MISS CALIFORNIA
Melissa Etheridge


Yeah
Hey

Ooh, Miss California
What did I do wrong?
It seems I've loved you
For just a little too long

Ooh, you've gone and left me
For some preacher's way
Now you act like you never knew me
And you can't hear a word I say

Miss California
Did I get in your way?
Did the neighbors warn you
What would happen someday?

That a love like mine
Was never good anyway
They said: "Think about your reputation
Before you get carried away"

Don't you know what's good for me
Can be good for you?
Don't you know what's good for me
Can be good for you?
Don't you know what's good for you
Can be good for me, too?
Don't you know what's good for me
Can be good for you?

Miss California
Was I a little too proud?
I'm standing in the streets now
And I'm screaming out loud

You try to shove me in your closet
With your skulls and your bones
Oh, I can be who I am, you see
If I want to do it all alone
Hey... yeah, yeah, yeah

Don't you know what's good for me
Can be good for you?
Don't you know what's good for you
Can be good for me, too?
Don't you know what's good for me
Can be good for you?

Your sweet seduction
Led me far from home
Your self-destruction
Gives me sticks and stones

Your propositions
Make me feel so cold
When the hand that's trying to hold me down
Is the one that I'm trying to hold

I know the hand that's trying to hold me down
Is the one that I'm trying to hold us
The hand that's trying to force me back
Is the one that won't let me go

Miss California
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Miss California
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Miss California
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Miss California
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Ah...
Yeah, yeah, hey
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Yeah...
Don't you know what's good for me?
