Omega, came from Sonic on a Sega
Crumblin’ chronic on the table
Mumbling lyrics in the basement
Like I’m finna go Super Saiyan
I’m saying I ain’t had a plan coming out the land
Hanging with my man, tryna slang a gram
Just to rent a van, just to try and tour
Turn some common clothing in to couture
Steal money from the sewer
Look at all that I been doing
All them years I couldn’t afford, places in the morgue
We are not the same, say the f*ckin’ name. (x4)

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – New Year’s Eve (Back At The House On Sunset) lyrics

I’ll do it again! You’ve been good to me. You must have some girl, why don’t you go to her? NORMA
Then why don’t you say thank you and go? JOE
I never meant to hurt you, Norma. I’ll do it again! NORMA
Go away. You’re the only person in this stinking town that’s ever been good to me. JOE
Happy New Year. Go, go! NORMA
I’ll do it again! JOE
What kind of a silly thing was that to do? NORMA
Happy New Year, darling. JOE
Attractive headline: “Great Star kills herself for Unknown Writer”. NORMA
Great stars have great pride. Go!

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – New Year’s Eve lyrics

And one. JOE
“Mad about the boy”. It tickles. Open it. And one, two… JOE
Norma, it’s that thing. MAX
Would you rather I mix for you a dry martini
Or shall I open the champage

JOE
Max, don’t be so evasive
Who’s she invited to the ball? Come on. Titanic
Will we play spot the actor? NORMA
I had these tiles put in, you know,
Because Rudy Valentino said to me, it takes tiles to tango. JOE
No, no, not on the same floor as Valentino! NORMA
Yes; and you do look absolutely divine. JOE
Max, you’ve pulled the stops out
It looks like Gala Night aboard S.S. Follow me. Don’t lean back like that. Read what it says. JOE
Norma, I can’t take this. JOE
Well, thank you. Happy New Year. As if we’re visiting a gallery of waxworks? NORMA
Oh come on, come on, come on. NORMA
Oh, shut up. Get up. and one, two, one two, together. MAX
Madame herself made every call

NORMA
Here.

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – New Ways To Dream (Reprise) lyrics

JOE
Suppose I tiptoe up the back stairs and get undressed in the dark, will that do it? JOE
What’s the matter there, Max? So I play this game
Keeper of the flame
Sharing with her one last dream
Don’t you think I knew it never could come true? That is my job. MAX
I directed all her early pictures. When we met, she was a child
Barely sixteen
Awkward and yet, she had an air
I’ve never seen
I knew I’d found my perfect face
Deep in her eyes
New ways to dream
And we inspired
New ways to dream

Talkies came; I stayed with her, took up this life
Threw away fame
Please understand
She was my wife

We had achieved far more than most
We gave the world new ways to dream
Everyone needs new ways to dream

JOE
Are you saying you were married to her? MAX
I was the first husband. You waiting to wash the car? In those days,
There were three young directors who showed promise: D.W. She’ll be the very last one to surrender
I will not allow her to surrender Madame may be watching. MAX
She never will. I made her a star and I will never let her be destroyed. DeMille and —

JOE
Max von Mayerling. MAX
That’s right. JOE
You made her a star? MAX
Please be careful when you cross the patio. JOE
Well, we’re not helping any, feeling her lies, more lies. Griffith, Cecil B. What’s going to happen when she finds out they’re not going to make her picture? MAX
It’s just that I am greatly worried about Madame.

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – The Lady’s Paying lyrics

NORMA
I can’t do without you, Joe, I need you. He’s an old friend of mine. NORMA
Happy birthday, darling. I’ve sent out every single invitation

JOE
All right, Norma, I give in

NORMA
Of course you do
And when they’ve dressed you
You’ll cause a sensation

SALESMEN
We equip the chosen few of Movieland

MANFRED
(The latest cut)

SALESMEN
We dress every movie star and crooner
From their shiny toecaps to their hatband

MANFRED
(Conceal your gut)
You won’t regret selecting the vicuna

SALESMEN
If you need a hand to shake
If there’s a girl you want to make
If there’s a soul you’re out to capture
Or a heart you want to break
If you want the world to love you

MANFRED
You’ll have to learn to take

SALESMEN
And gracefully accept the role you’re playing

MANFRED
You will earn every cent the lady’s paying

SALESMEN
So why not have it all? Very soon now we’ll have stopped him
Looking like an also-ran

JOE
You’re going to make me sorry that I’m staying

NORMA
Well, all right, I’ll choose, after all, I’m paying! MANFRED
Now that didn’t hurt, did it? NORMA
I’ll leave you boys to it. NORMA
I thought by now he’d look the height of fashion
He always takes forever making up his mind
Don’t be unkind
I thought you writers knew about compassion

I love flannel on a man

MANFRED
This will complement his tan

NORMA
We’ll take two of these and four of those

MANFRED
I’m still your greatest fan! NORMA
Hurry up, the birthday boy is on his way
This is a surprise celebration
I hope you’ve remembered everything I’ve said
I want to see a total transformation

JOE
What’s all this? NORMA
I care, Joe, and please don’t be so mean to me. JOE
O.K., all right. JOE
Artie Green. JOE
I’ve been invited somewhere else on New Year’s Eve. I had them close it down for the day. NORMA
I want to see your most deluxe

JOE
Won’t wear a tux

NORMA
Of course not, dear, tuxedos are for waiters

MANFRED
What we need are tails, a white tie and top hat

JOE
I can’t wear that

NORMA
Joe, second-rate clothes are for second-raters

JOE
Norma, please… JOE
Well, I … NORMA
You can’t come to my New Year’s Eve party in that filling-station shirt. NORMA
These people are from the best men’s shop in town. JOE
Norma, now listen! MANFRED
Help yourself, it’s all been taken care of
Anyone who’s anyone is dressed by me

JOE
Well, golly gee

MANFRED
Pick out anything you’d like a pair of
You just point, I’ll do the rest
I’ve brought nothing but the best
You’re a very lucky writer
Come along now, get undressed
Unless I’m much mistaken
That’s a 42-inch chest

JOE
I don’t understand a word you’re saying

MANFRED
Well, all you need to know’s the lady’s paying
It’s nice to get your just reward this time of year

JOE
Get outta here! Did you think we’d forgotten? MANFRED
Happy birthday, welcome to your shopathon! SALESMEN
The lady’s paying! MANFRED
And all my merchandise is strictly kosher
When you’ve thrown away all your old worn-out stuff

JOE
Hey, that’s enough

MANFRED
Perhaps you’d like to model for my brochure
I have just the thing for you
Chalk-stripe suits

SALESMAN 1
In black

SALESMAN 2
Or blue

SALESMAN 3
Glen plaid trousers

SALESMAN 4
Cashmere sweaters

SALESMAN 5
Bathing shorts for Malibu

SALESMAN 6
Here’s a patent leather lace-up

SALESMAN 7
It’s a virtuoso shoe

MANFRED
And a simply marvelous coat made of vicuna

JOE
You know what you can do with your vicuna

NORMA
Come on Joe, you haven’t even started yet

JOE
You wanna bet? JOE
What’s going on? NORMA
Where? I don’t know. MANFRED
Evening clothes? NORMA
Shut up, I’m rich
Now some platinum blonde bitch
I own so many apartments
I’ve forgotten which is which

JOE
I don’t have to go to premieres
I’m never on display
You seem to forget that I’m a writer
Who cares what you wear when you’re a writer?

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – The Greatest Star Of All lyrics

MAX
Once, you won’t remember
If you said Hollywood, hers was the face you’d think of
Her face on every billboard
In just a single week, she’s get ten thousand letters

Men would offer
Fortunes for a bloom from her corsage
Or a few strands of her hair

Today, she’s half-forgotten
But it’s the pictures that got small
She is the greatest star of all

Then, you can’t imagine
How fans would sacrifice themselves to touch her shadow
There was a maharajah
Who hanged himself with one of her discarded stockings

She’s immortal
Caught inside that flickering light beam
Is a youth which cannot fade

Madame’s a living legend;
I’ve seen so many idols fall
She is the greatest star of all

JOE (V.O.)
When he’d gone, I stook looking out the window for a while. Was her life really as empty as that? There was an empty pool where Clara Bows and Fatty Arbuckle must have swum 10,000 midnights ago. There was the ghost of a tennis court with faded markings and a sagging net. And then there was something else: the chimp’s last rites, as if she were laying
A child to rest.

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – Surrender (Reprise) lyrics

DeMille. NORMA
I’m not worried. It’s so wonderful to be back. Doesn’t she ever pick up the phone? BETTY
Was that really Norma Desmond? New York must be consulted. Gillis
Where have you been keeping yourself? JOE
Look, Betty, I won’t let you down. And I said, that’s exactly the car I’ve been looking for. BETTY
Always full of excuses

JOE
Promise I’ll call you later today

BETTY
You said that last time. MAX
It’s outrageous
You insult her
How can you be so cruel? I’ve been calling for two weeks. NORMA
That’s fine. JOE
Someone’s been doing it for me

BETTY
And meanwhile “Blind Windows”
Is stuck on the shelf
You said we’d work together

JOE
New Year’s crisis, what can I say? I’m not forgotten. I don’t work before 10 or after 4:30 in the afternoon. NORMA
The old team will be back in business

DEMILLE
Sorry, my next shot’s ready

MAX
Mr. JOE
Oh, my God. JOE
What’s the matter, Max? It’s her car. I could be her father. DEMILLE
If you could have seen
Her at seventeen
When all of her dreams were new
Beautiful and strong
Before it all went wrong
She’s never known the meaning of surrender
She’s never known the meaning of surrender HEATHER
She must be about a million years old. HEATHER
Oh, I’m sorry, Mr. DEMILLE
I hate to think where that puts me. I forbid you to approach her

SHELDRAKE
You’re insane

MAX
Go away. You know, outside a museum, you don’t see
That kind of quality anymore. A couple of weeks ago,
I was looking out my office window, I saw you drive onto the lot. They still love me, and soon we’ll be
Breaking new ground
Brave pioneers

DEMILLE
Those were the days

NORMA
Just like before

DEMILLE
We had such fun

NORMA
We gave the world
New ways to dream

BOTH
We always found new ways to dream

DEMILLE
Let’s have a good long talk one day. BETTY
Well, Hello Mr. I’m the one who’s been calling

The name is Sheldrake. Great for my new Crosby picture. So, I made a few inquiries. Gillis… NORMA
Did you see how they all came
Crowding around? BETTY
I guess I’ll just have to trust you. SHELDRAKE
You’re Miss Desmond’s German Shepherd? Ask any exhibitor in the country. NORMA
Now, you remember, don’t you? We’re willing to pay, at least a hundred dollars a week… Go away! It’s not Madame they want. DEMILLE
It was. DEMILLE
Of course you’re not. DEMILLE
It isn’t entirely my decision, Norma. MAX
I just found out the reason for all those phone calls from Paramount. Goodbye, young fellow. We’ll what we can do.

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – Surrender lyrics

You used to be big. JOE
O.K. I had some trouble with my car, I just pulled into your driveway. NORMA
Or shall I call my servant? NORMA
No more wars to fight
White flags fly tonight
You are out of danger now
Battlefield is still
Wild poppies on the hill
Peace can only come when you surrender

Here the tracers fly
Lighting up the sky
But I’ll fight on to the end
Let them send their armies
I will never bend
I won’t see you now ’til I surrender
I’ll see you again when I surrender

Now don’t you give me a fancy price just because I’m rich. JOE
Aren’t you Norma Desmond? And I’m sorry you lost your friend. JOE
Look, lady, you’ve got the wrong man. NORMA
I am big. Don’t blame me, I’m just a writer. It’s the pictures that got small. Once upon a time
Not long ago
The head of any studio
Knew how and when to play his aces
Now they put some
Talentless unknown
Beneath their sacred microphone
We didn’t need words
We had faces

Yes, they took all the idols and smashed them
The Fairbanks, the Gilberts, the Valentinos
They trampled on what was divine
They threw away the gold of silence
When all they needed was this face of mine

JOE
Hey! JOE
Haven’t I seen you somewhere before? You used to be in pictures. NORMA
Get out. NORMA
Get out of here.

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – Sunset Boulevard lyrics

I just keep waiting for the right offer
Comfortable quarters, regular rations
24-hour Five Star room service
And if I’m honest, I like the lady
I can’t help being touched by her folly
I’m treading water, taking the money
Watching her sun set… Well, I’m a writer! L.A.’s changed a lot over the years
Since those brave gold rush pioneers
Came in their creaky covered wagons
Far as they could go end of the line
Their dreams were yours, their dreams were mine
But in those dreams were hidden dragons

Sunset Boulevard, frenzied boulevard
Swamped with every kind of false emotion
Sunset Boulevard, brutal boulevard
Just like you, we’ll wind up in the ocean

She was sinking fast, I threw a rope
Now I have suits and she has hope
It seemed an elegant solution
One day this must end, it isn’t real
Still I’ll enjoy a hearty meal
Before tomorrrow’s execution

Sunset Boulevard, ruthless boulevard
Destination for the stony-hearted
Sunset Boulevard, lethal boulevard
Everyone’s forgotten how they started
Here on Sunset Boulevard…! Dead right I’ve sold out! JOE
Sure I came out here to make my name
Wanted my pool, my dose of fame
Wanted my parking space at Warner’s
But after a year, a one room hell
A murphy bed, a rancid smell
Wallpaper peeling at the corners

Sunset Boulevard, twisting boulevard
Secretive and rich, a little scary
Sunset Boulevard, tempting boulevard
Waiting there to swallow the unwary

Dreams are not enough to win a war
Out here they’re always keeping score
Beneath the tan the battle rages
Smile a rented smile, fill someone’s glass
Kiss someone’s wife, kiss someone’s ass
We do whatever pays the wages

Sunset Boulevard, headline boulevard
Getting here is only the beginning
Sunset Boulevard, jackpot boulevard
Once you’ve won you have to go on winning

You think I’ve sold out?

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – Salome lyrics

NORMA
Where do you live? It’s a great screenplay! MAX
There’s soap and a toothbrush in the bathroom. Max! NORMA
I hate that word. NORMA
Well? And will you be in it? I’ll make it worth your while. NORMA
Just a minute, you. The woman who was all women. If she can’t have him living
She’ll take him dead
They bring in his head on a silver tray
She kisses his mouth. I just finished one script and I’m about to start a new assignment. JOE
Thanks. NORMA
Nonsense, there’s a room over the garage. JOE
Oh, yeah? NORMA
I said sit down! Alto Nido Apartments. JOE
The name is Gillis. JOE
I’m not talking limb from limb
I just mean a little trim
All you need is someone who can edit

NORMA
I want someone with a knack
Not just any studio hack
And don’t think for a moment I’d share credit! NORMA
I want you to do this work. JOE
Next time I’ll bring my autograph album. JOE
Could be it’s a little long
Maybe the opening’s wrong
But it’s extremely good for a beginner

NORMA
No, it’s a perfect start
I wrote that with my heart
The river-bank, the baptist and the sinner

JOE
Shouldn’t there be some dialogue? NORMA
I wrote this. It’s about Salome. JOE
Just asking. NORMA
Don’t you worry about money. Melodrama and sweet champagne
And a garbled plot from a scrambled brain
But I had my own plot brewing

Just how old is Salome? When were you born? We’ll begin a nine sharp. JOE
Depends. JOE
She’s quite a character, isn’t she, that Norma Desmond? JOE
Sure have. Just what sort of length is a movie script these days? I want to ask you something. JOE
You shouldn’t let another writer read your stuff. JOE
It’s fascinating. JOE
Thanks. JOE
Now this is more like it. Would you like to see my credits? JOE
Look like six very important pictures. It’s a very important picture. Gillis to the guest room. I didn’t know you were planning a comeback. Max! Salome, what a woman, what a part! NORMA
Now go. Sit down. JOE
December 21st, why? What do you think? Gee, I don’t know, I’m busy. NORMA
Are you married, Mr…? NORMA
Come over here. You can trust them. NORMA
It’s for DeMille to direct. MAX
I made up the bed this afternoon. JOE
Well, it’s getting kind of late. NORMA
I want you to read it. JOE
Well…fair enough. JOE
I’m pretty expensive. JOE
I’ll come back early tomorrow. Did you say you were a writer? NORMA
I don’t care. NORMA
I’m not afraid. Bring something to drink. Single. How did you know I was going to stay? JOE
It got to be eleven, I was feeling ill
What the hell was I doing? He may steal it. MAX
Yes, Madame. Max will take you there. I get five hundred a week. NORMA
You’ll stay here. MAX
Yes, Madame. Salome: the story of a woman. JOE
That’s what it says on my guild card. NORMA
I like Sagittarians. NORMA
Of course it is. JOE
I see. It’s a return. NORMA
Of course. NORMA
Take Mr. NORMA
Sixteen. NORMA
And you’re written pictures? NORMA
I can say anything I want with my eyes

JOE
It could use a few cuts

NORMA
I will not have it butchered! JOE
Hollywood. JOE
Me? Innocent body and a sinful heart
Inflaming Herod’s lust
But secretly loving a holy man
No one could play her like I can

JOE
Well, I had nothing urgent coming up
I thought I might as well skim it
It’s fun to see how bad bad writing can be
This promised to go to the limit

NORMA
There’s so many great scenes, I can’t wait
A boiling cauldron of love and hate
She toys with Herod
‘Til he’s putty in her hands
He reels tormented through the desert sands

JOE
It sure was a real cheery set-up
The wind wheezing through that organ
Max shuffling around and a dead ape dumped on a shelf
And her staring like a gorgon

NORMA
They drag the Baptist up from the jails
She dances the dance of the seven veils
Herod says: I’ll give you anything

JOE
Now it was time for some comedy relief
The guy with the baby casket
Must have seen a thing or two, that chimp
Shame it was too late to ask it

NORMA
Have you got to the scene where asks for his head?

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – Paramount Conversations lyrics

GUARD
Norma who? I’m coming out of make-up
The lights already burning
Not long until
The cameras will
Start turning. And I said that’s exactly the car I’ve been looking for. GUARD
Mr. (And so saying, HE swivels one of the big lamps until it finds her. (Slow fade to black.) We?re willing to pay a hundred dollars a week… I don’t want to be alone
That’s all in the past
This world’s waited long enough
I’ve come home at last. DEMILLE
Well, yes… The car moves forward.)

JONES
Stage 18, Miss Desmond. (He embraces her.)

DEMILLE
Goodbye, young fellow. (NORMA looks up. She stands there, looking around the old familiar space. Yes, a world to rediscover
But I’m not in any hurry
And I need a moment. Tell him without me there wouldn’t be any Paramount Studio. I’m the one who’s been calling. I was dancing on a table. NORMA
That’s fine. During this exchange, SHELDRAKE has entered. VICTOR MATURE and HEDY LAMARR arrive
To take the place of their identically costumed STAND-INS.)

DEMILLE
Let’s have a good long talk one day. Meanwhile, MAX sounds the horn impatiently. HE thinks about avoiding HER altogether,
But she’s seen him and bears down on him.)

BETTY
Well, hello,
Mr. (The red light goes on and the studio bell shrills. What shall I say? NORMA
Thank you, Max. SHELDRAKE
You’re insane. Open the gate. (She attends to it, using a handkerchief. BETTY
And meanwhile “Blind Windows”
Is stuck on the shelf. SHE stands for a moment, isolated, bathed in the light. Give me a minute. Slowly, as NORMA looks around, the sound fades to nothing. (DEMILLE and NORMA have reached the doorway of the studio.)

NORMA
Now, you remember, don’t you? She hesitates for a moment, gripping JOE’s hand fiercely.)

NORMA
Won’t you come along, darling? DeMille. NORMA
The old team will be back in business. They still love me
And soon we’ll be
Breaking new ground. It’s not Madame they want. The whispered conversations
In overcrowded hallways,
So much to say
Not just today
But always

We?ll have early morning madness
We’ll have magic in the making
Yes, everything?s as if we never said goodbye. Yes, everything?s as if we never said goodbye. She rolls down the window.)

NORMA
Jonesy! She comes over to greet NORMA.)

HEATHER
Miss Desmond. DEMILLE
Thirty million fans have given her the brush. How have you been, Miss Desmond? DEMILLE
What is it? HEATHER is waiting for him. JOE
New Year’s crisis
What can I say? (The shot is ready, and EVRYONE is waiting on DEMILLE’s orders,
But HE pauses for a moment, in pensive mood, his hand on the back of his chair.)

DEMILLE
If you could have seen
Her at seventeen
When all of her dreams were new,
Beautiful and strong,
Before it all went wrong;
She’s never known the meaning of
Surrender;
Never known the meaning of
Surrender. (A long embrace.)

NORMA
Last time I saw you was some place terribly gay. (JOE shakes his head.)

JOE
It’s your script. The name is Sheldrake, A couple of weeks ago, I was looking out of my office window
And I saw you driving on to the lot. DEMILLE
We had such fun. Meanwhile, outside, JOE has moved over towards MAX and notices right away,
From the LATTER’s thunderous expression, that something disturbing has happened.)

MAX
Mr. Lindbergh had lust landed. (JONES looks up, frowning; then his expression clears and he approaches the car.)

JONES
Why, if it isn’t Miss Desmond. NORMA

Thank you, darling. DEMILLE
Of course you’re not. NORMA
I know how busy you are when you’re shooting,
But I really think you could have picked up the phone yourself, instead of leaving it to some assistant. Now, however, unable to ignore the kerfuffle surrounding NORMA,
He steps down and approaches her; NORMA turns to him, radiant.)

NORMA
Did you see
How they all came
Crowding around? We’ll see what we can do. (He begins to walk her towards the studio door. You need an appointment. (The Isotta-Fraschini turns off Brobnson and pulls up in front of the main gates. Then, from all over the studio, murmuring among themselves, TECHNICIANS, EXTRAS
And STAGEHANDS begin to converge on her.)

NORMA
I don’t know why I’m frightened,
I know my way around here
The cardboard trees,
The painted seas,
The sound here. We taught the world new ways to dream. DEMILLE
I hate to think where that puts me. I forbid you to approach her. DEMILLE
Those were the days. HE tries to catch MAX?s attention, but MAX deliberately ignores him. DEMILLE
It isn’t entirely my decision, Norma, New York must be consulted. Go away! (HE leads her into the studio, a bewildering chaos of sound and activity, which at first stuns her. DeMille? HEATHER
She’s here at the studio. Feel the early morning madness
Feel the magic in the making
Why, everything’s as if we never said goodbye. Up in the flies, balanced on the walkway, is a quite elderly ELECTRICIAN.)

NORMA
Hog-eye! DEMILLE
Sorry, my next shot’s ready. HOG-EYE
Let’s get a look at you. I could be her father. MAX
I just found out the reason for all those phone calls from Paramount. DEMILLE
It was. I’m not forgotten. You said
We’d work together. Great for my new Crosby picture. Good luck. (He starts to lead her into the studio.)

NORMA
You read the script, of course. BETTY rushes out of the soundstage)

BETTY
Was that really Norma Desmond? HE shouts to be heard above the cacophony. It’s so wonderful to be back. JOE
Oh, my God. (He turns towards the set. It’s her car. You can’t find that kind of quality outside of a museum. I have a message for Mr. (A scene-change reveals the cavernous exterior of Sound Stage 18,
Where the STAND-INS for Victor Mature and Hedy Lamaar are in position, in a blaze of light,
On the grandiose “Samson and Delilah” set. You ask any exhibitor in the country. So, I made some inquiries and I’ve been calling for two weeks. And this time will be bigger
And brighter than we knew it
So watch me fly
We all know I
Can do it. Has there ever been a moment
With so much to live for? Isn’t that enough? DeMille. (BETTY looks at HIM for a moment.)

BETTY
You said that last time. For the moment, nothing happens; but MAX , it emerges, is engaged in important business,
Staring fixedly into the rear view mirror.)

MAX
If you will pardon me, Madame, the shadow over the left eye is not quite balanced. DEMILLE,
Recognizable from the parody version of Act I, confers with his DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY. Where have you been
Keeping yourself? NORMA AND DEMILLE
We always found
New ways to dream. BETTY
I guess I’ll just have to trust you. HEATHER
Maybe I could give her the brush. MR. DEMILLE waves goodbye to her; then, as the Isotta drives off,
HE shakes his head, disturbed, and moves, preoccupied, back towards the studio doorway. Gillis. (JONES turns tohis young COLLEAGUE.)

]ONES
You heard Miss Desmond. JOE
What’s the matter, Max? (She leads NORMA towards the studio. The whispered conversations
In overcrowded hallways,
The atmosphere
As thrilling here
As always. Could I stop my hand from shaking? I’ve spent so many mornings
Just trying to resist you
I’m trembling now
You can’t know how
I’ve missed you,

Missed the fairy-tale adventures
In this ever-spinning playground,
We were young together. DeMille. HE’s interrupted by one of his assistants, HEATHER, who approaches with some trepidation.)

HEATHER
Mr. (As the car glides through the gates, JONES picks up his telephone.)

JONES
Get me Stage 18. GUARD
They don’t have a pass. NORMA
Thank you, Jonesy. It’s your show. MAX
Go away. MAX
To see Mr. MAX
It’s outrageous,
You insult her,
How can you be so cruel? Meanwhile, NORMA has arrived outside the studio with MAX and JOE. NORMA
I’m not worried. (BETTY smiles at him and hurries on. Feel the early morning madness
Feel the magic in the making
Yes, everything’s as if we never said goodbye. DE MILLE is waiting just inside; he envelops her in his arms.)

DEMILLE
Well, well, well. Suddenly, HE sees BETTY hurrying past,
A bundle of scripts under her arm. HEATHER
Norma Desmond is here to see you, Mr. JOE
Betty, I won’t let you down. NORMA
We gave the world
New ways to dream. (NORMA looks around, unable to identify the source of the VOICE)

HOG-EYE
Up here, Miss Desmond; it’s Hog-eye! Doesn?t she ever answer the phone? In the studio, DEMILLE has been attempting to set up his shot. NORMA
Yes, you do. (Meanwhile, however, NORMA has recognized JONES,
Who is sifting on a wooden chair, reading a newspaper. Open the gate. NORMA
Hello, Mr. DEMILLE
A lot of people were. DEMILLE
It must be about that appalling script of hers. BETTY
Always
Full of excuses. He hurries off. Suddenly, a VOICE rings out.)

VOICE
Miss Desmond! Hey, Miss Desmond! DeMille is shooting. MAX
This is Norma Desmond. It’s so perfect. DEMILLE
Come on in. (JONES shakes his head, exasperated, and begins to open the gate himself. A young STUDIO GUARD breaks off a conversation
HE’s been having with an EXTRA dressed as an indian brave.)

GUARD
Hey, that’s enough of that. (By this time, HEATHER has emerged from the studio. DeMille. Well, hello! JOE
Promise I’ll call you
Later today. DeMille. NORMA
Fine, Jonesy. DEMILLE
I don’t know what you mean, Norma. (The focus shifts to outside the studio, where JOE has moved off to lean against a wall,
Smoke a cigarette, and enjoy the passing parade. JOE
Someone’s
Been doing it for me. HEATHER
Oh, I’m sorry, Mr. I don’t work before 10 or after 4:30 in the afternoon. And teach your friend some manners. HEATHER
She must be about a million years old. (SHELDRAKE hurries off. NORMA
Just like before. No appointment is necessary. HE stops having caught sight of the Isotta. Gillis… Finally,
SHELDRAKE plants himself unavoidably in front of him.)

SHELDRAKE
You’re Miss Desmond?s German shepherd. (SHE turns and sweeps regally away towards her car, the door of which MAX is holding open. Brave pioneers. DEMILLE
Norma Desmond?

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – With One Look lyrics

Silent music starts to play
With one look you’ll know all you need to know

With one look I’ll ignite a blaze
I’ll return to my glory days
They’ll say, “Norma’s back at last!”

This time I am staying, I’m staying for good
I’ll be back to where I was born to be
With one look I’ll be me! NORMA
With one look I can break your heart
With one look I play every part
I can make your sad heart sing
With one look you’ll know all you need to know

With one smile I’m the girl next door
Or the love that you’ve hungered for
When I speak it’s with my soul
I can play any role

No words can tell the stories my eyes tell
Watch me when I frown, you can’t write that down
You know I’m right, it’s there in black and white
When I look your way, you’ll hear what I say

Yes, with one look I put words to shame
Just one look sets the screen aflame
Silent music starts to play
One tear in my eye makes the whole world cry

With one look they’ll forgive the past
They’ll rejoice I’ve returned at last
To my people in the dark
Still out there in the dark…

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – Who’s Betty Schaefer? lyrics

JOE
Very good. JOE
I drove to the beach. NORMA
Who’s Betty Schaefer? All I ask is a little patience, a little understanding. NORMA
You took the car. I’m under such a terrible strain. JOE
Norma, there’s nothing to worry about. NORMA
You went out last night, didn’t you, Joe? NORMA
Of course you haven’t. NORMA
You don’t understand, Joe. I’ve been worried about the line of my throat. NORMA
Are you coming up? I haven’t done anything. JOE
I should have stayed there
Poor Norma
So desperate to be ready
For what would never happen
But Betty would be waiting
We had a script to finish
One unexpected love scene
Two people, both risking
A kind of happy ending NORMA
And I’ve lost half a pound since Tuesday. The only thing that stopped me from killing myself was the
Thought of all those people, waiting to see me back on the screen. How could I disappoint them? JOE
Why, yes. It’s been so hard I even got myself a revolver. JOE
I think I’ll read a while longer. NORMA
Is this what you’re looking for, by any chance? JOE
I went for a walk. JOE
Good. Good night, my darling. JOE
You had. NORMA
Whose phone number is this? JOE
Surely, you don’t want me to feel as if I’m a prisoner in this house? NORMA
Now it’s after nine. I think this woman has done wonders with it. I’d better get to bed.

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – Too Much In Love To Care lyrics

I can’t control all the things I’m feeling
We’re floating in mid-air
If we are fools, well,
We’re too much in love to care
If we are fools, well,
We’re too much in love to care! I just don’t know anymore
If this is real, how should I feel? I can’t control all the things I’m feeling
I’m floating in mid-air
I know it’s wrong, but,
I’m too much in love to care

JOE & BETTY
I thought I had everything I needed
My life was set, my dreams were in place
My heart could see way into the future
All of that goes when I see your face
This is crazy! BETTY
When I was a kid, I played on this street
I always loved illusion
I thought make-believe was truer than life
But now it’s all confusion
Please, can you tell me what’s happening? JOE
If you were smart, you would keep on walking
Out of my life as fast as you can
I’m not the one you should pin your hopes on
You’re falling for the wrong kind of man
This is crazy! What should I look for? I thought I had everything I needed
My life was set, my dreams were in place
My heart could see way into the future
All of that goes when I see your face

I should hate you
There I was, the world in my hand
Can one kiss, kiss away
Everything I planned? You know we should call it a day

JOE
Sound advice

BETTY
Great advice

JOE & BETTY
Let’s throw it away… I just don’t know anymore
If this is real, how should I feel? What should I look for? You know we should call it a day
Sound advice, great advice
Let’s throw it away

I can’t control all the things I’m feeling
I haven’t got a prayer
If I’m a fool, well
I’m too much in love to care

I knew where I was, I’d given up hope
Made friends with disillusion
No one in my life, but I look at you
And now it’s all confusion

BETTY
Please, can you tell me what’s happening?

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – This Time Next Year lyrics

JOE
Listen, I want you to take my old suitcases… And she’s cut her wrists. JOE
I’ll take it. MAX
I’m sorry, I am attending to Madame. JOE
Well, they always know where to find me. JOE
Max, it’s Mr. I can’t talk right now. In fact, I’m available right now. MAX
Yes? ARTIE
It just so happens we’ve got a vacancy on the couch. BETTY
While you’ve been buying vicuna coats
I’ve been making a lot of notes
Now there’s work we should do… ALISA
Just an apartment
With no roaches and no dry rot

ANITA
Where the hot water comes out hot

BOTH
That’s my Hollywood dream

RICHARD A
Your resolution

JOANNA
Is to write something that gets shot
With approximately the plot
I first had in my head

MYRON
But you’ll get rewritten even after you’re dead

RICHARD A
Artie! MAX
I’m sorry, Mr. Let me take your coat
Jesus, Joe, what’s this made of? Gillis. Should auld acquiantance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should auld acquiantance be forgot
And days of auld lang syne
For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet
For the sake of auld lang syne Who did you borrow this from? JOE
Betty, you’re forgetting that I gave it to you
You remind me of me long ago
Off the bus, full of ignorant ambition
Thought I’d waltz into some studio
And achieve overnight recognition
I’ve seen too many optimists sinking like stones
Felt them suck all the marrow clean out of my bones

BETTY
I love “Blind Windows”
But I can’t write it on my own
Can’t we speak on the telephone? Gillis. All my evenings are free

ARTIE
Hey, just a minute
I’m the fellow who bought the ring

BETTY
Artie, this is a business thing
It’s important to me
You’ll be on location in Clinch, Tennessee
Please make this your New Year’s resolution for me

ALL
By this time next year
I will get my foot in the door
Next year I know I’m going to score
An amazing success

Cut to the moment
When they open the envelope
Pass the statuette to Bob Hope
And it’s my name you hear

We’ll be down on our knees
Outside Grauman’s Chinese
Palm prints there on the street
Immortality’s neat! JOE
Hey, Artie. ARTIE
It’s the year to begin a new life
Buy a place somewhere quiet, somewhere pretty
When you have a young kid and a wife
Then you need somewhere green, far from the city
It’s a rambling old house with a big apple tree
With a swing for the kid and a hammock for me

SAMMY
Behold, my children
It is I, Cecil B. JOE
Close, but no cigar. JOE
Hey, Artie, where’s your phone? ARTIE
Under the bar. This time next year
This time next year

We’ll have nothing to fear
Contracts all signed
Three-picture deal
Yellow brick road career
Hope we’re not still saying these things
This time next year

JOE
You know, I think I will be available in the New Year. DeMille
Meeting me must be quite a thrill

ADAM
But there’s no need to kneel

SAMMY
I guarantee you
Every girl in my chorus line
Is a genuine Philistine

SANDY
They don’t come off the shelf

SAMMY
I flew every one in from Philistia myself

BETTY
I have some good news
It’s “Blind Windows”

JOE
You don’t let go

BETTY
I gave Sheldrake an outline, Joe
And he swallowed the bait

JOE
Well, hallelujah! JEAN
By this time next year
I’ll have landed a juicy part

STEVE
Nineteen fifty will be my start

RICHARD T
No more carrying spears

MARY
I’ll be discovered
My life won’t ever be the same
Billy Wilder will know my name
And he’ll call all the time

KATHERINE
‘Til he does, can one of you guys lend her a dime? Mink? You gotta say your New Year’s resolution out loud
Jean! Adolphe Menjou? ARTIE
Hey, Gillis! RICHARD A
Hey, Sammy! We’d give you up. It’s quite a crowd

ARTIE
I invited all the kids doing walk-ons in “Samson and Delilah”. You think you could put me up for a couple of weeks? I was about to call the Bureau of Missing Persons. I want you to do me a favour. I called your apartment. MAX
Madame found the razor in your room. BETTY
Joe, that’s great! Hey! ALL
Three, two, one, Happy New Year! BETTY
Where have you been hiding? JOE
What do you mean? I called your ex-agent.

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – There’s Been A Call lyrics

NORMA
There’s been a call
What did I say
They want to see me right away
Joe, Paramount, they love our child
Mr. DeMille is going wild

JOE
Well, that’s wonderful, Norma. NORMA
But it was some fool assistant
Not acceptable at all
It he wants me, then Cecil B. Himself must call

JOE
I don’t know if this is the time to stand on ceremony. NORMA
I’ve been waiting twenty years now
What’s a few more days, my dear? It’s happened, Joe
I told you so
The perfect year

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – The Phone Call lyrics

How can I go back to work if I’m wasting
Away? JOE
Give you three guesses

It’s the oldest story in the book
Come see the taker being took
The world is full of Joes and Normas
Older woman, very well-to-do
Meets younger man, the standard cue
For two mechanical performers

BETTY
Just pack your things and let’s go. Look at me. JOE
Come on in. JOE
Right on the money
That’s Norma Desmond
That’s Norma Desmond
That’s Norma Desmond
That’s Norma Desmond

BETTY
Why did she call me? The address is ten thousand eighty-six, Sunset Boulevard. Look at my hands. It’s no time to begin a new life
Now I’ve finally made a perfect landing
I’m afraid there’s no room for a wife
Not unless she’s uniquely understanding
You should go back to Artie and marry the fool
And you’ll always be welcome to swim in my pool

BETTY
I can’t look at you any more, Joe. Hello, Miss Schaefer, you must forgive me for calling so late, but I really feel it’s my duty. BETTY
What’s going on, Joe? JOE
Yes, it’s quite a place, sleeps seventeen
Eight sunken tubs, a movie screen
A bowling alley in the cellar

BETTY
I didn’t come to see a house, Joe

JOE
Sunset Boulevard
Cruise the Boulevard
Win yourself a Hollywood palazzo
Sunset Boulevard
Mythic Boulevard
Valentino danced on that terrazzo

BETTY
Who’s it belong to? NORMA
You can’t! NORMA
Thank you, thank you, Joe, thank you…thank you. You want me to face that one-room hell
That murphy bed, that rancid smell
Go back to living on subsistence? …Joe… Say something, Joe

JOE
Have some pink champage and caviar
When you go visit with a star
The hospitality is stellar

BETTY
So this is where you’re living? JOE
…Or better yet, come over and see for yourself. What about all my fan-mail? Look at my face. What are you doing, Joe? Shout at me, strike me, but say you don’t hate me…Joe, Joe. Max! JOE
Goodbye, Norma. Well, exactly how much do you know about him? No! Have you gone mad? NORMA
No one ever leaves a star

REPORTER
And as dawn breaks over hte murder house, Norma Desmond, famed star of yesteryear,
Is in a state of complete mental shock. JOE
It’s been a bundle of laughs
And thanks for the use of the trinkets
A little ritzy for the copy desk back in Dayton

And there’s something you ought to know
I want to do you this favour
They’ll never shoot that hopeless script of yours
They only wanted your car

NORMA
That’s a lie! JOE
That’s right, Betty, why don’t you ask me?… Do you know what he lives on? Gillis…you do know a Mr. Do you know where he lives? Look under my eyes. What was that woman saying? I want to spare you a lot of sadness
I don’t know what he’s told you
But I can guarantee you
He doesn’t live with mother
Or what you’d call a roommate
He’s just a … Why am I so scared? JOE
Yes, I am, Norma. NORMA
Don’t. She sounded so weird
I don’t understand… Gillis? JOE
It’s Max who writes you letters
Your audience has vanished
They left when you weren’t looking
Nothing’s wrong with being fifty
Unless you’re acting twenty

NORMA
I am the greatest star of them all. Leave all these things I’ve never had? Yes, right now. Please, can you tell me what’s happening? You’re not leavine me? JOE
Just look around you

BETTY
That’s Norma Desmond. I did it because I need you. Leave this luxurious existence? You said you loved me tonight
Shall I just go? Miss Schaefer?… Don’t stand there hating me, Joe. NORMA
Hello, is this Gladstone 9281? I can’t say it
Poor Betty
You ask him
I’d love to hear his answer… NORMA
Don’t hate me, Joe. It’s about Mr. They still want me! JOE
You mean all my things?

Musicals – Sunset Boulevard – The Perfect Year lyrics

I’ll have the pool filled up for you. NORMA
What you’re trying to say is, you don’t want me to love you. NORMA
What right? I don’t need a crowded ballroom
Everything I want is here
If you’re with me
Next year will be
The perfect year

JOE
Before we play
Some dangerous game
Before we fan
Some harmless flame
We have to ask if this is wise
And if the game is worth the prize

With this wine and with this music
How can anything be clear? I had to get out
I needed to be with people my own age
To hear the sound of laughter
And mix with hungry actors
Underemployed composers
Nicotine-poisoned writers
Real people
Real problems
Having a really good time NORMA
Ring out the old
Ring in the new
A midnight wish
To share with you
Your lips are warm
My head is light
Were we alive before tonight? NORMA
There are no other guests. JOE
Cut out that “us” business. JOE
Norma, what I am trying to say is that I am the wrong guy for you. Say it! Surely you know that

JOE
Norma… NORMA
Who? JOE
The other guests. Do you want me to tell you? Say it! NORMA
What’s the matter with you? Just you and me. You need a big shot, someone with polo ponies, a Valentino… JOE
Max. NORMA
We’ll have a wonderful time next year. I’m in love with you. Get me a taxi. I have enough money to buy us anything we want. JOE
What right do you have to take me for granted? Let’s wait and see
It may just be
The perfect year

NORMA
It’s New Year’s Eve
And hopes are high
Dance one year in
Kiss one goodbye
Another chance, another start
So many dreams to tease the heart

We don’t need a crowded ballroom
Everything we want is here
And face to face
We will embrace
The perfect year

We don’t need a crowded ballroom
Everything we want is here
And face to face
We will embrace
The perfect year

JOE
So, what time are they supposed to get here? I’ll open up my house in Malibu, and you can have the whole ocean.
