The Lyrics

Dedicated to all those morons who don't know who's really to blame for California's budget woes. And every other State's budget woes.
All the leaves are brown 'round the Frisco Bay.
I lost my light bulb on a winter's day.
I'd be safe and warm if he'd just go away.
California screamin' at Governor named Gray.

Stopped into a church down in West L.A.
Well I got down on my knees and I began to pray:
"Please, God, send me Schwarzenegger,
he'll put things the right way."
California screamin' at Governor named Gray.

All the leaves are brown 'round the Frisco Bay.
I lost my light bulb on a winter's day.
If I'd just blame Georgie, then the truth I'd say.
California screamin' at Governor named Gray.
California screamin' at Governor named Gray.
California screamin' at Governor named Gray.

Mike - Someone doesn't like this song. I see they dinged you on pace and did the same to me. I wish these idiots would vote the correct way. Your pace is a definite 5.

Boy, what a song! HIGH 5s for you!

I agree with Guy. The pace is dead on! Sorry about the 4's for the rest, but I think more words should've been replaced (different than the original) and I don't get the light bulb phrase, either.
