The Mama’s & The Papa’s - California dreaming
Tekst en muziek: John Phillips en Michelle Phillips
(1966)






All the leaves are brown, all the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey, and the sky is grey
I’ve been for a walk, I’ve been for a walk
On a winter’s day, on a winter’s day
I’d be safe and warm, I’d be safe and warm
If I was in L.A., if I was in L.A.
California dreamin’, California dreamin’
On such a winter’s day



Stopped into a church, I passed along the way
Well, I got down on my knees, got down on my knees
And I pretend to pray, I pretend to pray
You know the preacher likes the cold, preacher likes the cold
He knows I’m gonna stay, knows I’m gonna stay
California dreamin’, California dreamin’
On such a winter’s day



All the leaves are brown, all the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey, and the sky is grey
I’ve been for a walk, I’ve been for a walk
On a winter’s day, on a winter’s day
If I didn’t tell her, if I didn’t tell her
I could leave today, I could leave today
California dreamin’, California dreamin’
On such a winter’s day
California dreamin’, on such a winter’s day
California dreamin’, on such a winter’s day
