I got the time I got my feet
Let's go hit the street
High in the city, high in the city
I got my mace and you got your knife
You gotta protect your own life
High in the city, high in the city

I want to get high high in the city
I want to stay alive here in the city
I want to stay high high in the city
High in the city, high in the city

Let's not walk down Sutton Place
You know everybody there got an Akitas
High in the city, high in the city
Don't want to talk politics today
I feel too good let me have my way
High in the city, high in the city

Let's grap a pie, let's hit the park
I'll kiss and hug you till it gets dark
Here in the city, getting high in the city
High in the city and you're looking so pretty
Feelin' pretty witty, gettin' high off of the city
High in the city

Watch out for that guy on your right
Seen him on the news last Saturday night
He was high in the city
Hey, look they're setting fire to that jeep
There's not much you can keep
High in the city, high in the city

I want to get high high in the city
I want to stay alive alive in the city
I want to stay high high in the city
High in the city, high in the city
So many people feeling low
And there's only one way to go to
Get high in the city, high in the city
