You were brought up in a small town
Where everyone greeted with a morning smile
I mean the place was so free from crime
You could leave your front door open

And if your eyes were drawn from a lack of food
Or your pockets were short on cash
There was always someone close at hand
That you could always run to

You could have been a doctor and you could have been a nurse
But these things weren't good enough for you
So you decided to pack up all you own and get a one way ticket there
To a place where all the successful people went in order for them to do

I'm a big boy now and she's a strong girl
Remember only the strong can survive
Living in the land of la la

I'm a big boy now and she's a strong girl
Remember only the strong can survive
Living in the land of la la

L A, L A, la, la, la, la, L A
Hey, hey, land of la la
L A, L A, la, la, la, la, L A
Hey hey, the land of la la

You get off the bus, pick up a paper
And look through the classified
So that you might find a place
Suitable for you to move into

Then you turn around to pick up the duffle bag
That you brought along
But much to your surprise you find
Your bag has taken off walking

You dig in your wallet to get your last dime
But then recall you just spent your last dime on the newspaper
You're much too prideful but pride has no defense
When all you've got in your possession is the wallet in your hands

I'm a big boy now, she's a strong girl
Remember only the strong can survive
Living in the land of la la

I'm a big boy now and she's a strong girl
Remember only the strong can survive
Living in the land of la la

I'm a big boy now and she's a strong girl
Remember only the strong can survive
Living in the land of la la

L A, L A, la, la, la, la, L A
Hey, hey, livin' in the land of la la
L A, L A, la, la, la, la, L A
Hey, hey, livin' in the land of la la

L A, L A, la, la, la, la, L A
Hey, hey, livin' in the land of la la

Movie stars and great big cars and Perrier and fun all day
And that's enough to make anybody go wild
In the land of la la

He's a big boy now, she's a strong girl
But only the strong can survive
Living in the land of la la
