Sitting in a park in Paris, France
Reading in the news and it sure looks bad
They won't give peace a chance
That was just a dream some of us had
Still a lot of land to see
But I wouldn't stay here
It's too old and cold and settled in its ways here.

Oh, but California
Califormia I'm coming home
I'm going to see the folks I dig
I'll even kiss a sunset pig
California I'm coming home.

I met a redneck on a Grecian isle
Who did the goat dance very well
He gave me back my smile
But he kept my camera to sell
Oh the rogue, the red red rogue
He cooked good omelettes & stews
And I might have stayed on with him there

But my heart cried out for you, California
California I'm coming home
Oh meake me feel good rock'n roll band
I'm your biggest fan
California, I'm coming home

Oh it gets so lonely
When you're walking
And the streets are full of strangers
All the news of home you read
Just gives you the blues
Just gives you the blues

So I bought me a ticket
I caught a plane to Spain
Went to a party down a red dirt road
There were lots of pretty people there
Reading Rolling Stone, reading Vogue
They said, "How long can you hang around?"
I said a week, maybe two
Just until my skin turns brown

Then I'm going home to California
California I'm coming home
Oh will you take me as I am
Strung out on another man
California, I'm coming home

Oh it gets so lonely
When you're walking
And the streets are full of strangers
All the news of home you read
More about the war
And teh bloody changes
Oh will you take me as I am?
Will you take me as I am?
Will you?
Will you take me as I am?
Hmmm mmmmm
Take me as I am


Sentada num parque em Paris, na França
Lendo o jornal e pelo jeito tudo vai mal
Ninguém dá uma chance à paz
Isso foi só um sonho de alguns de nós
Ainda há muita terra pra se ver
Mas eu não pretendo ficar por aqui
Aqui é frio e antigo e tradicional demais

Ah, mas a Califórnia
Califórnia, estou voltando pra casa
Vou ver o pessoal que gosto
Posso até beijar um tira lá na Sunset Boulevard
Califórnia, estou voltando pra casa

Conheci um caipira em uma ilha grega
Que fazia uma dança pagã muito bem
Fez meu sorriso voltar
Mas ficou com a minha câmera e vendeu
Ah, mas aquele trapaceiro
Preparava ótimas omeletes e cozidos
E eu pensei em ficar com ele por lá

Mas meu coração pedia por você, Califórnia
California, estou voltando pra casa
Ah, faça eu sentir bem como uma banda de rock and roll
Eu sou sua maior fã
Califórnia, estou voltando pra casa

Ah, mas é tão solitário
Quando você caminha
E as ruas estão cheias de estranhos
Todas as notícias de casa que você lê
Só te deixam triste
Só te deixam triste

E aí eu comprei uma passagem
E peguei um avião pra Espanha
Fui numa festa numa estrada de terra vermelha
Havia muita gente bonita lá
Lendo a Rolling Stone, lendo a Vogue
Perguntavam "Quanto tempo você vai ficar por aqui?"
Eu respondia "Uma semana, talvez duas
Só até minha pele ficar bronzeada

E aí eu vou pra casa, pra Califórnia
California, estou indo pra casa
Ah, você me aceita como eu sou
Enroscada em outro homem
Califórnia, estou indo pra casa

Ah, mas é tão solitário
Quando você caminha
E as ruas estão cheias de estranhos
Todas as notícias de casa que você lê
Só falam sobre a guerra
E as mudanças sangrentas
Ah, você me aceita como eu sou?
Você me aceita como eu sou?
Me aceita?
Você me aceita como eu sou?
Hummm, mmm
Me aceite como eu sou...
