Journey To Paramount lyrics
Journey To ParamountNORMA
There's been a call
What did I say
They want to see me right away
Joe, Paramount, they love our child
Mr. DeMille is going wild
Well, that's wonderful, Norma.
But it was some fool assistant
Not acceptable at all
It he wants me, then Cecil B.
Himself must call
I don't know if this is the time to stand on ceremony.
I've been waiting twenty years now
What's a few more days, my dear?
It's happened, Joe
I told you so
The perfect year
Now, let's go upstairs
Shouldn't you at least call back?
No; they can wait until I'm good and ready.
It took her three days and she was ready
She checked with her astrologer
Who sacrificed a chicken
She dressed up like a pharaoh
Slapped on a pound of make-up
And set forth in her chariot
Re-entering her kingdom
If you will pardon me, Madame, the shadow over the left eye is not quite balanced.
Thank you, Max.
Hey, that's enough of that.
To see Mr. DeMille. Open the gate.
Mr. DeMille is shooting. You need an appointment.
This is Norma Desmond. No appointment is necessary.
Why, if it isn't Miss Desmond. How have you been, Miss Desmond?
Fine, Jonesy. Open the gate.
You heard Miss Desmond.
They don't have a pass.
Stage 18, Miss Desmond.
Thank you, Jonesy. And teach your friend some manners.
Tell him without me, there wouldn't be any Paramount Studio.
Get me Stage 18. I have a message for Mr. DeMille.
What is it?
Norma Desmond is here to see you, Mr. DeMille.
She's here at the studio.
It must be about that appalling script of hers. What shall I say?
Maybe I could give her the brush.
Thirty million fans have given her the brush. Isn't that enough? Give me a minute.
Won't you come along, darling?
It's your script. It's your show. Good luck.
Thank you, darling.
Well, well, well.
Hello, Mr. DeMille.
The last time I saw you, we were someplace terribly gay. I was dancing on the table.
A lot of people were. Lindbergh had just landed.
You read the script, of course.
Now, I know how busy you are during shooting,
but I really think you could have picked up the phone yourself,
instead of leaving it so some assistant.
I don't know what you mean, Norma.
Yes, you do.
Come on in.
