Artist/Band: Dr. Dre
Lyrics for Song: California Love
Lyrics for Album: The Chronicle: Best Of The Works [2002]

California love!


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!

Verse One: Dr. Dre

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 sex

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


(repeat 1)


Shake it shake it baby

Shake it shake it baby

Shake it shake it mama

Shake it Cali

Shake it shake it baby

Shake it shake it shake it shake it...

Verse Two: 2Pac

Out on bail fresh out of jail, California dreamin

Soon as I step on the scene, I'm hearin hoochies screamin

Fiendin for money and alcohol, the life of a Westside player

where cowards die, and the strong ball

Only in Cali where we riot not rally to live and die

In L.A. we wearin Chucks not Ballies (yeah, 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 because we throw grands

Worldwide let 'em recognize from Long Beach to Rosecranz

Bumpin and grindin like a slow jam, it's Westside

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 Sac-town, the Bay Area and back down

Cali is where they put they mack down, give me love!


(dre) now make it shake...


Outro: Dre, 2Pac

uh, yeah, uh, longbeach in tha house, uh yeah

Oaktown, Oakland definately in tha house hahaha

Frisko, Frisko

(Tupac) hey, you know LA up in this

Pasadina, where you at

yeah, Ingelwood, Ingelwood always up to no good

(Tupac) even Hollywood tryin to get a piece baby

Sacramento, sacramento where ya at? uh yeah

Throw it up y'all, throw it up, Throw it up

Let's show these fools how we do this on that west side

Cause you and I know it's tha best side

yeah, That's riight

west coast, west coast

uh, California Love

California Love
