Come on out, please, let me stay here
I won't make any trouble
What's the idea? You can't stay in here
Come out, I tell you

But your dog will bite me
Oh, nonsense, Major doesn't bite girls
Come on, hurry up, it happens to be raining out here

I've seen all your movies, at least three or four times
And have on my wall, a large picture of you
But you were that pretty young star, so long ago
I'm born out of time with ya, what can I do?

Maybe, I'm silly to think we'd have made it
But what I'd had given to at least had a try
Oh, take me back with you nineteen thirty-nine
'Cause black and white movies are making me cry
And born out of time, we slipped hopelessly by

Sophia Loren, Bridgett Bardo, Jean Harlowe
Marilyn Monroe and Marlene Deitrich
You're better, you're better than any I'm seeing
Yes, you were a real beauty queen

Oh, listen, people, has it happened to you yet
The feeling that someone was born out of time?
Will you love someone, physically much too young for you?
Either way, it's a shame, time was so cruel
But it's nice that that generally, isn't the rule

Sophia Loren, Bridgett Bardo, Jean Harlowe
Marilyn Monroe and Marlene Deitrich
You're better, you're better than any I'm seeing
Yes, you were a real beauty queen
And Clark Gable's who I should have been
