See I got a little bit of a problem
back where I come from,
feels like five people in my population
and no one ever leaves there
I’m gonna be the first one
’cause my papa always told me they way it was,
and my mama think she knows me, I know she doesn’t
(ah ah ah)

But I got my head set on California
I’ll fly away tomorrow, won’t even warn ya
and I’ll send a big postcard, just to piss you off
I got my head set on California, here I come

See, I got what you would call an obsession
it feels like I think sane
the limits of a small town
frustrating my brain,
might leave some roots there,
but my head’s on the next plane
’cause my daddy always told me they way it was,
and my mama think she knows me, I know she doesn’t
(ah ah ah)

I've got my head set on California
I’ll fly away tomorrow, won’t even warn ya
and I’ll send a big postcard, just to piss you off
I got my head set on California, here I come

Here I come..

Papa always tells me the way it was,
and my mama think she knows me, I know she doesn’t

I've got my head set on New York City
I’ll fly away tomorrow, won’t even miss me
and I’ll get a big boyfriend, just to piss you off

I've got my head set on California
I’ll fly away tomorrow, won’t even warn ya
and I’ll send a big postcard, just to piss you off
I got my head set on California, here I come

Here I come, here I come...

    General CommentThis song's so catchy, okay, it's ridiculously poppy, but it's fun. I guess it's about how Avril's determined to get out of Napanee or wherever, and go to some big city or place like New York or California. :)

    General CommentIt's from before 'Let Go' where she recorded some demos for a cd, and this is one of them. They're out there on the internet somewhere. :)

    General CommentI totally *heart* this song! I think it's one of her best B-sides!

    It's about leaving her home to become famous, following her dreams, and becoming independent.
