lyrics

The girl from Hollywood
Puts her vintage pants inside a drawer
She hangs her vintage dresses up on wooden hangers
And there are some other girls from Hollywood
Who look like her but she’s by far the loveliest
Of all her doppelgängers

The girl from Hollywood’s
Visage hangs in portrait in my home
Above the fireplace where everyone can see her
And the girl from Hollywood
Plays manic pixie dream girls good and all
The other girls I know in town all try to be her

I know that she doesn’t know me
Or care about me the way I care for her
If I had my way I would leave here today
I’d be having a drink with the girl from Hollywood

The girl from Hollywood
Swings her trademark bangs from side to side
When she walks down the street
She looks even better than on TV
I'm the paparazzi snapping
picture after picture clapping
waving craving calling her name
from the bushes by the step-and-repeat

The girl from Hollywood's
Evil twin does TV too
But her show's crude inelegance
contradicts its syndication
Still I can't wait for the day
I'll at my wedding hear her say,
I won't make bones new brother
I'm just in tears over this occasion

I know that she doesn’t know me
Or care about me the way I care for her
If I had my way I would leave here today
I’d be having a drink with the girl from Hollywood

She has such style she has such grace
And if I could I would replace
Some girls I know with her
And be spending my time with the girl from Hollywood

The girl from Hollywood
I eagerly await the day
she finally accepts that our love runs
deeper than mere obsession
And when I cut all the good
Pictures of her face from every magazine
She's ever been in and and glue them to mine
It's just cute affection

And it's sad, the hinky jealousy
Of all the girls
who think they'll be with me
I keep reminding them
that I'm saving myself for her
And that my fair Zeddy Bear
Will come around real soon
And giggle with me on our honeymoon
At those silly restraining orders

I know that she doesn't know that
She cares about me the way I care for her
But I'll have my way
And on that beautiful day
We will be Mrs. and Mr.
The Girl From Hollywood
