"California Man" as written by and Roy Wood....
Goin' to a party,
Meet me on after school
Well we're goin to a place where the jive is really cool

And if the band stops a playin'
There's a jukebox down the hall
And with your blue dress on, your folks all gone
You're sure to give the guys a ball

Get that real guitar boy shakin',
I'm a california man,
Dance right on till the floors are breakin'
I'm a california man

Well I rocked my mamma so bad
This a woman's she's a making me mad
Well I don't care if her legs start aching,
I'm a california man

Oh my legs start to shiver when I hear you call my name
Well, my knees keep a knockin'
And my bow tie's bustin' out

When my feet start to fly,
An' my jeans slung way down low
You know I'm back on my heels and it's making me feel
Like the king of rock n' roll

Get that real guitar boy shakin'
I'm a california man,
Dance right on till the floors are breakin'
I'm a california man

Well I rocked my mamma so bad
This a woman's she's a making me mad
I don't care if her legs start aching,
I'm a california man

I'm a california man

Goin' to a party, meet me on after school
Well we're goin' to a place where the jive is really cool

And if the band stops a playin'
There's a jukebox down the hall
And with your blue dress on, your folks all gone
You're sure to give the guys a ball

Get that real guitar boy shakin'
I'm a california man,
Dance right on till the floors are breakin'
I'm a california man

Well I rocked my mamma so bad
This a woman's she's a making me mad
I don't care if her legs start aching,
I'm a california man
I'm a california man
I'm a california man

    General CommentWell the song just absolutely rocks. Its means he's a California man and he likes to rock. It was actually written by Roy Wood who I believe was in The Move and ELO, but this Cheap Trick version is great.
