From Madam Wong's to Starwood

To the Whiskey on the Strip
You can hear the crashing, blasting strum
Of bands that come to be real hip

And get a record contract
From a talent scout some day
They'll sell their $$#, their @@#!s and balls

They'll take the check 'n' walk away
If they're lucky they'll get famous
For a week or two perhaps

They'll buy some ugly clothes to wear
And hope the business don't collapse
Before some stupid magazine

Decides they're really good
They're a Tinsel Town Rebellion Band
From downtown Hollywood

Tinsel Town Rebellion, Tinsel Town Rebellion Band
It's a little bitty Tinsel Town Rebellion

A Tinsel Town Rebellion Band

They used to play all kinds of stuff

And some of it was nice
Some of it was musical
But then they took some guy's advice

To get a record deal, he said,
They would have to be more punk
Forget their chops and play real dumb

Or else they would be sunk
So off they go to S.I.R. to learn some stupid riffs

Oh no! No no no no no no no no! Cause the aces are good

And when they think they've got it

They launch a new career
Who gives a $#&@ if what they play
Is somewhat insincere

Let's dance the blues again
Dance the blues again

Come on and
Dance the blues again
Get down from the...

I write the songs that make the young girls cry!

Did you know that in Tinsel Town the people down there
Think that substance is a bore
And if your New Wave group looks good

They'll hurry on back for more
Of leather groups

I do I!
We'll rock you like a nincompoop!

and plastic groups

Rubber goods!

And groups that look real queer

I'll tumble for ya!
(He'll tumble for ya!)
I'll tumble for ya!

I'll tumble for ya very much!
Moo moo moo moo moo
(Home town sausage tambourine)

Moo moo moo moo moo
Moo moo moo moo moo
Moo moo moo moo-wah!

The Tinsel Town aficionados

Come to see and not to hear
But then again this system works
As perfect as a dream
It works for all of those record company pricks

Let's see that record company prick again

It works for all of those record company pricks

Now do it when it hits the floor

It works for all of those record company pricks
Who come to skim the cream
From the cesspools of excitement
Where Jim Morrison once stood
It's that Tinsel Town Rebellion

From down down down
(down down down)
Town town town
(town town town)
Holly lolly lolly
(holly lolly lolly

(Woody woody Pecker pecker)

Woody Pecker pecker!
Woody woody Pecker pecker!
Hi ho Woody!

Hi ho Pecker!
One-Adam-Twelve, see de pecker!
