I brought her here from Arkansas, A simple country girl, To try a Californian way of life. But it didn't take her long to learn The ways of the modern world, Now she's California's fastest moving wife.
[Chorus] She's working on it over time And soon she'll finish me. And the world's saddest man will live here in Los Angeles. Of all the things she's ever done, She's making this her best, I got the fastest growing heartache in the west.
Till we came here no man had ever Touched her heart but me, She'd never tasted any lips but mine. But I know now, man have seen What only I should see Since her lips has tasted California wine.

"What's Up" by 4 Non Blondes has endured as one of the most popular songs of the '90s, but it wasn't a huge hit at the time and the band split after one album. Frontwoman Linda Perry went on to write hits for Pink and Christina Aguilera.
