The Lyrics

Everybody was right, I should've changed the lyrics to an earlier parody I wrote. Here's my sincere apology to George Benson, his fans, and all the parody writers on this site.
Yeah, this one goes out to George Benson, and that song I stole from him a while back...Yeah, goes like this

I'm sorry, George Benson (Ooh!), I am for real
Never meant to plagiarize your song, I apologize a zillion times
I'm sorry, George Benson (Ooh!), I am for real
Never meant to plagiarize your song, I apologize a zillion times

Remember that song, On Broadway, the song that I stole and called my own?
I called it In Hollywood
I wish I never did it, never ever did it, but I did it anyway
I mean no disrespect to New York and L.A.
And I'd never treat your song the dumb way I did
Much love to Broadway and to Hollywood
And I love your music, George, hey it wasn't my idea to start with
As a matter of fact, I heard a friend of mine sing it
But because of that, I'm up to my ears in hot water
I'll get a chance to make fun of other songs later
Though I know now that won't make the same mistake twice
And I still think that your music is quite nice, yeah

I'm sorry, George Benson (Ooh!), I am for real
Never meant to plagiarize your song, I apologize a zillion times
I'm sorry, George Benson (Ooh!), I am for real
Never meant to plagiarize your song, I apologize a zillion times

You're right, the neon lights are always bright
And they will always stay lit up bright all night
And I can also feel this old magic in the air
But now the glitter's rubbed off and I ain't nowhere, man
Ninety times out of a hundred, if you're mad, fine
But if you wish to take me to court, I'll decline
So I'm singing this song to show you how I feel
And my feelings right now could never be more real
On the radio, I'm feeling dazed forever
Forever, forever, ever, forever, ever?
Forever never seems that long til you're old
And notice that I'm feeling down and out in the cold
George Benson, my intentions were good, I wish I could
Pick up my guitar to sing the same way that you sing
From New York, to L.A., and all around the globe
I want to ring it out very strong and clear
Oh, I can feel the sting of a lawsuit near
So, before you sue me, just hear me out
I just wanted to find something cool about
Hollywood, but instead, I ended up a fool, and that's why...

I'm sorry, George Benson (Ooh!), I am for real
Never meant to plagiarize your song, I apologize a zillion times
I'm sorry, George Benson (Ooh!), I am for real
Never meant to plagiarize your song, I apologize a zillion times

Uh-huh, yeah
"Look what he did to my song," man, look what I should've done to that song
I should've mentioned the actors and the Hollywood lots
And those fancy, glamourous Hollywood shops
But now I'm nothing but a square, cause I was wrong
And I ain't talking bout the ones with Tom Bergeron
So there you go, that's my heartfelt apology
I hope you can accept it, please forgive me, George Benson!

I'm sorry, George Benson (Ooh!), I am for real
Never meant to plagiarize your song, I apologize a zillion times
I'm sorry, George Benson (Ooh!), I am for real
Never meant to plagiarize your song, I apologize a zillion times
I'm sorry, George Benson (Ooh!), I am for real
Never meant to plagiarize your song, I apologize a zillion times
I'm sorry, George Benson (Ooh!), I am for real
Never meant to plagiarize your song, I apologize a zillion times
