Buck Owens Act Naturally Lyrics

 

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 gotta do is act naturally

Well, I'll bet you I'm a-gonna be a big star

Might win an Oscar you can't 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's ever hit the big time

And all I gotta do is act naturally

We'll make a scene 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'll have to do is act naturally

Well, I'll bet you I'm a-gonna be a big star

Might win an Oscar you can't 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's ever hit the big time

And all I gotta do is act naturally
