It never rains in California is a song from my youth and it always struck me the hopelessness expressed in that song. I always wondered what the final outcome would or should be as you're left hanging at the end. I can't imagine it ending well.



Got on board a westbound seven forty seven
Didn't think before deciding what to do
All that talk of opportunities, TV breaks and movies
Rang true, sure rang true

Seems it never rains in Southern California
Seems I've often heard that kind of talk before
It never rains in California, but girl, don't they warn ya
It pours, man, it pours

Out of work, I'm out of my head
Out of self respect, I'm out of bread
I'm under loved, I'm underfed
I wanna go home

It never rains in California, but girl, don't they warn ya
It pours, man, it pours

Will you tell the folks back home I nearly made it?
Had offers but don't know which one to take
Please, don't tell 'em how you found me
Don't tell 'em how you found me
Gimme a break, gimme a break

Seems it never rains in Southern California
Seems I've often heard that kind of talk before
It never rains in California, but girl, don't they warn ya
It pours, man, it pours
