[Verse I]
      Em
I was making Japanese
          Bm
And she's watching DVDs
   G           A
In Oakland, in Oakland
        Em
Now I'm driving up the 5
        Bm
And she waits till I arrive
   G           A
In Oakland, in Oakland
Em
 Everything, that I wanted
Bm
 Only gotta drive for the moment
G
 If you tell me "turn around," then I'm on it
A
 For the moment, but you know me
Em
 You know how I get when I'm lonely
Bm
 And I think about you and the moments
G                                   A
 But everything you do is so Oakland, so Oakland

[Hook]
     Em
Foot on the gas
         Bm
I'm just trying to pass
        G
All the red lights
         A
And the stop signs
    Em
I'm ready to go
         Bm
Before I get to The Bay babe, that's a problem
G
 Because I'm way too scared to call
        A
And you might get me to stay, and oh
[Verse II]
        Em
I don't really mind the drive
      Bm
But I think I'd rather die
   G           F#m
In Oakland, in Oakland
        Em
With my hands on two and ten
     Bm
So I guess it all depends
   G           F#m
On Oakland, on Oakland
        Em
And I'm nervous, truth be told
        Bm
I never saw me growing old
   G           F#m
In Oakland, in Oakland
         Em
And if I married you tonight
         Bm
It would probably start a riot
   G           F#m
In Oakland, in Oakland

[Verse III]
Em
 Everything, that I needed
Bm
 Now that I got you in your feelings
G
 Everything you won't say, you tweet it
A                                    Em
 And a nigga don’t like that shit at all

So treated
Bm
 Can we just roll with the feeling?
G
 Can we just roll for a minute?
A
 Wait a minute

[Hook]
     Em
Foot on the gas
         Bm
I'm just trying to pass
        G
All the red lights
         A
And the stop signs
    Em
I'm ready to go
        Bm
But I'm really not ready, girl

That's a problem
G
 Cause I'm way too scared to fall
      A
And I know you choose to stay, and oh

[Verse IV]
Em
 All the girlfriends saying "here we go again"
Bm
 Rich kid but he act like a gentleman
G
 Last one didn't end like it should've been
F#m
 Two dates and he still wanna get it in
Em
 And they're saying it's because of the Internet
Bm
 Try her once and it's on to the next chick
G                             F#m
 X-O the O face on your exes...right?
                       Em
And we can do the same thing if you wanna have at it
                         Bm
When your thoughts can't breathe and you thinking asthmatic
                   G
And you wanna be a mom and I wasn't mad at it
                     F#m
I was thinking 'bout me, I'd be really bad at it
                         Em
Cause I'm thinking 'bout me, weeks in Dubai
            Bm                              G
Fourth of July, house in Kauai, yeah we can try
         F#m
So let's try

[Verse V]
       Em
I took off my nine to five
         Bm                          G             F#m
But you still don't have the time to kiss me, just hit me
         Em                             Bm
And if I left you all alone, would you still pick up the phone?
     G              F#m
It's iffy, you miss me
    Em                             Bm
I got furniture to move, and we'll both be thirty soon
   G           F#m
In Oakland, in Oakland
         Em                        Bm
The only one I know is you, so the fuck I'm supposed to do?
   G           F#m
In Oakland, in Oakland
