Summer in the City
The Stranglers Lyrics


Hot town summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down isn't it a pity
Doesn't seen to be a shadow in the city
All around me people looking half dead
Choking on the sidewalk, it's hotter than a match head
At night it's a different town
Go out and find a girl
Come on come on and dance all night
Just what you need, it will be alright
And babe 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 meeting in the city
Dressed 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 the bus stop
Running up the stairs gonna meet you on the roof top

At night it's a different town, go out and find a girl
Come on come on and dance all night
Just what you need it will be alright
And babe don't you know it's a pity
The days can't be like the night
In the summer in the city
In the summer in the city

One of the great cover tunes by the Stranglers - I like it more than the Lovin' Spoonful original version.

Fantastic band legends.

Richard Olds

written in red by the stranglers is still a great CD despite being compared to first ten albums when Hugh Cornwall was in band he left , Paul and john came in left band , baz came in jet retired , and Jim's taken over , different periods but band still goes on , new CD 2019 , new songs new memories and hopefully new tour and movie as well ,

This is quite a good cover from a not so good album.
