Left my wallet in El Segundo
Left my wallet in El Segundo

Left my wallet in El Segundo
I gotta get, I got-got ta get it
My mother went away for a month-long trip
She made a big mistake by leaving me home
Dialed Ali up to see what was going down
Took the Dodge Dart, a '74
Shaheed had me covered with a hundred greenbacks
Drove down the Belt, got on the Conduit
Had no destination, we was on a quest
Drove down the road for two-days-and-a-half
Just then a figure had caught my eye
I pulled over to ask were we was at
"El Segundo," he said, "my name is Pedro
Needed civilization, some sort of reservation
Thanks, senor, as I start up the motor


We got gas and went on to get grub
Anywhere would have been better
Ali had the fruit punch
I had a hunch
So I did it
She was a waitress there
To put me back into reality, here's Shaheed,
I checked for keys and started to step

Had my jimmy hats I got to get it man
Lord, have mercy
I fell bad but he makes me feel badder
Breaking on out, we was Northeast bound
Three days coming and three more going
490 Madison, we're here, Sha
Thinking about the past week, the last week
Hopped in the car and torpe'ed to the shack
"Why?" I said, "ee gotta go

Left my wallet in El Segundo
I gotta get, I got-got ta get it
Left my wallet in El Segundo
Left my wallet in El Segundo
