The Amsun may rise in the East
At least it Fsettles in the final location
It’s Cunderstood that GHollywood
Sells FCaliforniDmcation

AmMarry me girl be my fairy to the world
Be my Fvery own constellation
A Amteenage bride with a baby inside
Getting Fhigh on information
And Cbuy me a star on the Gboulevard

Am   F   Am   F

 

AmSpace may be the final frontier
But it’s Fmade in a Hollywood basement
AmCobain can you hear the spheres
Singing Fsongs off station to station
And CAlderaan’s not Gfar away
It’s FCaliforniDmcation

Verse:
DestAmruction leads to a very rough road
But it Falso breeds creation
And Amearthquakes are to a girl’s guitar
They’re Fjust another good vibration
And Ctidal waves couldn’t Gsave the world
From FCaliforniDmcation
