Summer in the City    (John Sebastian/Steve Boone)


Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
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 sharp and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a kitty
Gonna look in every corner of the city

Till I'm wheezing at 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
