I'm just a city boy Born and bred It's a city life I've led My pasture was a street I've never climbed a tree But that's all right with me 'Cause I'm a city boy I'm just a city boy Born and raised From these rooftops I have gazed Where the grass was made of steel I've never plowed a field Until the pavement starts to peel I'll be a city boy I'm just a city boy Born and grown That's all I've ever known Where the lights would greet the dawn There's a factory for a farm Sure the city has its charm When you're a city boy
