Lyrics
All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray
I’ve been for a walk on a winter’s day
I’d be safe and warm if I was in L.A.
California dreamin’ (California dreamin’) on such a winter’s day

Stopped in to a church I passed along the way
Well I got down on my knees and I pretend to pray
You know the preacher likes the cold, he knows I’m gonna stay
California dreamin’ (California dreamin’) on such a winter’s day
California dreamin’ (California dreamin’) on such a winter’s day

All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray
I’ve been for a walk on a winter’s day
If I didn’t tell her I could leave today
California dreamin’ (California dreamin’) on such a winter’s day
California dreamin’ (California dreamin’) on such a winter’s day
California dreamin’ on such a winter’s day
