Official Lyrics

Deuce: Hollywood, we never going down
Hollywood, we never going down
Hollywood, we never going down

And all the kids in the hood, come on, wave and shake your hands
Hollywood, we never going down
And when you're drunk, shake that ass like you know how to dance
Hollywood, we never going down

Charlie Scene: Start getting loud, I wanna party now
If you hate on Undead, that's a party foul
I only drink Mickey's, I can't afford the cans
I drink so much, they call me Charlie Forty Hands
If the keg is tapped then you're getting capped
Take your girl to the sack and I'll take a nap
Ladies, drink 'em fast so I can have a blast
You got your beer gogs on and I'm getting ass
Deuce: "Like, oh my God, is that Charlie Scene?"
Charlie Scene: Ladies, show me your treats like it's Halloween
You got a fake ID and you're seventeen
Funny Man: "I'm a complete catastrophe buzzing around you like a bumblebee"
Charlie Scene: So let's take some shots
Do a beer run and flip off a cop
Girls give me props and they're on my jock
Paris Hilton said "that’s hot" when she saw my cock
Deuce: ("That's hot!")

And all the kids in the hood, come on, wave and shake your hands
Hollywood, we never going down
And when you're drunk, shake that ass like you know how to dance
Hollywood, we never going down

Johnny 3 Tears: I'm about to serve it up for all you party-goers
Scene kids, meatheads, alchies, stoners
Dancing around like a bunch of faggots
Funnier than fuck, you can ask Bob Saget
I never claimed that I knew how to dance
But I'll get drunk, get high, pull down my pants
So fuck five bucks, just fill up my cup
Don't kiss me, bitch, you just threw up
Now I'm drunk as fuck, about to pass out
J-Dog: “Destination: your mother's couch"
Deuce: "Dude, is it true that you screwed my mom?"
Johnny 3 Tears: Fuck yeah, bro, that pussy was bomb
So I'm humping, jumping, sipping, and skipping
It's nights like these that we all love living
So take out your hands and throw the HU up
Now wave it around like you don't give a fuck
Charlie Scene: ("Check, please!")

Deuce: And all the kids in the hood, come on, wave and shake your hands
Hollywood, we never going down
And when you're drunk, shake that ass like you know how to dance
Hollywood, we never going down

Funny Man: Can't stop, won't stop; Charlie, make the booty drop
Can't stop, won't stop; Johnny, make the booty drop
Can't stop, won't stop; J, make the booty drop
Can't stop, won't stop; Peters, make the booty drop
Da Kurlzz and Funny Man: Can't stop, won't stop; Kurlzz, make the booty drop
Can't stop, won't stop; Funny, make the booty drop
Can't stop, won't stop; let me see the panties drop
Funny Man: Producer's on the dance floor, let me see your booty pop

Da Kurlzz: Grab your drink, get on the floor
Grab your drink and get on the floor!
Deuce: Let's dance in the hood
Shake that ass, Hollywood

Deuce and Funny Man: And all the kids in the hood, come on, wave and shake your hands
(Ugh, ugh)
Hollywood, we never going down
And when you're drunk, shake that ass like you know how to dance
(Ugh, ugh)
Hollywood, we never going down

Deuce: Let's dance in the hood
Shake that ass, Hollywood
Hollywood, we never going down
Let's dance in the hood
Shake that ass, Hollywood
Hollywood, we never going down

Trivia

  • The song is titled No. 5 because it was originally intended to be the fifth track on their former debut album.
  • There are some differences between the 2005 version and the 2008 version:
    • There is an extended instrumental at the beginning of the 2005 version.
    • On the 2005 version, Da Kurlzz does random background shouts throughout Charlie's verse and Johnny's verse. In the 2008 version, Da Kurlzz's vocals are omitted and are replaced with Charlie and Johnny simply backing themselves up instead.
    • On the 2005 version, when Johnny 3 Tears says "Don't kiss me, bitch, you just threw up," Shady Jeff can be heard making gagging noises in the background. On the 2008 version, these noises are omitted and never replaced.
    • On the 2005 version, Shady Jeff says "Dude, is it true that you screwed my mom?" On the 2008 version, Deuce says this line instead.
    • On the 2005 version, Funny Man says "Can't stop, won't stop; Server, make the booty drop." On the 2008 version, he says "Can't stop, won't stop; Johnny, make the booty drop." This change is because from 2005 to 2008, Tha Server changed his stage-name to Johnny 3 Tears.
    • On the 2005 version, Funny says "Can't stop, won't stop; Shady, make the booty drop." On the 2008 version, he says "Can't stop, won't stop; Peters, make the booty drop." This change is because from 2005 to 2008, Shady Jeff was kicked from the band.
