California Dreamin'
The Mamas & the Papas Lyrics


All the leaves are brown (all the leaves are brown)
And the sky is grey (and the sky is grey)
I've been for a walk (I've been for a walk)
On a winter's day (on a winter's day)
I'd be safe and warm (I'd be safe and warm)
If I was in L.A. (if I was in L.A.)

California dreamin' (California dreamin')
On such a winter's day

Stopped into a church
I passed along the way
Well, I got down on my knees (got down on my knees)
And I pretend to pray (I pretend to pray)
You know the preacher like the cold (preacher like the cold)
He knows I'm gonna stay (knows I'm gonna stay)

California dreamin' (California dreamin')
On such a winter's day

All the leaves are brown (all the leaves are brown)
And the sky is grey (and the sky is grey)
I've been for a walk (I've been for a walk)
On a winter's day (on a winter's day)
If I didn't tell her (if I didn't tell her)
I could leave today (I could leave today)

California dreamin' (California dreamin')
On such a winter's day (California dreamin')
On such a winter's day (California dreamin')
On such a winter's day

Before i even argue that how about this
The passage where Jesus said, “Do not judge, or you too will be judged” (Matthew 7:1)
so you will be judged god is the only one who can judge love thy neighbor

How do we know God will forgive us? We know it because of Jesus Christ. He was without sin—but when He died on the cross, all our sins were transferred to Him, and He became the final and complete sacrifice for our sins. Think of it: We deserved to die for our sins—but He died in our place! “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us” (1 John 3:16).
whens the last time you picked up a bible by the way?
Love thy neighbor and learn your religion

and God Bless :) you judgmental piece of shit

I don't think these guys had any idea how famous this song would become.

Likely, they did not realize how well this song would age. Phillips was correct years later, when he told one interviewer that the band had a run of 18 months. But those 18 months, they were the hottest thing going. And afterward, they broke up in 1968. Phillips also described driving down the road in a VW with bandmate Denny Doherty behind the wheel. A radio station was playing the whole Sergeant Pepper album by the Beatles, start to finish. Doherty pulled over on the shoulder so they could listen, Phillips said. And afterward, Denny told John, "you have to write songs like that, John!" And Phillips said that's what he tried to do. The rest is history..
