||:Dm    Am7   :||

Dm                 Am7
The tissue box is empty
No coffee for my cream
Dogs howl in the alley
Gm7                   Bb    C
Crazy women scream

Some kids shout from their pickup truck
They're stoned on life and beer
Fifty radios playing in the street
But I'm still hardly here

Dm          Am7          C         Dm  C  Dm  C
Exquisitely bored in California
Dm          Am7            C       Dm  C  Dm  C
We take our trouble to the crest
Dm          Am7          Gm7
Exquisitely bored in California
  Bb               A        (C#)     D  
Exquisitely bored, just like all the rest

D        A7  D                    A7   
When the sun shines things'll get moving
D        A7    D           A7
You feel close to the stars
D         A7   D                  A7
There are good times walking in Laguna
D      A7    D           G  A7      Dm
But it rains in my heart

The peasants here are starving
They look like barrels out in space
Pray TV looks like pay TV to me
It's just a curse on the human race

I take a drive up to LA
In my gas-guzzling limousine
There's a whole lotta crazy people up there
Living out a life in sweet ennui

[repeat chorus]

Exquisitely bored in California
We frustration to the crest
Exquisitely bored in California
Exquisitely bored, just like all the rest

When the sun shines things'll get moving
You feel close to the stars
There are good times walking in Laguna
But it rains in my heart

Exquisitely bored in California
We our trouble to the crest
Exquisitely bored in California
Exquisitely bored, just like all the rest
