"16th & Valencia, Roxy Music" as written by and Noah Georgeson Devendra Banhart....
I don't know where to go
'Cause I know where to go
Well I know where not to go
'Cause I know where to go

Tonight we're gonna find our lover
Tonight we're gonna find our man

Riding six white horses
Wearing them pressed blue jeans
Gonna behead the king
And give the queen everything

'Cause tonight we're gonna find our lover
â??Cause tonight we're gonna find our man
We're gonna find our

We don't know where to go
We know where to go
We don't know what to do
We know what to do
We don't know where to go
We know where to go
We don't know anymore

I know I look high
But I'm just free dancing
I know I look hypnotized
But I'm just table tapping

'Cause tonight we ain't gonna find our lovers
Tonight we ain't gonna find our man

We don't know where to go
We know where to go
We don't know what to do
We know what to do
We don't know where to go
We know where to go
We don't know anymore
We don't know anymore

    General CommentAfter living in sf for 3 years, mister Banhart and I know exactly where to go for some action. At the Dirty D bars, Delirium and Dalva at 16th and valencia , "riding 6 white horses" (hipsters on there DIY bikes) . A few other bands such as third eye blind talk about this area, but Banhart nails the contemporary mind set of these 20 somethings having nothing to do, but hang out at a sweaty dive bar looking for love, but never really finding any kind of real love here.

    General CommentI think the missing lyrics are:

    "We don't know where to go (We know where to go)
    Like some Eskimos
    We don't know what to do (We know what to do)
    I've seen Katmandu
    We don't know where to go (We know where to go)"

    It may not be "Like some Eskimos," but I'm pretty sure I heard "Eskimos." Same with the "Katmandu" line.
