(my country 'tis of thee
sweet land of liberty
of thee i sing)

california rhythm
i haven't been there for years
it takes american man too long
to get there from here

i dig a california season
and you can be by my side
we start a beautiful car
and go for a beautiful ride

and if you feel all right with me
we'll have a real good night for free
automobile invited, she'll excite us three
oh if only we could be in california

i dig a california rhythm
and dancing around undressed
but unfortunately young man
i can't go out west

baby don't cry tonight
you'll burn your eyes
baby don't cry in the night
there's others of lovers
in california rhythm

california rhythm
we probably won't go for years
it takes a lonely ol' man
of wealth to get there from here

baby don't cry tonight
it's not your size
baby don't cry in the night
there's not one last lover
in california rhythm

    General CommentWhat a great song. It has some prototypical pop lyrics: the California theme, the romantic lyrics, the American references, etc.
    A hit.
