We walked hand in hand from the patch 
Playing in the middle of the city 
Down the street we walked westerly 
Wind breezin' through her hair pretty 
My love in the city is good, so good

I think about my love

I know she waits for me nervously 
Trying to keep busy in the city 
Sleeping in her bed patiently 
Waiting for me, come home with love to me 
My love in the city is good, so good 
When things around me slow down, slow down 
I think about my love in the city, in the city 
I think about my love in the city, in the city 
I think about my love in the city
