I didn't know what time it was until the sun went down
Detroit Michigan on the bus downtown
Last night I was fighting on the street
But tonight I have a girl next to me in this cold world
She brings me heat

I got a good feeling in a bad city tonight
I gotta good feeling everything's gonna be alright
Some run some fight
I got a good feeling in a bad city tonight

Detained in illegal custody spent the night in jail
With a drunken priest and a hooker $500 bail
Nobody knew who was who standing in the street like that
I hit the ground to make a sound

I got a good feeling in a bad city tonight
I gotta good feeling everything's gonna be alright
Some run some fight
I got a good feeling in a bad city tonight

Bus droped me off and I had to cough I couldn't breath
'cuz I got ripped off I couldn't realize by being satisfied 'cause it runs so thin
And that's why im pissed off we had no money we had time
She had the champagne I had the cisco wine
She said do you want to come you better hurry because
We'll have hell to pay
