The director yells "Cut!"

That's the end of the scene

So come on and wrap it up

All nice and neat

They've finished a picture


And it's rather rare

but the film will be rated G

'Cause some people really still care

about what's on the screen

at the theater


And this is where careers can begin

on a soundstage and under the lights

Some climb the ladder from the bottom rung

and then hit the heights


And it's Hollywood

It's Hollywood

See the white sign on the hill

And it's Hollywood

It's Hollywood

The glamour really adds a thrill

And this is LA

the place where actors try to make it

But fame can come at a price

And some won't pay it

Beware! In the City of Angels

you'll rub with right and wrong

But Tinseltown's lure

is still going strong



And there will be snapshots

of the red carpet bling

So really act hot

and pose for the camera, please

a sexy photograph


Hurry and take a seat

The show's about to begin

And make a two minute speech

for your Grammy win

with jokes for laughs



And this what people dream about

Coming here and getting the glory

But I know many who never even

got past the unknown category


And it's Hollywood

It's Hollywood

See the white sign on the hill

And it's Hollywood

It's Hollywood

The glamour really adds a thrill

And this is LA

the place where actors try to make it

But fame can come at a price

And some won't pay it

Beware! In the City of Angels

you'll rub with right and wrong

But Tinseltown's lure

is still going strong



Listen and hear the screams

from your fans in your ear

During the concert as you sing

the whole crowd starts to cheer

some live just for this


And all those autographs

go along with the trade

Millions of people ask

for a paper signed with your name

That's their wish


And you get followed by reporters

as you drive back to your apartment

And you think about what you've gained

compared to what you had to part with


And it's Hollywood

It's Hollywood

See the white sign on the hill

And it's Hollywood

It's Hollywood

The glamour really adds a thrill

And this is LA

the place where actors try to make it

But fame can come at a price

And some won't pay it

Beware! In the City of Angels

you'll rub with right and wrong

But Tinseltown's lure

is still going strong

The camera keeps rolling on

I love the lyrics and the pacing! You are an honest voice in the wilderness of today's "culture".
