Overnight Sensation Lyrics by David Gates 



Overnight Sensation by David Gates


Hollywood, sure looked good to me when
I first come
Made my vow, somehow everyone would
Know my name
Patiently, kept on waiting for my chance
To come
Prideful me, there's no returning to where
I came from
But she went back, the lovely lady who
Come west with me
She could not wait, now she's married
Living happily
But I still say a superstar is just a break
Away
And I must try, it's do or die until I hear
The people say...

You made it, you made it
Our local boy has made it good
You made it, you made it
Overnight Sensation in Hollywood
Back again, make the rounds and go from
Door to door
Sorry friend, you're just not quite what we
Were looking for
A letter comes, she still writes to you from
Time to time
You'd like to call, but she's too happy and
Besides you need the dime

Then at lost, someone's calling with a role
To play
It concerns a man who's lost his lover when
She went away
A star is born, no one's ever seen it played
So well
It almost seems the tears are real but it's
Just too hard to tell...

You made it, you made it
Found the price and paid it, I knew
You would
You made it, you made it
Overnight Sensation in Hollywood
