Queen Latifah - California Dreamin' Lyrics




All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray
Away for a walk on a winter's day
I'd be so safe and warm if I was in L.A.
California dreamin' on such a winter's day

I stopped into a church yes I did, that I passed along the way
And I got down on my knees down on my knees
And I pretended to pray, you know the preacher he likes it cold
'Coz he knows I'm gonna stay, as he knows I'm gonna stay
California dreamin' on such a winter's day, oh yeah

All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray
I've been for a walk on a cold winter's day, yeah
I'd be so safe and warm if I was in L.A
California dreamin' on such a winter's day

On such a winter's day, on such a winter's day
California, California dreamin', California dreamin'
Play that for me

I know it's just a dream, dream of California dreamin'

  16. Howard Tessler

    I've been a fan of her music from when she was still a teenager …. Today's artists need to follow her lead as she's been a class act for 30 years in the music industry where most today can't keep it together to even last for 15 minutes of fame.

  17. Ekaterina Sherstkova

    All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray
    Away for a walk on a winter's day
    I'd be so safe and warm if I was in L.A.
    California dreamin' on such a winter's day

    I stopped into a church yes I did, that I passed along the way
    And I got down on my knees down on my knees
    And I pretended to pray, you know the preacher he likes it cold
    'Coz he knows I'm gonna stay, as he knows I'm gonna stay
    California dreamin' on such a winter's day, oh yeah

    All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray
    I've been for a walk on a cold winter's day, yeah
    I'd be so safe and warm if I was in L.A
    California dreamin' on such a winter's day

    On such a winter's day, on such a winter's day
    California, California dreamin', California dreamin'
    Play that for me

    I know it's just a dream, dream of California dreaming

    This one is better than Sia's version.

  41. Nubian Sioux

    She has always been talented, this isn't new to me. But some people are too worried about her sexual orientation, instead of acknowledging her plethora of talent.

  63. Yahwehs Girl

    Got to be the best version of this song ive heard. Heavenly divine

  64. David

    Are you kidding me? I thought she was some hip hop hack drama queen. I never knew she had so much talent.

    Nubian Sioux

    Only when she wants to be (hip hop hack drama queen), hopefully she leaves it in the past.

    Robin Holbrook

    THATS WHY SHE CALLED HERSELF QUEEN SHE ALREADY KNEW WHAT YALL JUST FINDING OUT. THATS THE MARK OF TRUE ROYALTY INDEED

    Nubian Sioux

    @Robin Holbrook many people (me included) have always been fully aware of Dana's plethora of talent, don't assume otherwise.

    Robin Holbrook

    @Nubian Sioux I wasnt replying to your comment but to Davids . So if you knew already that's good . My comment is for those that dont know.

    Nubian Sioux

    @Robin Holbrook my bad , gotcha.

  65. Proud To Be A Feminist

    The voice of an angel.

  66. Al D

    SUPERB!

  67. SUNRISE NEWEARTH

    Beautiful,Queen just beautiful!

  68. Loping Dinosaur

    I will always appreciate Queens talents she is amazing i l9ve The Dana Owens Album it continues to Move me deeply thank you Queen Owens

  69. The Jupiter 2

    This is a beautiful cover version. She has such an excellent voice and loved her as Bessie Smith singing the Blues as well.
    ALSO another great singer with such a smooth soft voice was the late n great Cass Elliott whom sung this song with the original music pop group The Mama's and the Papa's

  70. Era Love

    respect to the Queen, she keeps herself natural and unique 😊

  71. Alfredo Dooley

    A friend put me on to this cover. Not sure how I ever missed it but I am glad I found it. Hard song to cover because it's so iconic people have grand expectations. She nailed it.

  72. Thevolumex

    Is great... but SURE he's heard and imitate that re-writing doin by the great JOSE FELICIANO in 1968...

  73. Frederico Fernandes

    Linda musica para uma lindissima voz

  74. mugensamurai

    and no one mentions the guitar playing....

    Robin Holbrook

    Its haughtily beautiful along with her voice

    Lisa DeBose

    I was just literally thinking how perfect the guitarist was ;)

    George Gisoldi

    I would like to have Musicians and Background singers behind me like that , l can’t afford to pay them.

  75. Ietta Fields

    👑💗💗💗💗💗

  76. Leo Ruiz

    in my opinion, one of the best renditions to such wonderful classic. it really recreated the melancholic sentiment of the original in a completely different dimension.

    Thevolumex

    Yes... but She's has traced completely the 1968 Jose Feliciano arrangments. So is Jose who had recreated the song

  77. Danny Reeves

    nice voice.... bad song choice.

  78. Irene

    Great version!

  79. Eugene Cattouse

    THIS ONE IS MAKING THE ROUNDS. HER VERSION IS PRETTY GOOD.

  80. Big Swing Face

    Well done. Similar to the version by Jose Feliciano.

  81. Ivani Motta

    Linda linda linda!❤

  82. 홍양하

    perfect.

  83. Ob Bop

    BLASPHEMY!!!

  84. Brandon Bowers

    I love Queen Latifah's voice. Is it just me or do you guys hear any similarities between Queen Latifah's and Mary J. Bilge's singing voices? Both great voices indeed, but Queen Latifah's voice seems more polished than Mary J. Blige's voice. No disrespect to Mary J.

    NoireFox

    I would agree with that. MJB is alright, but I think Queen Latifah has a nicer voice (and persona). MJB is a bit rough around the edges, voice-wise and other.

    Charles Joesh

    NoireFox much better all that I was just not cool this album is really cool especially the song at the end of the movie that she was singing it's just a beautiful album it's good to see her growing and maturing once again it's just so

    Jojo Saylor

    Queen voice harmonize more smoothly then mary j I dont hear any similarities between them

  85. Richard Mann

    I agree Bobby Womack's version is excellant but not to say better but different: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpOj_xnON8c

  86. Prince of all Negros

    sorry....but Bobby Womack's version was way better.

    Mick Funny

    Bobby's was the bomb🚨

  87. Anna Davis

    BEST version ever!!

  88. reccono miles

    Fabuleux

  89. anti-EUA islã

    essa mulher é muito bonita nesta foto

  90. KANE77

  91. Fernanda Ferreira

    Hercio Pereira Silva

    Very cool, sweet and warm

  92. Mariya D

    Very nice cover.

  93. Caio Marques

    better than original and better than sia version

  94. Audrey Wood
