The San Fran Dreamin Story
San Francisco you are but seven miles wide,
filled with history, now bustling and alive,
with your 50 hills and the Golden Gate by your side,
the Warriors, Giants and 49ers rule and thrive.
Your cable cars are a moving historic landmark,
and Golden Gate out acres NYC’s Central Park.
The originator of the fortune cookie and Santa Con,
on your stages many great musicians have rocked on.
No matter where they played and roamed,
Jefferson Airplane, Santana and Garcia all called you home.
Yerba Buena they would say, now San Francisco today,
has the oldest Chinatown and largest Japantown in the USA.
It was in San Fran under the hearts and wings of doves,
the flower children grew and flourished in the summer of love.
Here the rainbow flag was created and first flown with pride,
Ginsberg howled and Ferlinghetti and the City Lights shined.
The sea lion’s chose your pier 39 to laze and dine,
techies built a valley and webbed out worldwide.
beats, bytes, movements and rhymes, so many storied times,
sweet San Fran Dreamin’ you make my heart chime.
