lyrics

There’s this old lady works at the corner shop
These days she is all on her own
But we all know her well round this corner block
So you know that she’s never alone

Well round Christmas I dropped by by to see her
make sure she’s doing OK
I brought her a gift just to give her a lift
And this is what she said


I guess it’s Christmas in San Francisco Again
but there’s not place I’d rather be
I like to lay all my cares
at the foot of the tree
and look down from my window
cuz there’s so much to see

Well it’s Christmas in San Francisco Again
and There’s a music you hear in the street
It’s all their hey hi hello’s
and all of those howdoydo’s
I like to think about all those walking feet

and how they wander union square I like to drink it all down
been known to mix some Mariachi from the Mission part of town
how they waltz the Golden Gate it’s just like paradise you see
It’s the festival of lights it’s such a treasure to me

And then she asked me where I would spend Christmas
I told her I would just spend it at home,
because this here city is where I twill be
and it’ll always be home to me
yes home is where I will be,
In San Francisco…


I make the rounds around the town I like to drink it all down
from the Marina to the Sunset this old gal just might be found
And way up on the hill you might see me looking down
I’d never seen her shine so brightly she was just laughing like a clown

And then she asked me where I would spend Christmas
I told her I would just spend it at home,
because this here city is where I will be
and it’ll always be home to me
yes home is where I will be,
In San Francisco…
