My friend Dick sat me down to say, here?s a thing you got to learn
I got love that?s stronger than words from a preacher with words to burn
Now you might say I?m a playing guy with a taste for a pretty thing
But all my love can?t be locked away inside an ity-bity golden ring

But I swear, Yes I swear, Oh I swear yeah I will care
Oh I swear, Yeah yeah, Oh I swear yeah I will care

Although it?s my way
I?m counting all my days
The California way

Now I don?t care what your daddy say but there?s a thing he?s gotta learn
If life don?t change it?s all the same and either way we?re gonna burn
Now I can?t lie to the holy guy that I aint gonna ever change
And I don?t buy that diamond love when a lady wants to ball and chain


Repeat chorus 3x
