LYRICS

She must belong to San Francisco, she must have lost her way
Posted a poster of Pancho and Cisco one California day
She says she believes in Robin Hood and brotherhood
And colours of green and grey
All you can do is laugh at her, doesn't anybody know how to pray?

Chorus

Arizona, Take off your rainbow shades
Arizona, Come on up and look at the world, my my
Arizona, Come on you Indian braves
Arizona, Hey won't you go my way?


Live up your pride you're acting, like a teenybopper runaway child
Throw off the things from the fist of a little town saved

Arizona, Take off your hobo shoes
Arizona, Hey won't you go my way?
Ba-da-ba-da-da, Ba-da-ba-da-da .....

I'll walk you up to San Francisco, I will be guide your way
I'll be the Count of Monte Cristo, you'll be the Countess May
You can believe in Robin Hood and brotherhood or rollin' about in the hay
And I will be reading you "An Aesop's Fable", anything to make you say

Chorus Repeat Twice to fade
