In San Francisco passing through
I came upon a street named Gough;
Allergic to a street named Gough
I there began to sneeze and cough;
I parked my car beneath a bough
That overhung the street sign "Gough,"
And rested there awhile, although
I did not like the street named Gough.
No, I did not like the street named Gough
About which this is quite enough.
