Their names are written in concrete!

Don't step on Greta Garbo as you walk down the boulevard,
F#m
Bm

She looks so weak and fragile that's why she tried to be so hard
Bm
F#m
But they turned her into a princess
G
A
And they sat her on a throne,
D7

But she turned her back on stardom,

Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain.

If you covered him with garbage,
G

George Sanders would still have style,
F#m
Bm
And if you stamped on Mickey Rooney
G
A
He would still turn round and smile,
Bm
F#m
But please don't tread on dearest Marilyn
G

cos she's not very tough,
D7
G
She should have been made of iron or steel,
A

But she was only made of flesh and blood.
