[Verse 1:]
This hole in the wall where the music they play
Is the kind you listen to, to wash your troubles away
She sits all alone, with her drink on it's way
Posted with her eyes closed
As left to right her head sways

[Pre-Chorus:]
(ohh soo beautiful all I could think is her vive wasn't no ones I've ever seen
Hi would you mind if I take a seat)
So I sat and as we started to chat that's when she told me

[Chorus:]
She's from Philadelphia she grew up on the west side
A 1 room apartment in L.A. where she now resides
Oh Ms. Philadelphia though we just meet tonight
Can I be a part of your life

[Verse 2:]
Her favorite color's red she has two dogs and a goldfish
She say's after law school she wants a career before kids
We spoke forever on topics like religion and politics
Up until the music stopped and our time was at it's end

[Pre Chorus:]
(ohh as the lights came up ever so slow we had romanced and I wasn't aboput to let it go)
As I pulled out her chair so that we could leave
I asked her was it too soon to ask her can you spend the night with me, she

[Bridge:]
Ms. p-h-i-l-l-y can we try to do this
I'm hope I'm not asking to much but
Can I get a little hometown love
Ms. p-h-i-l-l-y let's just try to do this
I'm hope I'm not asking to much but
Can I get a little hometown love

[Chorus x2:]
She's from Philadelphia she grew up on the west side
A 1 room apartment in L.A. where she now resides
Oh Ms. Philadelphia though we just meet tonight
Can I be a part of your life
