Coffer cafe's dizzy with city lights
Concrete sidewalks busy with friendly fights
But that's alright, baby, it's alright
Come, go with me and you will see
City life, city life

Loud paper boys yelling yesterday's news
A peddler man selling what you can't use
That's alright, baby, it's alright
Come, go with me, you will see
City life, city life

I need you when the sun goes down
You pick me up when you're around
Come on, come on now, we can have a good time
This town ain't much unless you're here with me

It's like a woman
Crazy just like a puppy, lazy
Just like a pretty jealous wife
I can't get free from city life

Secluded bars humming behind the scenes
Hot wild guitars strumming, promising dreams
That's alright, baby, it's alright
Come, go with me and you will see
City life, city life

I don't want to be alone
Stay with me now, don't go home
It's a date, we'll stay out late and party
City life's okay when you're with me

It's like a lion sleeping
Just like a willow weeping
A melting pot for fun and strife
Can't get away from city life

City life, baby, city life
It's alright, baby, it's alright
City life
