"The Galleria" as written by and Alexander Greenwald....
I'm gonna miss the Galleria.
It was the only place to go this side of town.
Goodbye to the Galleria.
I just heard today they're going to tear it down.
And without the Galleria.
Where would all the valley girls go to hang out?

Well, it's been around since 1981.
And since then that's where we went to have fun.
Well, we all took the mall for granted.
And they could not pay the bills.
And the day it's not there when I drive by.
Well, that's the day the 80's died.

I'm gonna miss the Galleria.
It was the only place to go this side of town.
Goodbye to the Galleria.
I just heard today they're going to tear it down.
And without the Galleria.
Where would all the valley girls go to hang out?

Well, business had been slipping more and more.
Since the Northridge quake of 1994.
It's the place where they filmed Valley Girl.
And Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
And the day it's not there when I drive by.
Well, that's the day the 80's died.

I'm gonna miss the Galleria.
It was the only place to go this side of town.
Goodbye to the Galleria.
I just heard today they're going to tear it down.
And without the Galleria.
Where would all the valley girls go to hang out?
Where would all the valley girls go to hang out?
