Just like California was not even there
Since it's gone I'm so withdrawn, I ain't got no one nowhere
Right beside the ocean, my darlin' Clementine
Well the water got high and she never got dry and she was a water sign

Time is on my bad side
Halfway there just wouldn't be fair
So I'm goin' all the way tonight
Halfway there just wouldn't be fair
So I'm goin' all the way tonight

Just like California to make a fool of me
Steal the sideshow, burn the disco, slide into the sea
I'm a thinking person and I think that it's wrong
To keep on saying true love's waiting, when true love is long gone
