Van Dyke Parks – Palm Desert lyrics

By Palm Desert
To market to buy
Tenderfoot up to date
Palms of the real estate

By Palm Desert
Springs often run dry
I came west unto Hollywood
Never-never land

Juxtaposed to B B D and O
Beyond San Fernando
On hillside manors
On the banks of toxicity
Those below and those above the same

Dreams are still born
In Hollywood I don't understand
Just suppose the youngster knows
He's had a good deal of fortune
And up through the babble
On the fair banks complicity
Buy your leave or stay beyond the game

Palm Desert
Not fade away
Palm Desert
I wish I could stay
Palm Desert
Sages abound

So head your head
To the ground round

Meanwhile in the wild west
Of Hollywood age is losing hold
Inasmuch as you are touched
To have withstood
By the very old search
For the truth within
The bounds of toxicity
Left unsung
So I have strung the frame
