​Hollywood (Down on Your Luck)

This song is by Sound Barrier and appears on the album Speed of Light (1986).

They saw people out in Hollywood
Live their lives out in black and white
Living out a technicolor dream
Next day a star overnight

Not like in New York
Man it's tougher
Not like in London town
Boy you suffer

Nobody get's a break
When you're down on your luck
Everybody on the take
When you're down on your luck
You can't make a mistake
When you're down on your luck

People out in Hollywood
Got a 'lotta class
See the boys on the boulevard
Kickin' ass!

Not like in New York
It's highrise. concrete. complex -
Not like in old London town
Where it reins down
On it's subjects -

Nobody gives a damn
When you're down on your luck
Nobody really understands
When you're down on your luck
Lady chance won't dance
When you're down on your luck

People out in Hollywood
They make it to the stars
Reach the big screen
Drive around in big expensive -
Convertible cars -

Not like in New York
All you got is the Broadway
Not like in the east end of london
You can't make it no way

Nobody gives a damn
When you're down on your luck
Nobody understands
When you're down on your luck
Lady chance won't dance!
When you're down on your luck

You gotta strut your stuff
When you're down on your luck
You can't take it easy
That ain't good enough!
When you're down on your luck
Everybody's on the make
When you're down on your luck

Strut! Strut!
Come on Phil!
