Hollywood

Original and similar lyrics
You talk so loud, you talk so much and you talk so funny, But honey, what are you talkin' about Something 'bout being, being reimbursed For every unregistered virus. Drainpipes are filled up with dirty rain, And the leisure train is speeding in the diamond lane. With electricity shut off again Leaving the night-life only for the madmen. Oh my God They've sold Hollywood, Burned down my neighborhood, Even shot Robin Hood. An' oh my God, I guess it was never understood, To understand brotherhood Right from wrong And the bad from the good. Well, everybody's got their own smoke-screens With personal armies for everyone in between. With plastic rifles given to every team What a beautiful dream, even bullets have guarantees. An' oh my God They've sold Hollywood, Burned down my neighborhood, Even shot Robin Hood. An' oh my God, I guess it was never understood, To understand brotherhood Right from wrong And the bad from the good. There's the sweetest evil image detector As sweet as nectar, an overrated candy dispenser. She don't give food to eat or anybody, anyplace to sleep, But she can tell you, what you can and what you can't create. An' oh my God They've sold Hollywood, Burned down my neighborhood, Even shot Robin Hood. Oh my God, I guess it was never understood, To understand brotherhood Right from wrong And the bad from the good. An' oh my God They've sold Hollywood, Burned down my neighborhood, Even shot Robin Hood. An' oh my God, Guess it was never understood To understand brotherhood Right from wrong And the bad from the good.

It's All Understood

JACK JOHNSON "Brushfire Fairytales"
Everyone laughed at her joke As if they'd never even heard it before And maybe they were truly amused But every word that she spoke was a bore And maybe it's because they had seen The previews on the TV screen Well this part is good and that's well understood So you should laugh if you know what I mean But it's all relative Even if you don't understand Well it's all understood Especially when you don't understand Then it's all just because Even if we don't understand Then lets all just believe Everyone knows what went down Because the news was spread all over town And fact is only what you believe And fact and fiction work as a team It's almost always fiction in the end That content begins to bend When context is never the same And it's all relative Even if we don't understand And it's all understood Especially when we don't understand Then it's all just because Even if we don't understand Then lets all just believe I was reading a book Or maybe it was a magazine Suggestions on where to place faith Suggestions on what to believe But I read somewhere That you've got to beware You can't believe anything you read But the good Book is good And it's all understood So don't even question If you know what I mean But it's all relative Even if you don't understand Well it's all understood Especially when you don't understand And it's all just because Even if we don't understand Then lets all just believe But there you go once again You missed the point and then you point Your fingers at me And say that I said not to believe I believe I guess I guess it's all relative ¡¡

Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

GENE PITNEY
When Liberty Valance rode to town The womenfolk would hide, they'd hide When Liberty Valance walked around The men would step aside Cause the point of a gun was the only law That Liberty understood When it came to shooting straight and fast He was mighty good From out of the East a stranger came A law book in his hand, a man The kind of a man the West would need To tame a troubled land Cause the point of a gun was the only law That Liberty understood When it came to shooting straight and fast He was mighty good Many a man would face his gun And many a man would fall The man who shot Liberty Valance He shot Liberty Valance He was the bravest of them all The love of a girl can make a man stay on When he should go, stay on Just trying to build a peaceful life Where love is free to grow But the point of a gun was the only law That Liberty understood When the final showdown came at last A law book was no good Alone and afraid, she prayed that he'd Return that fateful night, oh that night When nothing she said could keep her man From going out to fight From the moment a girl gets to be full grown The very first thing she learns When two men go out to face each other Only one returns Everyone heard two shots ring out The shot made Liberty fall The man who shot Liberty Valence He shot Liberty Valance He was the bravest of them all The man who shot Liberty Valance He shot Liberty Valance He was the bravest of them all

Songs The Minstrel Sang

GORDON LIGHTFOOT "Endless Wire"
It's almost over it's almost done And you can't put the blame on anyone It's almost easy and it's almost fun Did you get caught with your britches on Hi derry day in the month of May Was the song the minstrel sang To the good of Robin Hood Maid Marion and all the gang His aim was mean and his shot was clean And his suit was the shade of evergreen The folks he knew hadn't naught to fear When the sheriff was there they were over here Hi derry doon in the month of June Was the song the minstrel sung To the good of Robin Hood's Good name and a place to run He loved strong ale and a run down jail Was the kind of a scene where he never failed There was no man on the sea or land Who could get Maid Marion on the trail Hi derry day in the month of May Was the song the minstrel sang To the good of Robin Hood Maid Marion and all the gang It's almost over it's almost done And you can't put the blame on Marion She almost made it to the friar's gate But the old wooden bridge wouldn't elevate Hi derry doon in the month of June Was the song the minstrel sung To the good of Robin Hood's Good name and a place to run

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

Johnny Horton
When Liberty Valance rode to town the womenfolk would hide. They'd hide. When Liberty Valance walked around, the men would step aside. For the point of a gun was the only law that Liberty understood. When it came to shootin' straight and fast, he was mighty good. From out of the east, a stranger came, a law book in his hand. A man. The kind of a man the West would need to tame a troubled land. But the point of a gun was the only law that Liberty understood. When it came to shootin' straight and fast, he was mighty good. Many a man would face his gun, and many a man would fall. The man who shot Liberty Valance, he shot Liberty Valance, he was the bravest of them all. The love of a girl can make a man stay on when he should go. Stay on. Just trying to build a peaceful life where love is free to grow. But the point of a gun was the only law that Liberty understood. When the final showdown came at last, a law book was no good. Alone and afraid, she prayed that he'd return that fateful night. Ah, that night, when nothing she said could keep her man from going out to fight. From the moment a girl gets to be full-grown, the very first thing she learns, when two men go out to face each other, only one returns. Everyone heard two shots ring out. A shot made Liberty fall! The man who shot Liberty Valance, he shot Liberty Valance, he was the bravest of them all. The man who shot Liberty Valance, he shot Liberty Valance, he was the bravest of them all...
