Tom: G
Power 106!
LA, it's ya girl, Yesi Ortiz
Got some brand-new music
I need y'all to turn it up and let me know what you think
It's Lloyd, called Oakland, on Power 106

  Dm
I was making Japanese
         Am
And she's watching DVDs
   F           G
In Oakland, in Oakland
        Dm
Now I'm driving up the 5
        Am
And she waits till I arrive
   F           G
In Oakland, in Oakland
Dm
Everything, that I wanted
Am
Only gotta drive for the moment
F
If you tell me turn around then I'm on it
G
For the moment, but you know me
Dm
You know how I get when I'm lonely
Am
And I think about you and the moments
F                                    G 
But everything you do is so Oakland, so Oakland

     Dm
Foot on the gas
         Am
I'm just trying to pass
        F
All the red lights
        G
And the stop signs
    Dm
I'm ready to go
        Am
Before I get to The Bay
Babe, that's a problem
F
Because I'm way too scared to call
G
And you might get me to stay, and oh

        Dm
I don't really mind the drive
      Am
But I think I'd rather die
   F           G
In Oakland, in Oakland
        Dm
With my hands on two and ten
      Am
So I guess it all depends
   F           G
In Oakland, in Oakland
        Dm
And I'm nervous, truth be told
      Am
I never saw me growing old
   F           G
In Oakland, in Oakland
         Dm
And if I married you tonight
      Am
It would probably start a riot
   F           G
In Oakland, in Oakland

Dm      
Everything, that I needed
Am
Now that I got you in your feelings
F
Everything you won't say, you tweet it
G
And a nigga don't like that shit at all
Dm
So treated
Am
Can we just roll with the feeling?
F
Can we just roll for a minute?
G
Wait a minute

     Dm
Foot on the gas
         Am
I'm just trying to pass
        F
All the red lights
        G
And the stop signs
    Dm
I'm ready to go
        Am
Before I get to The Bay
Babe, that's a problem
F
Because I'm way too scared to call
G
And you might get me to stay, and oh

Dm
All the girlfriends saying here we go again
Am
Rich kid but he act like a gentleman
F
Last one didn't end like it should've been
G
Two dates and he still wanna get it in
Dm
And they're saying it's because of the Internet
Am
Try her once and it's on to the next chick
F                          G
X-O the O face on your exes right?
                       Dm
And we can do the same thing if you wanna have at it
                         Am
When your thoughts can't breathe and you thinking asthmatic
                   F
And you wanna be a mom and I wasn't mad at it
                       G
I was thinking 'bout me, I'd be really bad at it
                         Dm
Cause I'm thinking 'bout me, weeks in Dubai
          Am
Fourth of July, house in Kauai, yeah we can try
F              G
So let's try

( Dm  Am  F  G )
( Dm  Am  F  G )

Whoa
      Dm
I took off my nine to five
       Am                           F              G
But you still don't have the time to kiss me, just hit me
         Dm                           Am 
And if I left you all alone, would you still pick up the phone?
     F         G
It's iffy, you miss me
      Dm
I got furniture to move
         Am
And we'll both be thirty soon
F              F
In Oakland, in Oakland
        Dm                        Am
The only one I know is you, so the fuck I'm supposed to do?
F              G
In Oakland, in Oakland
