Leo drives his Mustang along ocean Boulevard He works hard for his money Spent it all on his car Rents a one-room apartment that no one's ever seen But he makes love on the back seat To the girl of his dreams She wears high heels and lycra Shows off her curves She did aerobics and surgery Keep 'em well preserved She thinks, this guy, Leo Seems like he's got it all He's got a job in the business He says he'll make a few calls He's gto friends in high places All he has to do is phone She bites her lips as he takes her He makes love like he's alone Break the bad news to the angel in the morning He takes the car to the car wash When the shine goes away He leaves her smudge-eyed and stranded It's a beautiful day.... There's a man in the valley He met on Ocean Way He's got everything Leo dreams He's got a yacht in the bay Leo drives down to see him With an idea or two 'Could make him big in the business Turn the lies into truths But the car don't mean nothin Cause the man's worldly wise He sees the white teeth and the sun tan With nobody inside I'm a guest of this city I'm by the pool on the roof Poolside is pretty You can feel the earth move... This is a town full of Leos The sun shines on the cars And the buses of tourists do the homes of the stars 'Hotel California' goes around in my head And the folks who are loaded keep a gun by the bed But you can't help but notice.... The poor wind up dead. And the kids on the east side watch the cars going by They never could have if they worked all their lives Take a gun and go shopping Take a drug for the pain And the pain goes away It's a beautiful day God bless these star-worn streets Shine on these perfect days Stretch out on Venice Beach Can we dream better dreams than these?..
