Song Meaning
Verse 1
You got none in your pockets
You got none in your hands
Well, I don't have to see your eyes
To know what you're not thinkin'
Verse 2
And even when you're not the best
You still try hard as hell
Well, I saw him walkin' in the alley
He stopped to wish me well
And he told me go to California
'Cause that's where it all sells
Verse 3
And I knew this girl from Atlantic City
Full of generality
All she could do is talk and smile
But she got the best of me
Verse 4
And even when you're not the best
You still try hard as hell
Well, I saw her walkin' in the alley
She stopped to wish me well
And she told me go to California
'Cause that's where it all sells
Verse 5
And you find porch on Church Avenue
You're laughin' at me now
'Cause you were standin' when I came here
And you're still standin'
Verse 6
And when you know you're not the best
You hope no one can tell
Well, I saw them layin' in the alley
I stopped to wish them well
And you know I went to California
