Song lyrics


Hi-diddle-dee-dee
An actor's life for me
A high silk hat and a silver cane
A watch of gold with a diamond chain


Hi-diddle-dee-day
An actor's life is gay
It's great to be a celebrity
An actor's life for me


Hi-diddle-dee-dum
An actor's life is fun
Hi-diddle-dee-dee
An actor's life for me
A wax mustache and a beaver coat
A pony cart and a billy goat


Hi-diddle-dee-dum
An actor's life is fun
You wear your hair in a pompadour
You ride around in a coach and four
You stop and buy out a candy store
An actor's life for me!

It's great to be a celebrity
It's great to be a celebrity
  Hi-diddle-dee-dee an actor's life for me
Hi-diddle-dee-dee an actor's life for me
You ride around in a coach and four
You ride around in a coach and four
  You stop and buy out a candy store
You stop and buy out a candy store
