Lovin' Spoonful  Summer in the City
Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck gettin' dirt-'n'-gritty
Bend down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
All around people lookin' 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 
Just bide the heat, it'll be all right 
And babe, don't you know it's a pity
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
 Dressed so fine and looking so pretty 
Cool cat, looking for a kitty  Gonna look in every corner of the city
'Til I'm wheezing like a bus stop
Runnin' upstairs, gonna meet you on the roof top
{Repeat first verse}
