Scott McKenzie - San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair) Lyrics




If you're going to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you're going to San Francisco
You're gonna meet some gentle people there

For those who come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there
In the streets of San Francisco
Gentle people with flowers in their hair

All across the nation
Such a strange vibration
People in motion

There's a whole generation
With a new explanation
People in motion
People in motion

For those who come to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there

If you come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in there

    San Francisco the fashion hippy of that time great song and to you Scott Maquenzie number one on the radio of Costa Rica golden years thanks

  3. Tony Di Paolo

    Kind of a commercialization of the real deal. Even back then it was. No worse than the Beatles. Both have great songs.

  4. Carolina Hernández

    Me encanta

  5. Shadow Man

    If you're going to San Franshitco, be sure to wear some poop in your hair
    If you're going to San Franshitco, you're going to meet some leftist crackheads there.

    I was so lucky to have been part of the time and it still lives on inside of me. Whatever happen to others that might or might not have enjoyed the time and are now so incredibly detached from what the movement stood for; like Trump, Barr, O'Connell and so on...

  28. 827dusty

    Great song about the "Hippie and Flower children" era, of the late 1960s, but these days I wouldn't want to go anywhere near that filthy place. It's a toilet Bowl.

  29. Frank Rogers

    Before we got invaded from across the border, now the streets are filled with the homeless while illeagals occupy there former homes!

    That was the time when Rhodesia was a fantastic country with fantastic people. Sad the world powers messed it up really badly.

  34. Michael Slater

    This song along with "Sounds of Silence" reminds me of my first love. I still have fond memories of her and the good times we had even though we werent together for too long. My respect to her and her sisters.

    questions?

    Bill Gund

    Sad, but true.

    lucas07700

    @VenusOn Fire mainly ridiculous high rent, huge homeless population, dirty streets, gentrification. Still a beautiful city, though.

    VenusOn Fire

    @lucas07700 I understand. I'm from Europe, and I have heard many people saying San Francisco is extremely expensive.

  42. Doc Tar

    If you go to San Francisco now, be sure to wear your hazmat suit. Endless needles, homeless and human poop in the streets.

    Before thousands of innocent people jumped out from the golden gate bridge. They should have read chinese fortune cookie that said "you would be happy someday again as war stopped and peace came back like your life must not be ruined."

    if youre going to San Franshitsco
    be sure to wear a boot in your feet
    if youre going to San Franshitsco
    youre gonna meet some drug addict people there

    for those who come to San Fanshitsco
    tiptoeing will be a love-in there
    in the sthreeits of San Franshitsco
    weirdo people with carts in their hands

  55. Christopher Bell

    That movement is inexorably linked with the city today and the perpetual nostalgia for that time has made the property values skyrocket over the years so in the end the hippies were overwhelmingly positive for San Francisco.

  56. Reina Colibrí

    I love you ❤💋❤💋

  57. Kaal

    It's an absolute fucking mess now.

    Nello Palacios

    merry Xms saturnite. cheers from toronto!!!

  59. BORA AKAD

    Time it was, and what a time it was... (Simon & Garfunkel) yes, what a great time was it..

  60. davevanbonk

    Youse ever notice how lousy the "middle eight" of possibly every John Phillips song is? I mean, this one is up there with the champions, lol. My theory is that some genius junkie pal of John's wrote these lovely verses and showed John who took note, and then junkie pal dropped dead, and talentless John had to come up with "middle eights". Hence the beastly bridges, middle eights, choruses or whatever in all John's songs.

    Mar Cal

    Kathy, you nailed it THE GOOD OL DAYS...I grew up on those days as well. Nothing today compares to t hat decade, best of times, best music, when music was real

  68. Ryan Rohlick

    please hippie boomers push this today

  69. Michael Hartley

    What an amazing city San Francisco is, I'm so glad I picked this destination as my 1st holiday.. What an experience.. So greatful to have been here, who knows, I may revisit 1 day..

  70. Bra SSJ Terricola

    What a song I have heard, true times of hippies to remember and that we women are more beautiful with the flowers in our hair.

  71. FogOdd

    Прекрасно.

  72. Władysław Poproch

    Ta, piosenka przypomina mi jak uszylem sobie sam jeansy typu dzwony i przenosi mnie w odległe czasy, które były piękna chwilą mego zycia

  73. Sean Callahan

    By the way, the hippies were right. I'm a punk rock kid, grew up with all the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Creem, Black Sabbath, Bob Dylan, but my teen years were Dead Kennedy's, DOA, TSOL, Black Flag, Wasted Youth. etc. But the hippies were right. They were the next half-generation older than me. My brother 13 years older than me, taught me how to surf at 7 years old, got my Hendrix and Zappa records when I was 3 and 4. The hippies did shit. They STOPPED the Vietnam War (eventually). They changed everything. So. Imagine their spirit mixed with our knowledge. And stop making people's lives hard. If some poor former dude wants to be called her, call her "her." Don't fucking joke about the Holocaust. Fuck. Vote Bernie. The hippies sure would (and the real ones I know, from the 60's, still here, are gonna vote Bernie!) Then pray they don't have to "Blue no matter what." But they'll do that too. What do I know. I'm just a Gen-X-er with a lot of older friends who were real S.F. hippies. And yeah. To reiterate. They were right.

  74. Axe Axeworthy

    Do you ever listen to a song and remember exactly what life was like when you first heard it?

    Bee dog

  75. Rosa Maria Ramirez Zarate

  76. Andre Metis

    Ребята, кто в Сан-Франциско?) Волшебная песня..

  77. Eco Casas

    Época em que a vida era mais bela. As músicas, as pessoas, eram mais verdadeiras, tudo era belo nessa época. Tudo era lindo, o AMOR.

  78. michele lomartire

    this song will be beatiful even 2020 wich agrees with me.

  79. 최우혁

  80. Francielle Vitor Costa

  82. Oscar Ariel CF

    Good times, that is true music.

    Buenos tiempos, eso si es verdadera música y no porquerías de reggueaton y que la chingada, Amor y paz.

    I'm no way a hippie. I was 6 years old at their height & my family were JFK blacks. But, this song does make me want to find Haight-ashbury 1967.
