You oughta be in pictures, 
You're wonderful to see, 
You oughta be in pictures, 
Oh what a hit you would be! 

Your voice would thrill a nation, 
Your face would be adored, 
You'd make a great sensation 
With wealth and fame your reward;

When we're alone,

A fan worshiping at your throne. 

You oughta shine as brightly 
As Jupiter and Mars; 
You oughta be in pictures, 
My star of stars.
