This is a re-recorded version of this song originally released in January 2014.


San Francisco
science fiction
so fun -
Speedy, speedy -- freaky tweaky!

A sang-froid
so fine, so fine, so fine!

Met the nicest social worker
Just my face/in the mirror
See the lines, feel the chrome,
getting followed by a robot cop
Canned laughter on the train PA --
A secret message just for me!

Got Herb Caen's head in a jar
Guyana trip - went way too far
Last days of the Barbary Coast
-- now you're shanghaied to outer space!

San Francisco's still, still doomed [STILL DOOMED, SO DOOMED]
if you can't pay for a room [GET A ROOM, GET A ROOM]
Stay for a while, but move out soon [SO SOON, TOO SOON]
San Francisco's still, still doomed [STILL DOOMED, SO DOOMED]

I gotta luxury
Had a subsidized bohemia
I gotta getta
getta job
I gotta, gotta
so many memories

Seismic shock '89
Hear those hippies moan and whine
Dead ghosts rattle City Hall
Slick Willie missed the call!


from 3 song 45, released November 2, 2015
