Hollywood lyrics

They say people out in hollywood
Live their life out in black and white
Theyre living out a technicolor dream
Next day theyre a star overnight

Not like living in new york
Man, its tougher
Not like in london town
Boy, you suffer

Nobody give a break
When youre down on your luck
Everybodys on the take
When youre down on your luck
You cant make a mistake
When youre down on your luck

People out in hollywood
They got a lot of class
You see the boys strutting down the boulevard
Trying to make a pass

Not like in new york
Its high rise, its concrete and complex
Not like in london town
It reigns down on its subjects

Nobody give a damn
When youre down on your luck
Nobody understands
When youre down on your luck
Lady chance, she wont dance
When youre down on your luck

People out in hollywood
They can make it to the stars
They can reach the screen
Drive around in big expensive convertible cars

Not like in new york
All youve got is broadway
Not like in the west end of london
You cant make it no way

Nobody give a damn
When youre down on your luck
Nobody understands
When youre down on your luck
Youve got to strut your stuff
When youre down on your luck

You cant take it easy, it aint good enough
When youre down on your luck
Everybodys on the make
When youre down on your luck
Nobody give a fair deal
When youre down on your luck

Nobody understands my uncle sam
When youre down on your luck
Im ready for the dance
When youre down on your luck
I gotta make a dollar holler
When youre down on your luck
