Hot town, summer in the city, back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn't it a pity, doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
All around, people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

But at night it's a different world, so nice just to be a girl
Come on and dance all night despite the heat it will be alright
And baby, don't you know it's a pity
That 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, dressing so fine and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a kitty, gonna look in every corner of the city
Till I'm wheezing just like a bus stop
Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on the rooftop

But at night it's a different world, so nice just to be a girl
Come on and dance all night despite the heat it will be alright
And baby, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights in the summer
In the city, in the summer, in the city

Hot town, summer in the city, back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn't it a pity, doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
Till I'm wheezing just like a bus stop
Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on the rooftop

But at night it's a different world, so nice just to be a girl
Come on and dance all night despite the heat it will be alright
And baby, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights in the summer
In the city, in the summer, in the city
