San Francisco


I never will forget Jeanette Macdonald
Just to think of her, it gives my heart a pang
I never will forget how that brave Jeanette
Just stood there in the ruins and sang
And sang

San Francisco, open your golden gate
You'll let nobody wait outside your door
San Francisco, here is your wonderin' one
Sayin' I wonder no more

Other places only make me love you best
Tell me you're the one in all the golden west

San Francisco, I'm comin' home again
Never to roam again
Never to roam again

San Francisco, right when I arrive
I really come alive
And you will laugh to see me
Perpendicular, hanging on a cable car

San Francisco, let me beat my feet
Up and down Market Street
I'm gonna climb the hill
Just to watch it get dark
From the top of the mark

There's Brooklyn Bridge, London Bridge,
And the bridge of San Louis Bay
But the only bridge that's a real gone bridge
Is the bridge across the Bay

To San Francisco
I'm coming home again
Never to roam again my God
San Francisco
I don't mean Frisco
San Francisco, here I come
