The Lyrics

To all non Californians: Sorry, you may not get this one. It's pretty good though and if you would like to contact me about obtaining the song rights then my email adress is at the bottom. Thanks- J.G.
If tomorrow all the gold was gone,
that earned our state it's fame.
And we had to pay 5 bucks for gas,
well it's almost just the same.
Then I'd thank my lucky stars
to be living here today.
Cause the flag's still got a grizzly bear
and Arnold can't take that away.

And I'm proud to be Californian,
where the oceans close to me.
And I wont forget the men who made
it a state in 1850.

And I'll proudly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
Cause there aint no doubt I love this land,
God bless the Golden State.

From the cystal blue Lake Tahoe,
to the desert of Mojave.
Across the wine drinkers of Napa,
and the Mendocino hippies.
From San Jose to San Diego,
from S.F. to L.A.,
We all take pride in being only the second state,
to say all marriage is O.K.

Yes we're proud to be Californian,
where the oceans close to us.
Where we'd bike across the Golden Gate,
tour Napa in a bus.

And we'l proudly stand up,
next to you and defend our liiberal ways.
Cause you know by now we love this land,
God bless the Golden State!

I might try a parody about Burbank to this song, but I don't think I could get it to fit the pacing.
