"California Gurls" as written by and Katy/gottwald Perry....
Greetings loved ones
Let's take a journey

I know a place
Where the grass is really greener
Warm, wet n' wild
There must be something in the water
Sippin' gin and juice
Laying underneath the palm trees
(undone)
The boys
Break their necks
Try'na to creep a little sneak peek
(at us)

You could travel the world
But nothing comes close
To the golden coast
Once you party with us
You'll be falling in love
Ooh oh ooh oh oh ooh

California gurls
We're unforgettable
Daisy dukes
Bikinis on top
Sun-kissed skin
So hot
We'll melt your Popsicle
Ooh oh ooh
Ooh oh ooh

California gurls
We're undeniable
Fine, fresh, fierce
We got it unlocked
West coast represent
Now put your hands up
Ooh oh ooh
Ooh oh ooh

Sex on the beach
We don't mind sand in our stilettos
We freak
In my jeep
Snoop doggy-dog on the stereo oh oh

You could travel the world
But nothing comes close
To the golden coast
Once you party with us
You'll be falling in love
Ooh oh ooh ooh oh ooh

California gurls
We're unforgettable
Daisy dukes
Bikinis on top
Sun-kissed skin
So hot
We'll melt your Popsicle
Ooh oh ooh
Ooh oh ooh

California gurls
We're undeniable
Fine, fresh, fierce
We got it on lock
West coast represent
Now put your hands up
Ooh oh ooh
Ooh oh ooh

Toned tan
Fit and ready
Turn it up cause its gettin' heavy
Wild, wild west coast
These are the gurls I love the most
I mean the ones
I mean like shes the one
Kiss her, touch her
Squeeze her buns
The gurls a freak
She drives a jeep
And live on the beach
I'm okay
I won't play
I love the bay
Just like I love L.A.
Venice beach
And palm springs
Summer time is everything
Home boys
Bangin' out
All that ass
Hanging out
Bikinis, tankinis, martinis
No weenies
Just a king
And a Queenie
Katy my lady
(yeah)
And looky here baby
(uh huh)
I'm all up on you
'Cause you representing California (oh yeah)

California gurls
We're unforgettable
Daisy dukes
Bikinis on top
Sun-kissed skin
So hot
We'll melt your Popsicle
Ooh oh ooh
Ooh oh ooh

California gurls
We're undeniable
Fine, fresh, fierce
We got it on lock
West coast represent (west coast, west coast)
Now put your hands up
Ooh oh ooh
Ooh oh ooh

(California, California)
California gurls man
(California)
(California gurls)

    General CommentAn anthem for stupid girls. Seriously, who else thinks how they party makes them desirable? Besides, people of CA are nothing like this. Sex & stilettos on the beach? Really? Perhaps a few ultra-wealthy girls live this way. So basically it's a song bragging about daddy being rich. Don't get me wrong, I'm all in favor of wealth. It's entitlement that stinks. And this song reeks of it.

    Despite the fact that it's being played ad nauseum, we'll all forget this one in a few years.

    My OpinionThis song is very stereotypical about girls from California. Stating they're all tan (sun-kissed skin) and all wear Daisy Dukes (Daisy Dukes, bikinis on top) I know a lot of girls from California and they are not like this. Shame, this shit is the "summer hit" :(

    General Commentwas there REALLY any reason for her to spell it gurls instead of girls? that reason alone is preventing me from liking this song. =.="
