She got the long blond hair
Got the red sports car
And you know she's got the
Top laid back
Se got the movie star smile
Got the sun kissed tan
Santa Barbara in summer
Yeah, she feels like that

Hey she's like a canyon drive
In a midnight sky
Those yese are deep enough
To get lost
Her legs are palm tree tall
The way she walks
Like the heat on a runway
When the cameras go off

She's small town from the country
She ain't big time but she could be

(Chorus)
Hey, Hollywood never looked this good
Bright as the big screen burns
Hey, I bet drivin' down sunset
They're lookin' for a face like hers
Yeah, I've been all around this world
And she'd be California
If California was a girl

She's like a red, red wine
Like a righteous wave
She's a day at the beach in corona del mar
She's never been out there
Felt the bright spot light
But she could have her own star
On that dreamer's boulevard

I've driven down that coastline
And I've stood there under that big sign

Hey, Hollywood never looked this good
Bright as the big screen burns
Hey, I bet drivin' down sunset
They're lookin' for a face like hers
Yeah, I've been all around this world
And she'd be california
If california was a girl

I'd chase that wild sunset
I'd be gone on my way,
Way out west
Yeah, I've been all around this town

Hey, Hollywood never looked this good
Bright as the big screen
Hey, I bet drivin' down sunset
Lookin' for a face like hers
Yeah, she'd be California
If California was a girl
Now she'd be California
Hey California

She got the long blonde hair
Got the red sports car
And you know she's got the
Top laid back
Se got the movie star smile
Got the sun kissed tan
Santa Barbara in summer
Yeah, she feels like that

Yeah, she'd be California
Hey, Hollywood
