Live on the Jon Stewart Show, March 29, 1995.


I'm gonna move to southern California,
I got me a ride and a reason to ignore you,
Got me a radio, ain't got no speakers,
Ain't much use so I'm leavin it for you
(I'm leavin it for you),
Could be back for you.
Gotta find a room, and runnin outta money,
Stayin up late but I gotta get up early,
Why did I move to southern California,
Smog isn't blue, someone shoulda warned you
(They shoulda warned you)
I could be back, I could be back for you
Why did I move?
(Southern California)
Why did I move?
(Southern California)
Why did I move?
(Southern California)
Why did I move?
(Southern California)
Why did I move to southern California
