(G. Heideman)

Today I went out on a movie call
I saw a million nervous faces
I knew them all
Hollywood movie girls

We're all wearing our one good interview dress
The one showin' our legs
Aah, we're lookin' our best
Now, who will be chosen for the screen test?
It's your guess
Hollywood movie girls

And each and every potential star
Drives home in the night in her economy car
Whoever thought home would be a one-room flat?
Well, as simple as that
Hollywood movie girls

Each morning up early to call on the 'phone
Agents, producers, oh, they're never at home
Like door-to-door salesmen, we are selling ourselves
Ooh, nothing else
Hollywood movie girls

And each and every potential star
Drives home in the night in her economy car
Whoever thought home would be a one-room flat?
Well, as simple as that
Hollywood movie girls

And just about bedtime each one of us asks
Tell me, when will I make it to the big-time at last?
Oh, small parts you're offered
Aah, but those too shall pass
Nothing lasts
Hollywood movie girls

Yeah, and each and every potential star
Drives home in the night in her economy car
Whoever thought home would be a one-room flat?
Well, as simple as that
Hollywood movie girls

Oh, star light, star bright, won't you wish on me tonight?
Wish I may, wish I might
Shine your light for me
