Blackboard Jungle – California lyrics

I was just a fresh young thing
Fresh from underneath my mother's wing
Heard you were where the angels roam
Caught a tear in my dad's eye when I left home

Put my faith in a girl from a topless bar
On a clear night we lay and stare at the stars
There's so much about you that I hate
Got your hands around my throat so I gotta stay

I was just a fresh young thing
When I waved goodbye to everything
Sure was great so glad to know ya
Lost myself in California

My sails filled with the hot air you breathe
Just another number in your black seas
Collect call home I'm comin' up for air
Will I ever find my way back home from here

One day I'll wrestle you to the ground
Laugh in your face try and touch me now
Tell them I'm just blowin' in your wind
That's where all the answers were to have been

I was just a fresh young thing
When I waved goodbye to everything
Sure was great so glad to know ya
Lost myself in California

California
California, Claifornia, California
California

I was just a fresh young thing
When I waved goodbye to everything
Sure was great so glad to know ya
Lost myself in California
