All
the streets are brown
—————–
All the streets are browned out

And
the billboards are grey
—————–
And the billboards are grey

I’ve
been for a walkin
—————–
I’ve been for a walkin

On
a power outage day
—————–
On a power outage day

I’d
be safe and warm
—————–
I’d be safe and warm

If
I wasn't in L.A.
—————–
If I wasn't in L.A.

Californians
are dreaming
—————–
Californians are dreaming

Of
taking your power away

Stopped
into a utility

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 govnor likes the old growth
—————–
govnor likes the old growth

He
knows I’m gonna pay
—————–
Knows I’m gonna pay

Californians
are dreaming
—————–
Californians are dreaming

Of
takin your power away

All
the streets are browned out
—————–
All the streets are browned out

And
the billboards are grey
—————–
And the billboards are grey

I’ve
been for a walkin
—————–
I’ve been for a walkin

On
a power shortage day
—————– On a power shortage day

If
I didn’t tell them
—————– If I didn’t tell them

I
could steal some power today
—————– steal some power today

Californians
are dreaming
—————– Californians are dreaming

Of
taking your power away
—————– Californians are dreaming

Of
taking your power away
—————– Californians are dreaming

Of
taking your power away
