Los Angeles

Album: Frank Black (1993)
  • I met a man
    He was a good man
    Sailing and shoring
    Dancing the beta can-can
    Making me foreign
    Oh yeah

    I want to live in Los Angeles
    Not the one in Los Angeles
    No, not the one in South California
    They got one in South Patagonia

    I want to live in Los Angeles
    Not the one in Los Angeles
    They got a bunch down in Moleville
    They got a bunch more still

    I want to live in Los Angeles
    Not the one in Los Angeles
    They got one in twenty-five two five
    Works just like a beehive

    I want to live in Los Angeles
    Not the one in Los Angeles
    Counting helicopters on Saturday night
    The symphony of the fair light

    I hear them saying Los Angeles
    In all the black and white movies
    And if you think they star-spangled us
    How come we say Los Angeleez?

    I'll wait in Los Angeles
    I'll wait in the pouring sun
    No way
    For not anyone
    No way

    I met a man
    He was a good man
    Sailing and shoring
    He got a betatron, man
    Talking that foreign
    Oh yeah

    I'll wait in Los Angeles
    I'll wait in the pouring sun
    No way
    For not anyone
    No way

    I'll wait in Los Angeles
    I'll wait in the pouring sun
    No way
    For not anyone
    No way
