Lyrics
Write a song about California,

he said

Write a song about California,

he said to me before i left

but i, think i'll write a song about him instead.



Now, I'm sitting up on Hollywood Hill

Can't think of a single thing to sing about this place, maybe i never will

oo, I'm thinkin' bout you still.



Walking down Sunset Boulevard

Never thought writing a song about some place could be this hard

With you I don't know where to start.



Chorus:



Here's to the boy

Who keeps me up all night,

Who sings exactly right,

and never lets me know



Here's to the one

The one with the bright eyes,

Who makes me realize,

I got a long long way to go to California.



Now I am standing on this peer

with all the sights and sounds of Santa Monica still ringing in my ears.

Oh I'm wishing you were here.



Write a song about California he said.

Think of something everybody's got to do before their dead,

but i wrote this song about you instead.



Chorus:



Here's to the boy

Who keeps me up all night,

Who sings exactly right,

and never lets me know

no, no



Here's to the one

The one with the bright eyes,

Who makes me realize,

I got a long long way to go to California.



Sunsets a back down Venus Beach.

Famous names that wrap my feet.

Downscale pools with upscale parties.

Lets do lunch, lets do Palate's



Wasting minds for perfect bodies



Chorus:



Here's to the boy

Who keeps me up all night,

Who sings exactly right,

and never lets me know

no, no



Here's to the one

The one with the bright eyes,

Who makes me realize,

I got a long long way to go to California.



ooo California-a-a
