Alides Hidding - Hollywood seven
Tekst en muziek: Gloria Sklerov en Harry Lloyd
(1980)






She came in one night from Omaha
Worn out, ’cause she never could sleep on train
Took a bus to Hollywood
Lookin’ for a room in the pourin’ rain



Hair so blond, her eyes so brown
She thought she’d take this town
And turn it upside down



I was livin’ in a hotel
Just at sunset she moved in across the hall
She said, she’d be a moviestar
And waited every morning for the call



I asked her in for a drink
But she hardly had the time
Her call might come tomorrow
She had to know her lines



Hollywood seven, rooms to rent
Till your name goes up in lights
Hollywood seven, you can dream your dreams
For seven bucks a night



Hollywood seven, rooms to rent
Till your name goes up in lights
Hollywood seven, you can dream your dreams
For seven bucks a night



Now the months went by without a job
The money that she saved was nearly spent
But she started bringing strangers home
Had to find a way to pay the rent



She’d sit and drink black coffee
With nothing much to say
Just busy rehearsing in her mind
The scene she’d never play



Hollywood seven, rooms to rent
Till your name goes up in lights
Hollywood seven, you can dream your dreams
For seven bucks a night



Hollywood seven, rooms to rent
Till your name goes up in lights
Hollywood seven, you can dream your dreams
For seven bucks a night



I found her there one morning
When she didn’t come for coffee when I called
She brought the wrong one home this time
There were crazy lipstick squals across the wall



Now she’s going back to Omaha
But not the way she planned
There’ll be no crowd to cheer her up
No ‘Welcome home’, no band



Hollywood seven, rooms to rent
Till your name goes up in lights
Hollywood seven, you can dream your dreams
For seven bucks a night



Hollywood seven, rooms to rent
Till your name goes up in lights
Hollywood seven, you can dream your dreams
For seven bucks a night



Hollywood seven, rooms to rent
Till your name goes up in lights
Hollywood seven, you can dream your dreams
For seven bucks a night
