Bobby's driving through the city tonight
Through the lights
In a hot new rent-a-car.
He joins the lover in his heavy machine
It's a scene down on Sunset Boulevard.

[Chorus]
Say goodbye to Hollywood
Say goodbye my baby.
Say goodbye to Hollywood,
Say goodbye my baby.

Johnny's taking care of things for awhile
And his style is so right for troubadours.
They got him sitting with his back to the door
Now he won't be my fast gun anymore.

[Chorus]

Moving on is a chance that you take every time you try to stay together.
Say a word out of line and you find that the friends you had are gone
Forever, forever.
So many faces in and out of my life,
Some will last, some will just be now and then.
Life is a series of hellos and goodbyes
I'm afraid it's time for goodbye again.

[Chorus]

Moving on is a chance that you take every time you try to stay together.
Say a word out of line and you find that the friends you had are gone
Forever, forever.
So many faces in and out of my life,
Some will last, some will just be now and then.
Life is a series of hellos and goodbyes
I'm afraid it's time for goodbye again.
