The Lyrics

My latest parody, all about Tom Cruise! Enjoy...
I've bought all the DVDs that I can find.
Watching you be a fighter pilot - I know the lines.
The special features I always seem to explore.
Don't go, I just need to find some more.
'Cause I like your 80s hair,
And I like your 80s style.
Seeing you sitting in a cockpit,
or behind a bar tonight.
Because you're going to save the day,
And you know just what to do.
And you can make some big jumps,
You're Tom Cruise!

Go on and hit that person with a chair.
I wish you would hurry up and fight the bad guys over there.
I wish I had your get up and go
Quickly, I think something's gonna blow!
Can you drive that racing car?
Or drive that hovercraft too?
You really need to show me
All that you can do.
Oh no, the engine just won't start,
You'll have to think of something new.
Tell me how to save the day,
You're Tom Cruise!

Oh wow, the audience is in awe,
Can you drive that racing car?
Is there nothing you can't do.
Are you going to complete the franchise,
Or just leave it at two?
Oh no, the engine won't start,
You'll have to think of something new.
That film is well worth rewatching,
It stars Tom Cruise!

And so, put the DVD back in the drawer...
