​California Dreamline

This song is by Rheostatics and appears on the album Whale Music (1992).

Martin Tielli

California dreamline.
Surfing on the big wave... It's quiet underwater.
As high as high can swing to... Carbonated tide pools.
It's quiet under water.

Questionable things like:
1. Dolphins helping people to swim.
2. Everything peculiar to me.
3. The people living under the sea
(Alone with their heartbeats, in love with each other).

Disillusioned porpoise... playing with the tourists.
Drinking beer and coffee...
Sand in my tequila... Senza mea scarpe.
Me and my friend Pablo... walk the beach... incognito.

... And don't say that we've got nothing to hide,
'Cause the law's got a rap on me...
There isn't a gun in Escondido.
... But I feel like I'm swimming, and things will work out anyway.

All the naked ladies... covered up by nothing.
Spooning in the dry sand.
The sand that gets in everything
While men are pum-pum-ping iron.
Pom-pom-pom-pom-ping Aarron.
Sitting on the big fault.
