lyrics

Folks are spreading like disease,
Some have furs and some have fleas.
Many live life on their knees in
Tinseltown.
Few say thank you, fewer please and they're
Busy trading trash for trees.
Babies born in SUVs in
Tinsetown.

Tinseltown, don't let me down.
Tinseltown, don't let me down.

Melting pot of foreign cars,
Private beaches and movie stars.
Velvet ropes protect the bars in
Tinseltown.
One night out is two weeks' pay but
No one eats food anyway.
The paparazzi's here to stay in
Tinseltown.

Tinseltown, don't let me down.
Tinseltown, don't let me down.

Sleeping under star-less skies
Except for movie girls and TV guys.
You stoop so low to get so high
And most just getting by
And they train on cue to cry
And no one's asking why.

Realtors will sell the sea
And hope is a commodity
They step on you to get to me in
Tinseltown.

They hose down sidewalks in a drought
And they heat the air when it's chilly out.
Don't it make you want to shout this
Tinseltown.

Tinseltown, don't let me down.
Tinseltown, don't let me down.
