California love!

1-California...knows how to party.
  California...knows how to party.
  In the citaaay of L.A.
  In the citaaay of good ol' Watts
  In the citaaay, 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 tha Bay  
Your city is tha bomb if your city makin' pay
Throw up a finger if ya' feel the same way  
Dre puttin' it down for 
(repeat 1)

2-Shake it shake it baby!
  Shake it shake it baby!
  Shake it shake it mama!
  Shake it Cali!
  Shake it shake it baby!
  Shake it shake it shake it shake it...


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. (yea, that's right)
Dressed in Locs and khaki suits and ride is what we do
Flossin' but have caution we can lie with other crews.
Famous cause we program worldwide 
Let'em recognize from Longbeach to Rose grands
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 in bag down 
Cali is where they put they mack down
Give me love!
