"The Beast In Me" as written by and Nick Lowe....
Every single time I come to this town
It brings out the worst in me
Decadence dries deep in the root of mine eyes
To bring out a thirst in me

Bust in to Burbank and buy a big beef jerky on Barham
Stare into the stockyard
Life in this car out on the road can be so easy

Then in the evenin' time, there's a welcome sight
In my lazy dreams
I'm still hopin', still hopin', still hopin' to find

The best in me is the beast in me
The best in me is the beast in me
The best in me is the beast in me
The best in me is the beast in me

Hansel and Gretel turnin' tricks for the big bad wolf on Sunset
In front of the health food store
See 'em linin' up in their Range Rovers and their Mercedes
For some peek a boo with the queen of hearts

And as the sun goes down in that purple sky
What passes for stars comes out
I'm still hopin', still hopin', still hopin' to find

The beast in me is the best in me
The beast in me is the best in me
The beast in me is the best in me
The beast in me is the best in me

The beast in me is the best in me
The beast in me is the best in me
The beast in me is the best in me
The beast in me is the best in me

I dreamed I saw Jesus on the sidewalk
Of Sodom burnin' sage he told me
"LA you're my desert rose, forgive me your age
I've done with my twenties but there's a reason to live
Swear I found it in the picks and pans of People magazine"

The best in me is the beast in me
The best in me is the beast in me
The best in me is the beast in me
The best in me is the beast in me

The best in me is the beast in me
The best in me is the beast in me
The best in me is the beast in me
The best in me is the beast in me

I made good my escape in my Geo Prism
The little red rental that could
I was prayin' no more hair would grow on my palms
As I drove away from the sign, it said
"Welcome to Hollywood"

Oh, it's the beast in me comin' on through
It's the best in me shinin' on through
Mama had told me, watch out for the beast in me
But mama, mama it's okay
Yeah, the beast in me, oh, it's the best in me
Oh, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

The beast in me is the best in me
The beast in me is the best in me
The beast in me is the best in me
...
