[Carmen sung]
Out in L. A. And broke
On the ticket that this fellow sent me
One change of clothes in the suitcase
That my girlfriend anna lent me.
I stayed for awhile in his place
Runnin' with this crowd of his
Partyin' day after day
Meetin' everybody in the biz
Oh, they know how to do it inl. A.
They know how to make it seem brand new
Though it's true whaty they say
That it's only a dream
And a dream is a wish you wish for you
In la your dream may come true

[Goody spoken]
Lambchops... Tick tock.

[Lambchops spoken]
Sorry, carmen. We gotta go. We got finals.

[Carmen spoken]
No problem. Good seein' you guys.

[Joe spoken]
Adios, chica. If you get a chance, come check me out at the comedy club.

[Mabel spoken]
You take care, girl. And don't forget to eat.

[Schlomo spoken]
Go ahead, I'll catch up with you later.
Carmen, are you gonna be okay?

[Carmen spoken]
Hey, don't look so worried. I'm a survivor. But right now, I could use some cash.

[Schlomo spoken]
No problem. My dad sent me fifty for my birthday...

[Carmen spoken]
Thanks, I promise I will pay you back.

[Schlomo spoken]
Listen carmen, if you ever need anything, anytime day or night, you call, okay?

[Carmen spoken]
Thanks schlomo, you're the best.

[Schlomo spoken]
I love you carmen. Don't ever forget that.

[Carmen sung]
After the booze and the coke
The visions of the blue Pacific
After the two hundredth time
I told him he was just terrific

I woke up one late afternoon
And couldn't tell quite where I was
Left-over taste in my mouth
And the morning after buzz

I packed my bag and split and found myself a dancin' job
Worked the bar for tips and stripped for every lonely slob
Counted every single minute as the hours went by
Then fell in bed and cried til there were no more tears to cry

You try to stop the thought from comin'
That it never ends
You think about how far you are
From home and friends

You get thru one day at a time
You find a way of stayin' numb
Don't look in the mirror
To see what you've become

But they know how to do it in L.A.
They know hot to make it seem so new
Though it's true what they say
That's it's only a dream
And a dream is a wish you wish for you
In L.A. the dream may come true

Yes, they know how to do it in L.A.
They know how to make it seem brand new
Though it's true what they say, that it's only a dream
And a dream is a wish you wish for you
In L.A, in L.A., in L.A. the dreams may all come...

Yes, they know how to do it in L. A.
They know that somewhere up there the sky is blue
So smile when they say, "it's only a dream"
And you'll get what is comin' to you
In L. A.
In L. A.
In L. A.
Your dreams all come true
