lyrics

CALIFORNIA
(Zurkowski/McDonald)

Never saw a girl so fine with your sunshine eyes
Your mountains and your valleys and your ocean and you’re eight miles high
California
Without your love there'd be no today
Fame has formed you
Your golden gate holds me in its sway

Movie stars, mansions, surfboards and swimming pools
Saw you in your polka-dot bikini, I became your fool
California
Without your love there'd be no today
Men may warn you
No earthquake never gonna come and take you away

California
Know you’re there this morning
Sleeping in your suntan scent
I won't bore you
My beach umbrella wanna open up and pay no rent
To the stars and skies above you

Three thousand miles across the blacktop trail
Thirsty in the desert, baby bring my water pail
Here I come
Just like the old song used to say
My last run
I ain't never gonna go away

Now I'm in California, I can't think what to do
That's okay ‘cause California she can't think too
California
The music in your canyons deep inside my heart
I adore you
My Hollywood dreams always gonna want a brand new start
So keep on California-ing me

Never saw a girl so fine with your sunshine eyes
Your mountains and your valleys and you’re eight miles high
Without your love there'd be no today
California
I ain't never gonna go away
