You are number one in my book

Listen, El Segundo

I get it

You’re a nice city

Next to Manhattan Beach

And people

Often try to say

That they are in

Manhattan Beach

Which is fine


But I like

El Segundo

I like the times

I spent there

And my lady friend

Oh, and my little movie idea

That we talked about

During breaks

At the little pizza place

Where we worked that year

No, I’ll say I’m from

El Segundo, California

You can say

Manhattan Beach, California

Either way


They share one street somehow

But, then

Don’t we all

So I will see you

In El Segundo

And you can meet me

In Manhattan Beach
