Just like California was not even there
Since it's gone I'm so withdrawn
I ain't got no one nowhere

Right beside the ocean my darlin' Clementine
Well the water got high and she never got dry and
She was a water sign

CHORUS:
Time is on my bad side
Halfway there just wouldn't be fair
So I'm goin' all the way tonight
Halfway there just wouldn't be fair
So I'm goin' all the way tonight

Just like California to make a fool of me
Steal the sideshow, burn the disco
Slide into the sea

I'm a thinking person, and I think that it's wrong
To keep on saying true love's waiting
When true love is long gone

(repeat chorus)
