about

recorded in Bath 1987...a version of this song about Veronica Lake who I had a crush on.....

lyrics

Do you ever wonder why
A human being can shine so bright
They seem to be a star
When I see you on the silver screen
You know i wanna be
Right where you are
I'm a guy with no fedora
Veronica you know i adore ya
Constantly....
I want you so bad
I'm Alan Ladd for you
Veronica

The morning always comes
I'm still awake - I'm all alone
Yet I always see your face
Veronica you know I bear for you
The longing of the whole human race
Your portrait's on the wall
Veronica you know I can't help but fall for you
I want you so bad
I'm Alan Ladd for you
Veronica

The time will surely come
When I can get myself aboard
A plane to Hollywood
Then you'll find me knocking on your door
Raising my hat kiss you on the cheek
And say "My my Veronica
You know you're looking good"
Right now I'm sweeping up the cinema floor
My heart is full - you know it couldn't hold
More love for you
I want you so bad
I'm Alan Ladd for you
Veronica
