lyrics

in the old San Francisco bay
there's a girl a typewriter girl born on the first day of summer in 1928
this girl the typewriter girl rides into work on her bicycle every day
she types out every letter of every word that everybody did say
this girl the typewriter girl waves to the drum major leading the ticker tape parade
the ink on her dress leaves a stain in the shape of a blade

in the old san francisco bay
there's a girl a typewriter girl riding to work on her bicycle everyday
on the first day of summer in 1948
this girl the typewriter girl under the wheels of a cable car did break

such innocent innocent innocent innocent eyes
in an innocent innocent innocent innocent face
its a cruel cruel cruel typewriter world
gave her a cruel cruel cruel machinery fate

in the old san francisco bay
there's a girl a typewriter girl died on the first day of summer in 1948
