The Lyrics

1: All the sky is brown and the leaves are gray.
I was being stalked by a flaming gay.
I might come to harm- if this wasn't L.A.
California screamin' ... Wish I could get away.-

2: Stopped me just to flirt as he swished and swayed.
Well, he got down on his knees and I began to pray.
A preacher stopped us cold.- He also wants- to play.
California screamin' ... Wish I could get away.-

3: All the sky is brown and the leaves are gray.
I was being stalked by a flaming gay.
If I wasn't married, I might enjoy- the day.
California screamin' ... Wish I could get away.-

Very close match to Mamas & Papas. Begs the question: Is this politically incorrect?

Very close to original, but much funnier.
