Poison – Wishful Thinkin' lyrics

Came to Hollywood
Gonna be a movie star
She got off the bus
She didn't get far
Now she can act as good as Meryl Streep
Dreams of stardom when she sleeps
The casting couch makes her scream
Wasn't like this in her dreams

Wishful thinking
Give it to me, give it to me, give it to me, give it to me good
Wishful thinking
Let's go

Came to hollywood
Gonna be a big rock star
He can play a million riffs on this here guitar
Now he works two jobs can't get a break
Takes little white pills to stay awake
No record deals just make him scream
It wasn't like this in his dream

(come on Bobby)
(Yeah I like that)

Rock n' roll Denny's
Topless bars
Do a porno movie make some extra cash
But you spend it all to fast
Hollywood just makes you scream
It wasn't like this in your dreams


Dream. Wishful thinking
Give it to me, give it to me, give it to me, give it to me good
Wishful thinking yeah yeah
Let's go
