2Pac - California Love lyrics


(California love)

(California knows how to party)
(California knows how to party)

In the city of L.A.
In the city of good ol' Watts
In the city, the city of Compton
We keep it rockin', we keep it rockin'

Now let me welcome everybody to the wild, wild west
A state that's untouchable like Elliot Ness
The track hits ya eardrum like a slug to ya chest
Pack a vest for your Jimmy in the city of sex

We in that sunshine state with a bomb ass hemp beat
The state where ya never find a dance floor empty
And pimps be on a mission for them greens
Lean mean money-makin-machines servin' fiends

I been in the game for ten years makin' rap tunes
Ever since honeys was wearin' sassoon
Now it's '95 and they clock me and watch me
Diamonds shinin', lookin' like I robbed Liberace

It's all good, from Diego to the Bay
Your city is the bomb if your city makin' pay
Throw up a finger if ya feel the same way
Dre puttin' it down for Californ-i-a

(California) (California) (Knows how to party) (Knows how to party)
(California) West Coast (Knows how to party) That's right

(In the city of L.A.
In the city of good ol' Watts
In the city, the city of Compton
We keep it rockin', we keep it rockin')

Yeah, we'll make it shake, come on

(Shake it, shake it, baby
Shake it, shake it, baby
Shake it, shake it, mama
Shake it Cali) Cali

(Shake it, shake it, baby) That's right
(Shake it, shake it, baby
Shake it, shake it, mama
Shake it, Cali)

Out on bail, fresh outta jail
California dreamin'
Soon as I stepped on the scene
I'm hearin hoochies screamin'

Fiendin' for money and alcohol
The life of a West side playa where cowards die
Only in Cali where we riot now rallies are live and die
In L.A. we wearin' Chucks not Ballies (That's right)

Dressed in Locs and khaki suits and ride is what we do
Flossin' but have caution we collide with other crews
Famous 'cause we program worldwide
Let 'em recognize from Longbeach to Rosecrans

Bumpin' and grindin' like a slow jam, it's West side
So you know the row won't bow down to no man
Say what you say but give me that bomb beat from Dre
Let me serenade the streets of L.A.

From Oakland to Sacktown
The Bay Area and back down
Cali is where they put they mack down
Give me love!

(California) California (Knows how to party)
(California knows how to party)

(In the city) South side (Of L.A.
In the city of good ol' Watts) That's right
(In the city, the city of Compton
We keep it rockin', we keep it rockin'!)

Yeah, yeah, now make it shake, ah

(Shake it, shake it, baby
Shake it, shake it, baby
Shake it, shake it, mama
Shake it, Cali) Shake it, Cali

(Shake it, shake it, baby) Shake it, Cali
(Shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it) West coast
(Shake it, Cali)

Ah
Yeah, ah

Longbeach in the house, ah, yeah
Oaktown
Oakland definately in the house, hahaha

Frisko, Frisko
Hey, you know LA is up in this
Pasadena, where you at
Yeah, Ingelwood
Ingelwood always up to no good

Even Hollywood tryin' to get a piece, baby
Sacramento, Sacramento where ya at?
Yeah

Throw it up y'all, throw it up
Throw it up
Let's show these fools how we do this on that West side
'Cause you and I know it's the best side
