“Beverly Hills” Lyrics

Golden arches through the window
Livin’ in the slums of Beverly Hills
Plastic food and paper people
Crooked doctors hockin’ pills

Livin’ in the slums of Beverly Hills
Livin’ in the slums of Beverly Hills

Puts the trash out every Thursday
Puts the children out at night
Builds a fence around your neighbors
Case that fool might wanna fight

Livin’ in the slums of Beverly Hills
Hangin’ around just waitin’ until
Somebody buys her another thrill
Livin’ in the slums of Beverly Hills

She don’t wear nothing that isn’t Gucci
She don’t drive nothing that isn’t new
She won’t forget the starving children
Maybe she’ll hire one or two

Any fool may soon enjoy her
Just buy her clothes and jewelery
Marry rich then get a lawyer
Her custom built philosophy

Livin’ in the slums of Beverly Hills
Hangin’ around just waitin’ until
Somebody buys her another thrill
Livin’ in the slums of Beverly Hills

Livin’ in the slums of Beverly Hills
Hangin’ around just waitin’ until
Somebody buys her another thrill
Livin’ in the slums of Beverly
I hope I will never be
Livin’ in the slums of Beverly Hills
