I saw you at the picture
Wearing that dress you never liked
You know, the one I bought for you
With purple flowers and green pinstripes

I know it's ugly,
That's why I bought it for you
It needed natural beauty
A pretty girl would only do

Where's that dress, now?
Pull it out for the sunshine
Where's that smile, now?
Let it out in the meantime

I'll be waiting in northern California for ya [x4]

I heard you had a story
Told by a girl you never liked
I know she's not the sweetest
But she made me coffee in the late, late night
At least she calls me back
That's nothing you'd ever do
At least she takes her chances
I know, 'cause I counted all her tattoos

Where's that dress, now?
Pull it out for the sunshine
Where's that smile, now?
Let it out in the meantime

I'll be waiting in northern California for ya [x4]

    I saw you at the picture
    Wearing that dress you never liked
    You know, the one I bought for you
    With purple flowers and green pinstripes
    I know it's ugly,
    That's why I bought it for you
    It needed natural beauty-
    A pretty girl would only do

    Where's that dress, now
    Pull it out for the sunshine
    Where's that smile, now
    Let it out in the meantime

    I'll be waiting in northern California for ya [x4]

    I heard you had a story
    Told by a girl you never liked
    I know she's not the sweetest
    But she made me coffee in the late, late night
    At least she calls me back
    That's nothing you'd ever do
    At least she takes a chance
    And I know, 'cause I counted all her tattoos

    Where's that dress, now
    Pull it out for the sunshine
    Where's that smile, now
    Let it out in the meantime

    I'll be waiting in northern California for ya [x4]
