L.A. Girl

She was a one-horse, dimestore runaway
She had a one-track mind to see L.A.
I should've known she'd break my heart someday
But I followed her

She sees herself just the way she'd wannabe
Little did I realize she did the same to me
You know, I look back now, and it's plain to see
But I didn't

She's just an L.A. Girl
Saddled with a hayseed pearl
And I don't fit her Barbie Dreamlife
In her Barbie Dreamworld

She keeps her eyes on the prize, and it's paradise
She's got that one-track mind, so she don't think twice
But there's no hard work; it's just a roll of the dice
And that works for her

She can't afford all the trendiest restaurants
And it's all my fault 'cause I ain't got a lot
So she spends all her time with dilettantes
And I'm stuck watching it

I'm watching my L.A. Girl
Saddled with a hayseed pearl
And I don't fit her Barbie Dreamlife
In her Barbie Dreamworld

I used to wish she'd crawl on back someday
Now I wish I'd never given my life away
There's just no competing with L.A.
Not for an L.A. girl

Oh yeah, she's just an L.A. Girl
Saddled with a hayseed pearl
And I don't fit her Barbie Dreamlife
In her Barbie Dreamworld
