    Lyrics

    California, California
    You're such a wonder that I think I'll stay in bed
    Big time rollers, part time models
    So much to plunder that I think I'll sleep instead

    I don't know this sea of neon
    Thousand surfers, whiffs of freon
    And big nights back east with Rhoda
    California, please

    There's a moment I've been saving
    A kind of crucifix around this munchkin land
    Up north freezing, little me drooling
    'That's Entertainment's' on at eight
    Come on Ginger slam

    I don't know this sea of neon
    Thousand surfers, whiffs of freon
    And my new grandma Bea Arthur
    Come on ever

    Ain't it a shame that at the top
    Peanut butter and jam they served you
    Ain't it a shame that at the top
    Still those soft skin boys can bruise you
    Yes, I fell for a streaker

    I don't know this sea of neon
    Thousand surfers, whiffs of freon

    Ain't it a shame
    That all the world can't enjoy your mad traditions
    Ain't it a shame that all the world
    Don't got keys to their own ignitions
    Life is the longest death in California

    You're such a wonder that I think I'll stay in bed
    So much to plunder that I think I'll sleep instead
    You're such a wonder that I think I'll stay in bed
    So much to plunder that I think I'll sleep instead
