Beach Boys – California lyrics

On my way to sunny California

On my way to spend another sunny day

Water, water get yourself in the cool, clear, water

The sun shines brightly down on Penny's place

The sun shines brightly down on the bay

The air's so clean it'll just take your mind away

Take your mind away

Take your mind away

Have you ever been south of Monterey

Barrancas carve the coast line and the chaparral flows to the sea

'Neath waves of golden sunshine

And have you ever been north of Morro Bay

The south coast plows the sea

And the people there are of the breed

They don't need electricity

Water, water, cool cascades of clear, clear water

The sun dance final scene sets the hills ablaze.

Horizon edges quick up the mountain's way.

Have you ever been down Salinas way?

Where Steinbeck found the valley

And he wrote about it the way it was in his travelin's with Charley

And have you ever walked down through the sycamores

Where the farmhouse used to be

There the monarch's autumn journey ends

On a windswept cyprus tree

Water getwater get yourself in that

Get yourself in that get yourself in that cool, clear, water

The sun shines brightly down on Penny's place

Get yourself in that water

The air's so clean that it just takes your mind away

Take your mind away

Take your mind away

Have you ever been to a festival, the Big Sur congregation?

Where Country Joe will do his show

And he'd sing about liberty

And the people there in the open air, one big family.

Yeah the people there love to sing and share

Their new found liberty
