Lyrics:

One, two, three...

Midnight in L.A.
Midnight in L.A.
The kids[?] and vagabonds will have their way
Midnight in L.A.
It's 8 a.m. in old London Town
Midnight in L.A.
Don't let this city ever get you down
There's always time to play

I like the smog
And the smell of eucalyptus trees
Over the canyon
The traffic cones[?] that wind on down
Twilight hits the Sunset Strip
Feel fragile and alone
I thought I'd catch the night while it's still young

Midnight in L.A.
There's always time to play
The kids[?] and vagabonds are out there too
I'm okay, at midnight in L.A.

8 a.m. in old London Town
Midnight in L.A.
Don't let this city ever get you down
There's always another day

I like to walk
Sweet memories pull at my soul
The sleazy nights on Yucca Street
That seedy hotel I called home
Just [?] I cried
Bracing[?], exciting shows
The Palladium, the Roxy, and the Whiskey A Go Go

It's midnight in L.A.
There's still more time to play
It's 8 a.m. in old London Town
Midnight in L.A.
Don't let this city ever bring you down
There's always another day

See struggling city punks
Thrash eagerly in guitar showrooms
When I've had enough
I move on down to Hollywood
Nothing quite so entertaining
Watching yourself annihilating
Culture from the bottom of my glass

I miss this city when I'm away
Seductive, gleaming lady
London city so far away
It's okay baby, maybe

Midnight in L.A.
Midnight in L.A.
Midnight in L.A.
London Town is oh, so far away
London Town is oh, so far away

Good morning. This is BBC News.
