Lyrics HOT TOWN,
SUMMER IN THE CITY,
BACK O' MY NECK
GETTING DIRT
AND GRITTY.
BEEN DOWN,
ISN'T IT A PITY
DOESN'T SEEM TO BE
A SHADOW IN THE CITY.
ALL AROUND,
PEOPLE LOOKING
HALF DEAD,
WALKING ON THE SIDEWALK
HOTTER THAN A MATCH HEAD.

BUT TONIGHT
IT'S A DIFFERENT WORLD
GO OUT
AND FIND A GIRL.
COME ON,
COME ON,
AND DANCE ALL NIGHT
DESPITE THE HEAT
IT'LL BE ALL RIGHT,
AND BABY,
DON'T YOU KNOW
IT'S A PITY
THE DAYS CAN'T BE
LIKE THE NIGHTS
IN THE SUMMER IN THE CITY,
IN THE SUMMER IN THE CITY.

COOL TOWN,
EVENING IN THE CITY,
DRESSED SO FINE
AND A-LOOKING SO PRETTY.
COOL CAT,
LOOKING FOR A KITTY
GONNA LOOK
IN EVERY CORNER OF THE CITY.
TILL I'M WHEEZING
LIKE A BUS STOP.
RUNNING UP THE STAIRS,
GONNA MEET YOU
ON THE ROOFTOP.

BUT TONIGHT
IT'S A DIFFERENT WORLD
GO OUT
AND FIND A GIRL.
COME ON,
COME ON,
AND DANCE ALL NIGHT
DESPITE THE HEAT
IT'LL BE ALL RIGHT,
AND BABY,
DON'T YOU KNOW
IT'S A PITY
THE DAYS CAN'T BE
LIKE THE NIGHTS
IN THE SUMMER IN THE CITY,
IN THE SUMMER IN THE CITY.

Lyrics YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO BE SO NICE,
I WOULD HAVE LIKED YOU ANYWAY,
IF YOU HAD JUST LOOKED
ONCE OR TWICE
AND GONE UPON YOUR QUIET WAY.
TODAY SAID THE TIME WAS RIGHT
FOR ME TO FOLLOW YOU,
I KNEW I'D FIND YOU
IN A DAY OR TWO
AND IT'S TRUE.
YOU CAME UPON A QUIET DAY,
YOU SIMPLY SEEMED
TO TAKE YOUR PLACE,
I KNEW
THAT IT WOULD BE THAT WAY
THE MINUTE
THAT I SAW YOUR FACE.

AND WHEN
WE'VE HAD A FEW MORE DAYS,
I WONDER IF I'LL GET TO SAY,
YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO BE SO NICE,
I WOULD'VE LIKED YOU ANYWAY.
TODAY SAID THE TIME WAS RIGHT
FOR ME TO FOLLOW YOU,
I KNEW I'D FIND YOU
IN A DAY OR TWO
AND IT'S TRUE.
YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO BE SO NICE,
I WOULD HAVE LIKED YOU ANYWAY,
IF YOU HAD JUST LOOKED
ONCE OR TWICE
AND GONE UPON YOUR QUIET WAY.
