Coldplay Rocker Chris Martin Debuts Original Song About Julia Roberts’ Famous Smile

The Coldplay frontman, who is a friend of Roberts and husband Danny Moder, also performed a rendition of the Roy Orbison classic “Oh, Pretty Woman” which was featured on the soundtrack of her 1990 film.

Mona Lisa, who?

Coldplay rocker Chris Martin made an unannounced appearance on Friday night at the amfAR Gala Los Angeles — where friend Julia Roberts was being feted with the Award of Courage — to perform a set of songs that included a rendition of the Roy Orbison classic “Oh, Pretty Woman.”

If that weren’t enough to captivate the crowd of A-listers that included Sean Penn, Kate Hudson, Goldie Hawn, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Ryan Murphy, Martin followed it up by asking host James Corden to join him on stage for a duet on “Nothing Compares 2 U.”

(The event, held at Ron Burkle’s Green Acres Estate in Beverly Hills and sponsored by Harry Winston, MAC Viva Glam and AMTD Group with Moet Hennessy, Cadillac and PatBO, raised $2 million for amfAR.)

He explained why they picked that Sinead O’Connor classic.

“We’re singing this to Julia basically because we grew up fancying her and this is kinda the only song that says it, right?” Martin said, to which the multi-talented Corden answered, “Yes, certainly the notion of the chorus is how everybody feels.”

Speaking of feels, there are few who don’t adore Roberts’ mega-watt smile.

So somebody should bestow some sort of honor on Martin who then closed out his set with an original song he wrote that was completely devoted to her killer grin, a track that proved he knows her filmography well with mentions of everything from Mystic Pizza to Erin Brockovich.

Curiously absent: Mona Lisa Smile.

Check out the video below as well as the lyrics.

Chris Martin’s “Julia Roberts’ Smile”

When there are things in the world that get me so down

The weight of that violence that cracks the ground

I can’t walk the sewers no more, I’m scared of that clown

I ask all the mystics as they sat still

How do we survive in a world of ill

They said you watch ‘Mystic Pizza’ on ‘Notting Hill’

Because in those movies you get to see

A beautiful piece of god’s dentistry 

When you see that how hopeless can you be

When you watch ‘Pretty Woman,’ ‘Erin Brockovich’

Those miraculous molars of faith’s light switch

it’s the smile that lifts you when life’s a bitch

It’s the smile that lights up the whole darn earth

Even when she plays a spider or when she plays a smurf

That Julia Roberts smile, it stretches for half a mile

It never goes out of style

It just shines like a great big star

Watching ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’ and looking at that beautiful grin

On top of that lucky chin

Whoa, now look at just how happy we are

Take it now …

When things in the world are beyond belief

Just give me that set of big pearly teeth

And give me that smile that shines so bright

And I’ll know everything’s gonna be alright. Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright 

Where’s that Julia Roberts smile

It stretches for half a mile

It’s wider than the River Nile

It’s a great constellation of light

Oh watching my best friend’s wedding, and looking at that beautiful grin

I’ll never think of giving in because I know everything will be alright

La-la-la-lo-lo-lo …

When my head starts to spin, I just stand and look at that beautiful grin

I never think of giving in, I know that everything will be alright

Take it fellas …

Thanks a lot everybody we’re done

Thanks a lot everybody we’re done …

What do you think?
