Friday Lyrics Mash: Hotel California (Love)

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
It’s all good, from Diego to tha Bay
I been in the game for ten years makin’ rap tunes
Last thing I remember, I was
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Welcome to the Hotel California
From Oakland to Sac-town
Any time of year (Any time of year)
Please bring me my wine
Welcome to the Hotel California
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Such a lovely face

Cali is where they put they mack down
So you know the Row won’t bow down to no man
Uh, yeah, uh, Long Beach in tha house, uh yeah
Yeah, That’s right
California… knows how to party
I had to stop for the night
We keep it rockin’! We keep it rockin’!
The life of a West Side playa where cowards die and it’s all ball
Pasadena, where you at
Just to hear them say…
The track hits ya eardrum like a slug to ya chest
In L.A. we wearin’ Chucks not Ballies (that’s right)

Such a lovely face
Uh, California Love
Frisco, Frisco
To the place I was before
We are programmed to receive.

Your city is tha bomb if your city makin’ pay
You can checkout any time you like
I thought I heard them say…
But you can never leave!

She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls friends
There she stood in the doorway
In the city of good ol’ Watts
Shake it shake it baby

In the city, the city of Compton
California… knows how to party
I heard the mission bell
In the city of L.A.
But they just can’t kill the beast
Shake it shake it baby
Only in Cali where we riot, not rally, to live and die
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise)
Bumpin’ and grindin’ like a slow jam, it’s West Side

Relax, said the night man,
Running for the door
Now make it shake…
The state where ya never find a dance floor empty
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Shake it shake it, mama
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget
Shake it shake it, baby
And I was thinking to myself,
And in the master’s chambers,
Even Hollywood tryin’ to get a piece, baby

And still those voices are calling from far away,
West coast, west coast
California love!
Throw it up y’all, throw it up, Throw it up
California love

Mirrors on the ceiling
And pimps be on a mission for them greens
Cause you and I know it’s tha best side
Hey, you know LA is up in this
Out on bail fresh outta jail, California dreamin’
Bring your alibis

Flossin’ but have caution we collide with other crews
Say what you say
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Throw up a finger if ya feel the same way
