Boz Scaggs – Hollywood lyrics

The way you read the crowd
The way you make them play
You stepped in and did the scene
A whole new way

No one would resist you now
And even if they could
Hollywood just never had it
Quite this good

I see your name in lights
I see them standing in line
They send the cards and the wine
Broadway, here she comes

You should be a natural

(Camera, action, do it again)
Ooh, any way I gotta do it
(Camera, action, do it again)
Gonna make you a star
(Camera, action, do it again)
Ooh, any way I gotta do it
(Camera, action, do it again)
Gonna get you this part

No one had to tell you
What your smile was for
Sure there's not an uncle
Name of Barrymoore

Now she did this
And she did that
You're all the latest talk
Now they're lining up for you
Around the block

Throwing roses, holy Moses
Even the Times says
Stars fell from the sky
And that gets you immortalized

[Repeat chorus]

They gave you five stars
They're sending big cars
And Sunset Boulevard
Will never be the same
You'll give it a brand new name

[Repeat chorus]

(Camera, action, do it again)
(Camera, action, do it again)...
