(words & music by giant - baum - kaye)When shadows beckon on dim-lit avenuesNight people hear the callFrom hidden alleys, secret rendezvousThey come out one and allThe city by night I’m wide awakeIt never sleeps make no mistakeWhatever sets off the sparkA magic glow lights the darkThen I’m intrigued by the sightOf the city by nightThose crowded nightclubsThose picturesque cafesAre scenes no-one forgetsAnd I’m enchanted, music softly playsBy dancing silhouettesThe city by night I’m wide awakeIt never sleeps make no mistakeThe evening’s full of surpriseIt’s magic opens my eyesAnd I’m intrigued by the sightOf the city by nightYeah!
