The Unknown Stuntman

This song is by Wise Guys and appears on the album Haarige Zeiten (1996).

Well, I'm not the kind to kiss and tell
But I've been seen with Farrah
I've never been seen with anything than a nine
So fine

I've been on fire with Sally Field
Gone fast with a girl named Bo
But somehow they did not end up as mine

It's a death defyin' life I lead
I take my chances
I die for a living in the movies and TV
But hardest thing I ever do
Is watch my leading ladies
Kiss some other guy
While I'm bandagin' my knee

I might fall from a tall building
I might roll a brand new car
'Cause I'm the unknown stuntman
That makes Redford such a star

I've never spent much time in school
But I've taught ladies plenty
It's true I hire my body out for pay (hey, hey)

I've gotten burned over Cheryl Tiegs
Blown up for Raquel Welch
But when I wind up in the hay,
It's only hay (hey, hey)

I might jump an open drawbridge
Or Tarzan from a vine
'Cause I'm the unknown stuntman

They'll never make me president but I've got the best first ladies.
Some days I've got 'em as far as the eye can see.
A morning dive with Jackie Smith, I crash in the night with Cheryl,
But in the end they never stay with me.

And I might fall from a tall building so Burt Reynolds don't get hurt,
I might leap a mighty canyon so he can kiss and flirt.
While that smoth talker's kissin' my girl I'm just kissin' dirt,
Yes, I'm the lonely stuntman that made a lover out of Burt.
