California Man – Written by Roy Wood

Going to a party meet me out after school
Well we’re going to a place where the jive is really cool
And if the band stops playing there’s a jukebox down the hall
With your blue dress on and your folks all gone
You’ll sure give the guys a ball

Get that real guitar boy shakin’
I’m a California man
Dance right down till the floors are breakin’
I’m a California man

Well I cross my mamma so bad
And this woman she’s making me mad
So I don’t care if your legs start aching
I’m a California man

Well 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
And when we take off fine and my jeans are way down low
When I waggle my hips it’s making me feel
Like the king of rock ‘n’ roll

Get that real guitar boy shakin’
I’m a California man
Dance right down till the floors are breakin’
I’m a California man

Well I cross my mamma so bad
And this woman she’s making me mad
So I don’t care if your legs start aching
I’m a California man

I’m a California man

Going to a party meet me out after school
Well we’re going to a place where the jive is really cool
And if the band stops playing there’s a jukebox down the hall
And with your blue dress on your folks all gone
You’re sure to give the guys a ball

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 woman she’s making me mad
So I don’t care if your legs start aching
I’m a California man
I’m a California man
