 Ahhhhh.....      Ahhhhh.....      Ahhhhh..... 
 Ahhhhh.....      Ahhhhh.....      Ahhhhh.....      Fade out...

        Spent my days with a woman unkind:
        Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine.
        Made up my mind, make a new start,
        Goin' to California with an achin' in my heart.
        Someone told me there's a girl out there
        With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.

        Took my chances on a big jet plane.
        Never let 'em tell you that they're all the same.
        Ah, the Sea was red and the Sky was grey:
        I wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
        The mountains and the canyons start to tremble and shake:
        Children of the Sun begin to wake....  [spoken:] watch out


        Seems like the wrath of the Gods got a punch on the nose
        and it's startin' to flow, I think I might be sinking.
        Throw me a line, if I reach it in time
        (I'll) meet you up there where the path runs straight and high.


        Find a Queen without a King,
        They say she plays guitar and cries and sings: la-la-la-la.
        Ride a white mare in the footsteps of Dawn,
        Tryin' to find a woman who's never, never, never been born.
        Standing on a hill and a mountain of dreams,
        Telling myself it's not as hard, hard, hard as it seems....
        
        Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... 
        Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh..... Ahhhhh.....      Fade out...
