The Lovin’ Spoonful - Summer in the city
Tekst en muziek: Mark Sebastian, Steve Boone en John Sebastian
(1966)






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 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, 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
Till I’m wheezing like a bus stop
Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on 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 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



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 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
