In Hollywood (Everybody Is A Star)

Album: Village People (1977)
  • Take a bus, a train or a plane to Hollywood
    Go there and then change your name
    You dye your hair out there, it's part of the game
    You're gonna be a star, a big star

    Tell the bank that you need a loan
    Go sell your house and every little thing that you own
    You'll make your dream, forget what you've ever known
    You're gonna be a star, a big star

    Now you're set, so follow the rules
    Don't need a house unless it comes with the pool
    Buy some new clothes and then you've got to be cool
    You're gonna be a star, a big star

    Find a beach if you need a tan
    You got to act as though you're in great demand
    Be first class, don't ever think second-hand
    You're gonna be a star, a big star

    In style, L.A. Style
    (Get in style)
    Say hi as you cruise by
    (Saying hi)

    (Listen here)
    'Cause everybody is a star in Hollywood
    (Well)
    Everybody is a star in Hollywood
    (Alright)

    Let's go to Hollywood so good
    (Holly, Hollywood, Holly, Hollywood)
    (Holly, Hollywood, Holly, Hollywood)
    Come on

    Now it's time to get a new car
    You know the kind that has a phone and a bar
    You'll soon forget the person you really are
    You're gonna be a star, a big star

    Party where the stars have their fun
    The Candy Store or Pips or Studio One
    Act like a king and soon New-Yorkers look up
    You're gonna be a star, a big star

    Never run to answer the phone,
    Just let it ring, pretend you're just getting home,
    Play a good game, you see you'll never go wrong
    You're gonna be a star, a big star

    Tell your friends you walked off the stage
    Then slip outside and call and have yourself paged
    Get on the phone and scream as though in a rage
    You're gonna be a star, a big star

    (In sty-y-y-yle) be in style (L.A. Sty-y-y-yle) L.A. Sty-y-y-yle
    (Say hi-i-i-i) say hi (as you cruise by-y-y-y) as you cruise by
    Listen here ('cause everybody is a star in Hollywood) well
    (Everybody is a star in Hollywood) alright

    Let's go to (Holly-Hollywood) Hollywood (Holly-Hollywood) so good
    (Holly-hollywood) well (Holly-Hollywood) alright

    (Everybody is a star in Hollywood), Hollywood
    (Everybody is a star in Hollywood), so good

    Studio! (what?), lights (lights), music (music), action (action)
    Dance (dance), dance (dance), dance (dance), dance (dance) Writer/s: HENRI BELOLO, JACQUES MORALI, PHILLIP L HURTT
