MY ONE TRUE LOVE


Hyde Street and all that noise,
Adults always with their Toys. Russian Hill keeps up with Nob Hill pals,
Outer Mission Chicanos driving on El Camino Real,
Lombard is the path to beautiful Marin,
Daly City, the Freeway, such a sin.
Howard and Harrison, life so true,
Only between Folsom, it lies for you.
Richmond and Sunset, home of Collars, white and blue,
Other such places, Montana and Illinois,
We remember them boys.
I shall always love my Gal.
Though she's a city, not like Cal.
Zoos on Sloat, the elephants on gin,
I can't believe it, the Monkeys got fins.

Larkin and Polk are sisters to view,
Other such places, Virginia, I once knew,
Virginia, Santa lives 50 Gough, a one way rue.
Everybody talking above the Noise,
You have to listen girls and boys.
Other such places, San Diego and Montreal,

Universal studs on universal pills.
Vice on parade, Freeway to sin,
Emperors and Empresses fighting to win.
Remember the Red, White and Blue,
You know them, the Supremes skidoo,
Much grass, adieu Monsieur.
Universal studs making universal Toys,
Chasing make-believe girls as boys.
He's, my dream, He's my Real, Live on
Market and Ellis, below Powell.
El Grande de Queens, fat or thin,
Love it or leave it, the Nixon Grin.
Vermont, the snows made of glue.
Insiders know it's not really true,
Nebraska came to play without even a shoe.
Be good or she might begin to shake,
Adults always, think of Quakes.
Knock, Knock, the same old sin,
Everybody doing the rake.
Remember The Red, White and Blue, Men?
