"Sweet Life" as written by Pharrell L Williams and Christopher Breaux....
The best song wasn't the single, but you weren't either
Livin' in Ladera Heights, the black Beverly Hills
Domesticated paradise, palm trees and pools
The water's blue, swallow the pill
Keepin' it surreal, whatever you like
Whatever feels good, whatever takes you mountain high
Keepin' it surreal, not sugar-free
My TV ain't HD, that's too real
Grapevine, mango, peaches, and limes, the sweet life

The sweet life, sweet life
Sweet life, sweet life
The sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet life
Sweet life, the sweet life
Sweetie pie

You've had a landscaper and a house keeper since you were born
The sunshine always kept you warm
So why see the world, when you got the beach
Don't know why see the world, when you got the beach
The sweet life

The best song wasn't the single, but you couldn't turn your radio down
Satellite need a receiver, can't seem to turn the signal fully off
Transmitting the waves
You're catching that breeze 'til you're dead in the grave

But you're keepin' it surreal, whatever you like
Whatever feels good, whatever takes you mountain high
Keepin' it surreal, not sugar-free, my tv ain't HD, that's too real
Grapevines, mango, peaches, and lime, a sweet life

A sweet life
A sweet life, yeah
A sweet life, a sweet life
A sweet life
Live and die in the life

You've had a landscaper and a house keeper since you were born, yeah
The sunshine always kept you warm
So why see the world, when you got the beach
Don't know why see the world, when you got the beach

And the water, is exactly what I wanted
It's everything I thought it would be (Thought it would be)
But this neighborhood is gettin' trippier every day
The neighborhood is goin' ape shit crazy

You've had a landscaper and a house keeper since you were born
The star shine always kept you warm
So why see the world, when you got the beach
Don't know why see the world, when you got the beach
The sweet life

    General CommentI don't think there's a particular meaning to this song. I think he's just painting a particular aspect of the SoCal life. That being said, I do play around with two interpretations.

    If there were a meaning, I'd say sometimes people are just complacent with where they are in life. I mean what about people in the world who have never really visited anywhere outside of where they live. Some stay because they arent capable of leaving, and some stay simply because they "found their beach."

    Or it could be a backhanded compliment. Yeah. "Why see the world when you've got the beach?" Why, when you have all this money, easily accessible means of transportation, no ties, what feels like unlimited money, and no responsibilities. Why? When you can live it up and party in SoCal and get super fucked up. You've got "the beach." The life everybody wants. The life people sing and make movies about. And guess what? It ain't like it seems. In reality, you Wake up on your Saturday earlier than expected with a raging headache and a Xanax to calm yourself.
