Weezer - Beverly Hills

Where I come from isn't all that great
My automobile is a piece of crap
My fashion sense is a little whack
And my friends are just as screwy as me

I didn't go to boarding schools
Preppy girls never looked at me
Why should they, I ain't nobody
Got nothing in my pocket

Beverly Hills... That's where I want to be! (hey baby)(hey baby)
Living in Beverly Hills...
Beverly Hills... Rolling like a celebrity! (hey baby)(hey baby)
Living in Beverly Hills...

Look at all those movie stars
They're all so beautiful and clean
When the housemaids scrub the floors
They get the spaces in between

I wanna live a life like that
I wanna be just like a king
Take my picture by the pool
Cause I'm the next big thing in

Beverly Hills... That's where I want to be! (hey baby)(hey baby)
Living in Beverly Hills...
Beverly Hills... Rolling like a celebrity! (hey, baby)(hey, baby)
Living in Beverly Hills...

*Spoken*
Truth is... I don't stand a chanceoooooooooooooooh
It's something that you're born into... Oooooooooooooooh
And I just don't belong... Ooooooooooooooooooooooooh

No I don't - I'm just a no class, beat down fool
And I will always be that way
I might as well enjoy my life
And watch the stars play

Beverly Hills... That's where I want to be! (hey baby)(hey baby)
Living in Beverly Hills...
Beverly Hills... Rolling like a celebrity! (hey baby)(hey baby)
Living in Beverly Hills...

Beverly hills, Beverly hills, (yeah)
Beverly hills, Beverly hills, (hey baby)(hey baby)
Beverly hills, Beverly hills, Beverly hills, Livin' in Beverly hills

"Beverly Hills" is a song by American rock band Weezer. It is the first single from the band's fifth album, Make Believe. "Beverly Hills" was released to US radio on March 28, 2005. The song features Stephanie Eitel of Agent Sparks on the chorus on backup vocals, performing the "gimme, gimme" hook. Rivers Cuomo's story behind "Beverly Hills": "I was at the opening of the new Hollywood Bowl and I flipped through the program and I saw a picture of Wilson Phillips. And for some reason I just thought how nice it would be to marry, like, an 'established' celebrity and live in Beverly Hills and be part of that world. And it was a totally sincere desire. And then I wrote that song, Beverly Hills. For some reason, by the time it came out—and the video came out—it got twisted around into something that seemed sarcastic. But originally it wasn't meant to be sarcastic at all." Cuomo stated that "Beverly Hills" and the solo, third verse, and last chorus of "Falling for You" (from Pinkerton) are his proudest musical achievements: "It's incredibly fun: a great beat, guitar riffs, catchy vocal style. Besides that, I think the lyrics are incredible in a very understated way. I might as well enjoy my life and watch the stars play. I love it! With this one song we were able to transcend our little niche and connect with all kinds of people, young and old, from all kinds of backgrounds."
