GK: San Diego ----- (SEAGULLS, SURF) a beautiful city with a Mexican flavor (LATIN DANCING, SS SPANISH), a city of perpetual summer most of the time. But for some San Diegans, it’s just too much. The freeways. (TRAFFIC) the helicopters going overhead day and night (HELICOPTERS)—the price of real estate (FN: HOW MUCH? A HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR THIS???). Why not try Minnesota? (LOON). A reasonably pleasant state on America’s other border, Minnesota offers an interesting variety of weather conditions. It’s quiet,especially at this time of year. (QUIET WIND, DISTANT OWL). In northern Minnesota, you can buy a 3-bedroom house for less than you’d pay for a garage in San Diego. The people are courteous.

Minnesota. It’s quiet. It’s cheap. It’s mannerly. And it’s interesting, in its own way (WIND) Maybe it’s the place for you after all.

(BIG CHORDS)

JEARLYN (TO “NATURAL WOMAN”):
Maybe it’s time
Maybe it’s time
You think about Minnesota……
