  • Down on the West Coast they got a sayin'
    "If you're not drinkin' then you're not playin'."
    But you've got the music, you've got the music
    In you, don't you?

    Down on the West Coast I get this feeling like
    It all could happen that's why I'm leaving
    You for the moment, you for the moment
    Boy Blue, yeah you

    You're flyin' high at push on, I'm feelin' hot to the touch
    You say you miss me, and I say I miss you so much
    But something keeps me really quiet, I'm alive I'm a lush
    Your love, your love, our love

    I can see my baby swingin'
    His Parliament's on fire and his hands are up
    On the balcony and I'm singing
    Ooh, baby, ooh, baby, I'm in love
    I can see my sweet boy swayin'
    He's crazy y Cubano como yo lala
    On the balcony and I'm saying
    Move baby, move baby, I'm in love
    I'm in love (I'm in love)
    I'm in love (I'm in love)

    Down on the West Coast, they got their icons
    Their silver starlets, their Queens of Saigon
    And you've got the music, you've got the music
    In you, don't you?

    Down on the West Coast, they love their movies
    Their golden gods and rock and roll groupies
    And you've got the music, you've got the music
    In you, don't you?

    You push it hard, I pull away, I'm feeling hotter than fire
    I guess that no one ever really made me feel that much higher
    Te deseo, cariño, boy, it's you I desire
    Your love, your love, our love

    I can see my baby swingin'
    His Parliament's on fire and his hands are up
    On the balcony and I'm singing
    Ooh, baby, ooh, baby, I'm in love
    I can see my sweet boy swayin'
    He's crazy y Cubano como yo lala
    On the balcony and I'm saying
    Move baby, move baby, I'm in love

    I can see my baby swingin'
    His Parliament's on fire and his hands are up
    On the balcony and I'm singing
    Ooh, baby, ooh, baby, I'm in love
    I can see my sweet boy swayin'
    He's crazy y Cubano como yo lala
    On the balcony and I'm saying
    Move baby, move baby, I'm in love
    I'm in love
    I'm in love Writer/s: ELIZABETH GRANT, RICK NOWELS
