Released: February 11, 2013
By: Smash

Episode: The Phenomenon

At Your Feet is an original song first featured in The Phenomenon, the fourteenth episode of the second season of Smash. It was written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. The version released as a single features Bernadette Peters (Leigh Conroy) and Sophia Caruso on lead vocals.

The number within Bombshell sees a flash back to the 10-year-old Norma Jeane, who is being dropped off at Grauman's Chinese Theatre by her single mother, Gladys Baker, a mentally-unstable film cutter who uses the courtyard filled with movie stars' foot and hand prints to babysit for her daughter.

LyricsEdit

Gladys:
Darling, every Saturday it's our tradition
I give you a nickel for a days admission
Then Mommy has to run, ah, but that won't stop your fun
'Cause you get to see whose shoes you fit
Hey, Grauman, can you babysit?

Young Norma Jeane:
Mom, do you have to leave me alone here?

Gladys:
Norma Jeane, you know I have to work. And what do you mean alone? This place is full of people! And not just people - stars. Nothing bad could ever happen to you here.

Some folks wish on stars above
They want money, fame and love
We like our stars more concrete
So the stars that you're wishin' on are at your feet

Some like night to dream what's not
We prefer this sunny spot
To see the light and feel the heat
When the stars that you're wishin' on are at your feet

I have to work each Saturday
So my baby sees the matinee
You watch the movie, then rush out
And put your left foot and your right foot in
And shake those dreams about!

Most girls dream to touch the sky
Wide awake is when we fly
Down the boulevard, where it's hard to not feel high
When you hear the song and feel the beat
'Cause the stars that you're wishin' on are at your feet

Now, go on Norma Jeane, go see whose hands match yours.

Young Norma Jeane:
Momma, who's your favorite?

Gladys:
Mary Pickford, Clara Bow
Their impressions make a show
And you're in a front row seat
Where the stars that you're wishin' on are at your feet

Tap in time with Fred Astaire
Maybe someday you'll be there
Ginger Rogers can't compete
When the stars that you're wishin' on are at your feet

We don't watch the skies for a star's ascent
We prefer a square of wet cement
With famous names that fill the screen
And maybe some day one will spell out "Norma Jeane"!

Young Norma Jeane:
Maybe some day one will spell out "Norma Jeane"!

Gladys:
It's showtime, let the dream begin
With each star who's ever been
Step inside the footsteps that you should follow in

So, I leave you in the best of hands
In this most Chinese of wonderlands
Your dreams will truly be complete
When the stars that you're wishin' on are at your feet!
Ain't she sweet!
