Do you know the way to San Jose?
Do you know the way to San Jose?

Put a hundred down and buy a car.
Weeks turn into years. How quick they pass
Are parking cars and pumping gas
You can really breathe in San Jose
I was born and raised in San Jose

It can pull you far away from home
Dreams turn into dust and blow away
You pack your car and ride away
L.A. is a great big freeway.
In a week, maybe two, they'll make you a star
And all the stars that never were

Do you know the way to San Jose?
