Summer in the City
Tim Curry Lyrics


Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck gettin' dirty-'n'-gritty
Bend down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
All around people lookin' 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 all right
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, evening in the city
Dressed so fine and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a kitty
Gonna look in every corner of the city
'Til I'm wheezing like a bus stop
Runnin' upstairs, gonna meet you on the roof top

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 all right
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

Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck gettin' dirty-'n'-gritty
Bend down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
All around people lookin' 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 all right
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

GAAAAAAAAAWD! So amazing! Love his version of this song! I love the way he does that big "in the SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMMERRRRRRRRR" and the way he laughs and asks "are your shorts sticking to your butts?" He seriously makes it all seem so effortless and there is nothing he can't do. I really wish he music career would have been more fruitful for him. Pure head to toe talent. I mean seriously, THIS is how you deliver a song, totally made it his own and the band also rocks. I have such mad respect for Tim, he is just quite incredible!
