"San Francisco" as written by John Edmund Andrew Phillips and Paul Hutsch....
If you'e going to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you'e going to San Francisco
You'e gonna meet some gentle people there

For those who come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there
In the streets of San Francisco
Gentle people with flowers in their hair

All across the nation
Such a strange vibration
People in motion, people in motion
There' a whole generation
With a new explanation

All of those who come to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you're going to sneaky peepshows
Summertime is nice with wild wild hair

    General CommentYou got the last part wrong, it's "If you're going to Stinky's peepshow." It's taken from a line in NOFX's "San Francisco Fat."

    General CommentLame. ^. This is a lovely song, dreamy, takes you back...definantly underrated and in a way disgraced by lame covers.
    What a nice song.

    General CommentI love the way the intro is the same as Bad Religion's "Stranger Than Fiction."
