A parody of the song, "Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?" My apologies to Paula Cole.
WHERE HAVE ALL THE SILENT MOVIE STARS GONE?
(a parody of Paula Cole's "Where Have all the Cowboys Gone?)


De Mille gets us ready,
The cast and crew are all steady
Why don't we go to our dressing rooms for a break?
We already made plans to be famous before the next take

Where is my Buster Keaton?
Where is my Spanish-style Home?
Where is my Happy Ending?
Where have all The Silent Movie Stars Gone?

The maid will raise the children
As we attend every Hollywood premiere

Where is my Harold Lloyd?
Where is my California Sunset?
Where is my Happy Ending?
Where have all The Silent Movie Stars Gone?

I'm wearing my new Flapper fur tonight
As the press takes our picture for Variety.
Will everyone back home be green with envy?

We finally got that million-dollar contract at Paramount,
and we moved into that Spanish style home in Beverly Hills
You made friends with The Fairbanks, and Chaplin
they come over for drinks almost every day of the week

Mary, and I will go out dancing, while you have cigars and brandy with the boys

Where is my Valentino?
Where is my Rolls Royce?
Where is my Happy Ending?
Where have all The Silent Movie Stars Gone?

Where is my Jay Gatsby?
Where is his fabulous lifestyle?
Where is my champagne and caviar?
Where have all The Silent Movie Stars Gone?
