    Lyrics »

The girl can't stop

Oh that magical power, directing her dreams
But her only dream was to be up on the screen
Yes and though she had my love, it didnīt seem real
It was the power of a million lovers she need to fool

She got to make it in Hollywood
Makinī it to the top
She knows that it might destroy her, but the girl canīt stop
She got to make it in Hollywood
Makinī it to the top
She knows that I really love her, but the girl canīt stop
She canīt stop

She didnīt need money
I had some of that
But she needed to know it was her those eyes were lookinī at
Now sheīs selling her secrets, and shoppinī her past
She was a beautiful baby
But sheīs gettinī old fast

She got to make it in Hollywood
Yeah, reachinī out for the top
To feel the eyes of a million lovers
The girl canīt stop
She got to make it in Hollywood
Feelinī her way to the top
Well, she knows that I really love her, but the girl canīt stop

CommentsBob Welch: "...is a song that was originally out on my Capitol Records album "Man Overboard" I've done it here exactly as the original. I think the song still holds up. My God, if anything, people are more mesmorized with all things "Hollywood" today than they were in 1980 when this song first came out!!"
