tell me what you've done to me
can we please take it easy?
it be so lovely like a gloomy afternoon
to just take it easy with you.

Where do you go with your wiles & your woes?
can we please take it slow?

can we please take it easy?
can we please take it easy?

Half of a prank(?) is knowin the ropes
but a tight walkers toes are well worth the show
I got a dime for every song that jives and
wouldn't you know that I'm half broke?

can we please take it easy?
can we please take it easy?

Don't stop talking to me.
When we whisper something sweet
and we're riding home, riding home in the evening
and I'm falling asleep.

Don't stop talking to me.
Don't stop talking to me.
...
Don't stop talking to me.
Don't stop talking to me.

Don't I have it pretty little darling
Don't I have it made?

Don't I have it pretty little darling
Don't I have it made?

    General CommentThis song is gorgeous. But is it about San Francisco, or is San Francisco a metaphor for taking it easy? Or is San Francisco simply the backdrop where all of this is happening? This is where I lean. In essence, the singer is enjoying everyday moments of bliss with her lover while dodging the shadow of loneliness. To be in love in San Francisco!

    General CommentI seemed to always get a very bittersweet vibe from this song, as lovely as it is. The beginning feels of conflict: a begging for the listener to take it easy, the idea of being half broke, having to deal with someone wily and full of woe, and to only beg for a the refuge of a gloomy afternoon. From this, things turn sweet as the heart of a relationship shines through the ephemeral trials of the moment. However one reads it, it's delicious!

    General CommentTo me, I hear "half of heart break is knowing the ropes." Sounds to me like this is handling the end of a relationship, and changes the meaning of the song. It sounds like they don't want it to be over or for anything to change, but the other person has gone off with their wiles and woes.
