THEY TOOK MY HOME IN SAN FRANCISCO

THEY TOOK MY HOME IN SAN FRANCISCO
(To tune of “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” by George Cory & Douglas Cross, recorded and made famous by Tony Bennett (Columbia Records, 1962)) 

They took my home in San Francisco
For taxes owed I didn’t pay
Been riding little cable cars
Because they took my cars
My bank accounts
Had large amounts
Now who counts?

I lived the life in San Francisco
Now from the bridge into the bay
I’ll jump, tell IRS
Keep San Francisco
I’ve filed my last return today
