WEST LA FADEAWAY (ALTERNATE VERSION 1984) Lyrics by Grateful Dead
I'm looking for a chateau, 21 rooms but one will do
I'm looking for a chateau, 21 rooms but one will do
I don't want to buy it
I just want to rent it for a minute or two
I met an old mistake walking down the street today
I met an old mistake walking down the street today
Tried not to be mean
I didn't have one good word to say

West L.A. fadeaway, West L.A. fadeaway
Little red light on the highway,
Big green light on the speedway (hey hey hey)

Got a steady job haulin' items for the mob
Got a steady job haulin' items for the mob
pay was pathetic
It's a shame those boys can't be more copasetic

West L.A. fadeaway, West L.A. fadeaway
Little red light on the highway,
Big RED light on the speedway (hey hey hey)

I meet a West L.A. girl, already know what I need to know
I meet a West L.A. girl, already know what I need to know
name, address, and phone number
Lord, And just how far to go.

I'm looking for a chateau, 21 rooms but one will do
I'm looking for a chateau, 21 rooms but one will do
I don't want to rent 'em but I'd,
Just like to use 'em for a second or two
West L.A. fadeaway, West L.A. fadeaway
Little red light on the highway,
Big GREEN light on the speedway (hey hey hey)

Little red light on the highway,
Little GREEN light on the speedway (hey hey hey)

BIG RED light on the highway,
Little GREEN light on the speedway (hey hey hey)

(Lyrics from yet another generation of the song :)

I'm looking for a chateau, 21 rooms but one will do
I'm looking for a chateau, 21 rooms but one will do
I don't want to buy it
I just want to rent it for a minute or two
I met an old mistake walking down the street today
I met an old mistake walking down the street today
I didn't want to be mean about it
I couldn't think of one good thing to say.

West L.A. fadeaway, West L.A. fadeaway
Big red light on the highway, little green light on the freeway.

Got a steady job moving items for the mob
Got a steady job moving items for the mob
Know the pay's pathetic
It's a shame those boys couldn't be more copasetic

West L.A. fadeaway, West L.A. fadeaway
Big red light on the highway, little green light on the freeway.

I need a West L.A. girl, already know what I need to know
I need a West L.A. girl, already know what I need to know
Lord, just how far to go.

West L.A. fadeaway, here's one chance you say.
She tries to live by the Golden Rule.
Said you treat other people right,
Other people probably treat you cool.
