It ain't for everybody
Welcome to Hollywood, baby
(Take a picture) uh huh
You coming with? (Let's not even talk about it)
Let's do it (let's go)

I see your jealousy as you watching
You watching
It's kinda sexy to me how you watching
You watching

I see your face (I see your face)
You wanna touch it (you wanna touch it)
Come to my place (come to my place)
And let's discuss it (let's chop it up)
Tonight you'll be a superstar
Come let me sign you up
(Let's get into it)

[Chorus]
Ooo, it's the lights (you blinded by the)
Action (you need that)
Hollywood
Ooo, it's the lights (you blinded by the)
Satisfaction (you need that)
Hollywood

You gots to get it
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Do you want it?
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
But you don't need it
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Until you do
Oh, oh, oh
Until you do
Oh, oh, oh
Hey

I see your face (I see your face)
You wanna touch it (you wanna touch it)
Come to my place (come to my place)
And let's discuss it (let's chop it up)
Tonight you'll be a superstar
Come let me sign you up

[Chorus]

You hear 'em screamin'
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Cameras rollin'
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
You so addicted
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Like Hollywood
Oh, oh, oh
Nothin' like Hollywood
Oh, oh, oh
Hey

And everybody's warning you about it
And once you taste you can't live without it
Not 'cause you choose to not live without it
It's now a part of you (it's now a part of you)
And everybody's warning you about it
And once you taste you can't live

[Chorus]

Now you wanna be seen, male groupies
Now you've become what you once despised
James Dean, John Beluchi
Blow your whole life tryna live in the lights
Heroin's followin', Marilyn hoppin'
Over the edge just like Janice Joplin
River Phoenix, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Morrison
All of them ended by Hollywood

I see your face and
You wanna touch it and
Come to my place and we
Can discuss it--Hollywood
Welcome to Hollywood
