The Lyrics

About the new California
No, not going back to California
People telling me, I'm not alone
Cause old life has locked down in California
New ways are blessed, abandoned ways of old

Sidewalk sh-t survives in San Francisco
Common to the streets, you're gonna use
And old life has locked down in California
You've lost your past, they see new ways for you

Shocked about new life in California
Freaked about the needles I have seen
And old life has locked down in California
Now California, is one place I won't be

No, not going back to California
They will dismember California
Not going back to California

Not to mention the fact that most of the state is on fire. I've got family out there. I wish they would move here. But looking out the window at the first snowfall of the year, I know why they never will.

Great job, Randy... 5's across the board ! "Now California, is one place I won't be..." Loved it !

I couldn't disagree more on the message, but there's no denying the strong technical merits. Top marks, even if 'how funny' sort of doesn't apply.
