Summer in the city

Lovin' Spoonful



 CmBb
 Hot town, summer in the city
 FAb
 Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty   (*see below)
 CmBb
 Been down, Isn't it a pity
 FAb
 Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
 GG7
 All around, people looking half dead
 CmC
 Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head.
CHORUS:
 FBb
 But at night it's a different world
 FBb
 Go out and find a girl
 FBb
 Come-on come-on and dance all night
 FBb
 Despite the heat it'll be alright
 DmG
And Babe, don't you know it's a pity
 DmG
That the days can't be like the nights
 DmGDmG
In the summer, In the city, In the summer, In the city
VERSE 2:
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
Bridge has two parts -=1/16note
