Transamerica Pyramid (Single Mix)

from Transamerica Pyramid Single by The Corner Laughers



A summery, sun-shiny feel-good anthem for San Francisco, because it needs it.


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
