(jagger/richards)

Walkin'thru' the sleepy city
In the dark it looks so pretty
Till i got to the one cafe
That stays open night and day

Just a lookin' at the sleepy city
In the night it looks so pretty
No one sees the city lights
They just care about the warmth inside

No one listens to what people say
I just sit and hear the radio play
Just then this girl walked in my way
And she was as pretty as my sleepy city

Will you walk through the sleepy city
In the night it looks so pretty
Tired of walkin on my own
It looks better when you're not alone

Will you walk through the sleepy city
In the night it looks so pretty
I'm tired of walkin on my own
It looks better when you're not alone

Mm mm mm mm mm mm
La la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

Will you walk through the sleepy city
In the night, well it looks so pretty
I'm tired of walkin on my own
It looks better when you're not alone

C'mon walk through that sleepy city
I said in the night it looks so pretty
I'm tired of walkin that park on my own
It looks better when you're not alone
