"Hollywood" as written by and Henry Nicola Mancini....
[Chorus]
Shine your light now
This time it's gotta be good
You get it right now (yeah)
Cause you're in Hollywood

There's something in the air in Hollywood
The sun is shining like you knew it would
You're ridin' in your car in Hollywood
You got the top down and it feels so good

I lost my memory in Hollywood
I've had a million visions, bad and good
There's something in the air in Hollywood
I tried to leave it but I never could

[Chorus]

There's something in the air in Hollywood
I've lost my reputation, bad and good
You're ridin' in your car in Hollywood
You got the top down and it feels so good

Music stations always play the same songs
I'm bored with the concept of right and wrong

Everybody comes to Hollywood
They want to make it in the neighborhood
They like the smell of it in Hollywood
How could it hurt you when it looks so good

[Chorus]

Cause you're in Hollywood
Cause you're in Hollywood
In Hollywood [Repeat x3]

Check it out, this bird has flown

[Chorus]

Cause you're in Hollywood
Cause you're in Hollywood
In Hollywood [Repeat x3]

[Repeat x2]
Push the button
Don't push the button
Trip the station
Change the channel

    General CommentI think the lyrics have a subtlety to them that most people miss. I don't know if maybe people are just transcribing them incorrectly or if this when written out the lyrics are supposed to say this, but the line "do you like your Hollywood?" is a grammatically ambivalent when spoken. He could be asking her if she likes her Hollywood, which does not make too much sense to me, or he could be saying "do you like you're Hollywood." Considering the song is concerned with sex the use of the contraction "you're" makes much more sense. He is saying that they could pretend to be stars and he will have sex with her (do her) like she is a Hollywood star.

    General CommentI've always heard the lyric in the chorus as:

    Move across the dance floor
    Let me buy you a drink or two
    And you can be my star for weekends
    I'd do you like you're Hollywood.

    From my point of view, it sounds as if he's singing to someone in a bar and telling her about how he'll treat her. The song has a slight predatory tone to it, however, as if he's going to have sex with her to teach her a lesson.
