Missing Persons – Walking In LA lyrics

Look ahead as we pass, try and focus on it
I won't be fooled by a cheap cinematic trick
It must have been just a cardboard cut out of a man
Top-forty cast off from a record stand
Walkin' in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A., nobody walks in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A., nobody walks in L. A.
I don't know could've been a lame jogger maybe
Or someone just about to do the freeway strangler baby
Shopping cart pusher or maybe someone groovie
One thing's for sure, he isn't starring in the movies.
'Cause he's walkin' in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A., nobody walks in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A., only a nobody walks in L. A.
Walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
Nobody's walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
Nobody's walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
Nobody's walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
You won't see a cop walkin' on the beat
Nobody's walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
You only see 'em drivin' cars out on the street
Nobody's walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
You won't see a kid walkin' home from school
Nobody's walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
Their mothers pick 'em up in a car pool
Nobody's walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
Walkin' in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A., nobody walks in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A., nobody walks in L. A.
Could it be that the smog's playing tricks on my eyes
Or is it a rollerskater in some kind of headphone disguise
Maybe somebody who just ran out of gas,
Making his way back to the pumps the best way he can.
Walkin' in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A., nobody walks in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A., nobody walks in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A., nobody walks in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A.
Walkin' in L. A., only a nobody walks in L. A.
Nobody's walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
Nobody's walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
Nobody's walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
Nobody's walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
Nobody's walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
Nobody's walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin' walkin'
Nobody walks in L. A

    I walk in L. A. In 1982, I walked and walked in L. A. In fact, I was flown in by J. Delesma and went to J. Carson's private studio, by appointment. I talked with several people through the intercom, and complained of a hotel that would'nt let me back into my room after I had just checked in and locked my key in the room. My luggage was comprised of a couple of registration certificates. I am a lyracist, but am obstructed from royalties, some of which I composed as a juvenile in and out of the ohio youth commission. Others, I have yet to receive compensation, but I like missing persons songs.
