 Time: shuffled 4/4
 Key: Ab major
 Capo on 1st fret

Ab major isn't really a suitable key for guitar, but by using a capo on the
1st fret you can play as if the song was in G major, which is absolutely the
most suitable for key for guitar. This tab is actually done in G major then,
but after the lyrics I've added the chords in the actual key, Ab major.

Why do you keep all your stars in from your studio on Melrose Avenue?
You have locked all your assets up in lifelong 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 a public that has seen the whites of your eyes
Didn't you know that old Hollywood is over?
Old Hollywood is over

So why don't you 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 old Hollywood is over
Why do you keep all your stars in from your studio on Melrose Avenue?
