LIVING IN LA

Music and lyrics by Peter Schey


You're floating through the Beverly Hills
at magic mountain, you get your thrills
you know, you're living in LA,
you think that its okay

movie stars and movie screens
fantasy islands and fantasy dreams
you know, you're living in LA
you think that its okay

you disco days and you disco nights
you disco right through your strange lives
you know, you're living in LA
you think that its okay

CHORUS:

you're living in LA and you're gettin' by, day by day

you're living in LA and you're just gettin by,
that's what you say

* * * *

you salsa days and you salsa nights
palabra [band leader and keyboardist on this song] keeps your spirits so bright,

you know, you're living in LA,
you think that its okay

the immigration service man,
is putting people into his van,
you know, this place is LA
you think that it's okay

CHORUS:

you're living in LA and you're gettin' by day by day,
you're living in LA and you're gettin by, that's what you say



reggae to Jimmy Cliff all night,
reggae with Bob Marley and you feel out of sight,
you're living in LA,
so sure that its okay

the police man, with his big blue gun
he'll shoot your brother, an' he'll shoot your son
you know, that you're living in LA,
you think that its okay
living in LA,
you think that its okay

you're floating through the beverly hills
at magic mountain you get your thrills,

don't you know,
you're living in LA, think that its okay,
living in LA, think that it's okay
living in LA, think that it's okay
