Release The Stars Submit Correct Lyrics

Why do you keep all your stars in
From your studio on Melrose Avenue?
You have lost all your assets
Oh, 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 the public that has seen no [Incomprehensible]
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?
