    California
    Brings da Heat

    Various
    Mixed Cultures

    Nice vibes
    Beyond
    The lies

    Nice people

    Feeling tha
    West Coast
    This is the Ultimate
    Place
    I wanna be

    Not afraid
    To meet
    New people

    Welcoming
    With open arms

    East Coast
    Dirty South
    And everything
    In between

    Quick
    To learn

    Ma
    Companions

    Tend to be
    From da East

    So
    I'm wishing
    You
    Safety
    In
    The
    Air

    And
    God
    Guides

    The airplanes
    With his hands
    God speed
    All through

    The night

    I treat people
    Just the way
    I wanna be
    Treated

    And I am
    Finding

    That I've been
    Trying too hard

    To represent
    But I keep on smiling

    California Love
    Is where
    It's at
    Don't
    Ever
    Deny It
