  • Late night flight, L.A.X.,
    Limousine and you're all set
    For sunset, for sunset

    Riot house a penthouse suite
    The street's alive below your feet
    On sunset, on sunset

    Rainbow girl, whiskey man
    Spotting every star they can
    On sunset, on sunset

    Rock an' roll every night
    Underneath them neon signs
    On sunset, on sunset

    Sunset people, doin' it right night after night
    Sunset people, night after night doin' it right
    Sunset people, doin' it right night after night
    Sunset people, doin' it right night after night
    Holdin' on to the last breath of life
    On sunset, on sunset

    Smooth haired guys thumbing rides
    Linin' up from side to side
    On sunset, on sunset

    In between pretty girls
    Still sixteen but know the world
    On sunset, on sunset

    Foreign cars full of stars
    Tinted glass to hide the scars
    From sunset, from sunset

    Billboard signs on the strip
    Glamorize the latest hits
    On sunset, on sunset

    Sunset people, doin' it right night after night
    Sunset people, night after night doin' it right
    Sunset people, doin' it right night after night
    Sunset people, doin' it right night after night
    Holdin' on to the last breath of life
    On sunset, on sunset

    Friday night the weekend crowd
    Moves on in to get on down
    On sunset, on sunset

    Life is hot life is fast
    People try to make it last
    On sunset, on sunset

    Sunset people, doin' it right night after night
    Sunset people, night after night doin' it right
    Sunset people, doin' it right night after night
    Sunset people, night after night doin' it right
    Sunset people, doin' it right night after night
    Sunset people, night after night doin' it right
    Sunset people, doin' it right night after night Writer/s: HAROLD FALTERMEIER, KEITH FORSEY, PETE BELLOTTE

  • Randy from Fayettevile, ArWhat memories? My girlfriend & now wife, Seedy Sandy, had the album "Bad Girls" and we used to wonder about "the West Coast Scene" that our minds envisioned courtesy of these lyrics. Neither of us made it out to L.A.,but we loved the disco scene in the metro Kansas City area where we were living at the time. Sandy became a huge Donna Summer fan when this album was big on the charts too. Not too many people we know still remembers this song though. Now, in 2014, neither of us can disco any more. LOL! Sandy is pushing 488 lbs. and too big to boogie with me. But we have those good memories back when we could disco and were skinny as a reed.
  • Bill from Pensacola, Fllittle used but great skate song. roll on.
