Lyrics - Avenue "A"

Back

You want to be an actress

And step down on the stage

You are going to the school juliard

To learn how to strut so high and proud

Make me stand up and notice

That you are not afraid

I believe in you

And I believe you'll have it made

I cut out my heart

And nail it away

Save it for your summer holiday

You'll forget about me

When your name is on the marquee

And the rich boys come out to play

Upon Avenue "A"

You've got your reasons

And I've got mine

I'll nail your cards and letter on the wall

To remind me that you are still out there

Because I won't know the girl on the screen at all

Cut out my heart

And nail it away

And save it for your summer holiday

You'll forget about me

When your name is on the marquee

And your up on Avenue "A"

Cut out my heart

And nail it away

And save it for your summer holiday

Teach them how to laugh and feel

When they put you to the test

For there is something special in you

That you must express

Don't forget about me

When your name is on the marquee

And the rich men come to stay

Up on Avenue "A"

Up on Avenue "A"
