Mighty Mighty Bosstones – I Want My City Back lyrics

Up around 95
Sailing down Storrow Drive
Left exit into Kenmore Square
Slowed down when I got there
And that's when it was crystal clear
It wasn't there, it wasn't where
I left it, when I left it
I want my city back
Back the way it used to be
I want it back the way it was
I looked around and found
This doesn't feel like my hometown
And I don't like the way it does feel
Stepped out to take a closer look
Held in wiht every step I took
The sadness I felt just to look around
I looked up to the Citgo Sign
You used to be a friend of mine
Do you agree with me at one time
This was once such sacred ground
But now I want my city back...
How should I feel when the place
Where I first learned I could feel
Is no longer where I left it
When I left it not so long ago
How should I feel? How should I feel?
How should I feel? I don't know
I want my city back...
