Take a walk around midnight in the City
Young Blood is hiding there somewhere
If your looking for something to do
There's always something happening there

Like I and Bragger, we borrowed a coup today
Here come Pepe and she's got a friend in a Chevrolet
But she ain't running, she just walking a little slow,
and she ain't crying, she's just singin a little low...

"They say this city will make you dirty, but you look alright,
you feel real pretty when he's holding you tight"
City will make you mean
But that's the make up on your face
Love will wash you clean in the nights disgrace.

Find a block where your people can find you
Keep a third eye watching behind you
You never know when your making a memory
They will wish they were here together again, someday

Kids looking for something to get into take a look
Two for the movie show
Three in the back row
Hold on tight!

Remember you might have looked like cool twelve
But your fuse felt just like dynamite
City will make you dirty, but you look alright,
you feel real pretty when he's holding you tight
City will make you mean
But that's the make up on your face
Love will wash you clean in the night... dirty dirty dirt dirt...

Take a walk around midnight in the City
Young Blood will find you there somewhere
and if your looking for something to do
There's always something happening there
Something's happening there oooh ooh ooooh
Something's happening there hey hey hey... looky here y'all
