Star Now

lyrics

Hello, Barbara, it's me again.
I called you 'cause I saw you on TV again.
They called you marvelous and I agree with them.
If I skip to the end, I bet you'll get yours yet.

I guess you're a star now, Barbara.
Have a cigar now, Barbara.
Celebrate. I don't hate you for it,
But you always said we'd be a constellation.

It's no mystery what your show's about.
And it's funny how your character was never in doubt
When you were kissing me. And I'm not calling you out,
But will your lips give me credit for your statuette?

I guess you're a star now, Barbara.
Have a cigar now, Barbara.
Celebrate. I don't hate you for it,
But you always said we'd be a constellation.

We never thought that we would make it past
Our same old low budget movie of the week.
We were only half-right, now I'm fading fast,
Holding a line that you won't speak.

I guess you're a star now, Barbara.
Have a cigar now, Barbara.
Celebrate. I don't hate you for it,
But you always said you'd be my consolation.
