  • Hoo, Lord

    Well, I'm gonna ride a saber tooth horse through the Hollywood hills
    The farther west, the farther out
    Yeah, that's the way I feel
    Well, I dig the dirt an' I dig the dust I barbecue my meals

    Ridin' wild on a paisley dragon through the Hollywood hills, yeah
    Huh, Hollywood hills

    Well, I'm gonna ride a saber tooth horse through the Hollywood hills
    Just don't show me anything 'cause that's the way I feel
    Well, I dig the dirt an' I dig the dust
    I barbecue my meals

    Ridin' wild on a paisley dragon through the Hollywood hills, yeah
    Huh, Hollywood hills

    Passion dripping from the coyote's eyes
    He can taste his blood
    An' blood never lies pale face die

    True men don't kill coyotes
    True men don't kill coyotes

    Well, I'm gonna ride a saber tooth horse through the Hollywood hills
    The farther west, the farther out yeah, that's the way I feel
    Well, I dig the dirt an' I dig the dust I barbecue my meals

    Ridin' wild on a paisley dragon through the Hollywood hills, yeah
    Huh, Hollywood hills

    Passion dripping from the coyote's eyes
    He can taste his blood
    An' blood never lies pale face die

    True men don't kill coyotes
    True men don't

    Well, I'm gonna ride a saber tooth horse Through the Hollywood hills
    Just don't tell me anything 'cause that's the way I feel
    Well, I dig the dirt an' I dig the dust I barbecue my meals

    Ridin' wild on a paisley dragon Through the Hollywood hills, yeah
    Huh, Hollywood hills

    Passion dripping from the coyote's eyes
    He can taste his blood
    An' blood never lies pale face die

    True men don't kill coyotes
