(Spoken:)

This following program is dedicated to the city and people of San
    Francisco
Who may not know it, but they are beautiful - and so is their city
This is a very personal song, so if the viewer cannot understand it -
    particularly those of you who are European residents - save up
    all your bread and fly Trans-Love Airways to San Francisco, USA
Then maybe you'll understand the song
It will be worth it - if not for the sake of this song
But for the sake of your own peace of mind

bass:

Cop's face is filled with haight
Heavens above, he's on a street called Love
When will they ever learn
Old cop, young cop feel all right
On a warm San Franciscan Night

Bridge 2:

The children are cool
They don't raise fools
It's an American dream
Includes Indians, too
