All the leaves are brown, and the sky is gray
I went for a walk on a winter’s day
I’d be safe and warm if I was in L.A.

Oh, California dreamin’
On such a winter’s day, hey

I went into a church, I stopped along the way
Well, I got down on my, on my, on my bended knees
And I began to pray, you know the preacher did succumb
He knows I’m going to stay, yes, he knows ‘cause I told him so

Oh, California dreamin’
On such a winter’s day, yeah

Well baby, all the leaves, the leaves
The leaves are brown and the sky is gray
Oh, I went for a walk on a winter’s day
I, I, I’d be safe and warm if I was, mira, if I was in L.A.

Mmm, yeah, California dreamin’
On such a winter’s day, yeah
On such a winter’s day, yeah
On such a winter’s day, eh-hey

Dream on, California dreamin’, dream on
Oye mira yo quiero gozar en California
Porque yo me siento tambien
Y por eso yo te quiero porque tu me tratas tambien en California

Mira, no sienta mal a nena no me tratas asi
Y yo me quiero morir muchachita
Por favor, por favor, nada mas
Oye no me digas que no porque yo
Oye mulatta mira, baby, eh California dreamin’

It doesn’t matter how you say it
All I want to say is I love, I love
California, baby yeah
I really love, I really love
I really need a little bit of lovin’, yeah

California dreamin’, oh yeah
Calfornia dreamin’, California dreamin’
