Act Naturally - Buck Owens (also Ringo Starr)

They're gonna put me in the movies
They're gonna make a big star out of me
We'll make a film about a man that's sad and lonely
And all I have to do is act naturally

CHORUS
Well, I bet you I'm gonna be a big star
Might win an Oscar you can never tell
The movie's gonna make me a big star,
'Cause I can play the part so well

Well, I hope you come and see me in the movie
Then I'll know that you will plainly see
The biggest fool that ever hit the big time
And all I have to do is act naturally

We'll make a film about a man that's sad and lonely
Begging down upon his bended knee
I'll play the part but I won't need rehearsing
All I have to do is act naturally

                                             [CHORUS]

Ah yes, Buck Owens and the Buckaroos, featuring Don Rich on high harmony (before he took his motorcycle into that tree).

The "Bakersfield Sound," has been lately reprised by The Derailers.

Well, Genie, I woulda sworn it was written by Buck Owens, but it wasn't. Words and music were by Vonie Morrison and Johnny russell, copyright 1963, by Tree Publishing Co.

Subject: Lyr Add: ACT NATURALLY (from Homer & Jethro)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 16 Jan 04 - 10:46 PM

And here's a parody, copied from http://www.roughstock.com/cowpie/cowpie-songs/h/homer_and_jethro/act_naturally_no2.crd

ACT NATURALLY No. 2
As sung by Homer and Jethro

They're gonna put me in the Army.
They're gonna send me greetin's any day.
Ain't no need for me to burn my draft card,
'Cause I'm gonna have to go anyway.

Well, I can't tell my ankle from my elbow.
They'll put me in the awkward squad, I guess.
And when they see my natural stupidity,
I bet they send me straight to OCS.

I'll be nervous in the service.
A soldier I was never meant to be.
I'll be the sickest goldbrick in the Army,
And all I have to do is act naturally.

They're gonna put me on a troop ship,
Send me where the fightin' is the worst.
They can send me anywhere they want to,
But they're gonna have to catch me first.

And when them commies start a-shootin' at me,
I'm gonna be advancin' to the rear,
For I'm a lover-boy, I ain't a fighter.
Won't somebody get me out of here?

Maybe I can win a medal.
Then a happy hero I will be.
I'll use extreme precaution under cover,
And all I have to do is act naturally.

I hope you'll come to see me in the guardhouse.
I'm a prisoner of my Uncle Sam.
All I get to eat is bread and water,
But I like it better here, than Vietnam.

[As sung by Homer & Jethro on "Any News from Nashville?" (RCA Victor LSP-3538, 1966), "The Far Out World of Homer & Jethro" (RCA Victor LSP-4648, 1972), and "The Best of Homer & Jethro" (Good Music Record Co. 144626, 1996).]
