    Cool California Dreamin

    All the leaves are brown - All the leaves are brown
    And the sky is gray - And the sky is gray
    I've been for a walk - I've been for a walk
    On a winter's day - On a winter's day
    I'd be safe and warm - I'd be safe and warm
    If I was in L.A. - If I was in L.A.
    California dreaming - California dreaming
    On such a winter's day

    Stopped into a church
    I passed along the way
    Well, I got down on my knees - Got down on my knees
    And I pretend to pray - I pretend to pray
    You know the preacher likes the cold - Preacher likes the cold
    He knows I'm gonna stay - Knows I'm gonna stay
    California dreaming - California dreaming
    On such a winter's day

    All the leaves are brown - All the leaves are brown
    And the sky is gray - And the sky is gray
    I've been for a walk - I've been for a walk
    On a winter's day - On a winter's day
    If I didn't tell her - If I didn't tell her
    I could leave today - I could leave today
    California dreaming - California dreaming
    On such a winter's day - California dreaming
    On such a winter's day - California dreaming
    On such a winter's day

    We've been on the run
    Driving in the sun
    Looking out for #1
    California here we come
    Right back where we started from

    Hustlers grab your guns
    Your shadow weighs a ton
    Driving down the 101
    California here we come
    Right back where we started from

    California!
    Here we come!

    On the stereo
    Listen as we go
    Nothing's gonna stop me now
    California here we come
    Right back where we started from
    Pedal to the floor
    Thinkin' of the roar
    Gotta get us to the shore
    California here we come
    Right back where we started from

    California!
    Here we come!

    Please no more California Songs
    And Fuck New YOrk too

    Yeah your heaven is a lie
    Just more shit that I don't buy
    And they're heading for the coast
    they're moving out in droves
    Sending back reports on the radio
    with the messages the same
    It's gettin pretty lame
    California dreaming's on the radio

    And here we go again It's never gonna end
    We're all so sick of california Songs

    [1]-California...knows how to party
    California...knows how to party
    In the citaaay of L.A.
    In the citaaay of good ol' Watts
    In the citaaay, the city of Compton
    We keep it rockin! We keep it rockin!

    [Verse One: Dr. Dre]

    Now let me welcome everybody to the wild, wild west
    A state that's untouchable like Elliot Ness
    The track hits ya eardrum like a slug to ya chest
    Pack a vest for your Jimmy in the city of sex
    We in that sunshine state with a bomb ass hemp beat
    the state where ya never find a dance floor empty
    And pimps be on a mission for them greens
    lean mean money-makin-machines servin fiends
    I been in the game for ten years makin rap tunes
    ever since honeys was wearin sassoon
    Now it's '95 and they clock me and watch me
    Diamonds shinin lookin like I robbed Liberace
    It's all good, from Diego to tha Bay
    Your city is tha bomb if your city makin pay
    Throw up a finger if ya feel the same way
    Dre puttin it down for
    Californ-i-a
    [repeat 1]

    [2]-Shake it shake it baby
    Shake it shake it baby
    Shake it shake it mama
    Shake it Cali
    Shake it shake it baby
    Shake it shake it shake it shake it...

    [Verse Two: 2Pac]

    Out on bail fresh outta jail, California dreamin
    Soon as I stepped on the scene, I'm hearin hoochies screamin
    Fiendin for money and alcohol
    the life of a west side playa where cowards die and its all ball
    Only in Cali where we riot not rally to live and die
    In L.A. we wearin Chucks not Ballies (that's right)
    Dressed in Locs and khaki suits and ride is what we do
    Flossin but have caution we collide with other crews
    Famous cause we program worldwide
    Let'em recognize from Long Beach to Rosecrans
    Bumpin and grindin like a slow jam, it's west side
    So you know the row won't bow down to no man
    Say what you say
    But give me that bomb beat from Dre
    Let me serenade the streets of L.A.
    From Oakland to Sacktown
    The Bay Area and back down
    Cali is where they put they mack down
    Give me love!
    [rpt 1]

    [dre] now make it shake...

    [rpt 2]

    We went to the Philly Pizza Company
    And ordered some hot tea
    The waitress said well no, we only have it iced
    So we jumped up on the table and shouted anarchy
    And someone played a Beach Boys song on the jukebox
    It it was "California Dreamin"
    So we started screamin
    On such a winter's day

    She took me to her parents for a Sunday meal
    Her father took one look at me and he began to squeal

    Punk rock girl
    It makes no sense
    Punk rock girl

    We went to a shopping mall
    And laughed at all the shoppers
    And security guards trailed us to a record shop
    We asked for Mojo Nixon
    They said he don't work here
    We said if you don't got Mojo Nixon then your store could use some fixin

    We got into her car away we started rollin
    I said how much you pay for this
    Said nothin man it's stolen

    Punk rock girl
    You look so wild
    Punk rock girl

    I wanna watch it go right in and down.
    I wanna watch it go right in.
    Watch you flush it all away.

    Time to bring it down again.
    Don't just call me pessimist.
    Try and read between the lines.

    I can't imagine why you wouldn't
    Welcome any change, my friend.

    I wanna see it all come down.
    suck it down.
    flush it down.

    Gettin' born in the state of Mississippi
    Poppa was a copper and'a momma was a hippie
    In Alabama she was swinging hammer
    Price you gotta pay when you break the panorama
    She never knew that there was anything more than poor
    What in the world does your company take me for?


    Black bandana, sweet Louisiana
    Robbin'on a bank in the state of Indiana
    She's a runner, rebel and a stunner
    On her merry way saying baby what you gonna
    Lookin' down the barrel of a hot metal .45
    Just another way to survive

    Chorus:

    California rest in peace
    Simultaneous release
    California show your teeth
    She's my priestess, I'm your priest
    Yeah, yeah


    She's a lover, baby and a fighter
    Should've seen her coming when it got a little brighter
    With a name like Dani California
    Day was gonna come when I was gonna mourn ya
    A little loaded she was stealing another breath
    I love my baby to death

    Chorus:

    California rest in peace

    She's my priestess, I'm your priest

    Hi, my name is Stereo Mike.
    Yeah, we got three tickets to the Bran Van concert
    happening this Monday night at the Pacific Pallisades.
    You can all dial in if you want to answer
    a couple of questions, namely,
    what is Todd's favourite cheese.
    Jackie just called up and said it was a form of Roquefort.
    We'll see about that...
    Give us a ring-ding-ding! It's a beautiful day.
    Yeah Todd, this is Liquid ring-a-ding-a-dinging,
    want those three Bran Van tickets man. Waddya think?
    Todd, you there?
    I woke up again this morning with the sun in my eyes,
    When Mike came over with a script surprise.
    A Mafioso story with a twist,
    A "Too Wong Foo, Julie Newmar" hitch,
    Get your ass out of bed, he said:
    I'll explain it on the way.
    But we did nothing, absolutely nothing that day, and I say:
    What the hell am I doing drinking in L.A. at 26?
    I got the fever for the flavour, the payback will be later, still I need a fix.
    And the girls on the bus kept on laughing at us,
    As we rode on the ten down to Venice again.
    Flaring out the G-Funk,
    Sipping on a juice and gin,
    Just me and a friend.
    Feeling kinda groovy,
    Working on a movie. (Yeah right!)
    But we did nothing, absolutely but kiss that day, and I say:
    What the hell am I doing drinking in L.A. at 26?
    With my mind on my money and my money on my... Beer, beer!
    I know that life is for the taking, so I better wise up, and take it quick.
    Yeah, one more time at Trader Vic's.
    Some men there wanted to hurt us,
    And other men said we weren't worth the fuss.
    We could see them all bitching by the bar,
    About the fine line, between the rich and the poor.
    Then Mike turned to me and said:
    "What do you think we got done son?"
    We've got a conclusion, and I guess that's something, so I ask you:
    What the hell am I doing drinking in L.A. at 26?
    I got the fever for the nectar, the payback will be later, still I need a fix.
    We need to fix you up, call me Monday and maybe we'll fix it all up.
    Hell-A-L.A., Hell hell-A-L.A.! ...
    So I ask you:
    What the hell am I doing drinking in L.A. at 26?
    Hell-A-L.A., Hell hell-A-L.A.

    Got on board a westbound 747
    Didn't think before deciding what to do
    Ooh, that talk of opportunities
    TV breaks and movies
    Rang true
    Sure rang true

    Seems it never rains in southern California
    Seems I've often heard that kind of talk before
    It never rains in California
    But girl don't they warn ya
    It pours, man it pours

    Out of work, I'm out of my head
    Out of self respect, I'm out of bread
    I'm underloved, I'm underfed, I wanna go home
    It never rains in California
    But girl don't they warn ya
    It pours, man it pours


    Seems it never rains in southern California
    Seems I've often heard that kind of talk before
    It never rains in California
    But girl don't they warn ya
    It pours, man it pours

    Will you tell the folks back home I nearly made it
    Had offers but didn't know which one to take
    Please don't tell 'em how you found me
    Don't tell 'em how you found me
    Gimme a break, give me a break

    Seems it never rains in southern California

    I'd like to rest my heavy head tonight
    On a bed of California stars
    I'd like to lay my weary bones tonight
    On a bed of California stars

    I'd love to feel
    Your hand touching mine
    And tell me why
    I must keep working on

    Jump up from my starbed
    Make another day
    Underneath my California stars
    They hang like grapes
    On vines that shine
    And warm the lovers' glass
    Like friendly wine

    So I'd give this world
    Just to dream a dream with you

    Spent my days with a woman unkind,
    Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine.
    Made up my mind to make a new start,
    Going To California with an aching in my heart.
    Someone told me there's a girl out there
    with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.
    Took my chances on a big jet plane,
    never let them tell you that they're all the same.
    The sea was red and the sky was grey,
    wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
    The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
    as the children of the sun began to awake.

    Seems that the wrath of the Gods
    Got a punch on the nose and it started to flow;
    I think I might be sinking.
    Throw me a line if I reach it in time
    I'll meet you up there where the path
    Runs straight and high.

    To find a queen without a king,
    They say she plays guitar and cries and sings... la la la
    Ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn
    Tryin' to find a woman who's never, never, never been born.
    Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
    Telling myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems.

    Sitting in a park in paris, france
    Reading the news and it sure looks bad
    They wont give peace a chance
    That was just a dream some of us had
    Still a lot of lands to see
    But I wouldnt want to stay here
    Its too old and cold and settled in its ways here
    Oh, but california
    California Im coming home
    Im going to see the folks I dig
    Ill even kiss a sunset pig
    California Im coming home

    I met a redneck on a grecian isle
    Who did the goat dance very well
    He gave me back my smile
    But he kept my camera to sell
    Oh the rogue, the red red rogue
    He cooked good omelettes and stews
    And I might have stayed on with him there
    But my heart cried out for you, california
    Oh california Im coming home
    Oh make me feel good rockn roll band
    Im your biggest fan
    California, Im coming home

    Oh it gets so lonely
    When youre walking
    And the streets are full of strangers
    All the news of home you read
    Just gives you the blues
    Just gives you the blues

    So I bought me a ticket
    I caught a plane to spain
    Went to a party down a red dirt road
    There were lots of pretty people there
    Reading rolling stone, reading vogue
    They said, how long can you hang around?
    I said a week, maybe two,
    Just until my skin turns brown
    Then Im going home to california
    California Im coming home
    Oh will you take me as I am
    Strung out on another man
    California Im coming home

    Oh it gets so lonely
    When youre walking
    And the streets are full of strangers
    All the news of home you read
    More about the war
    And the bloody changes
    Oh will you take me as l am?
    Will you take me as l am?
    Will you?

    Well she followed him from Phoenix out to Californ
    And then she passed out on the bed
    And all the little things he never even asked her for
    She simply smiled and shook her head

    Why can't we smile just like we used to
    Why don't you figure anymore
    Why has my sympathy now turned to malice
    It doesn't matter anymore

    And now I realize I'm livin' like a trucker does
    Although I haven't got the belly
    And though she followed me from California all the way
    I only wanna watch the tele

    Why can't we smile just like we used to
    Why don't you figure anymore
    Why has my sympathy now turned to malice
    It doesn't matter anymore

    He asked please stop quotin' Rodney King when in your postcards
    Can't understand it anymore
    And if your gonna read your poetry aloud to me
    I'll have to show you to the door

    Why can't we smile just like we used to
    Why don't you figure anymore
    Why has my sympathy now turned to malice
    It doesn't matter anymore

    I tried once to be civil
    But I just got put on hold
    I'm sick of hearing complaints
    The espresso is too cold
    You act like you're a friend
    But then you talk 'bout how we suck
    Just save it for your dildo
    That's the only thing you'll fuck

    [Chorus]

    If I was smart I'd run fast
    Out of this town
    Sometimes I want to shout and scream
    Fuck L.A.

    Traded your Doc Martens
    In exchange for cowboy boots
    You're asking who's Keith Morris
    Yeah you're punk rock
    Where's your roots
    You're a rocker you're a biker
    You're punk rock now you skate
    Last year it was Zeppelin
    Now it's Bad Brains
    You're a fake

    [Chorus]
    [Chorus]

    Fuck L.A.
    Fuck L.A.
    Fuck L.A.
    Fuck it

    Some say the end is near.
    Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
    I certainly hope we will.
    I sure could use a vacation from this

    Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
    Freaks

    Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA
    The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
    Any fucking time. Any fucking day.
    Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

    Fret for your figure and
    Fret for your latte and
    Fret for your lawsuit and
    Fret for your hairpiece and
    Fret for your prozac and
    Fret for your pilot and
    Fret for your contract and
    Fret for your car.

    It's a
    Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
    Freaks

    Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA

    Some say a comet will fall from the sky.
    Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
    Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still.
    Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipshits.

    Some say the end is near.
    Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
    I certainly hope we will cuz
    I sure could use a vacation from this

    Stupid shit, silly shit, stupid shit...

    One great big festering neon distraction,
    I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied.

    Learn to swim.
    Learn to swim.
    Learn to swim.

    Mom is going to fix it all soon,
    Mom is coming round to put it back
    the way it oughtta be...

    Learn to swim.

    Fuck L Ron Hubbard and
    Fuck all his clones.
    Fuck all these gun-toting
    Hip gangster wannabes.

    Learn to swim.

    Fuck retro anything.
    Fuck your tattoos.
    Fuck all you junkies and
    Fuck your short memory.

    Learn to swim.

    Fuck smiley glad-hands
    With hidden agendas.
    Fuck these dysfunctional,
    Insecure actresses.

    Learn to swim.

    Cuz I'm praying for rain
    And I'm praying for tidal waves
    I wanna see the ground give way.
    I wanna watch it all go down.
    Mom please flush it all away.
    I wanna see it go right in and down.
    I wanna watch it go right in.
    Watch you flush it all away.

    Time to bring it down again.
    Don't just call me pessimist.
    Try and read between the lines.

    I can't imagine why you wouldn't
    Welcome any change, my friend.

    I wanna see it all come down.
    suck it down.
    flush it down.

    well you were standing in the door
    while I wondered what you were waiting for
    I saw the wild strawberries on the vine
    out of control

    I was trying to think of something clever
    while you were saying nothing whatsoever
    I saw the berries throw their hooks into the soil
    felt the blood between us churning thick as motor oil

    we'd come from california
    the air around you was familiar to me now
    and you were gazing westward
    I was looking at you again
    yeah

    Took a walk to the corner store
    Just to buy a loaf of bread and a box of s`mores
    Up pulled a guy in a yellow van
    Shiny gold badge flashing in his hand

    He said, alright all you mojados down here
    I want you all to hit the floor
    I got one thing to ask you and nothing more
    So answer in English, if you can
    Where were ya born, man

    Huh? Where was I born?

    That`s right, I said
    Where were ya born?

    Hey, are you one of those dudes who do horoscopes, man
    Hey, I`m a Cancer with a bad moon rising

    Look here el fago, watch my lips
    Where were ya born?

    I was BORN IN EAST L.A.
    Man, I was BORN IN EAST L.A.

    Oh yeah, you were BORN IN EAST L.A.
    Let`s see your green card

    Huh? Green card?
    I`m from East LA

    Alright, then who`s President of the United States

    Oh, that`s easy, man
    That guy that used to be on Death Valley Days, John Wayne

    Alright, let`s go, come on

    Next thing I know, I`m in a foreign land
    People talkin so fast, I couldn`t understand
    There was nobody there to lend a helping hand
    I was cold, it was dark where is a burger stand

    I want to go back to East LA
    I wish I was back in East LA
    I don`t belong here in downtown T.J.
    Cause I was born in East LA, ole

    I crawled under barbed wire, swam across a stream
    Rode in six different trucks packed like a sardine
    Walked all day in the burning sun
    Now I know what it`s like to be born to run

    Up ahead was the promised land
    Shining like a star just beyond my hand
    All I could see was a golden door
    I looked up, a sign said five billion sold

    And I was back in East LA
    Yes, I was back in East LA
    You know I`m never gonna stray
    Cause I was born in East LA, oh LA

    EAST LA!!!

    California is becoming a nightmare if the Metropolitan Transit Authority does raise bus and subway faires tomorrow. Another blow to the poor and working class of southern California.
