Take me to the river
Where the streets are made of gold
And the women are the ones your mother warned you, Amazons
Take me where your dreams come true and heaven's never spent
Money's in your pocket, you forgot to pay the rent
In California

Take me down the river
And hold me in your arms
Tell me that policemen don't mean anybody harm
Take me where your dreams come true, just think 'em hard enough
And I'll be onto you when we can push that button low

In California
In California
In California
In California

In California, you get everything you want and more than that
In California
In California, you get everything you need, imagine that
In California
In California, you can be anyone you wanna be
In California
In California, you can hear and see a gold and silver screen
In California

Take me to the river
Where the money trees are green
And everyone's so happy, it's so beautiful indeed
When we're at the river
Will you love me just the same?
When the cost of freedom's higher than the price of fame

In California
In California
In California
In California

In California, you get everything you want and more than that
In California
In California, you get everything you need, imagine that
In California
In California, you can be anyone you wanna be
In California
In California, you can hear and see a gold and silver screen
In California

In California
In California

In California, you get everything you want and more than that
In California
In California, you get everything you need, imagine that
In California
In California, you can be anyone you wanna be
In California
In California, you can hear and see a gold and silver screen
In California

In California
In California
In California
In California
In California
