The Hollywood Squares – Hollywood Square lyrics

Try to be hip, I try to be with it
I’m a hometown kid with nothin’ to do
I go to the Whisky, I go to the Starwood
Try to hold my own in the Hollywood zoo.

But every day there’s something new
I can’t keep up with all the trends and fashions
Why should I care?
I’m just a Square.

Punks and hippies, all the latest fads
I watch ‘em invade the Sunset Strip
Well I was here first and I’ll leave here the last
So you’d better think twice before you call me a drip.

‘Cause things are changin’ awful fast
What’s out today is in tomorrow
Pardon me while I stand and stare
I’m a Hollywood Square.

Norah Jones – Don’t Be Denied lyrics

[Verse 1]
When I was a young girl
My mama said to me
Your daddy’s leaving home today
I think he’s gone to stay
We packed up all our bags
And drove out to Winnipeg
When we got to Winnipeg
I checked in to school
I wore white bucks on my feet
When I learned the golden rule
The punches came fast and hard
Lying on my back in the school yard

[Chorus]
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied
[Verse 2]
Well pretty soon I met a friend
He played guitar
We used to sit on the steps at school
And dream of being stars
We started a band
We played all night

[Chorus]
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied

[Verse 3]
Oh Canada
We played all night
I really hate to leave you now
But to stay just wouldn’t be right
Down in Hollywood
We played so good
The businessmen crowded around
They came to hear the golden sound
There we were on the Sunset Strip
Playing our songs for the highest bid
We played all night
The price was right

[Chorus]
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied
Don’t be denied, don’t be denied

[Verse 4]
Well, all that glitters isn’t gold
I know you’ve heard that story told
And I’m a pauper in a naked disguise
A millionaire through a business man’s eyes
Oh friend of mine
Don’t be denied
