Where I come from isn't all that great
My automobile is a piece of crap
My fashion sense is a little whack
And my friends are just as screwy as me

I didn't go to boarding schools
Preppy girls never looked at me
Why should they I ain't nobody
Got nothing in my pocket

Beverly Hills - That's where I want to be! (Gimme Gimme)
Living in Beverly Hills...
Beverly Hills - Rolling like a celebrity! (Gimme Gimme)
Living in Beverly Hills...

There has been a migration of people and companies from the somewhat dreadful suburbs on the east side (Redmond etc) to the west side (Seattle proper) combined with a large influx of professionals and engineers from SF, Boston, NYC, etc into downtown core and the surrounding suburbs. Neighborhoods have been completely remade in only a few years.
