Neil Sedaka – City Boy lyrics

Country livin' really gets me down
So I'm headin' for the lights of town
Gonna kiss the country life goodbye
I got myself a brand new high

Funky music where the lights are bright
Tell the ladies I'll be there tonight
It's a paradise of push and shove
I gotta get back to the streets I love

Chorus
I tried to fake it I couldn't make it
Down in my soul I'm a city boy, city boy
I tried to hide it, it's been decided
Don't you just know I'm a city boy, boy
Oh I gotta satisfy it
Take me up town and let me boogie all night long
Oh I hate the peace and quiet
I gotta yell, I gotta shout, I gotta dance till I burn myself out

I gotta be me, I gotta be free
Welcome me home I'm a city boy, city boy
And now I know it, well don't I show it
Mama take a look at your city boy, city boy

Music

Bring it on home, bring it on home to me
Bring it on home, bring it on home to me

It's the only place I've ever been
Where they never pull the sidewalks in
Life's a party and you can't go wrong
Cos Saturday night lasts a whole week long

I tried to fake it I couldn't make it
Down in my soul I'm a city boy, city boy
I tried to hide it, it's been decided
Don't you just know I'm a city boy, boy
Oh I gotta satisfy it
Take me up town and let me boogie all night long
Oh I hate the peace and quiet
I gotta yell, I gotta shout, I gotta dance till I burn myself out

I gotta be me, I gotta be free
Welcome me home I'm a city boy, city boy
And now I know it, well don't I show it
Mama take a look at your city boy, city boy
