Trying to take a picture
When you've got a story to tell
Nice try reading scripture
But you're dragging all of us to hell

At night I lie awake but I refuse
I refuse to take my pills

I'm flying into San Francisco
I'm buying what they're trying to sell
I miss those hippie discos
Can I ring their tie-dyed bells?

Hurry up and wait to cross that Golden Gate Bridge
'Cause I'm worried worried worried worried
Worried that I'm feeling alone

Find me a new Ramona
Say that she's gotta be real
Away with Desdemona
Oh I gotta find a woman to steal

I came by flight to taste that eastern spice
And get my foreign thrills

Christopher Columbus and a New World chick
Some call him a modern hero
But he probably gave her syphilis

In 1493, he took her virginity

So I'll buy me a Winnebago to drive off the edge of the world
I'll call her my Santa Maria
I will love no other girl

I'll conquer those concrete seas
I'll take anything I please

The misty mountain breeze and alpine trees
That we lost so long ago
