The George Clooney Song

from by Jonah Knight



Set in a South Dakota-Adjacent state, The George Clooney Song is a true story somewhat sort of in a way inspired by frequently not really being mistaken for George Clooney.


The George Clooney Song

I don't dance, but I got out and danced after I kidnapped the groom and the bride
The soundtrack played and the whole room swayed and I happened to look over to the side
Our eyes locked I guess I left a good impression even though I didn't shave for the wedding

Cue your entrance into the room
You know the camera is rolling
Are you my leading lady, maybe?
I could be George Clooney

Out by the elevator I'll write you a letter, but can you hear my voiceover when you read it?
We finally had a beer and when the montage clear the story took a turn

I thought that I was cast in a lite romantic comedy
But the rewrite says it's a drama so I guess that the joke's on me

Cue the fight scene in your bedroom
You know the camera is rolling
Are you my leading lady, maybe?
Is life really a movie?
If you're my leading lady, baby
Where's my Hollywood ending?

I got a letter from her mom apologizing for the behavior of her daughter
She said I should keep in touch she said her daughter is a nut I think this movie is almost over

I put your family on my Christmas card list
Because I think that they're the ones I really miss
And ever since that night when I slept on your brother's floor
Well I'll admit to thinking of you
And I'll admit I never really knew you
I'm taking off from the land of Lincoln
And as the credits start to roll I just can't help thinkin'

Cue my exit from the scene now
You know the camera is rolling
You're not my leading lady baby
But I'm still George Clooney
Cuz I know life is a movie, baby
Without a Hollywood ending
And since life is a movie, baby
I'll be George Clooney...
