California Love (Original Version)

California...knows how to party
California...knows how to party
In the citaaay of L.A.
In the citaaay of good ol' Watts
In the citaaay, the city of Compton.
We keep it rockin! We keep it rockin!
Now let me welcome everybody to the wild, wild west
A state that's untouchable like Elliot Ness
The track hits ya eardrum, like a slug to ya chest
Pack a vest for your Jimmy in the city of ***
We in that sunshine state with a bomb ass hemp beat
the state where ya never find a dance floor empty.
And pimps be on a mission for them greens
lean mean money-makin'-machines servin' fiends.
I been in the game for ten years makin' rap tunes
ever since honeys was wearin' sassoon.
Now it's '95
and they clock me and watch me
diamonds shinin'
lookin' like I robbed Liberace.
It's all good, from Diego to tha Bay
Your city is tha bomb if your city makin' pay
Throw up a finger if ya' feel the same way
Dre puttin' it down for Californ-i-a.
California....knows how to party
California....knows how to party
In tha citaaay of LA
In tha citaaay of good ol' Watts
In the citaaay, the city of Compton.
We Keep it Rockin'
We Keep it Rockin'
(Dre) Yeah, now make it shake! come on!
Shake Shake it baby
Shake Shake it, Shake it baby
Shake Shake it, Shake it Cali(Shake it Cali)
Shake Shake it baby
Shake Shake it
Shake Shake it mama
Shake it Cali
Out on bail fresh outta jail
California dreamin'Soon as I stepped on the scene
I'm hearin' hoochies screamin'.
Fiendin' for money and alcohol
the life of a west side playa'
where cowards die, and the strong ball
Only in Cali where we riot now rallies are live and die.
In L.A. we wearin' chucks not Ballies. (yea, that's right)
Dressed in Locs and khaki suits
and ride is what we do.
Flossin' but have caution
we collide with other crews.
Famous cause we program worldwide
let'em recognize from Longbeach to Rosecrans
Bumpin' and Grindin' like a slow jam
it's west side
so you know the Row won't bow down to no man.
Say what you say
but give me that bomb beat from Dre
let me serenade the streets of L.A.
From Oakland to Sacktown
The Bay area and back down
California.....knows how to party
Cali is where they put they mack down
California.....knows how to party
In tha Citaaay of LA
In tha Citaaay of good ol' Watts
In the citaaay, the city of Compton.
We keep it Rockin'
We Keep it Rockin'
(Dre) yeah, yeah now make it shake...uuhhh

Shake Shake it mama, Shake it Cali
(Shake it Cali)
Shake Shake it baby
