The Wheat’s Coming In Real Nice at San Francisco Centre – Lower Than, As High As, and Higher Than an Elephant’s Eye

Friday, September 30th, 2016

As seen from Market Street:

There’s a bright golden haze in the window,
There’s a bright golden haze in the window,
The wheat is as high as an elephant’s eye,
An’ it looks like its climbin’ clear up to the sky.

Chorus:
Oh what a beautiful morning,
Oh what a beautiful day,
I’ve got a wonderful feeling,
Everything’s going my way.

Repeat chorus

Mannequins are standing like statues,
Mannequins are standing like statues,
They don’t turn their heads as they see me ride by.
But a little brown mav’rick is winking her eye.

Repeat chorus

All the sounds of the earth are like music,
All the sounds of the earth are like music,
The breeze is so busy it don’t miss a tree,
And an ol’ Weepin’ Willer is laughin’ at me.

Repeat chorus

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

The fake cherry trees of January are now a deep purple, ’cause they’re plum trees.

That means that the cherry trees you see these days are real cherry.
