Hollywood 7- Jon English

Normally I wouldn’t link this because I can’t find a decent copy of the song that will embed, this copy the music is synched and it’s good.

 

This copy the music is horribly out of synch.

 

I love this song so much, Jon English was born in London and emigrated to Australia at a relatively young age, he rose to fame playing Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar and went on to have a massive series of Number one songs in Australia and in Europe, he is an accomplished actor as well as a singer and starred as a washed up rock star in the hit comedy All Together Now. One of his best roles on stage has been that of The Pirate King in The Pirates Of Penzance, he was brilliant in this and his crotch was something to behold !

 

Hollywood 7

She came in one night from Omaha, worn out
‘Cause she never could sleep on trains
She took the bus to Hollywood
Lookin’ for a room in the pourin’ rain
With her hair so blonde and her eyes so brown
She thought she’d take this town and turn it upside down

Well I was livin’ in a hotel just off Sunset
She moved in across the hall
And she said she’d be a movie star
And waited every mornin’ for the ca-all
So I asked her in to share a drink
But she hardly had the ti-ime
A call might come tomorrow
She had to learn her li-ines

On Hollywood Seven
Rooms to rent till your name goes up in lights
Oh-oh Hollywood Seven
You can dream your dreams for seven bucks a night

Well, the months went by without a job
The money that she saved was nearly spent
So she started bringin’ strangers home
Tryin’ to find a way to pay the rent
Well she’d sit down and drink my coffee
With nothin’ much to say-ay
Just busy rehearsin’ in her mind
The scenes she’d never play-ay

On Hollywood Seven, rooms to rent
Till your name goes up in lights
Oh-oh, Hollywood Seven
You can dream your dreams for seven bucks a night

Well I found her there one mornin’
When she didn’t come for coffee when I ca-alled
She’d gone and brought the wrong one home this time
There were crazy lipstick marks up on the wa-all
Now she’s goin’ back to Omaha but not the way she’d pla-anned
There’ll be no crowd to cheer her on, no welcome home, no ba-and

On Hollywood Seven, rooms to rent, till your name goes up in lights
Oh Hollywood Seven, you can dream your dreams for seven bucks a night
On Hollywood Seven, dreams to rent, till your name goes up in lights
Oh-oh Hollywood Seven, you can pay your dues for seven bucks a night
