        Starlight open wide
        starlight open up you door
        This is New York calling
        with movies from the street
        Movies with real people
        what you get is what you see
        Starlight open wide
        Andy's Cecil B. DeMille

        Come on L.A. give us a call
        We've got superstars who talk
        they'll do anything at all
        Ingrid, Viva, Little Joe
        Baby Jane, and Eddie S.
        But you'd better call us soon
        before we talk ourselves to death

        Starlight open wide
        everybody is a star
        Split-screen eight hour movies
        we've got color, we've got sound
        Won't you recognize us
        we're everything you hate
        Andy loves old Hollywood movies
        he'll scare you hypocrites to death

        You know that shooting up's for real
        That person who's screaming
        that's the way he really feels
        We're all improvising
        five movies in a week
        If Hollywood doesn't call us
        we'll be sick

        Starlight open wide
        do to movies what you did to art
        Can you see beauty in ugliness
        or is it playing in the dirt
        There are stars out on the New York streets
        we wanna capture them on film
        But if no one wants to see 'em
        we'll make another and another

        Starlight let us in that magic room
        We've all dreamt of Hollywood
        it can't happen too soon
        Won't you give us a million dollars the rent's due
        Andy will give you two movies and a painting
        starlight open wide
