Cut, Print... Moving On is an original song first featured in On Broadway, the first episode of the second season of Smash. Being an original song, it was written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. The version released as a single features Katharine McPhee (Karen Cartwright) on lead vocals.

In the context of Bombshell, the number sees Marilyn in Hollywood on her next film, as the divorce from Joe becomes official, and the film wraps. Marilyn resolves to keep going with the only family she knows, the film crew. They smile at her attempt at camaraderie, but long fed up with her on-set behavior, they throw all her wrap presents away, which she discovers as the curtain falls on Act One. 


I know I've kept you waiting
I know I made you mad
But this time that we've spent creating
Was the best time I ever had

Now I love to sit with memories
But they won't come until we're gone
So give me a kiss
And cut, print... moving on

Tell me a brand-new story
Together we'll turn the page
The grass is always greener
On some new technicolor stage

And if a duckling never swims
She'll never become a swan
Yes, I'm diving in
So cut, print... moving on

Yes, there have been nights I'll long to relive
But sometimes you gotta roam
You can't fight when something's gotta give
But you'll always be my home away from home

Now I like to play a love scene
But don't let it last too long
Play me the eight-bar intro
Of some new, lush, romantic song

I'm not afraid to take that leap
With you to depend upon
Now tell me your name
Cut, print... moving on

We told the same jokes, we breathed the same air
We couldn't tell night from day
But just like the end of a love affair
We all know the time comes to break away

Studio Staff:
It's time to break away!

Last year we all were strangers
This year, we're life long friends
I know that this location
Is not where our story ends

Get up, cause the rat race never ends
This life is a marathon
And I plan to run so much more than a sprint
What's next? Well, I can't even give you a hint
But boys, that's a wrap
So cut, print... moving on!
And on!
Moving on!
