Lyrics verse 1:
WHEN THE WINTRY WINDS ARE BLOWING,
AND THE SNOW IS STARTING IN TO FALL,
THEN MY EYES TURN WESTWARD,
KNOWING THAT'S THE PLACE
I LOVE THE BEST OF ALL.
CALIFORNIA,
I'VE BEEN BLUE,
SINCE I'VE BEEN AWAY FROM YOU,
I CAN'T WAIT 'TIL I GET GOING,
EVEN NOW I'M STARTING IN TO CALL,
OH,

Chorus:
CALIFORNIA, HERE I COME,
RIGHT BACK WHERE I STARTED FROM.
WHERE BOWERS
OF FLOWERS
BLOOM IN THE SUN
EACH MORNIN'
AT DAWNIN'
BIRDIES SING
ND EV'RYTHING.
A SUN-KISSED MISS SAID,
DON'T BE LATE.
THAT'S WHY I CAN HARDLY WAIT.
OPEN UP THAT GOLDEN GATE,
CALIFORNIA, HERE I COME.

verse 2:
ANYONE WHO LIKES TO WANDER
OUGHT TO KEEP THIS SAYING
IN HIS MIND,
ABSENCE MAKES THE HEART GROW FONDER
OF THE GOOD OLD PLACE
YOU LEAVE BEHIND.
WHEN YOU'VE HIT THE TRAIL AWHILE,
SEEMS YOU RARELY SEE A SMILE
THAT'S WHY I MUST FLY OUT YONDER
WHERE A FROWN
IS MIGHTY HARD TO FIND!
OH,

Chorus:
CALIFORNIA, HERE I COME,
RIGHT BACK WHERE I STARTED FROM.
WHERE BOWERS
OF FLOWERS
LOOM IN THE SUN
EACH MORNIN'
AT DAWNIN'
BIRDIES SING
AND EV'RYTHING.
A SUN-KISSED MISS SAID,
DON'T BE LATE.
THAT'S WHY I CAN HARDLY WAIT.
OPEN UP THAT GOLDEN GATE,
CALIFORNIA, HERE I COME.

Lyrics CRAZY RHYTHM,
HERE'S THE DOORWAY,
I'LL GO MY WAY,
YOU GO YOUR WAY,
CRAZY RHYTHM,
FROM NOW ON
WE'RE THROUGH.
HERE IS WHERE
WE HAVE A SHOWDOWN,
I'M TOO HIGH-HAT,
YOU'RE TOO LOW-DOWN,
CRAZY RHYTHM,
HERE'S GOODBYE
TO YOU!
THEY SAY THAT
WHEN A HIGH-BROW
MEETS A LOW-BROW
WALKIN' ALONG BROADWAY.
SOON THE HIGH-BROW,
HE HAS NO BROW,
AIN'T IT A SHAME?
AND YOU'RE TO BLAME.
WHAT'S THE USE
OF PROHIBITION?
YOU PRODUCE
THE SAME CONDITION.
CRAZY RHYTHM,
FROM NOW ON,
WE'RE THROUGH.
CRAZY RHYTHM,
I'VE GONE CRAZY
TOO.

Alt. Title My Honey's Loving Arms

Writers Joseph Meyer, Herman Ruby

Genres Standard

Recorded 1963

Lyrics I LOVE YOUR LOVIN' ARMS
THEY HOLD A WORLD OF CHARMS,
A PLACE TO NESTLE
WHEN I AM LONELY.
A COZY MORRIS CHAIR,
OH, WHAT A HAPPY PAIR!
ONE CARESS,
HAPPINESS,
SEEMS TO BLESS MY LITTLE HONEY.
I LOVE YOU MORE
EACH DAY
WHEN YEARS
HAVE PASSED AWAY
YOU'LL FIND
MY LOVE BELONGS TO YOU
ONLY
'CAUSE WHEN THE WORLD
SEEMS WRONG,
I KNOW THAT I BELONG
RIGHT IN
MY HONEY'S LOVIN' ARMS.
