It ain't for everybody Welcome to Hollywood, baby Take my picture You comin' with? Let's not even talk about it Let's do it Let's go
I see your jealousy as you're watching (I see you watching) You're watching (It's all good) It's kinda sexy to me (I love it) How you're watching, you're watching I see your face (I see your face) You want to touch it (You want to touch it) Come to my place (Come to the crib) And let's discuss it (Let's chop it up) Tonight you'll be (Tonight you goin' be a superstar, baby) A superstar Come, let me sign you up (Let's get into it)
[Chorus] Oh, it's the lights (You're blinded by the) Action! (You need that) Hollywood (uh, uh, uh, uh) Oh, it's the lights (You're blinded by the) Satisfaction (You need that) Hollywood (uh, uh, uh, uh, c'mon)
Paparazzi spots me in the lobby of my high rise I hide behind my shades because the fame is blindin' my eyes My god, I know how Ozzy Oz must have felt when he was Oz hot As I have got, I have got to make this stop People often warn me that the fame ain't for the faint of heart It'll change those 'cause if they had love for you into strangers When the fame starts, it's a chain reaction Locomotion like when a train departs Stranger things have happened Rappin', stackin' platinum plaques Born in Brooklyn, got a place in Manhattan Goin' back to Brooklyn to escape the madness When your friends is Chris and Gwyneth When your girl is more famous than Juventus Then it's time to get all your windows tinted Keep your eyes squinted, it's goin' flash any minute The music biz is like musical chairs It's about where you stand when the music stop spinnin'
You got to get it Do you want it? But you don't need it Till you do, till you do
Hey mister, page sixer A-lister, you're in the midst of The ride of your life, but you gotta keep them hits up Can't put your guard down, gotta keep your mitts up Take a sip, sir, it's so intoxicating ain't it? Try not to get jaded Hollywood's been good to ya Startin' to feel like buzz to ya Don't lie, go on fly, you're addicted to the light Without the fame, how you gon' survive? It's like bein' on heroin, you so high
And everybody's warning you about it (I tried to tell you) And once you taste it you can't live without it (It's addicting) Not 'cause you choose to not live without it (you sure you want this, baby?) It's now a part of you, it's now a part of you (It's a part of you) And everybody's warning you about it And once you taste it you can't leave
Wanna be seen now, groupies Now you've become what you once despised James Dean, John Belushi, blow your whole life trying to live in the lights Heroin's following, Marijuana hopping over the edge It's like Janis Joplin River Pheonix, Jimi Hendrix Jimmy Morrison, all of them ended by Hollywood Thank God for Hollywood Hollywood You sure you want this, baby? Hollywood, it's the most addicting drug in the world You want the fame You want the lights
