I'd like to dedicate this song right here to my beautiful wife Kim who been down wit me since 1989 threw thick and thin we done seen the world together and I love you forever

Chorus:
I can show you the Palms, the Mall,
The Taj Mahal to the strip in M.I.A.
I can show you the waterfalls in Spain and Progue
To the beach in Saint Tropez
I can show you the world girl the world girl but
Ain't nothin' else like L.A.
I can show you the world girl the world girl but
Ain't nothin' like L.A.

Verse 1:
When they come to L.A. they got the wrong impression
When they come to L.A. they got to learn they lesson.
When they come to west coast it's such an obsession
When they come to play it out I'm just an exception
When they come to you girl I need your affection
Everytime you walk by you get my inspection
And all you gotta do now is make your selection
And it wont be hard to win this election

Chorus:
I can show you the Palms, the Mall,
The Taj Mahal to the strip in M.I.A.
I can show you the waterfalls in Spain and Progue
To the beach in Saint Tropez
I can show you the world girl the world girl but
Ain't nothin' else like L.A.
I can show you the world girl the world girl but
Ain't nothin' like L.A.

Verse 2:
I done been around the world
I ain't impressed
I can't wait till we hit LAX
Tokyo is cool yeah I flew to UK
But can't nothin' fuck with Cali Forn I A
Especially LA I'm feelin' the bay
But nothin' like rollin' down PCH
Top down west-bound it's all good
You don't know Hollywood when you from Hollywood
Let's go to the hood and fuck with the haters
Then to the staples center hang with the Lakers
Number 6 is cool but 24's the champ
And even D Wade and Chris Bosh know that!

Chorus:
I can show you the Palms, the Mall,
The Taj Mahal to the strip in M.I.A.
I can show you the waterfalls in Spain and Progue
To the beach in Saint Tropez
I can show you the world girl the world girl but
Ain't nothin' else like L.A.
I can show you the world girl the world girl but
Ain't nothin' else like L.A.

Verse 3:
The BET Awards and even the Grammy's
They always pick L.A. over Miami
I love Miami, I ain't dissin' Miami
But where you u rather get rob for your Grammy
Ain't nothin' like Sunset Blvd
Compton and Watts if you wanna be hard
We got it all what you thought not at all
If you sicker then shit then take a Tylenol
It's just me and my woman
Versus all y'all
And we takin' a bow
For a curtain call
The Angels is lost
They don't wanna be found
If God was lookin' for em I can show him around

Chorus
I can show you the Palms, the Mall,
The Taj Mahal to the strip in M.I.A.
I can show you the waterfalls in Spain and Progue
To the beach in Saint Tropez
I can show you the world girl the world girl but
Ain't nothin' else like L.A.
I can show you the world girl the world girl but
Ain't nothin' like L.A.
