(Hollywood-sounding guy talking)
Hi man, do you like it here man?
It's really too much
Hey I know this great Mexican restaurant called Los Tacos
Can you say taco?
Sure I thought you could
Hey I know this great beach down in Santa Monica Boulevard
Do you like the sun?
It makes me feel real tingly all over
Hey, have you checked out Palm Springs?
What a place, Palm Springs
You'll love it, you'll absolutely love it!
Can you say love?
Sure, I know you're into it.

In El Padrino's at the happy hour
They've got a drink they say is made from passionflowers
So neat, so sweet.

They bring it all the way from Mexico
It's guaranteed to take you where you want to go
Oh boy, enjoy.

And you leave to see how the city feels
In the moonlight everything's so unreal
But when the sun shines everything tastes so good
And the sign says "Welcome to Hollywood".

They got a big house and a swimming pool
They sit around and everybody looks so cool
So bad, so sad.

Stuck in the middle with the blues again
You should know better, when you ever gonna learn
So long, so long.

And you leave to see how the city feels
In the moonlight everything's so unreal
But when the sun shines everything tastes so good
And the sign says "Welcome to Hollywood".

In El Padrino's at the happy hour
They've got a drink they say is made from passionflowers
So neat, so sweet.

They bring it all the way from Mexico
It's guaranteed to take you where you want to go
Oh boy, enjoy.

And you leave to see how the city feels
In the moonlight everything's so unreal
But when the sun shines everything tastes so good
And the sign says "Welcome to Hollywood".

(fade til end)
In Hollywood, in Hollywood
In Hollywood, in Hollywood

(a different Hollywood-sounding guy talking)
Yeah in Hollywood, hey in Hollywood baby
Gerry, love it! Love it!
Get down Gerry, get down in Hollywood
Hey it's 80 degrees in Burbank,
85 Inglewood, 90 in the Valley
And 110 in my heart for Gerry Rafferty
Gerry get down baby
Heavy sounds, radio krap
You're gonna love it
I said in Hollywood
Gerry we're gonna hit the mountains
We're gonna hit the beaches
And hit you with this
Gerry baby you fry my brain and drive me insane!
Get down in Hollywood Gerry
Woooh! What'd I say baby!
