lyrics

i took the freeway
to where i like to play
on the other side of town
they got some pretty little spicy things
you know they never let me down
sippin' on corazón and i'm in the zone
you know i never felt so good
she sangin' hey lover if you wanna dance
then make your way over to my hood oh

chorus--
east la, andale'! i'm on my way
to the other side of town
i wanna dance with you chica
cause you know how to shake it down, oh!

tejano mama oh you makin' me wanna
try something that i never tried
she said, i wanna take you to a special place
and hopped up on my electra glide
she talkin',
you got some cheddar
that could make it even better
i'll show you things that you won't forget
i said, tell me your name one more time
she said,
they call me little red corvette, oohhh!!

east la, andale'! i'm on my way
to the other side of town
i wanna dance with you chica
cause you know how to shake it down, oh!

she shimmy shimmy and
she shake shake shake
until i just couldn't take no more
news flash!
they found your boy
he was laying half dead
still on that dancing floor, ooh!

east la, andale'! i'm on my way
to the other side of town
i wanna dance with you chica
cause you know how to shake it down, oh!

east la, andale'! i'm on my way
to the other side of town
i wanna dance with you chica
cause you know how to shake it down, oh!
