"Orange County Girl" as written by Pharrell L Williams and Gwen Stefani....
Don't know what I'm doing back in the studio
Getting greedy 'cause he said he had another sick flow
So I had to holla back; guess I didn't get enough
Still be the one to land, and I send the tick-tock
If you give me a clap, I'm gonna give an encore
Don't want it to end; I wanna skank some more
I'm tripping on the best dream that I never had
I guess behind the orange curtain is not so bad

From the West Side of Anaheim, a small world after all
Hanging out at the hotel, selling makeup at the mall
Making out to "Purple Rain" just like everybody else
Dame un beso, now stop, I'm trying to save myself
In the ordinary calling girl way
Back in the seven-one-four days
Trying to figure what I wanna be
Hanging in the garage, me and ND

[Chorus:]
I'm just an Orange County girl
Living in an extraordinary world
I'm just an Orange County girl
Living in an extraordinary world
Sing
La la la la la la la la la
And the girls sing
La la la la la la la la la
And the guys sing
La la la la la la la la la
And the girls sing
La la la la la la la la la

A lot of things have changed, but I'm mostly the same
These are a few of my favorite things
Still rollin' 'cause the 'Sound Of Music'
Ain't nothing better than a great, big, huge hit
You know, I'd pay you just to let me run, dance, and sing
I know I'm living the E-ticket dream
For a girl from O.C., it's almost unheard of
So I wanna thank you all so much for the love (especially my girlfriends)

Pharrell on repeat, make a hurricane in Miami
Working with him, I'm gonna get myself another Grammy
I got the L.A.M.B., and he's rocking the Ice Creams
Blend it together, something fresh and kinda in between
Remember music is something that I love
So I don't really give a fuck
The music don't come in no color
It's time to move on hit you with the chorus

[Chorus]

And the dream goes...
On and on, and on, and on
On and on, and on, and on
And the dream goes...
On and on, and on, and on
On and on, and on, and on
And the dream goes...
On and on, and on, and on
On and on, and on, and on
And the dream goes...
On and on, and on, and on
On and on, and...
And the dream goes...

[Chorus]

    General CommentI agree with you hayles89. At first I wasn't into the CD so much. I was thinking 2 myself "God, Gwen has totally changed. What happened 2 the cute lil ska girl we all used to know and love?" But then I looked at these lyrics and my opinion really changed. This is just another way to express herself musically. She is still the same. The line that really got me was "Don't want it to end, I wanna skank some more" She doesn't want to give up her original style and this is just kinda of like experimenting. I know there will always be haters but Gwen hasn't drastically changed, so don't worry to much about it.

    General Commentthe first couple lines are about how she didnt mean to make another record. on the dvd she said she just wanted to make a dance record so she made lamb. she didnt want to tour for it but she wound up doing so.

    General CommentMy girl Gwen reppin' the 714. That is how we roll. I do like Gwen Stefani, but I really don't care for all the stale lyrics the new album has.

    General Commentthis song is about her musical experience through years of being in the music industry I guess? The beat is pretty kewl and it has a taste of hip hop in it which i like.
