Why do you keep all your stars in from your studio on Melrose Avenue?
You have lost all your assets owned in life-long contracts to you
Didn't you know that old Hollywood is over?

Oh, can't you see all the good that celebrity can do for those in the dark?
Yes, of course, I am speaking in metaphors for something more in your heart
Didn't you know that old Hollywood is over?

So why not just release the gates and let them all come out?
Remember that without them there would be no Paramount
No paramount need to hold on to what isn't yours
Release the stars

The more that you fight
Then the more they will scrutinize and realize just your size
And, believe me, you are no match for a public that has seen the whites of your eyes
Didn't you know that old Hollywood is over?

Old Hollywood is over
So why not just release the gates and let them all come out?
Remember that without them there would be no Paramount
No paramount need to hold on to what isn't yours
Release the stars

Release the stars, release your love, release the stars
Release your love 'cause Hollywood is over
Why do you keep all your stars in from your studio on Melrose Avenue?
