Stereophonics — Postmen Do No Make Great Movie Heros Make lyrics

You're not in business to be popular,
It's become so much about personality,
I would regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms,
The most immediate way in which a human being can share with another,
The sense of what appears to be the human being,

First of all I choose the great roles,
And if none of these come, I choose the ones that pay the rent,
It was like an unfinished business in my life,
Wherever I went people would say "you would have made a great James Bond",

Yes

Lets face it, postmen do not great movie heroes make,
The imagination, the industry and intelligence, the three I's, out the door,
Do not try to push your way through the Rembrandts of the profession,
But do your up most to find an entry into the world of media,
There is the same surge of adrenalin you get just in front of the camera lens,

We have lost our sense of ritual and ceremony,
We blame the artists for not finding them for us,
Actors often behave like children, and so they're taken for children,
Such is an actors life,

Lets face it, postmen do not great movie heroes make,
They tramp discontently through the neighborhood,
And the only matter of contact with fellow human beings,
Tends to be, tends to be reading names and addresses off an envelope,
It is a great job,
There is the same surge of adrenalin, you get just before the camera lens,
Okay if I wasn't an actor I'd be a secret agent
