West Covina (song)
Performer(s): Rebecca Bunch — First Appearance: ""Josh Just Happens to Live Here""

To be clear, I didn't move here just for Josh, I just needed a change, 'Cause to move here for Josh, now that'd be strange!
— Rebecca Bunch, "Josh Just Happens to Live Here"

West Covina was a song sung by Rebecca Bunch after immediately declining a promotion at her New York City law firm of Sampson & Saunders. She left her life in the Big Apple behind to impulsively moved to the west coast hometown of her ex-boyfriend Josh Chan. The song was later reprised twice as duets Rebecca had with Paula Proctor and later with Josh Chan. Its first appearance was in the Season One episode 'Josh Just Happens to Live Here!". The song is track number 2 on the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Original Television Soundtrack (Season 1 - Vol.1).

The song with lyricsEdit

West Covina - "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend"


Rebecca Bunch:
West Covina! California!
In my soul I feel a fire
'Cause Im headed for the pride of the inland Empire.
My life's about to change, oh my gosh!
'Cause I'm hopefully, desperately in love with...
West Covina!

Good morning, sir!
See the sparkle of the concrete ground!
Here the whoosh of the bustling town!
What a feeling of love in my gut,
I'm going faster than the middle school's program was cut!
People done at Chez Applebee's,

Cash For Gold Woman:

Rebecca Bunch:
And this guy seems to smile at me!

Advertisement Baby:

Rebecca Bunch:
It's all new but I have no fear!

Mexican Lawyer:

Rebecca Bunch:
And also by coincidence Josh
Just happens to be here.

What a cool looking anime wig
And I've never seen a pretzel this big!
It's my destiny that much is clear,

(Please welcome Destiny!)

Rebecca Bunch:
And also this guy Josh just happens to be here.
Is he here? He's not here.
To be clear, I didn't move here just for Josh, I just needed a change,
'Cause to move here for Josh, now that'd be strange,
But don't get me wrong, if he asks for a date,
I would totally be like, "That sounds great."
Did it sound cool when I said, "That sounds great?"
Okay, how about now: "That sounds great."

Yes, I heard of West Covina from Josh,
But I didn't move here because of Josh.
Do you get those things are different?

(No hablo ingles.)

Rebecca Bunch:
Entiendes que son diferentes?
Look everyone stop giving me the shakedown,
I am not having a nervous-

West Covina! California!
West Covina! California!

Hear the band playing in my heart,
My new life is about to start.
True happiness is so near...

Aw, you guys are good, bye bye.

(Sorry kids, budget cuts, tuba and horns, no more band.)

Rebecca Bunch:
And also by coincidence, so random, just by chance
Who'd a thunk it, so remarkable and weird, right? It's so great
That this guy Josh just happens to be here!

Only two hours from the beach!
