Lyrics

CITY OF ANGELS
copyright © John A Read 2000

Highways snaking through the air,
Movers shaking everywhere.
People watching, sights to see.
Living high in Beverley.

Shining towers of power and glory,
Every grown ups bed time story.
Sun kissed land of dollar bills,
Growing wild up in the hills.

Chauffer driven limousines,
Made to measure beauty queens.
Working easy playing hard,
Cruising down the boulevard.

City of wishes, city of hope.
City of dreams come true.
City of light and shining stars,
L.A. City Of Angels.

Posing bodies shining brown,
Hanging out around the town.
Pumping iron looking mean,
Got to keep up with the scene.

Cocktail parties round the pool,
White tuxedos looking cool.
Talent scouting just for fun,
Underneath the L.A. sun.

Serving tables just for dimes,
Getting through the hungry times.
Palms to press, calls to make,
Waiting for that lucky break.

City of wishes, city of hope.
City of dreams come true.
City of light and shining stars,
L.A. City Of Angels.
