San Francisco

Scott McKenzie











If you're going to San Francisco

Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair

If you're going to San Francisco

You're 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

There's a whole generation with a new explanation

People in motion people in motion

For those who come to San Francisco

Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair

If you come to San Francisco

Summertime will be a love-in there

If you come to San Francisco

Summertime will be a love-in there


San Franciscan Night

Harpo











Strobe lights beam, creates dreams

Walls move, minds do, too

On a warm San Franciscan night

Old child, young child feel all right

On a warm San Franciscan night

Angels sing, leather wings

Jens of blue, Harley Davidsons too

On a warm San Franciscan nights

Young angel, old angel feel all right

On a warm San Franciscan night

I wasn't born there

Perhaps I'll die there

There's no place left to go

San Francisco

A cop's face is filled with hate

Heavens above he's on a street called love

When will they ever learn?

Young cop, old cop feel all right

On a warm San Franciscan night

I wasn't born there

Perhaps I'll die there

'Cos there's no place left to go

San Francisco

Young child, old child feel all right

On a warm San Franciscan night

Young angel, old angel feel all right

On a warm San Franciscan night

Coming Around Again

Carly Simon











Baby sneezes

Mommy pleases

Daddy breezes in

So good on paper

So romantic

But so bewildering

I know nothing stays the same

But if you're willing to play the game

It's coming around again

So don't mind if I fall apart

There's more room in a broken heart

You pay the grocer

Fix the toaster

Kiss the host Good-bye

Then you break a window

Burn the Soufflé

Scream a lullaby

I know nothing stays the same

But if you're willing to play the game

It's coming around again

So don't mind if I fall apart

There's more room in a broken heart

And I believe in love

But, what else can I do?

I'm so in love with you

I know nothing stays the same

But if you're willing to play the game

It will be coming around again

Baby sneezes (I believe in love)

Mommy pleases (I believe in love)

Daddy breezes in (I believe in love)

I know nothing stays the same

But if you're willing to play the game

It will be coming around again

I do believe

I do believe

I believe in love...

Coming around again

Coming around again

Nothing stays the same

But if you're willing to play the game

It will be coming around again

I believe in love (I believe in love)

I believe in love (I believe in love)

And it's coming around again


I Just Called To Say I Love You

Stevie Wonder











No New Year's Day to celebrate

No chocolate covered candy hearts to give away

No first of spring

No song to sing

In fact here's just another ordinary day

No April rain

No flowers bloom

No wedding Saturday within the month of June

But what it is, is something true

Made up of these three words that I must say to you

I just called to say I love you

I just called to say how much I care

I just called to say I love you

And I mean it from the bottom of my heart

No summer's high

No warm July

No harvest moon to light one tender August night

No autumn breeze

No falling leaves

Not even time for birds to fly to southern skies

No Libra sun

No Halloween

No giving thanks to all the Christmas joy you bring

But what it is, though old so new

To fill your heart like no three words could ever do

I just called to say I love you

I just called to say how much I care, I do

I just called to say I love you

And I mean it from the bottom of my heart

I just called to say I love you

I just called to say how much I care, I do

I just called to say I love you

And I mean it from the bottom of my heart, of my heart,

Of my heart

I just called to say I love you

I just called to say how much I care, I do

I just called to say I love you

And I mean it from the bottom of my heart, of my heart, of my heart



Lemon Tree

Peter Paul And Mary











When I was just a lad of ten, my father said to me,

Come here and learn a lesson from the lovely lemon tree.

Don't put your faith in love, my boy, my father said to me,

I fear you'll find that love is like the lovely lemon tree.

Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet

But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.

Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet

But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.

Beneath the lemon tree one day, my love and I did a lie

A girl so sweet that when she smiled the sun rose in the sky.

We passed that summer lost in love beneath the lemon tree

The music of her laughter hid my father's words from me:

Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet

But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.

Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet

But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.

One day she left without a word. She took away the sun.

And in the dark she left behind, I knew what she had done.

She'd left me for another, it's a common tale but true.

A sadder man but wiser now I sing these words to you:

Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet

But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.

Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet

But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.


Enjoy it!
