"California" as written by Alexander Greenwald, Jason Schwartzmann, B G De Sylva, Al Jolson and Joseph Meyer....
We've been on the run
Driving in the sun
Looking out for number one
California here we come
Right back where we started from

Hustlers grab your guns
Your shadow weighs a ton
Driving down the 101
California here we come
Right back where we started from

California!
Here we come!

On the stereo
Listen as we go
Nothing's gonna stop me now
California here we come
Right back where we started from
Pedal to the floor
Thinkin' of the roar
Gotta get us to the show
California here we come
Right back where we started from

California!
Here we come!

    General CommentOh and another thing about california... southern california... I hate it. LA is probably the worst cd i've ever been in. hollywood is full of stupid bitches who want to make it to be star. I hate it there. but Nocal is awesome.

    General CommentIf you want to look at it deeply, its about a journey of the band to this Promise Land, this excitement, sorta patriotic. but if u dont then its a song with a guy with strong lungs

    General Commenti like this song a lot. i take it as you gotta get to somewhere that you feel you belong. you are searching to find that place, theirs happens to be California. but that is just how i see it! :)

    General CommentIt's not only catchy, but the lead singer is Jason Schwartzman, star of the movie "Rushmore"!
