Go if you wanna go
But I won't follow, just so you know
Leave if you wanna leave
But I won't be here when you come home

I'm gonna move to San Francisco
Look up some old friends
I'm gonna get me a navy pea coat
And a old Mercedes Benz

This old town keeps shrinking
There's too many people in my junk
I'm gonna do a lot of drinking
'Cause it don't hurt when I'm drunk

Go if you wanna go
But I won't follow, just so you know
Leave if you wanna leave
But I won't be here when you come home

I'm gonna rent me an old Victorian
Down in the Lower Haight
I'm gonna get me an old accordion
And play for the tourists on the golden gate

I'm gonna plant a little garden
Paint my bathroom blue
I'm gonna try real hard to get over you

Here in the city life doesn't move so slow
There's plenty of good people I know
Up in north beach they drink spicy Italian liqueur
Down on market there's a lot of hobos and the hustlers

Down in Hayes Valley there's a lot of real good restaurants
Deep in the tenderloin you can have anything you want
Over in the mission it's always a sunny day
And it's a real good baseball town but my team is across the bay

Go if you wanna go
But I won't follow, just so you know
Leave if you wanna leave
But I won't be here when you come home
When you come home
