It seems that Los Angeles,
is not a 24 hour town,
When we moved here from NY,
neighbors told us to turn it down.
They didn’t like our high heels,
clomping up and down the stairs,
And when I played my bass guitar,
It so did offend their ears.
And though we thought they were uptight,
and we scoffed at their restrictions,
It seemed our rebelliousness,
could lead to an eviction.
Now I have a job and kids,
and do not mean to complain,
But it sure is difficult
to wake up at 6 am.
And though the neighbors are lovely,
they sometimes party at night,
So am I hypocritical,
when I ask them to be quiet?
