Summer in the city

Lovin' Spoonful

 Hot town, summer in the city
 Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty   (*see below)
 Been down, Isn't it a pity
 Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
 All around, people looking half dead
 Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head.
 But at night it's a different world
 Go out and find a girl
 Come-on come-on and dance all night
 Despite the heat it'll be alright
And Babe, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights
In the summer, In the city, In the summer, In the city
Cool town, evening in the city
Dressing so fine and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a kitty
Gonna look in every corner of the city
Till I'm wheezing like a bus stop
Running up the stairs, gonna meet you at the rooftop.
But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come-on come-on and dance all night
Despite the heat it'll be alright
And Babe, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights
In the summer, In the city, In the summer, In the city
