The Lyrics

About the way things are in the major cities of California
All the streets around ( all the streets around )
Where no child can play ( where no child can play )
Can't go for a walk ( can't go for a walk )
Where the druggies lay ( where the druggies lay )
I'd feel safe and warm ( I'd feel safe and warm )
If I was far away ( If I was far away )

Californian's leavin' ( Californian's leavin' )
So just the druggies stay

Brought in with the surge, they trashed along the way
Well the Gov-nor did appease ( Gov-nor did appease )
Now all intend to stay ( all intend to stay )
You know illegals have control ( illegals have control )
You know they got their way ( know they got their way )

Californian's leavin' ( Californian's leavin' )
So just illegals stay

All the streets around ( all the streets around )
Where no child can play ( where no child can play )
Can't go for a walk ( can't go for a walk )
Where the homeless stay ( where the homeless stay )
They're now city dwellers ( they're now city dwellers )
I should leave today ( I should leave today )

Californian's leavin' ( Californian's leavin' )
So just the druggies stay
Californian's leavin'
So just illegals stay
Californian's leavin'
So just the homeless stay

Well, like he said, "If you don't like it, you can leave."

"All the streets are brown" would have worked as well

I'm surprised there has not been a petition to secede from the US by California. It could make a much better Canadian province. Oh, this OS does remind me that Woodstock is 1 month away.

California there I go ... right back to the ice and snow ... Where bowers of flowers are dead until spring ... But PC tyrants dont run everything ..... A corn fed girlie says Dont be late ... That's why I wont hesitate .... To just get on that Interstate .... California there I go

One reason Cali wouldnt secede is because they know the interior of the state would instantly secede from it, along with the eastern parts of Oregon and Washington

I used to think that California would be better off seceding. Now they have nobody to blame but themselves.

The Golden State has problems, no doubt. But compared to Florida, for example (the most f*cked-up state in the country), medieval sh!tholes like Texas, Alabama, Georgie, Missouri, etc., CA is looking pretty good.

^ wouldst thou kindly explain why California appeases thee? 5s for parody.
Bella - July 20, 2019 - Report this comment
The only thing turning Texas into a "sh!thole" is all the Californians moving here.

Missouri has beautiful scenery and great gun laws. Weather is crap, but so is Kansas. California relatives won't move here because of winter.
