Do you know the way to San Jose?
I've been away so long
I may go wrong and lose my way
Do you know the way to San Jose?

I'm going back
To find some peace of mind
In San Jose
L.A. is a great big freeway

Put a hundred down and buy a car
In a week maybe two,
They'll make you a star
Weeks turn into years

How quick they pass
And all the stars that never were
Are parking cars and pumping gas
You can really breathe in San Jose

They've got a lot of space
There'll be a place where I can stay
I was born and raised in San Jose
I'm going back

To find some peace of mind
In San Jose
Fame and fortunes a magnet
It can pull you far away from home

With a dream in your heart
You are never alone
Dreams turn into dust and blow away
And there you are without a friend

You pack your car and ride away
I got lots of friends in San Jose
Do you know the way to San Jose?
L.A. is a great big freeway

Put a hundred down and buy a car
In a week maybe two
They'll make you a star
Weeks turn into years

How quick they pass
And all the stars that never were
Are parking cars and pumping gas
I got lots of friends in San Jose

Do you know the way to San Jose?
Can't wait to get back home
To San Jose
