(hey man) oh leave me alone you know
(hey man) oh henry, get off the phone, I gotta
(hey man) I gotta straighten my face
This mellow thighed chick just put my spine out of place

(hey man) my schooldays insane
(hey man) my works down the drain
(hey man) well she's a total blam-blam
She said she had to squeeze it but she..and then she..

Oh don't lean on me man, cause you can't afford the ticket
Im back from suffragette city
Oh don't lean on me man
Cause you aint got time to check it
You know my suffragette city
Is outta sight...shes all right

(hey man) ah henry, don't be unkind, go away
(hey man) I can't take you this time, no way
(hey man) droogie don't crash here
There's only room for one and here she comes, here she comes

Oh don't lean on me man, cause you can't afford the ticket
Im back on suffragette city
Oh don't lean on me man
Cause you aint got time to check it
You know my suffragette city
Is outta sight...shes all right

Oh hit me!

Oh don't lean on me man, cause you can't afford the ticket
Im back from suffragette city
Oh don't lean on me man
Cause you aint got time to check it
You know my suffragette city
Don't lean on me man, cause you can't afford the ticket
Im back from suffragette city
Oh don't lean on me man
Cause you aint got time to check it
You know my suffragette city
Is outta sight...shes all right

A suffragette city, a suffragette city
Im back on suffragette city, Im back on suffragette city
Ooo, sufraggete city, ooo, suffragette city
Oooh-how, sufragette city, oooh-how, sufragette,

Ohhh, wham bam thank you maam!
A suffragette city, a suffragette city
Quite all right
A suffragette city
Too fine
A suffragette city, ooh, a sufragette city
Oh, my sufragette city, oh my suffragette city
Oh, suffragette
Suffragette!
