Piece of the Cake

All I wanted was a piece of the cake

But judging by your face you've ate it all

All I wanted was the chance for a place in your diary

But you had to throw it all into the sea, a sea of loneliness

And that to me is a feeling that I detest

Seems so silly now, as the waters flow, to wash me back again

 

All I wanted was the one last remake of Hollywood

You the King me the Queen

For all I needed was our sexes confused so you could play the part of me

In a typical scene, say from Gone with the wind

Where Gable takes his Scarlet in his arms

Seems so silly now, as the waters flow, to wash me back again

 

You only smile once in a while and it shows

You only laugh when things go wrong, Heaven knows

For all I know you could be at least thirty three, a garden gnome

Or a mundane character

You're an actress, that I know because

 

All I wanted was a piece of the cake

But judging by your face you've ate it all

All I wanted was the chance for a place in your diary

But you had to throw it all into the sea …
