We came from Great Britain to L.A.
Where the groups from England play
Swing Auditorium, Hollywood Palladium, Civic Hall
She said she had a house up in the hills
Lived on orange juice and pills
California, sweet California, bless you all!
California tastes so good like coffee should
I can't put it down, but that's not all
If only they had soccer here, Watney's Beer
And the BBC, and the Albert Hall
I think, I might think of settling down
In this easygoing town
With a good woman, with a good woman just like you
I just wanna lay my head beside you
On the water bed, won't you lay me down
Help me to forget about tomorrow
And the early plane to another town
I came from Great Britain to L.A.
Must go back the other way
California, so long, California, I'll be back!
Yes, I'll be back!
