Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 3]

Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck gettin' dirty-'n'-gritty
Been 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

/ Am - Am7 - / D9 - Fmaj7 E / : / E - E7 - / Am - A - /

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

/ D - G - / / / / Bm - E - / / / / 

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


{Repeat first verse}
