Each friday night
I've gotta moan
Cause it's not right
To be alone
And i'm alone

And so i sleep
Wake up at dawn
And leave before
The moon is gone
I know it's wrong

I've got to find some way out of here
Jump on a plane and i disappear
Maybe east of ohio
Maybe that's where i ought to go

Cause living here i've got so down
I guess that's why i've got to leave town
To find some place i haven't found
Cause i know that you'll be there waiting

Back, back, honey
Take me back, baby
I want to stay in l.a.
Back, back, baby
Take me back, sugar
I want to stay

When i get home
The house is dark
The only sound
Is joey's bark

Been looking for another place a while
Seen every town up in northern cal.
Searching further every country mile
I saw new york and i like it's style

But still i've gotta say i love l.a.
I guess that's why i feel i've gotta stay
The hot streets and the summer nights
So lonely

[ "back, back" chorus ]

I know it's sad but i love l.a.
It's even sadder that i'm here to stay
I might vacation on an isle away
But this is where i'll spend my dying day
So now it's time for me get me a wife
And live in town with her for all of my life
I'll understand when my hair turns grey
Why i
I live
In l.a.
