To the citiest people in the whole wide world
You've been unkind to an un-city girl
From the stone walls you grew
So I'm not blaming you
But look what the city
Just look how the city
Has taken a pretty
And made an ugly of you
Just look what the city is doin' to you

To the citiest people in the citiest towns
I'm not the one to be putting you down
From the stone walls you grew
But I grew there too
And I know that the city
The dirty old city
Can take such a pretty
And make an ugly of you
Just look what the city is doin' to you
