Hollywood Sign

*I’ve been performing this piece as spoken word set to music with my guitarist Dave Gaulkin around L.A. lately. It is too much fun. We bring the dramatics to this one!  (Photo Credit: Ryan Selewicz)

Hollywood Sign

Is anyone else staring at the Hollywood Sign right now?

With a glare in my eye

The sun sets in the sky

I, can’t drive an inch

I, don’t even flinch

As the guy behind me … lays on his horn

My tires are bald and my brakes are worn

I just got stabbed in the back … back

Running with the bulls

A ship full of fools

A shed of dull tools

A Hollywood movie star is making the rules

And everyone smiles in the pictures

Everyone smiles in pictures

Is anyone else staring at the Hollywood Sign right now?

With a glimmer in my eye

And a crumpled headshot on my back seat … seat

Wilted from the heat … heat

I’m smiling, yeah, I’m smiling real wide

‘Cause everyone smiles in pictures

Yeah, everyone smiles in these damn pictures

And, I thought these photos were supposed to make me a star

Oh, Hollywood Sign

In this City of Angels you better come as you are

If you make change to keep up with the Joneses

You’ll find the devils lining up in your backyard

And everything looks so perfect from afar

‘Cause everyone smiles in pictures

Everyone smiles in pictures

Hollywood Sign

Oh, Hollywood Sign

Behind the smog of the city

Yeah, you’re so pretty

But you make me feel so ugly sometimes

Hollywood Sign

Oh, Hollywood Sign

You know, Holly could shine

If Holly could just sign

And, Holly would sign

Oh, Hollywood Sign
