Classic 1980's smooth funk-jazz from Japanese chanteuse Yasuko Agawa, describing an LA Night. Lyrics:

Hmm.. Just got in from Tokyo
(L.A. Night don't you wanna treat it right)
Tell me cab driver, where is there to go
(L.A. Night don't you wanna treat it right)
Na na poo, what a view
They say the mountains look at you
In L.A., I got into a heavy mood
(L.A. Night, don't you wanna treat it right)
ummm... hmmm

Peoples faces are showin a lot of fun
(LA Night, don't you wanna treat it right)
They're at the beach, soaking up the sun
(LA Night, don't you wanna treat it right)
Goin down to Hollywood, to see Graumann's Chinese theater
The Coliseum to see the LA raiders
(L.A, L.A.)
(L.A, L.A, Nights)

Have you ever heard of concerts by the sea
(LA Night, don't you wanna treat it right)
Listen to a little Jazz band sing, makes me feel free
(LA Night, don't you wanna treat it right)
Over by the Boulevard, someone gave me his card and said
Little girl, don't you wanna be a star
(LA Night, don't you wanna treat it right)
