Behind the scenes

Lyrics

Down on the West Coast, they got a sayin’,
If you're not drinking, then you're not playing,
But you got the music, you got the music,
In you, don't you?

Down on the West Coast, I get this feeling, like,
It all could happen, that's why I'm leaving,
You for the moment, you for the moment,
Boy blue, yeah, you.

You're falling hard at the show,
I'm feeling hot to the touch,
You say you miss me, and I wanna say,
"I miss you so much.”
But something keeps me really quiet,
I'm alive, I'm a lush,
Your love, your love, your love.

I can see my baby swinging,
His parliament's on fire and his hands are up.
On the balcony and I'm singing,
Ooh baby, ooh baby, I'm in love.
I can see my sweet boy swaying,
He's crazy y cubano como yo, my love.
On the balcony and I'm saying,
Move baby, move baby, I'm in love.

I'm in love, I’m in love,
I’m in love, I'm in love.

Mic check, one, two, get it girl!

Down on the West Coast, they got their icons,
The silver starlets, their queens of Saigons,
And you got the music, you’ve got the music,
In you, don't you?

Down on the West Coast, they love their movies,
Their Golden Gods and rock 'n' roll groupies,
And you got the music, you got the music,
In you, don't you?

You push it hard, I pull away,
I'm feeling hot and on fire.
I guess that no one ever really,
Made me feel that much higher.
Te deseo, cariño, boy,
It's you I desire,
Your love, your love, your love.

I can see my baby swinging,
His parliament's on fire and his hands are up.
On the balcony and I'm singing,
Ooh baby, ooh baby, I'm in love.

I can see my sweet boy swaying,
He's crazy y cubano como yo, my love.
On the balcony and I'm saying,
Move baby, move baby, I'm in love.

I can see my baby swinging,
His parliament's on fire and his hands are up.
On the balcony and I'm singing,
Ooh baby, ooh baby, I'm in love.

I can see my sweet boy swaying,
He's crazy y cubano como yo, my love.
On the balcony and I'm saying,
Move baby, move baby, I'm in love.

I’m in love, I’m in love.
