Cathie Ryan – The Lights Of San Francisco lyrics

[Verse]
The lights of San Francisco
Shone on the city floor
Joe worked on in the city
‘Til the dawn came around once more

[Verse]
He came from Galway
Came over recently
And Lucy from the USA
Smiled at his naiveté

[Verse]
In the rocky places of his heart
No one had ever seen
Lucy picking cockles
And Lucy planting seeds

[Chorus]
Ohhh oh ohh ohh ohh

[Verse]
Came the marching bands of July
And their silver shadows flew
Ah, two by two, red and blue
Through the summer evening

[Verse]
He said, “All my troubles
Never wander very far
I like to hear music
But I like it on a blue guitar”

[Verse]
“And there is no end to the money
A guy wants to hold in his hand
The sky hung with airplanes
And no peace upon the land”

[Verse]
“And the folks on television
That lie with every breath
And insult you with visions
Of cheap life and cheaper death”

[Chorus]
Ohhh oh ohh ohh ohh

[Verse]
“And there is no home for me now
But I’ll go on loving you
‘Til there is no more music
And the guitar is no longer blue”

Bee Gees – Massachusetts Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Feel I’m going back to Massachusetts
Something’s telling me I must go home

[Chorus]
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
The day I left her standing on her own

[Verse 2]
Tried to hitch a ride to San Francisco
Gotta do the things I wanna do

[Chorus 2]
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
They brought me back to see my way with you

[Verse 3]
Talk about the life in Massachusetts
Speak about the people I have seen

[Chorus 3]
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
And Massachusetts is one place I have seen

[Outro]
(I will remember Massachusetts)
I will remember Massachusetts
(I will remember Massachusetts)
I will remember Massachusetts
(I will remember Massachusetts)
I will remember Massachusetts
Massachusetts

Stu Larsen – Chicago Song (Resolute Album)

She came down from Chicago
Where the mighty winds blow
She was a picture in a frame
And she said
I gotta hit the highway
Are you going my way
She didn’t say her name
And I said
Well I’ve been looking for a girl like you
To come and travel with a boy like me
Won’t you come and sing a little melody
And I’ve been waiting for a partner in crime
To split every dollar and share every dime
Won’t you come and sing a little harmony

Mmmmmmmm
Mmmmmmmm
mmmmmmmmmmmmm
Through Colorado
And on to the next show
We were dancing in the street
It didn’t matter where we were
As long as we’re together
We could always feel the beat
Cause I’ve been looking for a girl like you
To come and travel with a boy like me
Won’t you come and sing a little melody
And I’ve been waiting for a partner in crime
To split every dollar and share every dime
Won’t you come and sing a little harmony
Mmmmmmmm
Mmmmmmmm
Mmmmmmmmmmmmm

We hit San Francisco
And it felt just like home
And we didn’t want to leave
But we got back on the road
And we were following the coast
To see what we could see
I’ve been looking for a girl like you
To come and travel with a boy like me
Won’t you come and sing a little melody
And I’ve been waiting for a partner in crime
To split every dollar and share every dime
Won’t you come and sing a little harmony
And I’ve been looking for a girl like you
To come and travel with a boy like me
Won’t you come and sing a little melody
And I’ve been waiting for a partner in crime
To split every dollar and share every dime
Won’t you come and sing a little harmony
(Harmonica Solo)
Cause I’ve been looking for a girl like you
To come and travel with a boy like me
Won’t you come and sing a little melody
And I’ve been waiting for a partner in crime
To split every dollar and share every dime
Won’t you come and sing a little harmony
Mmmmmmmm
Mmmmmmmm
Mmmmmmmmmmmmm
Down in San Diego
It’s as far is we’ll go
I still don’t know her name

Sammy Davis Jr. – The Rhythm Of Life lyrics

Daddy started out in San Francisco,
Tootin’ on his trumpet loud and mean.
Suddenly a voice said, “Go forth, Daddy.
Spread the picture on a wider screen. “

And the voice said, “Daady, there’s a million pigeons
Ready to be hooked on new religions.
Hit the road, Daddy. Leave your common-law wife.
Spread the religion of the rhythm of life. “

And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet,
Rhythm in your bedroom, rhythm in the street,
Yes, the rhythm of life is a powerful beat.

To feel the rhythm of life,
To feel the powerful beat,
To feel the tingle in your fingers,
To feel the tingle in your feet.

Daddy spread the gospel in Milwaukee,
Took his walkie-talkie to Rocky Ridge,
Blew his way to Canton, then to Scranton,
Till he landed under the Manhattan Bridge.

Daddy was the new sensation, got himself a congregation,
Built up quite an operation down below.
With the pie-eyed piper blowing, while the muscatel was flowing,
All the cats were go, go, going down below.

Daddy was the new sensation, got himself a congregation,
Built up quite an operation down below.
With the pie-eyed piper blowing, while the muscatel was flowing,
All the cats were go, go, going down below.

Flip your wings and fly to Daddy,
Flip your wings and fly to Daddy,
Flip your wings and fly to Daddy,
Fly, fly, fly to Daddy.

Take a dive and swim to Daddy,
Take a dive and swim to Daddy,
Take a dive and swim to Daddy,
Swim, swim, swim to Daddy.

Hit the floor and crawl to Daddy,
Hit the floor and crawl to Daddy,
Hit the floor and crawl to Daddy,
Crawl, crawl, crawl to Daddy.

And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet,
Rhythm in your bedroom, rhythm in the street,
Yes, the rhythm of life is a powerful beat.

To feel the rhythm of life,
To feel the powerful beat,
To feel the tingle in your fingers,
To feel the tingle in your feet.

To feel the rhythm of life,
To feel the powerful beat,
To feel the tingle in your fingers,
To feel the tingle in your feet.

Flip your wings and fly to Daddy,
Take a dive and swim to Daddy,
Hit the floor and crawl to Daddy,
Daddy we got the rhythm of life,
Of life, of life, of life.
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Man!

Tony Bennett – I Left My Heart In San Francisco (Tony Bennett Celebrates 90 Album)

The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gray
The glory that was Rome is of another day
I’ve been terribly alone and forgotten in Manhattan
I’m going home to my city by the Bay
I left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill, it calls to me
To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars
The morning fog may chill the air, I don’t care
My love waits there in San Francisco
Above the blue and windy sea
When I come home to you, San Francisco
Your golden sun will shine for me

Emily Kinney – Michael lyrics

[Verse 1]
I never could believe in God
But always willing to give it a shot
If there is such thing as magic human souls
Well, then mine looks a lot like Michael
Yes, my soul looks a lot like Michael

[Verse 2]
Manhattan baby, drop-out, drug abuse
Naively feel I’ve walked around in his shoes
He looked so thirsty when my heart is full
So, I pour every drop out to Michael
Yes, I pour out my soul to Michael

[Chorus]
Oh, San Francisco savior
Do you remember me?
In a backseat on a golden bridge
Kissing

Let’s forget about the tears I’ve cried
And let’s hold on to that first night

[Verse 3]
Under the table he took my hand
We sat across from the Green Day band
All of those boys but I could only see his face
Think how me and Michael, we are just the same
Yes, me and Michael, we are just the same

[Bridge]
I might’ve had a boy, and he a girlfriend
But on nights like those nights, rules always bent
I’d give up anything to feel understood
I’d give up anything to feel understood
I’d give up anything to feel understood
I’d give up and run away if Michael would

[Chorus]
Oh, San Francisco savior
Do you remember me?
Oh, San Francisco savior
Berkeley’s been breathing
Oh, San Francisco savior
Please remember me
In a backseat on a golden bridge
Kissing

[Outro]
Let’s forget about the tears I’ve cried
And let’s hold on to that first night
