somebody told me (letter home from san francisco)

the night is dark
and a cold wind is coming down
i got caught in the rain again
well i guess that’s just my luck
tell me how’ve you been doing
cause i’ve been doing fine
i guess i can’t complain
except i lost a bit of money out in reno
and i lost a bit of my mind drinking too much of your spanish wine

and then somebody told me
you were thinking of me
and somebody told me
you were as pretty as you’ve ever been

well have you found someone who’ll take care of you
i hope he’s everything that i could never be
cause it’s only the best for my girl
oh yeah and did I tell you i found someone too
i paid a hundred dollars to a stripper
a real good looking puerto rican girl
with long dark curls and dark brown eyes
come to think of it she looked a lot like you

and then somebody told me
you were thinking of me
and somebody told me
you were as pretty as you’ve ever been

you know i think of you from time to time
when i’m lying in bed i can still picture your smile
i think about the way you used to kiss me
and tell me every day that you loved me
and your breath was like dew on my lips
and your thighs were like silk for my fingers
you know i wish you all the best
from san francisco

and then somebody told me
you were thinking of me
and somebody told me
you were as pretty as you’ve ever been
and somebody told me yeah
and i still know
you’re just as pretty
as you’ve ever been
