    Lyrics

    kicked in his door at 5 AM
    "I've come for my bike" I told the repo man
    My 920's gonna take me far today
    You can travel for miles and never leave L.A.

    I've come a long way
    I've come a long way
    I've gone 500 miles today
    I've come a long way
    I've come along way
    And never even left L.A.

    I drive by the Plaza where the gay boys pose
    Stand in their windows wearing no clothes
    I heard the screams of the dying dark
    Through the sweet green icing of MacArthur Park
    And then I crossed the river into East L.A.
    Pescado mojado me encontre
    And I've given up on rock 'n roll
    And I'm saving up for norteno
    The river she runs by the railroad tracks
    I swear I'll never take it back
    A train, she cries on the midnight hour
    All along the Watts Tower
    Ohhhhhhhhhhh

    I've come a long way
    I've come a long way
    I've gone 500 miles today
    I've come a long way
    I've come along way
    And never even left L.A.

    I gunned it down to San Pedro Bay
    Watched my ship sail in, watched her sail away
    The sun was sinking into the sea
    But a ball of fire inside of me
    Was burning my motor and driving me hard
    Past the big hair on the Boulevard
    And up Mulholland where I made the scene
    Like the one that took little Jimmy Dean
    And then I shimmied up Wilshire like a little silk worm
    Past the rodeo and the pachyderm
    And then I stopped for coffee at an art cafe
    I saw the repo man and made my getaway
    Doing the Eagle Rock
    Heading for the hills
    Oh try to let my engines cool
    And it is not my fault that this town shakes
    I saw the falling rock and I hit my brakes

    I've come a long way
    I've come a long way
    I've gone 500 miles today
    I've come a long way
    I've come along way
    And never even left L.A.

    Now you tow it to the repo man's front door
    And you give him these keys, I don't need them no more
    You tow it to the repo man's front door
    And you give him these keys, I don't need them no more

    I've come a long way
    I've come a long way
    I've gone 500 miles today
    I've come a long way
    I've come along way
    And never even left L.A.
    I've come a long way
    I've come a long way
    I've gone 500 miles today
    I've come a long way
    I've come along way
    And never even left L.A.
    And never even left L.A.
    And never even left L.A.
