    I'm not 100% in this but I think it may be 'California Dreaming' originally done by The Mammas and the Papas if I'm not mistaken.

    With the help of metacrawler (and the lyrics you posted):

    CALIFORNIA SOUL
    Fifth Dimension

    Like a sound you hear
    That lingers in your ear
    But you can't forget
    From sundown to sunset
    It's all in the air
    You hear it everywhere
    No matter what you do
    It's gonna get a hold on your
    It's California soul, California soul

    They say the sun comes up every morning
    And if you listen carefully
    The winds that ride on the high time
    Whistle in melody
    And so the people started to sing
    And that's how the surf gave birth untold
    It's California soul California soul

    When you hear the beat
    You wanna pat your feet
    And you've got to move cause
    It's really such a groove
    Puts a brand new thing in your mind
    And you can't go wrong
    Cause you're happy all day long
    It's California soul, California soul

    They had the melody and the beat
    But it still doesn't seem complete
    Until they saw two lovers kissin
    They knew just what was missin
    So happy they were rockin and reelin
    Because that added that lovin feeling
    To California soul, California soul
    Like a sound you hear
    That lingers in your ear
