Summer in the City
The Standells Lyrics


Hot town, summer in the city, back of my neck getting dirty 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 at night 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 alright
And babe, don't you know it's a pity
That 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, dressing so fine and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a kitty, gonna look in every corner of the city
Till I'm wheezing at a bus stop
Running up the stairs, gonna meet you at the rooftop.

But at night 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 alright
And babe, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city, in the summer, in the city.

Hot town, summer in the city, back of my neck getting dirty 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 at night 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 alright
And babe, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city, in the summer, in the city.
