They're gonna put me in the movies
  G                                  D
They're gonna make a big star out of me
  G                                              C
They'll make a film about a man that's sad and lonely

'Cos I can play the part so well.


Verse:
We'll make a film about a man that's sad and lonely
And begging down upon his bended knee
I'll play the part  But I won't need rehearsin' 
Cos all I gotta do is Act Naturally.

The biggest fool that ever hit the big time
And all I gotta do is Act Naturally.
