lyrics

Gilman and I-80, I was driving my car
Fifty-seven minutes, hadn’t gotten too far
Everybody’s headin’ for the beach or the lake
A concert or a ballgame or a naked parade
It’s summer by the bay, summer by the bay
Traffic is a hassle every inch of the way
In every direction, every time of the day
It’s summer by the bay, summer by the bay

Haight and Buena Vista, I was ridin’ my bike
Along come Mister Mellow with a strain that I like
Annie in the intersection walkin’ her dog
I turned around and everyone was lost in the fog
It’s summer by the bay, summer by the bay
The afternoons are colder than the evenings, they say
Be sure to dress in layers and you’ll be okay
It’s summer by the bay, summer by the bay

Gentrified in Jingletown, sweatin’ the rent
Too much month remaining when the money is spent
I’m sittin’ here in limbo ’til I make it big
I told my dog to drop the bone and find us a gig
It’s summer by the bay, summer by the bay
I can’t afford to move out and I can’t afford to stay
There ain’t no place on Earth I’d rather live anyway
It’s summer by the bay, summer by the bay
