lyrics

I am happy to tell your friends
that we meant to go to San Francisco
just to play Rummy for three straight hours
and eat pie from your favorite store
and I am not the kind of man
to get so bent up about a small fiasco
I am proud to be the kind of man
that can make the best of wherever the wind blows

so why don't you tell me how it goes
when you're two years in with so and so
and you point him the wrong way to Monterey
does he make a lemon face, or a glass of lemonade?

never got to see the whales and sharks
the octopi, sea lions or manatees
back then you didn't put the stuff
that you wanted to do over wanting to be with me
it wasn't so long ago that you
told me to turn left after Ocean street
and it won't be too long until
you realize other guys don't see the world like me!

so why don't you tell me how it goes
when you're two years in with so and so
and you point him the wrong way to Monterey
does he make a lemon face, or a glass of lemonade?
