California Soul - The Messengers/Brenda and The Tabulations/Nick Ashford/The Fifth Dimension/Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell/Marlena Shaw/Edwin Starr/The Undisputed Truth

California Soul

Like a sound you hear
That lingers in your ear
But you can't forget
From sundown to sunset
It's all in the air
You hear it everywhere
No matter what you do
It's gonna grab a hold on you
California soul, California soul

They say the sun comes up every morning
And if you listen, oh, so carefully
The winds that ride on the high time
Whistle in melody
And so the people started to sing
And that's how the surf gave birth untold
To California soul, California soul

When you hear the beat
You wanna pat your feet
And you've got to move cause
It's really such a groove
Puts a brand new kind of thinkin' in your mind
And you can't go wrong
'Cause you're groovin' all day long
California soul, California soul

They had the melody and the beat
But it still didn't seem complete
Until they saw two lovers kissin'
They knew just what was missin'
So happy they were rockin' and reelin'
Because that added that lovin' feeling
To California soul, California soul
Like a sound you hear
That lingers in your ear
