Lyrics
Well, I'm gonna ride a sabertooth horse through the Hollywood Hills
The farther west, the farther out, yeah, that's the way I feel
Well, I dig the dirt and I dig the dust, I barbecue my meals
Riding wild on a paisley dragon through the Hollywood Hills, yeah, Hollywood Hills

Well, I'm gonna ride a sabertooth horse through the Hollywood Hills
Just don't show me anything 'cause that's the way I feel
Well, I dig the dirt and I dig the dust, I barbecue my meals
Riding wild on a paisley dragon through the Hollywood Hills, yeah, Hollywood Hills

Passion dripping from the coyote's eyes
He can taste his blood and blood never lies, pale face die

True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't kill coyotes

Well, I'm gonna ride a sabertooth horse through the Hollywood Hills
The farther west, the farther out, yeah, that's the way I feel
Well, I dig the dirt and I dig the dust, I barbecue my meals
Riding wild on a paisley dragon through the Hollywood Hills, yeah, Hollywood Hills

Passion dripping from the coyote's eyes
He can taste his blood and blood never lies, pale face die

True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't

Well, I'm gonna ride a sabertooth horse through the Hollywood Hills
Just don't tell me anything 'cause that's the way I feel
Well, I dig the dirt and I dig the dust, I barbecue my meals
Riding wild on a paisley dragon through the Hollywood Hills, yeah, Hollywood Hills

Passion dripping from the coyote's eyes
He can taste his blood and blood never lies, pale face die

True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't

True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't

True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't
