Verse:
  G                           C
They're gonna put me in the movies
  G                                  D
They're gonna make a big star out of me
  G                                              C
They'll make a film about a man that's sad and lonely
     D                        G
And all I gotta do is Act Naturally.


Middle:
        D                      G
Well I bet you I'm gonna be a big star
         D                           G
I might win an Oscar  You can never tell
      D                         G
The movies gonna make me a big star
     A                       D
'Cos I can play the part so well.


Verse:
We'll make a film about a man that's sad and lonely
And begging down upon his bended knee
I'll play the part  But I won't need rehearsin' 
Cos all I gotta do is Act Naturally.

The biggest fool that ever hit the big time
And all I gotta do is Act Naturally.
