lyrics

When you were only five
I brought a stack of movies home from the library
But they were too scary
You learned the bare necessities
But that tiger and that snake were simply
Too much for you

Even Bugs Bunny was only funny to me
Mom said Elmer’s gun was no fun
And I wondered when we

When will we like the same movies?
Talk about the parts that made us laugh and cry
Figure out why and how
And when will we sit under a bowl of kettle corn?
When you were born I dreamed
Of watching you watching movies

When you were just a girlfriend
You liked that I was almost famous—
Not too big for you
I was a tiny dancer next to you
Now I can’t remember if that was you
Who saw that movie with me

Every Mother’s Day I make a family movie
Now reviews are in
For the best supporting actor no one wins

When did we like the same movies?
Talk about the ones that made us laugh and cry
Do you know why we stopped
Laughing at late-night porn?
And now we mourn and nobody wants to watch
Nobody watches our movies

Can this over-budget epic
Be saved by a great director?
And which of us will end up
In shreds on the cutting room floor?
I’m trying to keep on tying balloons
But we’re running out of gas
I don’t want to hold you down
But I don’t want her to go up too fast

Tried The Red Balloon
But you were shocked that kids could be so mean
You’d never seen such mean

Fast-forward a year
Another film with balloons
Old man and a book
Made me look

Now that we like the same movies
Will we talk about the parts
That made us laugh and cry?
Figure out why and how?
And when will we sit under a bowl of kettle corn?
When we are born we dream
