Coffer cafe's dizzy with city lights, concrete sidewalks busy with friendly fights
But that's alright baby, it's alright come go with me and you will see city life, city life
Loud paper boys yelling yesterday's news, a pedlar man selling what you can't use
That's alright baby, it's alright come go with me, you will see city life, city life
I need you when the sun goes down, you pick me up when you're around
Come on, come on now, we can have a good time, this town ain't much unless you're here with me
It's like a woman, crazy just like a puppy, lazy
Just like a pretty jealous wife, I can't get free from city life
Secluded bars humming behind the scenes, hot wild guitars strumming, promising dreams
That's alright baby, it's alright come go with me and you will see city life, city life
I don't want to be alone, stay with me now, don't go home
It's a date, we'll stay out late and party, city lifes okay when you're with me
It's like a lion sleeping just like a willow weeping,
A melting pot for fun and strife can't get away from city life
