San Francisco -back catalog-song-o day!


We are re-releasing California Years!!

I have not one, but two, videos for the song San Francisco. One was at the studio - we were all pretending to track, but we had a good time doing it. Check out Don Was, Dave Palmer, Mark Goldenberg, and one of the best drummers ever- Jim Keltner ( Ringo, Lennon, George, Nilsson, Dylan, etc)! Hear the whole record here: here

Here's a completely different take - with director Margaret Cho as the masseuse. There is also a bunch of great San Francisco characters, including my pal, Princess Donna. I have a shag. Enjoy!

San Francisco (Sobule/Eaton)

She shuts the door behind me, waits for me to get undressed She ask if I need water, I can barely understand her I think she asked me what I do and I said that I'm a singer She laughs and claps her hands And then she begins And she sings: "I like to go to San Francisco I like to go Put flowers in my hair I like to go to San Francisco I like to meet Some people there" She looks just like a sparrow, but she's strong just like a wrestler She kneads and pulls and climbs on top It hurts, but I will try to take it Ask her if she's ever been Been to San Francisco She tells me that she can't leave They won't let her leave She sings: "I like to go to San Francisco I like to go Put flowers in my hair I like to go to San Francisco I like to meet Some people there" And in Golden Gate Park She'll throw a Frisbee She'll bring a dog And she'll meet a boy And they'll fall in love And she'll feel so free Still walk on his back Wonder 'bout the place I'm in and how they treat the girls I know that it's legitimate But still it makes me wonder She gets up to leave And I put back on my clothes I tip her well, she bows to me I really hope one day she gets to go "...To San Francisco I like to go Put flowers in my hair I like to go to San Francisco I like to meet Some people there" (Some people there) La la la la la la la la La la la la
