OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*Got on board a west-bound 747
Didn't think before deciding what to do

Allemande left and weave the ring
It never rains in California
**You swing and promenade her
It pours, man it pours


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Seems it never rains in Southern California
Seems I've often heard that kind of talk before


**But girl, don't they warn ya


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade half around you go
Sides (heads) go right & left thru, turn the girl
You square thru 4 around you go
Dosado and do an eight chain 4
It never rains in California
You swing and promenade her
It pours, man it pours


TAG

Yes, it pours, man, it pours

It Never Rains In Southern California
 
 

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
Give me a break, give me 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.

Lyrics by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood.
Recorded by Albert Hammond.
