The following program is dedicated to the city and people of San Francisco, who may not know it but they are beautiful and so is their city. This is a very personal song, so if the viewer cannot understand it, particularly those of you who are European residents save up all your bread and fly trans love airways to San Francisco, U.S.A., then maybe you'll understand the song. It will be worth it, if not for the sake of this song but for the sake of your own peace of mind.
Cop's face is filled with hate Heavens above he's on a street called love When will they ever learn Old cop young cop feel alright On a warm San Francisco night The children are cool They don't raise fools It's an American dream Includes Indians too
"San Francisco Night" was a 1967 Top Ten hit for the British rock/pop group known as the Animals. But 1967, the only remaining member of the Animals that recorded the #1 1964 version of "The House Of The Rising Sun" was lead singer and songwriter, Eric Burdon. "San Francisco Night" is Eric Burdon's romantizing his visit to San Francisco during the 1967, "Summer Of Love". Besides San Francisco mentioned in the title and the lyrics also mentioned in the tune in the first spoken by Burdon verse (as though Burdon is a television announcer) is the continent of Europe (European) and the country of the United States of America (U.S.A.) and in the fourth and final versed the continent of America (American). The first and fourth verse I have transcribed upabove.
