California dreamin' (California dreamin') On such a winter's day. Stopped into a church I passed along the way Well, I got down on my knees (got down on my knees) And I pretend to pray (I pretend to pray) You know the preacher like the cold (preacher like the cold) He knows I'm gonna stay (knows I'm gonna stay)  . The words for the misheard line in California Dreaming, in black and white, are "The preacher lights the coals".
