Gretchen Wilson - California Girls Lyrics




I ain't never had a problem with California
There's a lot of good women from Sacramento to Carona
But them Hollywood types after a while wearon ya
Struttin' around in their size zeros
Skinny little girls no meat on their bones
Never even heard of George Jones

[Chorus:]
Ain't you glad we ain't all California girls
Ain't you glad there's still a few of us left.
That know how to rock your world
Ain't afraid to eat fried chicken and dirty dance to Merle
Ain't you glad we ain't all California girls

There ain't nothing wrong with plastic surgery
Well Dolly Parton never looked so good to me
Everybody ought to be exactly who they want to be
But that Paris Hilton Gets under my skin
With her big fake smile and and her painted on tan
She'd never have a chance at a real man

[Chorus x2]

Ain't you glad we ain't all California girls
Ain't you glad there's still a few of us left.
That know how to rock your world
Ain't afraid to eat fried chicken and dirty dance to Merle
Ain't you glad we ain't all California girls

Ain't you glad we ain't all California girls.

    What happened to the first part?

  3. katie Gonzalez

    I'm a city girl, I don't eat fried chicken, I love my mani pedis and I will always be plastic ....but this song is catchy.

  4. MagicAwesome MukbangAsmr

    Did anyone else catch how the guitar slide right after she sings "There ain't nothing wrong with plastic surgery" kinda sounds like a wolf whistle as well as someone going "Nuh-uh" (like as a way of saying nope)?

  10. XXanimeseekerXX

    I don't like California. . .

  11. Ruben T

    There are some damn beautiful ladies from the west coast, but California girls can't even compare to southern women.

  12. meadowmorph

    Isn't that suppose to be "deep fry chicken", not "eat fried chicken'?  Listen to it.  I thought it was "eat fried chicken" too till I listened to it a few dozen times and watched the official video.  meh, not really a biggie.

    Dan Allured

    i always think she sings dirty dance the moon,everyone seems to think its dirty dance to merle, but theres definately a "ooo" sound in there!

  34. Cheyenne Richardson

  42. Mandy89Pandy

    lol lemme guess your from there? shut the fuck up i laugh at your stupidity

  43. NerdyFox01

    @arviagent13 DEAR GOD!!! Be jealous of your four pound girls?! Your too funny!!! And what wrong with being landlocked? What do you enjoy being surrounded by fish piss? I sure as hell don't!

  44. NerdyFox01

    @arviagent13 Hmmm... your making a pretty damn shitty representative of California. Just keep showing us how annoying Californians are, pretty boy wannabe. I never implied that people from Tennessee are fat, you just thought that. I have never met a racist person in Tennessee, so obviously, you don't know what your talking about. Before you make ussumptions, you may wanna travel here. :)

  45. NerdyFox01

    I was trying to say that I don't watch those retarded reality tv shows. Oooh I made a few typos, I should be arrested, and hung for my devious crime.

  46. NerdyFox01

    Yes we do have a north, south, and west idiot. We don't have fat people because we work our butts off unlike you prissy manicured dumbasses. Actually, real southerners respects all kinds of people as long as they don't tick us off. So your argument is invalid. And would you stop defending your overrated state that doesn't matter to us Tennessians at all? 'Cus honey, I don't desire to go any where near that god awful state.

  47. NerdyFox01

    @arviagent13 I live in Tennessee, Where the mountains are beautiful, the men are real men, and the women have brains bigger than their boobs. HollyWood isn't all it's cut out to be. Unfortunately, I've been there. Never going back.

  48. NerdyFox01

    Okay, while you keep getting skinnier, and living the boring life~ :)

  49. NerdyFox01

    Well, I take beauty by personality; but I'll stop complaining to you, and respect your opinion.

  50. NerdyFox01

    Well, us "Yallers" are those beautiful girls. :P

  51. NerdyFox01

    You mean little Paris Hilton minions? Okay, go be a dumbass. That's fine by me. :P

  73. jeremy Arreaga

    I'm from California and
    this song is like saying
    yeah people in the south are all fine and dandy but aren't you glad you aren't a person of color living there
    and the crack at paris hilton well I'm not a fan of garth brooks
    and i think the girls down here are pretty nice thats why most of your men move down here and marry them oh and one last thing
    If california girls are so bad why are there so many songs about them and how amazing they are?
    just my opinion aint nothing that I'm saying law

  74. Kaetlyn McGrew

    @GetYourBlinkOn Well I'm sorry you're a Cal girl... Because us Country girls, we're REAL on the OUTSIDE. Oh, and one more thing... Us Country girls we're REAL on the INSIDE too! LOL So I guess the second thing you left out is that Cal girls are FAKE on the INSIDE too!

  75. Ultumatechipettefan3

    I sure am proud to California Girl~ Because I can stay true to myself, and trust me~ I can do just about everything a country Girl can do~ Heck, why would I be listening to Gretchen Wilson anyway! lol Good One Gretch....But I'm pretty freakin Awesome livin in my sunny state..raiseing Cows and Providing Milk to the West cost~

    It acknowledges that California and most of its female folk have their merits, but it can take things too far.

  95. Ali M

    @hollyandbecky1 Just use windows movie maker, select a background, select the text thing, type the text, select how long you want the lyrics on screen for, then repeat this until you've got lyrics for the whole song...And of course, to add the song, just add an audio file. :)
