	(Spoken:)

	This 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, USA
	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

	bass:

	 Em [N.C.]   [slower]
	 v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v
