Cell phones and sunglasses, sports cars that shine
Hot shots with headshots all standin’ in line right
Behind the velvet rope to whatever’s goin’ on
There’s a big man with a list in his hand
That you were never on
See it’s the role that we’re all born to play
It’s the vicious things we’re bound to say
It ain’t right but it’s the only way
It’s the hollywood chain gang

We got Starbucks or Coffee Bean,
Billboards that dare,
Homeless folks laughin’ at their own jokes
And we just stop and stare
As if none of us were crazy, as if all of us were sure
If anyone might notice if you weren’t in the picture
It’s a gathering of loneliness,
A bunch of sinners refusing to confess
It’s home sweet home nonetheless,
It’s the hollywood chain gang

See you’re steppin’ on my heels again
I’m steppin’ on your toes
You’re steppin on my heels again
I’m steppin on your toes
You’re steppin on my heels again
I’m steppin on your toes
You’re steppin on my heels again
I’m steppin on your toes

It’s the way they say “That’s perfect one more time
Now give me more”
It’s the way they laugh about you
As you’re walkin' out the door
It’s feigned appreciation, via blatant disregard
Make sure they catch you trying
Careful you don’t try to hard
It’s the dues we all have to pay
It’s the reason we’re all here to stay
Man, this could be your lucky day,
It’s the hollywood chain gang

See you’re steppin’ on my heels again
I’m steppin’ on your toes
You’re steppin on my heels again
I’m steppin on your toes
You’re steppin on my heels again
I’m steppin on your toes
You’re steppin on my heels again
I’m steppin on your toes

Someone once told me that
Life ain’t but a dream
Seems its me who’s always dreamin’
I guess that’s just what they mean
I keep lookin' for a reason, a reason to stick around
She said there ain’t no rhyme or reason
But don’t let that get you down
It’s the role that we’re all born to play
The vicious things we’re bound to say
It ain’t right but it’s the only way
It’s the dues we all have to pay
It’s the reason we’re all here to stay
Hell, this is gonna be your lucky day
So keep laying down those rails
Sledgehammer poundin’ on the nails
Just sing along if all else fails
It’s the Hollywood Chain Gang

See you’re steppin’ on my heels again
I’m steppin’ on your toes
You’re steppin on my heels again
I’m steppin’ on your toes
You’re steppin on my heels again
I’m steppin’ on your toes
You’re steppin on my heels again
I’m steppin’ on your toes
You’re steppin on my heels again
I’m steppin’ on your toes
