Lyrics

First Time in LA
(N.Lawson/D.Effren © 2017)

Verse:
Woke up in a hotel on Century Boulevard
In a room with a runway view
I had jet lag and I fell hard
So I stayed in bed till noon

Kelly served me coffee naked
Both piping hot and sugar sweet
But hotel robes are overrated
When you wake up to the city beat

Chorus:
First time in LA
Never thought I’d come this way
Hollywood and Rodeo Drive
I swear this town is so alive
Saw Clive Davis in a limousine
Winked at me before light turned green
I said - I know who you are
And he said - kid, you’re gonna be a star

Verse 2:
She tugged on the drapes and pulled them back
Spilling in the LA sun
Saying get up, its late you fool, unpack!
We’re filling up this day with fun

Until I came to this neighborhood
You know I never believed in signs
But one said welcome to Hollywood
And the other said – sign on the dotted line

Bridge:
They say anything can happen and it usually does
Something blowing in the air like an Oscar buzz
There’s magic in the glare from the white cabanas
Riding on the tail of the Santa Anas

Chorus:
First time in LA hey
Never thought I’d feel this way
Malibu, Venice, Rodeo Drive
I swear this town is so alive
Saw Clive Davis in a limousine
Winked at me before light turned green
I said - I know who you are
And he said - kid, you’re gonna be a star
