What's wrong with the Lyrics?

"I've been all around this great big world
To Paris and to Rome
And I've never found a place that I
Could really call my own
But there's one place where I know
The sun is shining endlessly
And it's calling me across the sea
So I must get back to San Bernadino".

Aah, Jeff Christie made a mistake and I shared the same mistake for decades. When I drove on the streets of San Bernardino, I listened the music and noticed that the name of the town is wrong, I had believed Christie and now one of my legends dropped off!

The error was in record's labels and it was detected too late to be recalled and the labels corrected. And guess what, the same error is in the Finnish cover single by Arto Sotavalta.

A pub fact

I have understood the this is a pub fact: no one in San Bernardino knows the song. It's easy to understand when Christie is singing of San Bernadino and you can't find that named city from the globe.
