All the leaves are brown
And the sky is gray
I went for a walk
On a winter's day

I'd be safe and warm
If I was in L.A.
California dreamin'
On such a winter's day

I stopped into a church

(Got down on my knees)
And I pretend to pray
(I pretend to pray)

(Preacher likes the cold)
He knows I'm gonna stay
(Knows I'm gonna stay)

(California dreamin')
On such a winter's day

All the leaves are brown
(The leaves are brown)
And the sky is gray
(And the sky is gray)

I went for a walk
(I went for a walk)
On a winter's day
(On a winter's day)

If I didn't tell her
(If I didn't tell her)
I could leave today
(I could leave today)

Oh, California dreamin'
(California dreamin')
On such a winter's day
(California dreamin')
On such a winter's day

(California dreamin')
On such a winter's day
(California dreamin')
On such a winter's day
