California, knows how to party
California, knows how to party
In the city of L. A.
In the city of good ol' Watts
In the city, the city of Compton
We keep it rockin', we keep it rockin'

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 s**

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
Californ I A

Shake it, shake it baby baby
Shake it, shake it mama, shake it Cali

Out on bail fresh outta jail, California dreamin'
Soon as I stepped on the scene, I'm hearin' hoochies screamin'
Fiendin' for money and alcohol
The life of a west side playa where cowards die and it's all war

Only in Cali where we riot not rally to live and die
In L. A. We wearin' Chucks not Ballies
(That's right, uh)
Dressed in Locs and khaki suits and ride is what we do
Flossin but have caution we collide with other crews

Famous 'cause we program worldwide
Let 'em recognize from Long Beach to Rosecrans
Bumpin' and grindin' like a slow jam, it's west side
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 Sacktown
The Bay Area and back down
Cali is where they put they mack down
Give me love

California

Let's show these fools how we do this on that west side
'Cause you and I know it's tha best side

Shake it mama shake it baby shake, shake it baby
Shake, shake it computer-er-er
