Take me to my city by the bay.

马克吐温说,最寒冷的冬天是旧金山的夏天.

虽然似乎是他失恋时说出的话语,不过去旧金山的时候也确实听闻过当地天气多变的说法.

就像这个混杂了各种气息的城市本身一样.

坡度很大的街道总是大片的取景圣地.

因为久负盛名的Gay parade,当地人自己都把San Francisco Bay叫作 'San Francisco Gay'.

拥有走在科技尖端的硅谷.

却也是狂热而不羁的The Beat Generation精神的温床.

这首歌里就有这样旧金山的感觉.

'I BEEN HIGH, I BEEN LOW.

I BEEN YES AND I BEEN OH HELL NO.

I BEEN ROCK'N ROLL AND DISCO.'

这样的句子就像带着听歌的人坐上旧金山的Cable car,在坡形街道间开上开下.

所以The Beat Generation的代表杰克凯鲁亚克说,旧金山总能给你的信念带来鼓励.

无论你要正能量还是负能量都好,旧金山全部给你.

所以歌者也唱道,Won't you save me San Francisco ?

歌词:

I used to love the Tenderloin

Till I made some tender coin

Then I met some ladies from Marin

We took the highway to the One

Up the coast to catch some sun

They left me with this blisters on my skin.

Don't know what I was on, but I think it grows in Oregon

So I kept on going, going, gone, right through

I drove into Seattle rain, fell in love then missed the train

That could a took me right back home to you

I been high

I been low

I been yes, and I been oh hell no

I been rock 'n roll and disco

Won't you save me San Francisco

Woohoo oh

Every day's so caffeinated

I wish they were Golden Gated

Fillmore couldn't feel more miles away

So, wrap me up return to sender

Let's forget this 5 year bender

Take me to my city by the Bay

I never knew all that I had

Now Alcatraz don't sound so bad

At least they'd have a hella fine merlot

If I could wish upon a star

I would hitch a cable car

To the one place that I'll always call my home

I been high

I been low

I been yes, and I been oh hell no

I been rock 'n roll and disco

Won't you save me San Francisco

I been up

I been down

I been so damn lost since you're not around

I been reggae and calypso

Won't you save me San Francisco

To tell you the truth

I miss everything...everything

It's a wild, wide, beautiful world

But there's a wide-eyed girl back there

And she means everything...everything

I been stop

I been go

I been yes and I been oh hell no

I been rock 'n roll and disco

Won't you save me San Francisco

I been up

I been down

I been so damn lost since you're not around

I been reggae and calypso

Won't you save me San Francisco

Woohoo oh

Won't you save me San Francisco

woohoo oh

Won't you save me San Francisco
