I Love L.A. Lyrics

Artist: Randy Newman
Album: Trouble In Paradise

Hate New York City
It's cold and it's damp
And all the people dressed like monkeys
Let's leave Chicago to the Eskimos
That town's a little bit too rugged
For you and me you bad girl

Rollin' down the Imperial Highway
With a big nasty redhead at my side
Santa Ana winds blowin' hot from the north
And we as born to ride

Roll down the window put down the top
Crank up the Beach Boys baby
Don't let the music stop
We're gonna ride it till we just can't ride it no more

>From the South Bay to the Valley
>From the West Side to the East Side
Everybody's very happy
'Cause the sun is shining all the time
Looks like another perfect day

I love L.A. (We love it)
I love L.A. (We love it)

Look at that mountain
Look at those trees
Look at that bum over there, man
He's down on his knees
Look at these women
There ain't nothin' like 'em nowhere

Century Boulevard (We love it)
Victory Boulevard (We love it)
Santa Monica Boulevard (We love it)
Sixth Street (We love it, we love it)

I love L.A.
I love L.A.
(We love it)

Lakers for the championship,
Boston for 2nd.
LA rules
by IT2 BROWN on 6/4/2008 7:02am
I get very emotional to this song, especially whenever the LAKERS win a championship, I cry my eyes out because it is the anthem of my favorite, and my city, that unites people of all color, race, and gender together as 1, just like if everyone was a neighbor.

GO LAKERS!!!!!!!!!
by ctal888 on 6/4/2008 7:07pm
Lakers all the way babeeeeeee!!! M.V.P, M.V.P, M.V.P!

by Scott K on 6/11/2008 9:43am
I'm with you 100%, Jasmine! Notice how there's no "I Love Boston" song....

by Celtic Pride on 6/13/2008 6:56am
Ain't lookin' so good for the La La Land Lakers now, is it?
by Cormafiano on 6/15/2008 3:04pm
regardless of basketball. los angeles is such an amazing city.. all of southern california really soooo many cities. i would hate to live in boston.only good thing they have there is asian food.
by LA Lover from Hawaii on 6/16/2008 12:19am
Actually it's lookin' good for LA after today's game- GO LAKERS! Good job, and thank you for a GRRRREAT Father's Day! (My dad's a Come on, LA- tie it up! We still in the fight- "Not In OUR House!" Celtics are close, but it ain't over yet, baby- Lakers ain't givin' it to ya THAT easy ;) Yup, Laker fans: we LOVERS, not haters :P

knicks fan says lets go lakers beat the celtics
by debbie from boston on 6/18/2008 10:54am
we beat l.a.
by Ankur on 6/20/2008 10:36am
you may have beat LA, but you still have to live in boston. by the way, since your last ring, we've had more than our fare share of parades. welcome back to relevance after 20 years in the can...LAKE SHOW BABY
by GO LAKERS! on 6/20/2008 2:39pm
Lakers > all
by Ronald on 6/24/2008 5:45pm
by GO CELTICS! on 6/25/2008 9:24am
We've had so many parades, we're almost tired of them. Yeah, it's terrible living in Boston, where things are actually interesting.
Oh and also, I wouldn't be so quick to pound your chest after getting giving up a 24 point lead in one game and getting completely embarrassed in game 6. Not 7, GAME 6.
One more thing. How are those Dodgers doing? Are they still around?
by Dodgers 4 Life on 7/8/2008 12:25pm
Go Blue!!!
by Ashley on 7/18/2008 7:53pm

"There's some kind of ignorance L.A. has that I'm proud of. The open car and the redhead, the Beach Boys... that sounds really good to me." - Randy Newman

Is that making fun of L.A.?
by Jackie Treehorn on 9/3/2008 1:01am
by Christopher McEneaney on 9/10/2008 9:54pm
Randy Newman has a great sense of irony, but I am pretty sure he does, or at least did at the time he wrote this song, love LA. And what's not to love. It's true, Boston is a terrible place to live, especially compared to LA, and by the way the Asian food here is AWFUL, I don't know where you would have heard otherwise.
by Elisabeth on 10/1/2008 12:40am
GO DODGERS! We love Em...

everyone who wrote that this is a LAKERS song just shtu the f*** up this is a dodgers song....the lakers suck go clippers but best of all go dodgers go blue crew we play this after every win...GO BLUE
by Jack on 10/13/2008 10:53pm
You guys realize that this song's a satire, right?
by Johnny D on 10/14/2008 9:02pm
Go Dodgers!!!!!!! Think Blue goo Lakers!!!!! I LOVE LA its all about every team in LA except the angels and clippers
by Giant Fan on 10/16/2008 12:51am
Good Riddance dodgers, leave the World Series to the real ballplayers.

That is the last time you will see Manny Ramirez in a dodger blue . . .
by Carljr on 10/25/2008 12:11am
mqe ~ close but not ironic... I think the word you are looking for is facetious or satiric.
rob ~ you are quoting RN after he made millions on the song. When he wrote it he did say it was in jest.
by Trish on 11/6/2008 5:29pm
LA is a dump...but this song rocks!
by sean159 on 11/9/2008 5:43am

by Paul Wilcox on 11/24/2008 9:07pm
Proud to be an LA native; proud to use this song as the grand finale of my automatic music playlist on MySpace; if this song isn't already LA's official city anthem, it should be.
by Kevin Michael on 12/9/2008 10:52am
I grew up loving this song and loving the Dodgers. Think Blue!
by L8KR FAN on 12/23/2008 10:12pm
Hey mqe, eat a dick! Randy Newman is LA! Go listen to Jay Z.
by Owen the cat on 12/25/2008 2:52pm
This song epitomises L.A..I think of it when I fly into L.A. and sing it when leaving regardless who's next to me.
by Big LA Billy Bad Ass on 1/7/2009 4:24am
Yeah, I see a lot of Boston tattoos.. homie ** cough -not- cough***please. Or any other city for that matter. You ain't down for your city unless you're rockin in. Come on down, we will show you ours. I went to Boston. Damn people swear they never seen something as bad ass as my LA HOMIE!
by Alan on 1/7/2009 11:14am
This song is not ironic in the least in comparison to that other take on LA life, "My Life is Good."
by FedericoD-Gen on 1/8/2009 12:59am
I Love L.A.!!! I Love LA Lakers!!!

C'Mon Purple and Gold our time is now!!! We gotta win the big one!

by The 2009 Boston Celtics on 2/19/2009 3:54am
Can the Lakers please stop kicking our ass? It's really embarassing and we have to keep saying childish things like "We're still the champs, man", Thanks!

by straight outta l.a. on 4/28/2009 11:01pm

definitely better than boston in almost every way. the only thing boston has that l.a. doesnt is the american history. other than that l.a. kicks boston's ass.
by Tony in Los Angeles on 4/29/2009 3:24pm
Go lakers, I am sure they will win it all this year. Its too bad that all of these weak ass Laker haters will fade back into the woodwork like the cowards they all are. L.A. is the place, born and raised here, all Laker haters suck, especially nesren in orange county who does not have a sports identity but does have an inferiority complex for one reason or another and decides only to hate Laker fans rather than come up with a take of her own about a sports team of her own. You suck nesrin!!! Its funny how these Laker haters hide behind talk radio to get off their stupid takes. Come on out to staples boys and girls and hang out in the parking lot and run those takes publicly. I highly doubt that will happen!
by Go DoDgerS!! on 5/3/2009 1:13pm
we love it!
by Tony in Los Angeles on 5/5/2009 10:05am
Go Dodgers, best team in baseball. Shout out to Laker fans, don't get discouraged about last nights game 1 loss to Houston. The Lakers will win this in 6. See ya all at the parade!!!
by qUEEN kIM on 5/6/2009 3:37pm
i love LA and i LOVE the Dodgers! i love how they play this song at the end of all dodger games! im always on my seat singing it loud and proud!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE END this Celtics nightmare Lets go LAKERS
by Dan on 6/20/2010 2:05am
FYI's infested with white, anglo-saxon, euro-trash. Los Angeles is MEXICAN.

by celtics suck again on 6/22/2010 6:15pm
LA is number one again and will be forever, GOD is a Laker fan :), Celtics suck, more than half of their total championships were in one decade where there were not so quality opponents, where as Lakers have consistantly produced championships. Even this year, look at Boston's division, it is a joke. GO LAKERS, we will 3peat again, Championship # 17 to tie the loosers from the East.
by RE: To adam on 6/29/2010 12:36pm
if u r a laker fan then u know what song plays every time they win a game right...well the reason everybody is talking about basketball is thats this song has unofficially become the LAKERS ANTHEM
by Denise<33 on 6/30/2010 6:46pm
This is not just the dodger or laker or anyother team in LA'S anthem. IT is LA's song for all the team that are truly in LA.
I LOVE LA!<3333333

by true 2001 2002 champs on 7/31/2011 5:14am
you all delusional people know that without the officials help the lakers are done, oh and by the way they got swept by the mav's. the one and only reason the lakers have had their success is the NBOA

Every born and bred LA person totally gets this song! It sums up the feeling of living the life here and you can just feel the joy of the city in Newman's happy anthem.
by LCN on 8/17/2012 11:27pm
Yeah ... no place like it. I love it; can't imagine living anywhere else.
by zed officious on 8/25/2012 11:15pm
gotta love Randy Newman. He is the man when it comes to layered meanings. How many songwriters can consistently produce something like this? He's simultaneaously making fun of and celebrating LA! You can feel the love with the wink. Compared to the rest of the country LA is a wonderland where even the bum on the sidewalk cannot distract from the beautiful scenery; somehow he becomes a piece of the fun. If Laker fans listened to more of Randy Newman they might learn something and become more complex individuals...but then again It's another perfect day. I love it!
by Randy Newman on 5/11/2013 11:26am
Do none of you simpletons understand this song at all? I weep for humanity.
by Paul J. Hannig, Ph.D. MFT on 10/14/2013 6:06pm
Randy Newman's ''I love La,'' should be LA's theme song. It captures all of the deep primal feelings. My wife and I will perform this song on the 3rd St promenade. We'd love it.

Working in Connecticut now, it's like being in a Redneck Land without Southern manners, and either COLD or muggy hot. I'll take LA over the East Coast any day!!
