(Can I Speak Before You Go To) Hollywoood

This song is by Labelle and appears on the album Pressure Cookin' (1973).

Have you got a minute, my friend?
Though I'd drop in
Say a word or two to you

It won't take long
Soon you'll be gone
And on your way
Yes, I know you're gonna do
What you want to anyway

And I don't know
If I should
But if I could
Can I speak to you?
Oh, before you go
To Hollywood?

Don't be offended
My friend
I didn't intend
To bring you down
From the world
You're living in

I could be wrong
Soon you'll be gone
And on your way
And tomorrow it could be
You instead of me
Who has to say

And I don't know
If I should
But if I could
Can I speak to you, yeah
Oh, before you go
To Hollywood?

I only want to say
Learn the rules
If you're gonna play
'Cause the game of life
Has a new winner everyday

Yeah and I don't if I should
But if I could
Can I speak to you, yeah
Oh, before you go
To Hollywood?

Because I, I believe in you
Hope you do all the things
You set out to do

Oh, I, I believe that you
Hope all your dreams come true

Have you got a minute, my friend?
To consider the end
Of the fruitless seeds
You sow with no regrets

It won't take long
Soon you'll be gone
And on your way

Just open up your eyes
And see life
For what it is

Just see yourself as you should
Said, if you understood
Can I speak to you
Before you go to Hollywood?

Because I, I believe in you
Hope you do all the things
You set out to do

I, I believe in you
Hope all your dreams come true

I, I believe in you
Hope all your dreams come true

Oh, I believe in you
Oh, I, I believe in you
And you and you and you
