I left my heart in San Francisco
I left my heart, people, in San Francisco
High on the hill, at the Golden Gate, 'cross the bay,
in San Francisco, on the hill, the mornin' fog,
and the cool, cool night
That's where, I wanna be, San Francisco
my heart up in New York City,
I've been to Chicago,
but found no place, like San Francisco,
with the cable car, high, high, on the hill.
In the mornin' fog, the evening breeze,
the cool, cool night, is where I wanna be
Oh yeah. Oh yeah.
Work, work people, tell me about it, now
work out, work out
I got the blues for San Francisco
Yes, yes, yes, yes!
My heart is there, high, on the hill,
right down by the Golden Gate, 'cross the bay,
that's where I wanna be
I left my heart right there, in San Francisco
with the mornin' fog and the cool, cool night, the cable cars on the hill.
That's where I wanna be people,
my heart is there, my heart is there.
