Love this town

Come to the city, to make my name
Right to the big time, walk of fame
Straight into casting, Sunset and Vine
I take my screen test, I'm looking fine

They say "You've got the part. Come back in fifteen days."
I returned to find they had all moved away

When you call they're not around
You've got to love this town
Castles fall without a sound
You've got to love this town

Go and check the trades, World Book and news
Find a magazine, to cure my blues
Start a rocking band, make the scene
We'll climb right up the charts, cash in on a dream

Rehearse for sixteen weeks, the night before the show
They took our van away with everything we owned

When fortune smiles, the walls come down
You've got to love this town
The latest king is tomorrow's clown
You've got to love this town

Walking the boulevard, knocking on doors
From the basement to the Fourth floor
I get connected, I make the grade
I watch the power brokers dance on Chaplin's grave

The sign upon the hill can turn your dreams to gold
One little detail, you have to sell your soul

When you call, they're not around,
You've got to love this town
Something's lost, and something's found
You've got to love this town

When fortune smiles, the walls come down
You've got to love this town
The latest king is tomorrow's clown
You've got to love this town
