The sign on the corner reads Hollywood Blvd
To some that might mean glitter but not to me
My friends have all stopped asking
Just where it is I go
And I wonder if they’d understand
Why I don’t want them to know

Holly of Hollywood boulevard
Though you make me feel so good
You know your life’s so hard
And though you’re only acting
You’re performing just for me
And I love ya for the part you play down on Hollywood Blvd

Wish I made enough to see her every night
Though that guy that said you can’t buy love
May well be right
She smiles at me when I tell her she looks like a movie star
And before her smile dies she replies
I love you whoever you are

Holly of Hollywood boulevard
Though you make me feel so good
You know your life’s so hard
And though you’re only acting
You’re performing just for me
And I love ya for the part you play down on Hollywood Blvd

I’m not fool enough to think she’d ever be my wife
‘Cause a part of her will keep her from being
Part of my life
And her big break may be waiting a little farther down the street
But the closest she’ll get to stardom
Are the stars beneath her feet

Holly of Hollywood boulevard
Though you make me feel so good
You know your life’s so hard
And though you’re only acting
You’re performing just for me
And I love ya for the part you play down on Hollywood Blvd
