I have a crush
On this here city
Another perfect LA summer
Another day so pretty

There’s an awful lot of beauty
And a whole lotta gritty
Some seen and sometimes hidden
In this here city

Here we go!

So come on saddle up
In your jeans and leather
Wrap your arms around me now
We’re gonna ride together

Today we’ll see mountains
The desert and the sea
So hold on tight, ready, set, go
On a one, two, three


Ready set go, on a one, two, three
I gotta few places I want you to see
Gonna, do my best gonna be your guide
Through Los Angeles were gonna ride, ride, ride

We’ll start with Edendale, Glendale, Palmdale, Signal Hill
Echo Park, Highland Park, Griffith Park, Bunker Hill

Sun Valley, Simi Valley, Green Valley, Westlake
Vernon, Hermon, Sherman Oaks and Silver Lake

Covina, West Covina, Gardena
Temple City, La Puente, Altadena, Pasadena

Lakewood, Lynnwood, Brentwood, Inglewood
Artesia, Cerritos, Hawaiian Gardens, Hollywood

Topanga, La Tuna, Alhambra
Sylmar, Diamond Bar, Azusa, Tarzana

Chinatown, Koreatown, Historic Filipinotown
Eagle Rock, Little Rock, they all rock, Travel Town

Hawthorne, Watts, Los Feliz, La Canada

Here I grew up, I think I’m gonna stay
I have a crush, a crush on LA
I think of my dad, he bought a train fare
To a new life, a story not rare

City vast, wonders abound
What you’re lookin’ for, I bet can be found
And you know, we ain’t seen nothin’ yet
