A cloud hangs over San Francisco
Nobody is wearing any flowers in their hair
Without a home they move out of the Mission
Gentrification is smothering the air
Many are leaving San Francisco
While Silicon Valley buy and sell off all the land

Take to the streets of Haight-Ashbury
Yuppies taking over with dollar signs in their head
Tearing the heart and soul out of the city
All the music and the culture among the grateful dead
Moving away from San Francisco
Beyond the Golden Gate Bridge to find some other promised land

Look to the future, leave what's behind you
The dream is over, see what's around you
No peace and love in San Francisco
The suits are taking over to buy and sell off all the land
That's why they're leaving San Francisco
