Eagles - King of Hollywood Lyrics

King of Hollywood
written: D. Henley and G. Frey
lead vocal: D. Henley and G. Frey
Live Audio: Long Beach 1980

Well, he sits up there on his leatherette
Looks through pictures of the ones that he hasn't had yet
When he thinks he wants a closer look
he gets out his little black telephone book
He's calling, calling, calling
He's calling, calling, calling
He's calling ,calling, calling
He's calling

"Come sit down here beside me, honey
Let's have a little heart to heart
Now look at me and tell me, darlin'
How badly do you want this part?
Are you willing to sacrifice?
And are you willing to be real nice?
All your talent and my good taste
I'd hate to see it go to waste"

"We gon' get you an apartment, honey
We gon' get you a car
Yeah, we gonna take care of you, darlin'
We gon' make you a movie star
For years I've seen 'em come and go"
He says, "I've had 'em all, you know
I handled everything in my own way
I made 'em what they are today"

After awhile, nothin' was pretty
After awhile, everything got lost
Still, his Jacuzzi runneth over
Still, he just couldn't get off
He's just another power junkie
Just another silk scarf monkey
You'd know it if you saw his stuff
The man just isn't big enough
