Transamerica Pyramid Single

1.
It’s square at the bottom and narrow at the tip Like the slave workers built for the pharaohs of Egypt The descendants of the Mayans and the Inca(n)s Drive by in the their Lincolns that they bought with the coffee that we sipped On the back of a dollar there’s an eye that looks down on the squalor that we never knew ‘Cause the Transamerica Pyramid is where I first met you The Transamerica Pyramid is where I first met you There’s a bridge into town with tall orange spires That from all around the globe people come to admire And there's thousands of them every day who cross over the bay By car or foot on their sneakers or tires Everyone’s sons and daughters use it to cross over the water that’s sparkling blue But the Transamerica Pyramid is what brought me to you The Transamerica Pyramid is what brought me to you There's a route through the Sunset where all the Barracudas And the Mustangs having fun get going down Judah With the slant sixes purring like the dance mixes during their way out of the sticks where they're setting the mood of The feeling of the street where the boys and girls meet And no car without Mopar will do But the Transamerica Pyramid is what drove me to you The Transamerica Pyramid is where I first met you

about

We love San Francisco, from the pyramid to the parrots to the piratey pitchers. We only hope that one day San Francisco will love us back.
