California’s Callin’ Me (copyright © 2018)

{v1}
It’s cloudy all the time now
The sun is in retreat
All it ever does is rain

I long to feel the sun caress my skin
Give me freckles make me squint
Bet it’s shining in LA

{v2}
I’m restless and distracted
I’ve vowed to make a change
Pack my bags move to the coast

Exchange my umbrella for a pair of shades
The Bronx for Pacific Palisades
Autumn leaves for orange groves

{ch}
California’s calling me
California’s calling me
California’s calling me
Calling my name

California’s calling me
California’s calling me
California’s calling me
Cal-i-for-nia
Here I come

{v3}
I’ll say goodbye to family
Bid farewell to friends
Wish them luck and all the best

And though I will miss them one and all
Miss their love, their laughs, their faults
I leave here with no regrets

{ch}

{br}
Like a sun that sinks down in the west
That rises, climbs and shines again
You can reinvent yourself in California

{ch}
