The Lyrics

In San Francisco this week, one of the big news stories is about all the hopeless people in Golden Gate Park. Seems there is an abundance of needles and feces to be found around all the encampments, and residents nearby are demanding that the city do something about it. I say stop feeding them, and they will go back to Los Angeles where they came from.
I know you
You know that I’m homeless, too
Drinking beer, don’t have a ‘loo

Well let me tell that it smells so bad
It’s lookin’ really sad
It really smells so bad to live where I do
With needles and poo

People say, “get those bums from our park”
“We can’t go out after it’s dark”

Well let me tell you that it stinks so bad
The druggies little pad
It’s gonna smell so bad, even in the day
Make them go ‘way, and let me cross on safely through
They do everything that they want to
We moved them before, please move them again
We can’t let them come back in here
Please just go
Please just go

Make them go
Make them go
Smells so bad
Go ‘way it smells so bad
Don’t beg you smell so bad
In Golden Gate Park

Five points for saying they came from L.A., minus one for crediting Linda Ronstadt, who's like the AFLAC duck in that she covers everything and has an annoying voice, instead of Little Anthony. But if you really want something in San Francisco that stinks to go to L.A., you've got it: That's where Barry Bonds is right now.
