"California" as written by Mitch Perkins, Kenneth Lloyd Macneil, Scott Jefferson Mc Cullough and James Moore....
I met her, while in France.
We had a brief romance.
She rubbed my arm,
I rubbed her arm,
Then we dirty-danced.
She moved down to L.A.
She met a dude, okay.
He sawed her head off with a knife,
Now she's gone away.
Hid away.
Hid away.
Hid away.
Went away.
California's nice.
It snowed there once or twice.
Bullets fly across the sky.
The path is smooth and tight.
I caught one at the bus stop.
I said: "Hey man, I've been shot."
I felt the warm blood rolling down,
Now it's gone away.
Hid away.
Hid away.
Hid away.
I met her, while in France.
We had a brief romance.
She rubbed my arm,
I rubbed her arm,
Then we dirty-danced.
She moved down to L.A.
She met a dude, okay.
He sawed her head off with a knife,
Now she's gone away.
Hid away.
Hid away.
Hid away.

    General CommentInteresting, morbid commentary on America. Rusty hails from Ontario, Canada, where the winters are long and cold. The fact that California rarely see's snow may be something that Canadians view as a stark contrast between their home country and the state of California. Canada is also known as a relatively peaceful place and Canadians also sometimes view the US as violent and lawless. So, while the references to sawing a head off and being shot may sound ridiculous and exaggerated, they provide a sarcastic look at how Canadians view California.
