There's lots of things in this old world
Fancy cars and pretty girls
And somethin' I like more than sunny skies
The grandest thing I've ever seen
Are pictures on a movie screen
Wolfman, you're a fright, alright
But sure a sight for sore eyes

It's a world of kings and queens
Up there on that movie screen
It's a picnic crossin' River Kwai
The movies are great medicine
Thank you, Thomas Edison
For givin' us the best years of our lives

Citizen Kane, Caine Mutiny, Mutiny on the Bounty
The Bounty Hunters, the Hunters and the Sting
Thunder Road and Road to Rio, Rio Grande and Grand Hotel
Tell them Willie Boy was here with Bride of Frankenstein and Shane

I love anything that moves
Dancin' feet to horses' hooves
Payton Place to Dorothy's trip to Oz
Tom Mix to David Hedison
Thank you, Thomas Edison
For giving us the best years of our lives

I love Captain Blood and Elmer Fudd and Charlie Chan
Ben, Ben Hur, The Way We Were, True Grit and Music Man
Thunderball and Walking Tall and Jaws and Jesse James
Doctor No and Vertigo and Singin' in the Rain, Singin' in the Rain

Blood and Sand and Santa Fe
Dunaway and Getaway
Mexicali Rose and Rose Marie
Blackboard Jungle, Jungle Jim
Jim Thorpe All American
An American In Paris
Paris Blues, Blue Hawaii

I'm Teacher's Pet on Ship of Fools
The movies were my special school
I'm the graduate of Twelve O'Clock High
The movies are great medicine
I thank you, Tommy Edison
For givin' us the best years of our lives

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
The movies are the craziest
I'll be a movie nut until I die
The movies are great medicine
Thank you, Thomas Edison
For givin' us the best years of our lives

Roy Rogers
You gave us the best years of our lives
