The Lyrics

I thought the Academy Awards needed a Theme Song....
Burbank!
Hollywood setting
And the stars are awaiting the statues they're getting
The creme de la creme of the film world in a
Show that will stretch on for hours

They walk down the Red Carpet
With dresses and jewels, but they don't own it
Showing off new faces that don't even move
Waving to all the paparazzi and the TV cameras too

It's Lights, It's Cameras, It's Action, It's This Place

One Night in Burbank, and the stars are in flocks
To show the Whole Wide World how young they are
Pulled back face lifts and too much shots of Botox
In Hollywood to remain a movie star
You must look young, even though how bizarre

This town is not like any other
With all this plastic skin, they'll melt in the sun brother

It's surreal, if you take the chance to think
Their skin is so tight they can never again blink

My God, what happen to their faces

Lips once small and sweet ( So Sweet )
Injected with stuff, now the size of Prime Rib Beef
A chest that must be a triple D
That looks even bigger on my HD
I bet she can't even see her own waistline

One Night in Burbank to show off their assets
So that they will stand out and be noticed
One Night in Burbank in their finest plastics
Throwing kisses with their frozen lips
A Bride of Frankenstein that went a miss

We're all gonna be a witness
To the new Reality Show, Name That Actress
We'll watch to see if we can locate
Any parts left over from their former face

And thank God I'm just watching the show
DVR-ing it


I don't see it ever stopping
Along with the alcohol and pill popping
Not to mention the binging and bulimia
I guess this is what Hollywood dreams are made of

So just sit back and be amazed like me
The sights to see
Tonight on ABC

One Night in Burbank, for the Academy Awards Show
And the stiffest actresses you will see
They all look like they came from Madame Tussauds
An imitation of what they used to be
A red carpet full of life-size Barbies

One Night in Burbank, plastic surgery central
There's so much nip and tuck everywhere
One Night in Burbank, it is all celebral
You can't help but just look and stare
It's Hollywood's version of health care

Demo Dan - TOS "One Night In Bangkok" is from "Chess", while in your fine parody "Chest" is involved. Fun take on the whole parade. ;D

You capture the flavor and the decadence that the excellent OS does for Bangkok as well as the artificiality of Burbank. You rock!
