The Ballad of Dean and Brando
by David Kraai

Dean and Brando went out for a talk
Dean never came back
He met a girl and moved to Italy
And Brando was left just to practice his walk

Dean and Brando they grew up together
Dean was full of fear and love
He wanted one chance just to cash it all in
And Brando always knew he’d end up alone

Because things they change like the stars in our movies
People love you and then they die
Things they change like the stars in our movies
People are dead even when they’re alive

Dean and Brando now they don’t even talk
Dean’s too busy just faking his hand
He didn’t think their brotherhood was any good
And Brando held on until he couldn’t even stand

Dean and Brando were the best of their school
Dean was troubled but that Brando he was wild
He gave up only once in his life
And that's when Brando had to face that Dean was gone

Because things they change like the stars in our movies
People love you and then they die
Things they change like the stars in our movies
People are dead even when they’re alive

Dean and Brando went out for a talk
Dean done never came back
He met a girl and moved to Italy
And Brando was left just to practice his walk
