Nicht erst die Beach Boys sangen über die California Girls:


Oh! you old Pacific coast,

Oh! you land I love the most,

Soon I'll be return to you,

To my sweetheart loving and true;

I just mailed a little note

Written to the one I miss,

Just a simple little note

I began by saying this.



Don't you remember California in September?

As we stood in the wood 'neath the beautiful sky,

I made you cry when I whispered goodbye, but dearie

Don't you remember that I promised I'd be true?

So expect a choo choo that's bring me back to California and you.


Oh! you orange scented air,

Oh! you train that brings me there,

Ev'ry other country I see,

Only makes you dearer to me;

Thro' my Pullman windowpane

As my station's drawing near,

I can hear myself again

Singing in my honey's ear.




Bei You Tube gibt es einen schönen Clip mit dem Lied gesungen von Campbell und Burr in 1914.
