The Guess Who – Back To The City lyrics

(Cummings/Winter)

Beware of lies
They'll always take you by surprise
Bringin' pieces of pain
You'll maybe never sleep again

Me and Sailor workin' on a secret relation
Down in the soda sunlight
Picked up on a jug and my calendar sweetheart
And we were rockin' lightly
We really got to rockin' lightly
Deep, deep down that's where I belong
Sweet street light never done me no wrong
I'm goin' back, back, back to the city

So beware of man
He'll never tell you where you stand
Bringin' pieces of pain
You'll maybe never sleep again

Tinker, tailor, sailor, mailer
Bows and buttons
Thank you all for reason
Meet me in the alley where the road gets dark
And we'll be rockin' lightly
Deep, deep down that's where I belong
Sweet street light never done me no wrong
I'm goin' back, back, back to the city
