Lyrics

HALLOWEEN IN HOLLYWOOD

[ CHORUS - REPEATS TWICE ]

It's HALLOWEEN IN HOLLYWOOD
Halloween every night
It's HALLOWEEN IN HOLLYWOOD
Halloween every day
[spoken:] (every single day)

[ VERSE 1 ]
There are tricks and treats
Down all these streets
But you can?t quite believe your eyes

You never know
What?s beneath the sheets
They take it off?and therre?s one more disguise

Cause it?s ? boo! --

[CHORUS]

Always HALLOWEEN IN HOLLYWOOD
Halloween everywhere you look
HALLOWEEN IN HOLLYWOOD
They never play it by the book

[ BRIDGE EXTENSION ]

Cause they may say you got it
and you're gonna make it
But they never tell you the bottom line

They might
Change the ending
Leave you waiting and wondering
In the shadows where the spotlights never shine . . . .

[VERSE ]

There?s a wolfman
Knockin? at your door
What?s he doin? in this part of town?

He wants a piece ?
He wants a piece of your . . .
Or he?ll huff and puff and blow your whole world down

[ CHORUS - VARIATION ]

It's HALLOWEEN IN HOLLYWOOD
Halloween every place you go
HALLOWEEN IN HOLLYWOOD
Sometimes it's Halloween ? every face you know

[ BRIDGE ]

There are limousines
Disguised as your childhood dreams. . .
There are unlucky breaks
Disguised as not having what it takes . . .
There is the way the world ends
Disguised as the success of your friends
(Congratulations, congratulations)

[ VERSE repeats ]

There are tricks and treats
Down all these streets
But you can?t quite believe your eyes

You never know
What?s beneath the sheets
They take it off?and therre?s one more disguise

[ CHORUS]

Cause it?s
Always HALLOWEEN IN HOLLYWOOD
Halloween every where you look
HALLOWEEN IN HOLLYWOOD
They never play it by the book
