    Hollywood Records

    (whalen)

    LA is the place to be, and if it aint as shocking as it used to be

    take the bullet out your head

    put it back in the gun

    get your finger on the trigger

    welcome, everybody, to the city of sound

    they feast on the defeated

    turn the city around

    all they want to do is get up on your action.

    let em go.

    my brothers are all proud rockers

    wild and aloof and trippin on acid.

    my sisters are all stun stunners

    wired to the roof and rolling on adam.

    baby you live like a suicide

    hell, somebody’s got to stand up and die

    well, i think i live down in hollywood

    never liked no fraud who wastes his money for food

    for fifteen-minute freaks

    to fan the flannel flame

    cuz he used you, man.

    come on,

    pass the pipe and take the test

    cuz youre the young lee harvey

    man, you’re david koresh,

    and if you dont dig that

    why dont you go home

    and watch some tivo, fucker

    my sisters are all nice rockers

    shoes to the roof, and looking up at my way.

    my brothers are all jean-cutters,

    glued to the tube and jumping like an osprey.

    the hey hey never let me down

    they love the sound of it getting around

    and we say, oh

    american girl

    fill my heart with gladness, lord

    you gotta save my soul

    clean my mouth of sadness,

    lord

    my brothers are all proud rockers

    trippin on acid.

    my sisters are all stun stunners

    rolling on Adam.

    x2

    wash these devils off

    star time

    rock n roll

    make up your mind

    to this world, come on,

    get ready to let it rock on

    star time

    we’ll steal the show

    so many miles to goooooooo

    and let it rock on

    get ready

    to let it

    rock on

    x3
