“Cruisin’” Lyrics

Lucy and Ramona cruisin’ through the jungles of L.A.
Hopin’ to promote a dream somewhere along the way
They’re rollin’ through the streets, lookin’ for a disco
Passin’ up the treats from a kid named Cisco
Tryin’ to make connections
With their blemish-free complexions
And just as fate would have it
They ended up with Sunset Sam

Sam was sellin’ watches from a suitcase on a T.V. tray
And Lucy and Ramona were tryin’ to figure out if he was gay
The three of them were standing, staring at each other
When the light behind their eyes blew each other’s cover
The ancient code was branded
And each of them was handed
A ticket to their kingdom
’Cause they saw their brother Sunset Sam

Lucy and Ramona and Sunset Sam
People on the streets tryin’ to find a plan
People on the streets lookin’ for the land
Lucy and Ramona
And their brother Sunset Sam

Lucy was from Compton, and uh, she met Ramona at the zoo, ah
Ramona was from Brooklyn, she left when she was twenty-two
Sam was a native of the Arizona desert
But he split when he was slated for some governmental make work
Their differences subsided
When the common bond was sighted
They were all from the same place
That made the famous Sunset Sam

Lucy and Ramona and Sunset Sam
People on the streets tryin’ to find a plan
People on the streets lookin’ for the land
Lucy and Ramona
And their brother Sunset Sam

Yes uh, Lucy and Ramona and Sunset Sam
People on the streets tryin’ to find a plan
People on the streets just lookin’ for the land
Lucy and Ramona
And their brother Sunset Sam
