SAN FRANCISCO

If you're going to San Francisco
be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you're going to San Francisco,
you're gonna meet some gentle people there

For those who come to San Francisco
summertime will be a loving there
In the streets of San Francisco
gentle people with flowers in their hair
All across the nation such a strange vibration
People in motion
There's a whole generation with the new explanation
People in motion. People in motion

For those who come to San Francisco
be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you come to San Francisco
summertime will be a loving there
If you come to San Francisco
summertime will be a loving there
