The Statler Brothers Movies Lyrics

Last updated: 03/16/2006 11:00:00 AM

There's lots of things in this old world fancy cars and pretty girls
And something I like more than sunny skies
The grandest thing I've ever seen are pictures on a movie screen
Wolfman you're a fright alright but sure a sight for sore eyes
It's a world of kings and queens up there on that movie screen
It's a picnic Crossin' River Kwai
The movies are great medicine thank you Thomas Edison
For giving us the best years of our lives

Citizen Kane Caine Mutiny Mutiny on the Bounty
The Bounty Hunters and Hunters and the Sting
Thunder Road and Road to Rio Rio Grande and Grand Hotel
Tell them Willie Boy was here with bride of Frankenstein and Shane
I love anything that moves dancin' feet to horses hoofs
Payton Place to Dorothy's trip to Oz
Tom Mix to David Hedison thank you Thomas Edison
For giving us the best years of our lives

I love Captain Blood and Elmer Fudd and Charlie Chan
Ben Ben Hur The Way We Were True Grit and Music Man
Thunderball and Walking Tall and Jaws and Jesse James
Doctor No and Vertigo and Singing in the Rain singing in the rain
Blood and Sand and Santa Fe Dunaway and Gataway Mexicali Rose and Rose Marie
Blackboard Jungle Jungle Jim Jim Thorpe All American
An American In Paris Paris Blues Blue Hawaii
I'm Teacher's Pet on Ship of Fools the movies were my special school
I'm the Gradute of Twelve o'clock High
The movies are great medicine I thank you Tommy Edison
For giving us the best years of our lives
One flew over the cocoo's nest the movies are the craziest
I'll be a movie nut until I die
The movies are great medicine thank you Tommy Edison
For giving us the best years of our lives (Roy Rogers)
You gave us the best years of our lives
