lyrics

VERSE 1

I just got back from the big blockbuster
Playing on the multiplex screen
Lots of spectacle and explosions
As polished a film as I’ve ever seen

It wasn’t half bad, but it struck me as odd
The credits took so long to get through
‘Cause all the efforts of all those people
Don’t match what just a couple of friends can do

CHORUS 1

Charlie makes movies about monsters
Charlie makes films in his backyard
Do one take, then it’s on to the next shot
Family and neighbors make up the stars

VERSE 2

His films create a remarkable world
Filled with killers and creatures galore
Still they are as good-natured as ice cream
Sans any sex or bad language or gore

HIs characters have a unique way of speaking
His crowd scenes look conspicuously small
But you’ll come away with a grin on your face
And that’s really the point of it all

CHORUS 2

Charlie makes movies about monsters
Charlie makes films in his backyard
Most of the world may ignore them for now
But every time he makes one he feels like a star

BRIDGE

You’d be amazed at the special effects
That you are able to get
Just by using pillow fill
Roto software, glass and a little bit of skill….

And a whole lot of will

CHORUS 1 & 2

Charlie makes movies about monsters
Charlie makes films in his backyard
Do one take, then it’s on to the next shot
Family and neighbors make up the stars

Charlie makes movies about monsters
Charlie makes films in his backyard
Most of the world may ignore him for now
But every time he makes one he knows he’s a star
