The Lyrics

Really awesome guitar and drum beat intro (stolen from AFI!!)

As I walk through the valley of sorrows to the bay,
The friends who chilled right next to me
have ran themselves away,
I've smoked enough now
to know the beautiful things
in here are not the same
I've done enough now
to know this beautiful place
isn't everything they say

I heard
That males come disguised
It's a city of homos
and I'm walking from the light

In my back is a shiver
I see a man dressed in drag
and, I swear, it makes me quiver

I was straight, a beginner
I've done a lot of things wrong but
I swear it's gay fever

Like a misguided son
I was left all alone
Now I'm bumming money to buy a comb

In my back is a shiver
It makes me quiver
It makes me quiver!

You're from a small town
You're gonna grow up fast
Underneath the Haight
Down in Castro Street
In the bars and clubs
You try to change your life

To the praying mother and the worried father
Let your gay son go
If he comes back, he'll stay forever
And if he won't, you'll know

They say
that gay is a wrong way of life
Like the city of fairies
He's walking towards the light

Back down to the Castro
I have really nice place
and my roommates are much hotter

Did I mention that they are male
I've done a lot of things wrong
but I swear I'm a homo

Like the misguided son
I was out on my own
But now I've finally found my home

Back down to the Castro
I'm a homo
I'm a homo!

Back down to the Castro
(Now my home!)

Back down to the Castro
(Now my home!)
I wanna get a boyfriend

(Now my home!)

(Now my home!)

(cool guitar solo in background)

Back down to the Castro
(Now my home!)
I wanna get a boyfriend

Back down to the Castro
(Now my home!)
I wanna get a boyfriend

Back down to the Castro
(Now my home!)
I wanna get a boyfriend

I confess I am gay now
I see the man in my life
and I wanna be his lover!
