California shoeshine boys, counting up their dimes
Counting up the girls they've known and counting up the times
I've got heartache but I've got news
California shoeshine boys, you can shine my shoes

California shoeshine boys never really care
Only for that California shoeshine in their hair
I've got heartache but I've got news
California shoeshine boys, you can shine my shoes

California shoeshine boys, rapping ten feet tall
John can make sweet Cindy cry but Joe can make her crawl
I've got heartache, I've got heartache, I've got miles of heartache
I've got heartache, I've got miles of heartache

Let me count, let me count, let me count, let me count
I've got miles of heartache, let me count
I've got miles of heartache, let me count, let me count, let me count
I've got miles of heartache but I got news
California sunshine boys, yeah, yeah, yeah

California shoeshine boys, counting up their dimes
Counting up the girls they've known and counting up the times
I've got heartache but I've got news
California shoeshine boys, you can shine my shoes

California shoeshine boys, yeah
California shoeshine boys, yeah
California shoeshine boys
California shoeshine boys
California shoeshine boys, yeah
