Summer in the City    Lovin’ Spoonful (#1 in 1966), Joe Jackson

Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck gettin’ dirt-’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
    Just bide 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
  Chorus, repeat all
