2Pac ft. Dr. Dre – California Love – 1995

    Paroles

    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!

    [Dr. Dre]
    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
    Californ-i-a

    California (california)…knows how to party (knows how to party!)
    California (west coast)…knows how to party (yes they do)(that’s right)
    In the city of L.A. (city of L.A.)
    In the city of good ol’ Watts (good ol’ Watts)
    In the city, the city of Compton (city of Compton)
    We keep it rockin! We keep it rockin! (come on, come on, come on…)

    Shake it shake it baby
    Shake it shake it, shake it baby
    Shake it shake it mama
    Shake it Cali
    Shake it shake it baby (thats right, uh)
    Shake it shake it baby baby, shake it shake it mama, shake it Cali…

    [2Pac]
    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
    and its all war
    Only in Cali where we riot not rally to live and die

    In L.A. we wearin Chucks not Ballies (that’s right, uh)
    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 Long Beach 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 Sactown
    The Bay Area and back down
    Cali is where they put they mack down
    Cali-love

    California (california)…knows how to party
    California…knows how to party (come on baby)
    In the city (south-central) of L.A. (L.A.)
    In the city of good ol’ Watts (uh, that’s right)
    In the city, the city of Compton (yup, yup)
    We keep it rockin! We keep it rockin! (yeah, yeah now make it shake – c’mon)

    Shake it shake it baby (uh)
    Shake it shake it, shake it baby (ahh, yeah)
    Shake it shake it mama (ahh)
    Shake it Cali (shake it Cali)
    Shake it shake it baby (shake it Cali)
    Shake it shake it, shake it shake it mama (west-coast), shake it Cali… (ooooooooheeooheo!)
