Get to the heart
Baby, the heart of the city
Meet me in a fire fight
Of lusty boys in candlelight
Beat to the heart, baby the heart of the city
Veins pop and cry for more
And lick it off the killing floor


D-d-d-downtown c'mon
D-d-d-downtown c'mon
D-d-d-downtown c'mon
D-d-d-d-downtown akron!


Move to the beat. baby the beat of the city
Rubber glove me when you love me
Promise me protection
Dance to the heat, baby the heat of the city
Glorify my oozing head
And raise me from the living dead


D-d-d-downtown c'mon
D-d-d-downtown c'mon
D-d-d-downtown c'mon
D-d-d-d-downtown akron!


Downtown me - baby strip me
Chop me, adopt me, bend me like a rubber dolly
Downtown me - demolition me
Raise me, appraise me, the portage hotel and me
Downtown me - with a lobotomy
Take me to the cuyahoga valley and make a man of me


Get to the heart, baby the heart of the city
Say you love it when you shove it
Don't be sentimental
Move to the heart, baby - the heart of the city
This is where the future lies
Beneath the burning sulphur skies


D-d-d-downtown c'mon
D-d-d-downtown c'mon
D-d-d-downtown c'mon
D-d-d-d-downtown akron!
