I made a trip to California just last week
To get those cats to lay some sounds on me
There on the corner of a parking lot
Was six kids playin' dirty rock.

It was the California Uptight Band
A way out hippy was the guitar man
I asked him to pick a little Wildwood Flower
He looked at me kinda sour.

He said what's wild about a wood flower man
I told him maybe you don't understand
I hummed him a little till he found the beat
He nearly picked me off my feet.

I stayed and I taught him a tune or two
A little Earl's Breakdown and some Mountain Dew
And now this group has got a brand new style
They're drivin' California wild.

Now it's a brand new California Uptight Band
Now they're the leaders of the west coast plan
A little education from the country side
They're takin' California for a ride.

I wouldn't put you on cause it ain't no gag
The Uptight Band has got a brand new bag
If you see the California Uptight Band
Tell them you're a wood flower man.

Now it's a brand new California Uptight Band
Playin' a song about a wood flower man
Now it's a brand new California Uptight Band
Playin' a song about a wood flower man.

A brand new California Uptight Band
Playin' a song about a wood flower man...
