I found America had another corner of my wallet
It's a well kept secret, thought that I had better swallow it
Thought they'd make me spit out the truth
Before they find you're lyin' about your youth

B movie that's all you're to me
Just a soft-soap story, don't want no woman to act on me
You can't stand it when it goes to reel to reel, to reel to reel
You can't stand it when I throw punch lines, you can't feel

All the time there's rule book in pretending
There's no one in the wings
And everybody's on the make
It's not your heart I want to break

Turn out the lights I'm thinking that I want to go to sleep now
But just give me a promise that I'm supposed to keep now
I don't want some fool asking me why
When I find you're finally making me cry

B movie that's all you're to me
Just a soft-soap story, don't want no woman to act on me
You can't stand it when it goes to reel to reel, to reel to reel
You can't stand it when I throw punch lines, you can't feel

You can't feel
You can't feel
You can't feel
You can't feel

You can't feel
You can't feel
