"Cali, Cry" as written by James Robert Robertson and Kevin Rosaire Bellemare....
These crazy times
Up on my mind
We gotta change
Maintain
Hey, Mr. President
Could you pay my rent
Good God, just look at us
What the fuck

Excuse me, Sir
Could I have a word
Do you think she’s nice
200 dollars for the night
We’re trying to get by
And keep our dreams alive
One day it’ll all make sense
And we won’t have to live like this

But we gotta believe in who we are
And we gotta believe in shiny cars
And we gotta believe in superstars, planet mars, blah, blah, blah

Chorus:
California, California, California, cry for me (4x)

Don’t mind what I do
Cause it ain’t about you
Got bills to pay
Gonna do my thing
Hey mister, need a bag?
Don’t look so sad
One day it’ll all make sense
And we won’t have to live like this

But we gotta believe in who we are
And we gotta believe in shiny cars
And we gotta believe in superstars, planet mars, blah, blah, blah

Chorus:
California, California, California, cry for me (4x)

One day you’re gonna wake up and you’re gonna see the sunshine all on me (3X)
One day you’re gonna wake up, you’re gonna wake, you’re gonna wake up and see

California, California, California, cry for me (4x)
We’re riding bicycles down Queen St.
With 6 string guitars strapped on in the 8 o’clock heat
We do what we gotta do to get by
We live our lives and never have to compromise
