"CALIFORNIA DREAMING"

written by: John Phillips

all the leaves are brown and the sky is grey
I've been for a walk on a winter's day

I'd be safe and warm if I was in L.A
California Dreamin' on such a winter's day

stopped into a church I passed along the way
well, I got down on my knees and I pretend to pray

you know the preacher likes the cold
he knows I'm gonna stay
California Dreamin' on such a winter's day

all the leaves are brown and the sky is grey
I've been for a walk on a winter's day

if I didn't tell her I could leave today
California Dreamin' on such a winter's day
