Well, I'm not the kind to kiss and tell, but I've been seen with Farah
I've never been with anything less than a nine -- so fine
I've been on fire with Sally Field, gone fast with a girl named Bo
But somehow they just don't end up as mine.
It's a death defying life I lead, I take my chances
I die for a living in the movies and T.V.
But the hardest thing I ever do is watch my leading ladies
kiss some other guy while I'm bandaging my knee.
I might fall from a tall building, I might roll a brand new car
'cause I'm the unknown stuntman that made 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 Teegs, 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 that made Eastwood look so fine.*
They'll never make me President**, but I got the best first ladies
Some days I've got almost far as the eye can see, oh oui !
A morning dive with Jackie Smith, I crash in the night with Cheryl
But in the end they never stay with me.
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 smooth talker's kissing my girl I'm just kissing dirt
Yes, I'm the lonely stuntman that made a lover out of Burt.
*Hier endet die Fernsehfilmfassung - der Rest war für den Vorspann wohl zu lang ;-)
**wohl eine Anspielung auf Ronald Reagan - obwohl der nie so gefährliche Szenen spielte, daß er sich hätte doubeln lassen müssen, und reiten konnte der selber ;-)
