The Lyrics

from the "8 Mile" soundtrack
There's places I been, some people I met
Southern California ain't the place for me
Been around LA, not for me
The traffic too crowded, and the population over-crowded
There's places I been, some people I met
Southern Nevada ain't the place for me
Been to Las Vegas, not for me
Hundred degrees in the summer, and there's no winter snows

I made a mistake when I moved to Vegas to attend UNLV
I cannot stand the dry heat it's over a hundred degrees
How about the night scene, everyone's out runnin' the streets
If you wanna know where to go try a club called The Beach
Took a trip drive up to see Reno
Watch the numbers come up, I'm playing keno
I went skydiving and loved it so I did it again
The second time I did it was in Mount Pleasant, Michigan
This time I went with two other friends
Took a drive to San Francisco to see the Golden State Bridge
Also with a tour of Alcatraz, this is what I did
Raiders is the team b*tch!
Oakland I been there, Sacramento I been there
But I don't think you care
Been to Funland located in Maine
Went into a haunted house
Almost drove me insane
Guy jumped out and scared me!
My parents tried to warm me


If there's a place that fits my perfect lifestyle
Then I'll be there in an instant
Introduce me to the life, then just let me adapt
To the hood so I can use to - Oh no!

Picture a perfect living
Picture me in a pimp hat
Picture me gettin' girls
Picture me in a cadillac
Picture police mad because they ain't got that
Picture me going broke
Picture me on craps tables
Picture me coming up
Picture me rags to riches
Picture me blowing up
Now picture me going back
To sin city or LA to live, sh*t
Picture that!
I've been down to Texas, in a city called Austin
Been to the east coast everyone knows Boston
Providence, Rhode Island, Hersey, Pennsylvania
Cross the bridge, Ontario Canada, thought I told ya
Wolveroses, once again, there I went, I'm outta here!
