The Lyrics

Well he comes from London town
Fifty years he's been around
When he started out in bit parts on TV
From "The Day The Earth Caught Fire'
To bigger parts he did aspire
Now he's worked with rubber sharks and killer bees

I tip my hat to his fine contribution
His cockney tones and his posh elocution
Smile and grin at the films he has made
Sorry but I can't explain
Maybe you think I'm insane
But he just knows how to entertain
Talkin' "bout Michael Caine

The break it had to come
We knew it all along
When he fought off all those Zulus how we cheered
And the next year he was back
In Harry Palmer's specs and mac
And the ladies swooned when in "Alfie' he appeared

I tip my hat to his fine contribution
His cockney tones and his posh elocution
Smile and grin at the films he has made
Sorry but I can't explain
Maybe you think I'm insane
But he just knows how to entertain
Talkin' "bout Michael Caine
(Oh yeah!)

He led that gang in "The Italian Job'
Caused a traffic jam in order to rob
In "Battle of Britain he flew high in the sky
But in "Get Carter' why did he have to die?
Gunned down!

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

In some films he's not so hot
Like "Kidnapped' when he plays a Scot
But he redeemed himself in "The Man Who Would Be King'
And from "California Suite',
Through "Death Trap', "Water, and "Half Moon Street'
Whatever film he's in you can see the class he brings

I tip my hat to his fine contribution
His cockney tones and his posh elocution
Smile and grin at the films he has made
Sorry but I can't explain
Maybe you think I'm insane
But he just knows how to entertain
Talkin' "bout Michael Caine

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Been in some dross
I don't give a toss
