"Hollywood Tonight"

Lipstick in hand
Tahitian tanned
In her painted on jeans

She dreams of fame
She changed her name
To one that fits the movie screen
She's headed for the big time, that means

She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
It's true, that you, may never ever have that chance again

West bound Greyhound
To tinsel town
Just to pursue her movie star dreams
She's giving hot tricks to men
Just to get in
When she was taught that that's not clean
She's headed for the big time, that means

She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
It's true, that you, may never ever have that chance again (that chance again)

[Spoken words:]
She gave up her life, to follow her dreams
Left behind everything, for the movie scene
Nothing more she could want, she was determined to follow her plan
She wanted Hollywood, she wanted it bad
Now that she got her dream, she became a star
It all looked so good, but only good from afar
Imprisoned in every paparazzi's camera, every guy wished they could
Now it's back to reality, for Ms. Hollywood

Lipstick in hand
Tahitian tanned
In her painted on jeans

She dreams of fame
She changed her name
To one that fits the movie screen
She's headed for the big time, that means

She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
She's going Hollywood
She's going Hollywood tonight
It's true, that you, may never ever have that chance again (that chance again)

    The same old thing.
    I agree with this statement and my definition for hollywood tonight is thst a woman made it to hollywood and she really wanted this dream really bad, so she left her family and other improtant things back at home. She was determined and ready for hollywood. She finally made it.

    A girl finally made it to hollywood and this is a one in a life time thing and she might never have this chance again so michael wrote this for people who make it to hollywood.

    In the beginning he describes a girl with her lipstick in her hand and her tahitian tan and her painted on jeans... And her dream is to become a star and that she changed her name to fit hollywood so that she might be accepted. Also, she going throgh alot of places to get to hollywood and her audition. She may not ever have this chance again at all. She gave up her old life to go hollywood and she left behind her family and her important things in life. She was determined that she would make it, and she really wanted this bad ... Rip to michael jackson i love you!
