where I come from isn\'t all that great
my automobile is a piece of crap
my fashion sense is a little wack
and my friends are just as screwy as me
I didn\'t go to boarding schools
preppie girls never looked at me
why should they?
I ain\'t nobody
got nothin\' in my pocket

beverly hills
that\'s where I wanna be
(gimme gimme, gimme gimme)
living in beverly hills
beverly hills
rollin\' like a celebrity
(gimme gimme, gimme gimme)
living in beverly hills

look at all those movie stars
they\'re all so beautiful and clean
when their housemaids scrub the floors
they get the spaces in between
I wanna live a life like that
I wanna be just like a king
take my picture by the pool
cuz I\'m the next big thing

beverly hills
that\'s where I wanna be
(gimme gimme, gimme gimme)
living in beverly hills
beverly hills
rollin\' like a celebrity
(gimme gimme, gimme gimme)
living in beverly hills

the truth is I don\'t stand a chance
it\'s somethin\' that you\'re born into
and I just dont belong
no I don\'t
I\'m just a no class beat down fool
and I will always be that way
I might as well enjoy my life
and watch the stars play

beverly hills
that\'s where I wanna be
(gimme gimme, gimme gimme)
living in beverly hills
beverly hills
rollin\' like a celebrity
(gimme gimme, gimme gimme)
living in beverly hills

    General Commentim a huge weezer fan and i don't know what people would like about this song. its definitely the weakest song i've heard by them. what was rivers thinking when he wrote this? it reminds me of good charolette's "lifestyles of the rich and famous". i am so disappointed by this...

    General CommentIt's just very boring.

    Weezer's problem is that they can't live up to the precedent they set for themselves. I'm hoping the rest of the album is an upgrade from this single.

    General Commentthis song is great.

    i think it's about not fitting in and feeling out of place. thats probably how rivers always feels.

    General CommentOh for God's sake people, it's NOT that bad, and definitely NOT the worst. Ever hear Love Explosion? No wonder Rivers called his fans 'little bitches.' A lot of them are! I actually like this song... it has grown on me. And I've been a weezer fan since 1994, and the song is decent, though definitely not Blue or Pinkerton quality. It's just the commercially acceptable single that Geffen made them put on the cd. The rest of the cd is supposed to be different, and I'm hoping it's really good. This song is just very tongue-in-cheek.

    General CommentEveryone takes Weezer so seriously. Weezer is just roller rink music, they always have been and they will be, but it's still fun to listen too.

    General CommentBeverly Hills is a song about not forgetting where you come from. Even though Rivers is famous now (living in Beverly Hills), he knows he wasn't always rich. This song is saying Rivers knows who's a real friend and who's a "preppy girl" that never looked at him because his "pockets were empty". Get it? When he says he doesn't belong in Beverly Hills (no class, beat-down fool), he's being sarcastic. Insulting himself when he's actually insulting the self-absorbed people in BH. To conclude: the opposite of a sellout song, a song about staying real no matter how much fame you have.

    General CommentGreat single for their first release from their next album. Sure its very pop music but it is very catchy and I bet you are gonna see a lot of people jump on the weezer bandwagon. I look forward to this album and catching them on tour in may.
