Joni Mitchell – Night In The City lyrics

Light up light up
Light up your lazy blue eyes
Moon's up nights up
Taking the town by surprise
Night time night time
Day left an hour ago
City light time
Must you get ready so slow
There are places to come from and places to go

Night in the city looks pretty to me
Night in the city looks fine
Music comes spilling out into the street
Colors go flashing in time

Take off take off
Take off your stay-at-home shoes
Break off shake off
Chase off those stay-at-home blues
Stairway stairway
Down to the crowds in the street
They go their way
Looking for faces to greet
But we run on laughing with no one to meet

Night in the city looks pretty to me
Night in the city looks fine
Music comes spilling out into the street
Colors go waltzing in time

    Joni Mitchell's delightful performance of this in the 1960's Greenwich village coffee cafes was a breath of fresh, prairie air.
    Amid the gravitas of the protest and social commentary songs of the burgeoning New York folk scene here was a young, sweet faced country girl expressing her joy in the bright lights of the city. Her newcomer' s excitement is palpable.
    She went on to produce a vast catalog of profound, life changing songs but here - she is simply having fun.
