MANNY FREISER: Music

LA NIGHTS

(MANNY FREISER)

MANNY FREISER

Life was just simple back in the day when I was courting and marrying Patti. We had no money, but we had love, and we had music. Nearly every night after a dinner of Kraft mac and cheese dinner (25 cents a box -- add stick of butter and go nuts!) we filled the tank of my forest green GTO with gas (at seventeen cents per gallon, it was just about the least expensive activity) and drove around town checkin' out the city lights and the mansions, one of which we would soon surely own. With Hendryx, Cream, Joplin, Led Zep and Stones blasting and windows down to experience that LA jasmine in the summer air, we were probably as happy as we'd ever be......

Down the Golden Coast

Where the players play

How the palm trees sway

Love is always in the air

 

There I met a girl 

Flowers in her hair

She stole my heart away

What a fantasy we shared

 

LA nights City lights

Crusin' down the 101

Hand in hand with my only one 

And dreamin' on dreamin' on

LA nights City lights

The world below the stars above

This night was made for love

You and I LA nights

 

Advantage curve

You are almost in my lap again

Feel so good right now

Better than I don't know when

 

Tonight will be the night

A night we'll always remember

Gonna catch that lucky star

Re-light that glowing ember

 

REPEAT CHORUS

 

On a midnight run

Down the Magic Highway

Past gleaming city spires

Chase that dream we're on our way

 

So sing along with me 

Turn the music high

LA Girl you belong with me

Together we will fly

 

REPEAT CHORUS
