Notes

This song celebrates the Sugar Hill club in San Francisco. The song includes the following lyrics;

I've got the blues for San Francisco, it's where I long to be
I've got the blues for San Francisco, it's where I long to be
There's a club they call Sugar Hill, and that's where I long to be

Everybody starts to jumpin', when the clock is strikin' nine
Yes the house starts rockin', when the clock is strikin' nine
There's so many fine chicks walk in the door, make a single man lose his mind

The name is Sugar Hill Club, it's the home of the natural blues
Name is the Sugar Hill Club, the home of the natural blues
You get nothing but big legged women and the fine booze, oh Jack and it's heavy dues
