The Mamas & Papas lip synching "California Dreamin'" at The Hollywood Palace.
"California Dreamin'" is a song written by John Phillips and Michelle Phillips and was first recorded by Barry McGuire. However, the best-known version is by the Mamas & the Papas, who sang backup on the original version and released it as a single in 1965.
I made a new stereo mix. No sounds were added, it is the plain song.
The instrumental part was cut out in this tv performance, therefore the video has some pictures added to fill the instrumental part. The video is taken from Youtube; someone did a nice job, so I decided it deserves a good stereo sound... though I must admit I accidentally found a way to 'enhance' the stereo sound.

CALIFORNIA DREAMIN'
(John and Michelle Phillips)

all the leaves are brown (all the leaves are brown)
and the sky is grey (and the sky is grey)
I've been for a walk (I've been for a walk)
on a winter's day (on a winter's day)
I'd be safe and warm (I'd be safe and warm)
If I was in L.A. (if I was in L.A.)

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)

California dreamin' (California dreamin')
on such a winter's day

all the leaves are brown (all the leaves are brown)
and the sky is grey (and the sky is grey)
I've been for a walk (I've been for a walk)
on a winter's day (on a winter's day)
if I didn't tell her (if I didn't tell her)
I could leave today (I could leave today)

California dreamin' (California dreamin')
on such a winter's day (California dreamin')
on such a winter's day (California dreamin')
on such a winter's day
