  • She got the long blond hair
    Got the red sports car
    And you know she's got the
    Top laid back
    She got the movie star smile
    Got the sun kissed tan
    Santa Barbara in summer
    Yeah, she feels like that

    Hey she's like a canyon drive
    In a midnight sky
    Those eyes are deep enough
    To get lost
    Her legs are palm tree tall
    The way she walks
    Like the heat on a runway
    When the cameras go off

    She's small town from the country
    She ain't big time but she could be

    [Chorus]
    Hey, Hollywood never looked this good
    Bright as the big screen burns
    Hey, I bet drivin' down sunset
    They're lookin' for a face like hers
    Yeah, I've been all around this world
    And she'd be California
    If California was a girl

    She's like a red, red wine
    Like a righteous wave
    She's a day at the beach in Corona del Mar
    She's never been out there
    Felt the bright spot light
    But she could have her own star
    On that dreamer's boulevard

    I've driven down that coastline
    And I've stood there under that big sign

    [Chorus]

    I'd chase that wild sunset
    I'd be gone on my way,
    Way out west
    Yeah, I've been all around this town

    Hey, Hollywood never looked this good
    Bright as the big screen

    [Chorus]

    Now she'd be California
    Hey, California

    She got the long blonde hair
    Got the red sports car
    And you know she's got the
    Top laid back
    She got the movie star smile
    Got the sun kissed tan
    Santa Barbara in summer
    Yeah, she feels like that

    Yeah, she'd be California
    Hey, Hollywood. Writer/s: JASON SELLERS, PAUL JENKINS, TIM NICHOLS
