    I remember doing the Time Warp, Drinking those moments when The blackness would hit me and the void would be calling Let's do the time warp again...
    Visiting the past... u're in the sixties and all the leaves are brown :)

    The Mamas & the Papas (credited as The Mama's and the Papa's on the debut album cover) were a leading vocal group of the 1960s. They were one of the North American groups to maintain widespread success during the British Invasion (others being The Byrds, The Beach Boys, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Buffalo Springfield, Simon & Garfunkel and The Lovin' Spoonful). The group recorded and performed from 1965 to 1968, releasing five albums and achieving ten hit singles; while they were active for a relatively short time, some group members pointed to their limited time in the spotlight as a reason why they had loyal fans.

    LYRICS
    All the leaves are brown
    And the sky is grey
    I went for a walk
    On a winters day
    Id be safe and warm
    If I was in l.a.
    California dreamin
    On such a winters day

    I stopped into a church (stopped into a church)
    I passed along the way (passed along the way)
    You know, I got down on my knees (got down on my knees)
    And I pretend to pray (I pretend to pray)
    Oh, the preacher likes the cold (preacher likes the cold)
    He knows Im gonna stay (knows Im gonna stay)
    Oh, california dreamin (california dreamin)
    On such a winters day

    All the leaves are brown (the leaves are brown)
    And the sky is grey (and the sky is grey)
    I went for a walk (I went for a walk)
    On a winters day (on a winters day)
    If I didnt tell her (if I didnt tell her)
    I could leave today (I could leave today)

    Oh, california dreamin (california dreamin)
    On such a winters day (california dreamin)
    On such a winters day (california dreamin)
    On such a winters day (california dreamin)
    On such a winters day
