If everybody in the U.S.A
Could come with us to Californ-I-a
We could take 'em to a place out west
Where the good sun shines everyday
Now there's a touch o' Californ-I-a
In everyone who's ever been this way
And when your telephone begins to ring
And the operator comes on the line
California callin'
I'll be there right away
There's some beautiful women
Gonna find me one
To show me how to ride the ultimate wave
Now I've joined the surfin' nation and so
I'll take a permanent vacation and go
To the golden shores of 'Frisco Bay
I'll ride 'em all the way to Malibu
And I'll take ya' boogie boardin' with me
'Cause when we're surfin' it's so great to be free
And when you're on a California beach
You might even find 'em windsurfin' too
California callin'
I'll be there right away
There's some beautiful women
Gonna find me one
To show me how to ride the ultimate wave
In the fifties it was "Hey Daddy O"
Then came the surfers and the Hodads ya' know
We had our woodies and our custom cars
And when we drove around we knew we were bad
My baby listens to my car radio
And when we're cruisin' lets the whole world know
And when our favorite surfin' song comes on
We always let 'em know it's "Totally Rad!"
California callin'
I'll be there right away
There's some beautiful women
Gonna find me one
To show me how to ride the ultimate wave
California callin'
She's still on the line
There's a beautiful woman
Gonna show me how
To ride 'em at the county line
California callin'
I'll be there right away
There's some beautiful women
Gonna find me one
To show me how to ride the ultimate wave
