House In California Lyrics

We were sick and tired of Buffalo,
tired of freezin’ and shovelin’ snow
So we packed it up and moved out to the coast,
to find us a house in California.

Somethin’ at the beach or Hollywood,
three of four bedrooms sound real good,
Don’t have to have a pool or river run,
just a simple little house in California.

The bank said, “son, what do you do?”,
I said I play guitar down at the Rendez-vous,
He said, “boy you got to be a big time actor or a
corporate lawyer,
if you want to buy a house in California!”

{Refrain}
‘Cause it don’t snow and it don’t rain,
ever’ day looks the same,
and before you pack your thangs, let me warn ya’,
It’s the land of milk and honey,
but you better have good money,
If you’re lookin’ for a house in California!

Well I got me a job, my wife’s got two,
kids flippin’ burgers at the local drive-thru,
We all doin’ everything we can,
we savin’ for a house in California.

Then one day the bank starts shakin’,
the sky went dark and the earth was a quakin’
Then o’r night, it be came alarmin’,
how the price dropped on a house in California!

Well it needs a roof and it needs a floor,
yeah yeah, it’s a real fixer-upper,
Friends back east said somebody should have warned
ya, about buyin’ my big house in California.

{Refrain}
‘Cause it don’t snow and it don’t rain,
ever’ day looks the same,
and before you pack your thangs, let me warn ya’,
It’s the land of milk and honey,
but you better have good money,
If you’re lookin’ for a house in California!
