London, New York, Paris
Some sort of fashion house
Some label or other, some big name
But not LA, not LA.

A label there would be Beverly Hills
Or maybe Hollywood
Not the city spread too wide
Not Los Angeles.

Itís a complaint that youíll hear again
In LA thereís no there there
No distinction, no smell of the town
No piss in the subway or morning croissant.

Thatís the shadow, thatís the strip
The walmart of a shell of a city
No place to walk just to be seen
No promenade, only boulevards.

Paris at night, that I remember
London with its deep tube
New York makes me dizzy in glass canyons
In LA, Iím just passing through.
