  • I had a dream on a back lot
    I saw my life like a long shot
    I smile at faces in a picture parade
    Of all the stills from the films that you've made
    We would see in the Essoldo
    Up there drinking coffee on the Giocondo

    Elstree, remember me
    I had a part in a B movie
    I played a man from History
    Elstree, look at me
    Now I work for the BBC
    Life is not what it used to be

    I took no dives in the fight scene
    I had a stuntman keep my suit clean
    There's no technology to fake up a song
    They stop the orchestra if you get it wrong

    Elstree, remember me,
    I had a part in a B movie
    I played a man from history
    Elstree, look at me,
    Now I work for the BBC,
    Life is not what it used to be,
    Elstree

    They made a field into a war zone
    I beat the enemy on my own
    All the bullets just went over my head
    There's no reality and no one dead, in

    Elstree, remember me,
    I had a part in a B movie
    I played a man from history
    Elstree, look at me
    now I work for the BBC
    Life is not what it used to be
    Elstree
    Elstree
    Elstree
    Elstree
    Elstree

  • George from Las Vegas, NvAlexander Baron, you are a moron! Downes and Horn, while producers, did NOT write Bohemian Rhapsody, and did not produce the video either. They did produce the first video ever shown on MTV, 'Video killed the radio star', and went on to join and produce Yes and Asia. And, BTW, how can Elstree be in London and also in Hertfordshire?
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandCliff Richard's "Summer Holiday" was just one of many films recorded at the legendary Elstree studios.
