  • Baby you could be a movie star, hey (in Los Angeles)
    Get yourself a medical card, yea (in Los Angeles)
    Cause that's how California rolls
    They do the fingers like red fox (in Los Angeles)
    You can make it on a light blue box, yea (in Los Angeles)
    Cause that's how California rolls

    Say when I pass you that weed and I ask if
    You can roll, you say bro don't you know I'm from round here
    Well girl I like the way you roll
    Even though you from the ghetto you belong in a home in the mountains
    Not talkin' bout the view
    I'm talkin' 'bout me and you
    So if you wanna go to Melrose
    Let's hit Adidas girl we got our own shell toes
    And then we'll go to Venice
    You roll so good you might as well let me hit it
    For like 15 minutes
    Girl, you never gon' forget it
    And if you wanna go around town
    I could show you where all the real hit it
    And if you wanna go downtown
    You might as well roll with a real nigga
    I'm not talkin' 'bout them fools
    I'm talkin' 'bout me and you

    Baby you could be a movie star, hey (in Los Angeles)
    Get yourself a medical card, yea (in Los Angeles)
    Cause that's how California rolls
    They do the fingers like red fox (in Los Angeles)
    You can make it on a light blue box, yea (in Los Angeles)
    Cause that's how California rolls

    And when I hand you that weed and I ask if you can roll
    You say no let me show you around here
    Cowgirl wanna roll with a winner
    Rodeo with a winner, Rodeo loungin'
    Ain't got nothin' to lose
    I'm talkin' 'bout me and you
    And girl I got a home in that valley
    In a rose in that valley
    Just tell 'em what my name is
    You heard about me, you heard all about me
    Mean you heard all the hittas that I'm with gangbangin'
    But I ain't talkin' 'bout the news
    You know that I'm talkin' 'bout you
    Let me show you all around
    I could show you where all the real hit it
    And if you wanna go downtown
    You might as well roll with a real nigga
    I'm not talkin' bout them folk
    I'm talkin' 'bout me and you

    Baby you could be a movie star, hey (in Los Angeles)
    Get yourself a medical card, yea (in Los Angeles)
    Cause that's how California rolls
    They do the fingers like red fox (in Los Angeles)
    You can make it on a light blue box, yea (in Los Angeles)
    Cause that's how California rolls Writer/s: CALVIN BROADUS, JAMES FAUNTLEROY, PHARRELL WILLIAMS
