it never rains in southern california lyrics – albert hammond

got on board a westbound seven-forty-seven
didn’t think before deciding what to do
all that talk of opportunities
tv breaks and movies
rang true, sure rang true

seems it never rains in southern california
seems i’ve often heard that kind of talk before
it never rains in california
but, girl, don’t they warn ya
it pours, man, it pours

out of work, i’m out of my head
out of self-respect, i’m out of bread
i’m underloved, i’m underfed
i wanna go home

it never rains in california
but, girl, don’t they warn ya
it pours, man, it pours

will you tell the folks back home i nearly made it
i had offers but don’t know which one to take
please, don’t tell them how you found me
don’t tell them how you found me
gimme a break, gimme a break

seems it never rains in southern california
seems i’ve often heard that kind of talk before
it never rains in california
but, girl, don’t they warn ya
it pours, man, it pours

(seems it never rains in southern california
seems i’ve often heard that kind of talk before
it never rains in california
but, girl, don’t they warn ya
it pours, man…)
