(David Byrne)Think of London - small city
Dark - dark in the daytime
People sleep - sleep in the daytime
If they want to - if they want to

I'm checkin' 'em out
I'm checkin' 'em out
I've got it figured out
I've got it figured out

There's some good points - some bad points
But it all works out - I'm just a little freaked out

Find your city -
Find yourself a city to live in
I will find a city -
Find yourself a city to live in

A lot of bridges in Birmingham
A lot of ghosts - and a lot of houses
Look over there - dry ice factory
Good place to get some thinking done

I'm checkin' 'em out
I'm checkin' 'em out
I've got it figured out
I'm the one who got it figured out

There's some good points - some bad points

Find your city -
Find yourself a city to live in
I will find a city -
Find yourself a city to live in

Did I forget to mention -
Forget to mention Memphish
Home of Elvis and the ancient Greeks
Do I smell - I smell home cooking
It's only the river - it's only the river

I'm checkin' 'em out
I'm checkin' 'em out
I've got it figured out
I've got it figured out

There's some good points - some bad points
Are those things real? Denied!

Find your city -
Find yourself a city to live in
I will find a city -
Find yourself a city to live in
I will find a city -
Find yourself a city to live in
I will find a city
Find yourself a city to live in
