california man lyrics – electric light orchestra

goin’ to a party,
meet me out after school.
well we go to a place
where the jive is really cool.
and if the band stops a playin’
there’s a jukebox in the hall.

well put your blue dress on,
and your folks all gone.
you’ll sure give the guys a ball.

chorus:
get that real guitar boy shakin’,
i’m a california man,
dance right on till the floors are breakin’
i’m a california man.

well i cross my mamma so bad
and this a woman’s just a making me mad.
so i don’t care if your legs start aching,
i’m a california man.
oh my, i’m a california man.

oh my legs start to shiver
when i hear you call my name.
well, my knees keep a knocking,
and i’m feeling tired bugs me down.

an’ when we take off fine,
an’ my jeans are way down low.
when i waggle my hips
it’s making me feel like a king of rock n’ roll

chorus
